About Katie
Hi, there! My name is Katie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since September 2010 and have loved helping my students with test preparation, daily assignments, and projects. I generate exercises to enhance the understanding of the curriculum and work with students to overcome various learning disabilities. I went to Curtis High School and earned an Advanced Regents High School Diploma in 2010. In 2015, I earned my union status in SAG-AFTRA. I'm an outgoing and friendly person and my teaching style is easygoing, understandable, and successful. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

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.

About Tamar
Hi families!

A bit of information about myself: I have been tutoring for over seven years and am very familiar with the public and private school systems in Manhattan. I teach everything from Algebra II to American History, specializing in organizational and study skills.

I am a Columbia University graduate. Graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a 3.97 GPA. I currently tutor full-time and also run a music education non-profit, Nvak.

I am meticulous, patient and loving. I invest 100% of my energy in making sure that the kids that I take on are getting the individualized attention they need and that they are becoming more independent and more confident each session.

Please feel free to contact me via the site to let me know, specifically, what the needs of your child are.

Warmly,
Tamar

Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her student is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)

TAMAR IS A GEM

Tamar is a gem!

I have been working with her for the past year and she has helped me completely transform my academic situation.

I am a freshman in high school who struggles with ADHD. Tamar's patience and diligence is completely unsurpassed. She goes above and beyond to ensure that I am not only doing my work, but she breaks down the material for me in such a way that it is easy to understand. Tamar puts in hours of her own time to create tests and study guides which has helped give me the extra advantage i need. I recommend her to anyone. She is by far one of the best tutors and individuals ever.

About Deirdre
Languages have always fascinated me. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and then Twi when I had a semester studying dance & music in Ghana. The other two constants have been piano and dance. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of flamenco ensnared me. For 18 years, I produced the internationally touring Dance on Camera Festival, the oldest dance film festival in the world produced by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. As a writer, I have been published in over 15 publications, now writing for two on-line magazines. As a dancer/choreographer, I just participated in Soaking WET 2017 and my installation BELL 8 was just at Waterfront Museum in Red Hook, Brooklyn and is now at the Lilac on Pier 25 July-Sept 3, 2017.

About Kerstin
I graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in June 2007 with a Master in Education (Arts in Education) degree. During my studies I worked in the framework of the Artful Adventures Program (Museum of Fine Arts in Boston), which provides object - based learning and hands on artistic experiences for elementary and middle school kids. My own research was about “Creative Insight in Practice" and "Acquiring English as a Second Language and Developing Self-Esteem through the Idiom of Art". I have more than a two decades-long experience in painting, drawing, printmaking and installation work.The images I use in my work are mostly based on self-made or collected photos or drawings from nature combined with literature or self-made phrases. I use digital tools in order to layer text, photos and drawings and combine them to a new work.
Photo and text based collages will often merge into drawings or watercolors and these are the starting point for my large scale oil paintings.

Kerstin has been teaching German to both my kids for the past several years. Their grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation has improved dramatically. Kerstin has done a tremendous job tailoring her lessons to the different needs and learning preferences my children who very much appreciated this tailored approach. Most recently, Kerstin helped to prepare my oldest daughter for her German SAT subject test with outstanding results. I can highly recommend her.

Kerstin has been a great teacher for my two sons. Kerstin always made an special effort to provide teaching material that was not only age appropriate and appropriate for their level of proficiency, but was also tailored to their particular interests. Her teaching style is methodical, while also casual and interactive, and thus well suited to provide a positive learning experience, particularly for children and adolescents. Both my children have benefited greatly from her teaching and I would recommend her highly.

About Kat
I am a professional singer, songwriter, actor, and teacher. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre (with a minor in Spanish)! Originally from North Carolina, I moved to New York City in order to pursue my dream of being an actress! Upon my arrival in New York, I quickly found that I also have an incredible passion for songwriting and teaching. Currently, I am pursuing a career in music and working as a teacher.

If you choose to study voice with me, you can expect to improve your technique weekly using a variety of vocal warm ups and songs. Because every person's voice is just as unique as they are, we will work through your individual strengths and opportunities for growth as well as work towards building up your repertoire - all while helping you gain more and more confidence in you
r vocal abilities!

If you are interested in studying acting with me, you can expect to read lots of plays/musicals, as well as work through a slew of monologues! We can work on material that I find for you or we can work through whatever you need to prepare for your next audition! I can help you find compelling objectives and beats and help bring your character to life!

In my Spanish lessons, you can expect to work through grammar, speaking, reading, and writing. I learned Spanish through an immersive academic program (K-12) and then I minored in Spanish in college so I not only have an understanding of the language from an academic standpoint but I also have been speaking Spanish for nearly the entirety of my life! I have worked with beginner Spanish speakers to native Spanish speakers helping with grammar and writing skills. We will work together to build up your confidence in speaking and understanding Spanish and before you know it, we'll be able to have our lessons fully in Spanish!

I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you soon!!
