About Rod
I specialize in Test Prep (middle/high school Common Core, Regents, SHSAT, etc), college/graduate admissions tests (i.e. SAT/ACT, GRE) and tutor a number of academic subjects in Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Combinatorics), Statistics and Science (especially Physics). I am particularly interested in Number Theory, Systems Engineering (Feedback Theory), Electronics (Analog Circuit Design), Cosmology. In the social sciences, I was practically exposed to Marketing and HR/Corporate Strategy. I have bachelor's and master's degrees in electronics engineering and business respectively and I enjoy tutoring both children and adults.

My interests also include gifted learning and STEM education. For example, I was successful in helping a 5-year old pass the NYC Gifted & Talented Test so he could e
nroll in any school participating in the program in New York City.

I have several years of work experience as an engineer (hardware+software) and as business developer in multinational companies and startups and this has given me deeper and practical insights into personality and intelligence so I can perhaps bring some encouragement relevant to your current/future vocation. Furthermore, as I have learned from experience, there are three best tools for learning: practice, practice and more practice!

Tutoring for yourself or for your son/daughter is both an investment in time and money for a future return so please also plan accordingly. I only tutor only on occasions when I am available so I am quite happy to be part of someone's educational journey but kindly make sure that you have a very flexible schedule also. When there is a match in both schedule and objectives, I consider it indeed a very special privelege to be able to help a student because it is my experience that effective education can be life-changing.

Tutoring Rate (IMPORTANT): I only do in-person tutoring because I believe effective learning is multi-dimensional and personal not flat and distant. My minimum lesson length is 1.5 hours for Academic subjects and 2.0 hours for Test Prep. My rates for children and teens will be in principle the same as adults because I invest at least an equivalent amount of time and effort and I have to consider at least 2 individuals compared with an adult student (so in reality, I have to charge more)! Different arrangements possible on a case-by-case basis and in general I do offer DISCOUNTS for 5 lessons or more after the first session (see each subject rate for more details). Finally, I am aware that other tutors may be in a better position to meet your budget and situation so we have to accept that.

When I am not tutoring, I am involved in projects related to technology, hospitality and service industries. I also enjoy cooking especially when I can make an ordinary dish into something extraordinary by adding that little "extra."

I asked Rod to work with my daughter on geometry to help her get ready for 9th grade. Rod explains each concept and its application very well. His lessons are appropriate for grade level but also challenging. I am particularly happy that my daughter is learning a broader approach to problem solving and critical thinking. As a scientist (PhD in chemistry) and a mother of a teenager, I appreciate Rod’s approach as it will provide a solid foundation for my daughter’s learning for many years to come. And he is always on time and gives me an overview of what was covered and what will be covered after each lesson. I highly recommend him.

I has reached out Rod at the point in which I resigned and I was expecting to get "B" in my statistics class. I was not confident and constantly struggled in responding to the test questions because I was not sure of concepts. Rod explained me concepts step by step in a very simple way also, by drawing the graphs and that everything was clear for me as visual person. He was able to answered and explained all my questions that I was well prepared and confident on my final exam. Thanks to him I gained the necessary knowledge and I ended with "A".

We originally solicited Rod's support in order to help get our 8th grade daughter up to speed in math class. With high school rapidly approaching, we wanted to ensure that her footing was solid for the rigors of the high school curriculum. As the New York State testing approached, we asked Rod to take some time in the weekly sessions to work on test-taking skills and to do a bit of brushing up on skills that my daughter may run into trouble with. I had my daughter take last year's 8th grade state test (which I found a copy of online), and asked Rod to review her work and help address the learning gaps. Rod's approach was to help my daughter recognize that she actually did know how to do many of the questions that she answered correctly, and with helping her reframe some of the questions, she was able to recognize that the test was not in fact, blind siding her which did wonders for her confidence. Rod spent ample time discussion stress reduction techniques, both before and after the test. As an incredibly supportive gesture, he followed up with us after each of the test days in order to inquire as to how she did, and show she was feeling overall. Rod's contribution definitely helped alleviate her anxiety and bolstered her confidence. By the end of the test she felt confident that she had performed to the best of her ability.

If you look me up on the web, you will find that I am a principal artist on the world's great opera and concert stages. Such a career is only possible by working with the very best people. Finding the right teachers and coaches is almost an art in-and-of-itself. Patrick, is most assuredly one of those teachers. His knowledge of the computer and several challenging disciplines is unmatched in that he knows how to convey that knowledge. I not only learned from him, I enjoyed my lessons.

I hired Paul last November to help my daughter, Kara, with her middle school NYSSMA audition. Paul assessed my daughter, asking her to play a song she already knew and took notes on what she was already good at and what to improve on. When Paul taught Kara her NYSSMA solo, he was very meticulous, paid much attention to Kara's playing, and taught her techniques on how to correct certain mistakes and methods on how to improve what was already good to make her stick out. On the date of her NYSSMA audition, she was very confident, got a perfect score, and made it into the All-County Band :).
I could not recommend Paul more. His experience and methods of teaching technique especially caught my eye, and is what differentiates him from other instructors. He is very patient, kind, honest, and sits down with you to set realistic expectations and goals and how to achieve them. I still book him today for my daughter who is now in High School and has even made All-State Bands because of Paul. He may be in college, but he has music wisdom way beyond his years!!

Thank you Paul for all you do,
Peggy Ghiraldi

Larissa was a great tutor. Twice a week after school she helped my daughter in math and reading. I watched my daughter go from below grade level in math and reading to exceeding expectations on her final report card. She was dependable and always set high expectations for her. she never let her get off easy. And it truly worked wonders.

About Andrea
I am a comedy writer and screenwriter based in Brooklyn, NY.

I specialize in creative writing, academic writing, and college admissions essays. Whether you or your child wants to improve their writing, loves writing but experiences writer's block or an inability to actually DO the writing, or wants to workshop essays for a class, application, or personal project, I am excited to work together with my students and help them achieve their goals.

At Tufts University I studied English with a focus in creative writing. In school I wrote a mix of analytical papers and creative works, culminating in a fiction thesis. In school I taught a successful weekly creative writing class to homeschooled students, helping them improve their writing and create new and engaging stories that they later submitted to contests and magazines around the Northe
ast. Since graduating from school, I have gravitated towards comedy writing. I approach my teaching and tutoring with humor and believe that tutoring and learning is a fun experience. Combatting students' writer's block has always been a personal favorite challenge of mine as well!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

My son had a wonderful creative writing experience with Andrea. She used fun prompts and writing exercises and provided extensive feedback. We loved that she encouraged the students to submit their writings for publication which resulted in our son getting one of his stories published in a national kid's literary magazine last summer.
