Hi! I'm Maria! I've been General Chemistry TA and I'm also a student at Columbia University! I know chemistry might seem hard, but I'm of the opinion that it can be super easy and fun if it's taught in the right way. When you work with me, I make sure to break down complicated topics to their simple forms, and explain complex principles in ways that anyone can understand! I also have experience writing chemistry exams with college professors, so I can help you understand what professors and teachers most frequently test on! Need help writing lab reports, pre labs, or post labs?? Not a problem! As a chem lab TA, I've reviewed countless lab reports and know exactly what graders are looking for! At the end of the day, I make sure that each of my students leave a lesson with a clear understanding of difficult topics they came to me with!

Nikole, is very warm and professional. I have never continued with voice lessons, I enjoyed the experience so much that I'm going to kick the bad habit of smoking and sit down and seriously figure my finances out to continue being taught by her.

I learned a great deal from working with Julie in a very short amount of time. She's extremely knowledgable and very patient. I look forward to continuing sessions with her in pursuit of achieving my goals.

I was a little sceptical at first how this classroom session was going to go. Julie is exactly what I have hoped for in an instructor, very thorough in teaching in a manner that helps me understand not only about my camera, but, what is expected. I believe that Julie is a good fit for me.

I very much enjoy my lessons with Julie. She listens to what i'm interested in pursuing and guides me accordingly. She shares ideas and advice and most of all is supportive and encouraging.

If you are like me and want to improve your cooking skills, have Gali help you and you’ll be so happy you did. I love cooking and there is nothing at all like learning how to cook Italian food from a true Italian! Super fun and nice guy too.

All I can say is - thank goodness for Gali! He’s an awesome swimmer and really helped me improve.

Gali is an incredible tutor! He is the most patient tutor I have had. He explains things thoroughly and has a serious knack for being able to make things easily understandable! I always struggled learning Italian in class, but he found a way to make it all make sense for me and now I am so much better at it than I ever could have been without his help!

"Alexandra is professional, responsible, reliable and friendly. She is very patient with students and their parents. Only a few months with her helping, my child's writing skills went from a 3- to a 4+, which increased his self-confidence a lot! She usually supplies a variety of teaching materials which attract kids very well. She uses her expert skills to help students express their feelings in thinking and writing. Trust me, Alexa is the best tutor you can have,not only for foreigners, beginners but also for native speakers."

"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."

What Great Writers Can Learn From Children's Books

Most experts agree: when you're learning how to write, reading as much as possible should be part of your daily life. And that means reading everything! Here, New Milford, NJ teacher Matthew H. explains what you can even learn from your favorite childhood books...   Children’s books are normally our first introduction to reading and writing. As kids, we listen to our parents, teachers, and other caregivers read aloud to us. Eventually, we read basic sentences on our own until we …
