About Julia A.

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.

This tutor does not fill the total time paid for. If the student has no more questions, rather than structuring the lesson like other tutors he will simply finish early! I am sure he is very knowledgable, but his accent is very strong, making learning a newer subject harder through trying to understand new words with a strong accent.
A fan was constantly ticking in the background, and he admitted his internet connection was poor.

About Simeon S.

Close

Physics is my favorite subject to teach! I scored a 5 on AP Physics exam, 800 on the SAT II Physics subject test, and I've completed two semesters of Physics at Harvard.

About Simeon
The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience.

I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 respectively), though I too had to work hard to get there, so I know what it's like when you're just starting out.

Over the years, I've worked with students suffering from ADD, autism, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, speech disorders, and depression; I personally grew up inured to social anxiety, so I can always empathize.

Some tutors will tell you that they know all the tricks and shortcuts. But really, there are no tricks. No shortcuts. Just hard work and sleepless nights and talking to yourself while brushing your teeth in the morning
trying to remember the quadratics formula.

*****************************************************

I have a decade of experience and a vast collection of study materials that I can share with you for free. I've had the privilege to help hundreds of students with everything from college applications and essays to Creative Writing and Calculus, not to mention the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, ASVAB, and AP and SAT II subject tests, like Literature, Statistics, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry as well.

I absolutely love writing, of course, so I can teach you how to write an action scene or listen to a poem.

Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

About Ben K.

Close

I come from an engineering background so math and science have always been a part of my life. I have been tutoring Calculus and Physics for years and enjoy the opportunity to work with others to help them understand it as well.

I am a goal oriented individual and that comes through in my teaching. I try to be as objective as I can, working towards tests, homework, quizzes. Going through practice problems is often the best way of identifying challenges and strengthening your knowledge as a whole. Whatever you decide your math and science goal is, I am looking forward to helping you work towards it.

About Ben
“It is not the critic that counts”

Commonly attributed to Theodore Roosevelt, The Man the Arena is about action, striving and failure. We all have our own journeys and our own goals. I am a strong believer in working towards goals but any goal worth achieving will have its fair share of failure along the way. There is nothing wrong with failing, we all have our challenges, what matters is taking the risk to succeed.

About Chris H.

Close

Available to tutor for all high school level and most standard undergraduate courses in physics.

About Chris
I am a US Navy submarine veteran and former field engineer with expertise on electro-mechanical systems who traded in his heavy tools for even heavier textbooks. Prior to leaving industrial fields, it was often a part of my job to train new personnel on equipment, maintenance practices, and documentation, which I really did enjoy and so I decided to become a teacher. Now I truly enjoy both teaching and learning. I am currently graduate student (again), now earning a Master of Science degree in astronomy and will likely continue with my PhD in astrophysics.

I have taught physics and chemistry at local high schools for the past 6 years and really enjoy the subject material, regardless of whether it is calculus-based or algebra-based. although I really do enjoy teaching mechanics and electricity the most. I always bring a good sense of
humor and positive attitude to all of my lessons and try to make physics interesting and fun.

Jennifer has been the biggest blessing to our family by coaching my daughter! Despite my daughter being an all honors and AP student there is still so much that she has learned from Jennifer. My daughter has benefited greatly from how Jennifer explains the concepts with patience and knowledge of the material. My daughter has described Jennifer as “ really nice and easy to talk to and ask questions”. Jeniffer has coached my daughter in AP Chemistry, Precalc and currently AP Calculus and SAT. As a mom, it’s the best thing when you know that your child will do well in a class because Jennifer is there to help her! You will be so pleased if you work with Jennifer and you definitely reach you goal of doing very well in the class! Thanks a million Jennifer for helping my daughter achieve her goal!!!!

Jennifer has tutored me 5 times so far and she is amazing! She has a way of explaining even the most complicated problems and makes them easy to understand. She is very patient and understanding. There has not been a geometry question that I have had yet that she isn't able to break down into simple and understandable steps. I have used other tutors as well prior to using Jennifer and I will never go back. I have already scheduled with her for an additional 4 times! I usually send her my questions the night before our lesson and she is completely prepared the next day. She even has a copy of my textbook for her to reference as well!

Jennifer is a wonderful tutor who not only has deep expertise in her subjects but knows how to take that expertise and help her students to become better students. The result is that her students are able to retain what is taught in various subjects. My daughter has been tutored for years by Jennifer and is an honors student. We definitely believe that Jennifer is a major factor in her success. We recommend her highly and as my daughter has matured during her time with Jennifer, she values her insight and advice as she plans to take the next steps toward college admission. We are very fortunate to have a resource in our community that not only we as parents value, but that the students themselves value too.
