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.

I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now.

Many have chosen to retain me as their tutor for more than a year.

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.

Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

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.

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.

About Sifat Bin
I have been a Teacher's assistant throughout my high school. For the first two years, I have assisted my math and chemistry teachers to help my fellow class mates understand various problems and concepts. For the last two years, I have been helping my Math, Chemistry and Biology teacher to not only help my classmates understand problems but also to help my juniors understand key concepts. I have also tutored my juniors in Math, Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science. I have always tutored my younger sister who is in class 5. I have also tutored two of my cousins who are in class 7 and 11 respectively.

I came from Bangladesh in April,2016. I was enrolled in a school and about to give my Cambridge International Exams from there but then I had to move to USA for certain family emergencies. Later, I had completed my examinations from Nicevi
lle High school. I love sports. I was the School cricket team captain and led my team to various tournament triumphs. I also used to play soccer. But I had a fracture in my finger while playing a match. I scored 6 goals in that match and later discovered that I had fractured my finger. I have also been in the top ranked table tennis players in my school. The only two matches that the school champion had lost that year were against me. I am very fond of travelling. In a short span of 6 months I have already visited 9 states. I like to make friends and help people whenever I get any opportunity. I am very calm and collective. I always try to help others understand various problems from different perspectives using numerous examples. I believe in having a friendly relationship between teachers and students.

About Nora
Whenever there is a creative moment of writer's block, a college application to be written, a school essay to be edited, I am always the go-to for everyone in my circle.

It's not just because I have years of experience writing and editing-- it's because my friends and colleagues know the genuine pleasure I get from helping others write and edit their words to perfectly capture what they want to express.

Writing should be fun. We speak to express ourselves, for the most part without self-judgement of self-editing. We argue with one another, crack jokes, express emotions, explain. Why should the written word be any less dynamic, any less fun??

I love all writing equally: creative, poetry, scientific articles, applications, school essays, journalism. And I love it at all stages: Ideation, outlining, writing, editing, polishing.

If yo
u want to not only improve the writing on the paper in front of you, but to gain applicable skills that will serve you in school, work, and life for decades to come, connect with me... oh, and we'll have fun working on it too!
