About Jennifer
I have a Master's degree in music. My purpose as a teacher is to utilize all of my skills and education to realize my students' goals. I strive to inspire students towards musical excellence! I do this with much positive reinforcement, dialogue and critical analysis. With adults and advanced students, I include self-evaluation and discussion with the student so that they can become involved in their own development and musicianship.

*** Lesson Details ***
Tailoring each lesson to the individual needs of my students, I use a multi-faceted approach that includes memory, sight reading, ear-training and theory. This way students quickly build their repertoire and confidence on their instrument. Sing-a-longs train the musical ear, clapping reinforces rhythmic training, and new, exciting music strengthens reading skills. We often pla
y together, or have mini concerts to display the finished product of students' labor and encourage them towards new musical heights!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Grand Piano, Acoustic/Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar and my jeep

*** Specialties ***
When teaching piano, because I specialize in classical, I emphasize sight-reading, theory and performance from the very first lesson. As soon as possible, I have student memorize pieces appropriate to their level. I begin each lesson with memory work, move into sight-reading and analysis of the new work, or exercise. This way a student has a multi-faceted approach to music they are learning, and once they have learned it, they are continually adding to their repertoire. I work this way because many students are overwhelmed at the beginning of the learning stage. Examining the theory behind the composition helps them understand it, and approach it with less apprehension. Also, having pieces they can play from memory every week reminds them of the finished product of their labor and encourages them towards the new work.

Math can be applied everywhere. The tool for solving problems!

About Tommy
Greetings! My name is Tommy Huang, and I am an expert in Mathematics. I am happy to offer tutoring services for anyone who wants help learning Mathematics. Helping others has always been a major passion of mine, and I am thrilled that I have the opportunity to pass my knowledge and skills on to others.

I earned my Master’s degree in Statistics and Applied Mathematics, and my Bachelor’s degree was in Mathematics and Economics. I first started working as a Math tutor during my undergrad years, and I continue to help students to this day. Through the years, I have worked as both a classroom teacher, as well as a private tutor. As a tutor, I have taught at several colleges, learning centers and even private homes.

Most of my students are Middle School, High School, or College students who either need extra assistance in Math or are loo
king to get ahead and learn advanced material. With my help, students improve their grades and gain confidence in their Math skills. Additionally, I also regularly assist students in preparing for the Math sections on important Standardized Tests, such as the SAT and the ACT. Most of my students report that they achieve highly-desirable results on these tests thanks to my help.

I teach my students how to recognize patterns and how to apply appropriate problem-solving techniques whenever they encounter a certain type of problem. Math is all about recognizing problems and applying the appropriate steps in order to reach a solution. Once a student knows how to recognize problems and use the correct techniques to reach a desired outcome, they can accomplish almost anything in Math.

My favorite aspect of tutoring is having the ability to teach something I love, while also working to improve the lives of others. It gives me great joy whenever I am able to help a student overcome their obstacles and achieve success. I really enjoy Math, and I want to show my students that Math can be fun and exciting with a little bit of practice. I believe that anyone can learn Math if they put their mind to it.

I offer competitive rates for my tutoring services, and I guarantee outstanding results. If you have any questions, or you would like to inquire about receiving tutoring, please send me a message, and I will return it as soon as possible. Thanks, and have a great day!

- Tommy Huang

I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man.

A little about myself. I was enrolled in a top mathematical high school and won multiple mathematical olympiads starting at a young age. I graduated university with honors and the highest departmental distinction. While at the university I served as a teaching assistant and tutored other students, because I love to explain math and help students understand it.

Mathematics and teaching are still my big passions. I’ve taught math classes at a local school as well as tutored studen
ts of all ages and all levels. I am committed to helping students succeed in any math course.

Massapequa Park, NY

Math has always come easy to me, and I'm well aware that's not the case for everybody. I recently returned to school for Applied Math, and have graduate credits in Advanced Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Probability theory. More importantly for most, I know how to explain concepts to students in a way they can understand, and also how to expose an often rote and dull subject for many as the endlessly fascinating subject it is.

About Erik E.
Basically, I'm very good at what I do. If you want someone who's a fountain of information, who can give you hours of background and detail on a Chopin piece or the like, and knows what it takes to get to the point where you can pretty much play anything, I'm your guy. If you want someone to teach your daughter Mary Had A Little Lamb, I can do that too, and that's often where it all starts!

I've been teaching for 12 years and have had well over 150 different students in that time: Kids, retirees, beginner to advanced.

I've always had a passion for education since I was a little girl. Math, in particular, has always come naturally to me. As result, I've always been able to offer a helping hand break down math problems in a way that is simple and easy to understand. I have over 2 years of experience putting my teaching method into practice and I've seen its success. My lessons are customized and catered to the needs of each student. Not only will you be achieving the grades you want in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of numbers and operations, algebra, geometry and measurement, data analysis, statistics, probability and more. Let's get started!

About Larissa
Hi, my name is Larissa Oglesby a junior psychology major at St. John's University. I've always had a passion for education since I was a little girl. Ultimately, because of my love of education and passing on knowledge to others, my life long goal is to become a professor. Throughout my college career so far a lot of my time has been focused on research. However, I would love to devote more time to educating others. My past and present work experiences are centered around small children. I'm always excited to work with this age group and find it makes work fun. I hope I can be a phenomenal tutor to your child and enrich their academic development.

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.

I believe that a love of learning and a love of teaching go hand in hand. Teaching and tutoring allow me to help others develop that same love of learning that drives me in my studies. I find joy in showing students that intelligence is not fixed, helping them prove to themselves that they can improve their performance in any class with hard work.

The best tutors are people who love both the subjects they tutor and the feeling of helping someone succeed. I have always loved math and science, and part of my tutoring process is helping others to appreciate these topics as well. With words of encouragement and a non-judgmental attitude, I guide students toward a deeper understanding and better problem-solving strategies.

I prepare in advance for every lesson, regardless of the topic, to ensure that I am refreshed on the subject and to develop any materials I might use during the session (equation sheets, worksheets, etc.). I develop practice problems during math and science ...
