About Julia A.

Close
New York, NY
View Full Profile

I tutor high school and college students, and help them get ahead of the program and stand out from their peers in subjects such as chemistry (first year and organic), mathematics (algebra, calculus, vector calculus, and differential equations), physics (classical Newtonian, modern, and electromagnetism), and English essay writing skills.

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

Currently teaching and tutored many students in Chemistry from High School to College level. I have brought many failing or just passing students to B+'s and A's. I myself took advanced Chemistry at UPenn, and also took AP Chemistry. In addition to reinforcing the fundamentals, and dissecting advanced material so it is more easily understood, my plan to initially is to examine my student's thought process, and then deconstruct their approach so it becomes more systematic and methodical.

About Craig
Welcome students and parents: You may not know it yet, but stumbling upon my page may change your life for the better. With me, your immersion into the world of science and education may open up opportunities that may alter your children's future path.

I have tutored students at the junior/high school, and college levels. As a teaching assistance for undergraduates at the Ivy league, the Univ of Pennsylvania, I teach pupils to dissect problems and challenges into manageable components. This was my stepping stone into a professorial role. I am originally from NYC, and attended Stuyvesant, so I also help tutor students with the SSAT and SHSAT. Knowledge and understanding alone does not make a good educator, it is the ability to transmit such skills which is remarkable.

I have a Master's of Science of Biochemical Engineering from the
University of Pennsylvania, and a Bachelor's of Science in biomedical sciences from King's College, University of London.

Craig is a marvelous tutor. For my twins, he brought up their MATH SAT 130 and 150 points respectively. With my middle schooler he has helped bring up her SSAT to the 94% (percentile) getting her into our top choice. He is thorough and meticulous tutor teaching them how to find and fix their own mistakes.

I have experienced 5 years of teaching in general chemistry and other sciences!

About Milka
My name is Milka. I have been tutoring for about 8 years now. I am an MB3 (Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics and Biochemistry) Major. I believe students learn science by doing science, and that my classes are a medium through which my students will learn life skills that are critical for their success in college and future careers. As our students must be prepared to work cooperatively in a global and technological society where many of them will eventually hold jobs that do not yet exist, I emphasize critical thinking and problem solving, using our science content to develop good evidence-based reasoning and communication skills.

Gainesville, FL

Chemistry is everyone's hidden passion (not really)! As we're delving in the material I'll constantly draw connections to Biology, Organic Chemistry, Genetics, and even physics... these connections are important to filter out the nonsense from the material that is ubiquitous in all of the advanced sciences. I'm an undergraduate at the University of Florida who, previously obsessed with Biology, found comfort in the systematic nature of Chemistry.Lets do this!

About Jairo
To whom it may concern,

My name is Jairo H. and I'm a Microbiology student at the University of Florida. I have attended the University of Florida, a top 8 Public Institution, since August 2017 and I have maintained a 4.0 GPA. With all the flamboyance aside, I attribute my success partially to circumstance but majorly to hard work and perseverance. My deepest desire is to excite you about the world of Chemistry and Biology, in hopes to inspire within you a thirst for empirical knowledge.

See you soon!

Whether your student hopes to be the next Louis Pasteur or is just trying to fulfill a high school science requirement, I would be honored to help guide them through the process. I help students hone the math skills needed to be successful in a chemistry class as well as encourage them to observe how this fascinating science applies in every day life.

About Emily
I hold a B.A. in Communications from Thomas Edison State University. I have been tutoring elementary through high school students for two years. I aim to not only help my students gain proficiency in their subjects but also to share my love of learning with them and to teach them skills that will help them throughout the remainder of their education. During my senior year, I conducted a research project that examined how personality type influences communication style; I strive to use this knowledge to understand the unique needs and learning styles of each student I work with. I also have a background in amateur theatre, having acted in and directed several productions. In my spare time, I enjoy writing, reading on a wide variety of topics, and hiking.

Emily has taught my daughters for over 2 years now. In that time they have grown tremendously and I'm so thankful for Emily's work with them. Emily is excellent at building relationships with kids. My girls feel seen by her and this has helped them be willing to work with her. I'll be the first to admit my girls aren't always the easiest, but Emily never blinks. She handles everything with a smile and is able to get them back on track.

Emily is a delightful role model and I'm also thankful that my girls have gotten to see her enthusiasm for learning and life.

About Derek B.

Close

I have taught physics, chemistry, and math (from simple calculations, algebra, and geometry through to calculus) in classroom settings and as a tutor for over 10 years, before which I studied and worked as an environmental engineer. With the sciences, particularly, I find it helpful for students to understand some of the history of the evidence for why we currently think the way we do. For instance, it's useful to trace how people used to think about atoms and how they do now, especially looking at the evidence for why that model of an atom has changed.

At my school, I was the teacher infamous for answering a question with a question in order to lead the student from what they already know through reasoning out an answer, which can sometimes take a little more time and effort than just giving the student the answer. Research proves that this is the best way to solidify your learning for deep mastery, though. Don't worry - I won't let you get too frustrated or ever abandon you

About Derek
Initially trained in environmental engineering, I made the switch to teaching after spending two years as a volunteer teacher abroad. From there, I went on to earn my Masters in Teaching at Seattle University and to teach at public and private schools for the last 10+ years. I've tutored elementary students for whom English is a second language in math, tutored calculus, taught geometry and algebra, high school physics, and introduced a new curriculum to my school for the honors chemistry class, which I also taught.

I'm a big fan of learning by inquiry (especially for science and geometry), which involves trying something out and exploring it a bit, then processing what you experienced through conversation and critical thinking. I understand that not every student is looking for this, though, so if you're just looking to get throu
gh tonight's homework, I'm there for you, too!

Though I'm originally from Washington State, I recently moved to Canada with my wife and three young kids. I'm a lifelong fan of J.R.R. Tolkien (author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings), hiking, permaculture, and enjoying our miraculous universe. We're hoping someday soon to build our own little hobbit-hole house homestead...
