Excellent coach. Trained well. My son learn a lot from class and has been using his new moves at home. He loved the chess.

My son is learning piano and chess with josh. We live in Brooklyn and he’s coming from nj. He’s always on time (even in a thunderstorm)!!! He’s patient but firm with my 5 year old son who’s extremely fidgety and at times absent minded! He’s a very by the book kind of guy and ensures that my son understands the foundation before moving ahead!

Joshua is great my 6 years old seems very interested to continue learning

I love analyzing events in history and seeing connections/causes/effects between seemingly unrelated events. I stress long-term understanding instead of short-term memorizing of events/dates.

I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My long-term pricing is negotiable if we work together for an extended time.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I want to share my love of American History with my students. Most students think of history as a list of memorized dates, and there is that component, but there also are living, breathing individuals who created that history. I hope my students take away at least a respect of history that they didn't have before and of course a more knowledgeable view.

My love of history started early in high school and puts me on track to major in history now at Harvard. My research has taken me from the Gilded Age farmers of the United States to the Qing-Dynasty emperors of China, to the sixth-centuries ascetics of Gaza, to the peasants imperial Russia, the musicians of the Soviet Union, the writers of Romantic-Era France, and beyond. I am experienced in U.S., world, and European history, and it would truly be my pleasure to share those subjects with a student aiming to understand them better at the elementary, middle, or high school levels.

Currently an undergraduate at Harvard, I have long enjoyed sharing both my love of learning and the reserve of strategies that I've build up for overcoming academic challenges. In my experience, successful tutoring hinges on a flexible and dynamic teaching style, honed to each student's unique combination of strengths and struggles. There are many different ways to understand any concept or learn any skill. ...

Sophia has been my tutor for all essay writing assignments and tasks for the past several years (at least 5 years), which includes coursework and application essays. She is extremely professional, kind, gentle, knowledgeable, and adapts her teaching style in a very tailored way to the student she is working with. In my experience, she is absolutely unique in the way in which she can take the essay content or structure that a student has in mind and, without throwing it out, put herself into the student's reference frame, and guide the student to rework or reframe it into a polished essay; moreover, even when this process requires significant changes, she manages to be empowering of the student the entire time, actually building their confidence while guiding them to improve their work. I say this from significant personal experience receiving exactly this kind of guidance from Sophia. I think part of what allows her to do this is she genuinely remains kind and humble the entire time, so her critiques and guidance are easy to accept and do not come across as harsh or in any way demeaning of the work I had done before meeting with her.

I should also mention that, having read some of her own writing, she is an exceptional writer herself and has significant experience in writing and tutoring analytical, creative, and scientific writing (I have come to her for help with all three types!). She also has a terrific intuition for how to structure an essay in a given context and purpose, which is something I particularly struggle with. As a final note, I would add that Sophia naturally teaches one how to write while guiding you to improve a particular essay, so you end up picking up her skill and experience as you work with her.

Having tried other tutors and attended writing workshops, etc., I can say with confidence that I have never found another writing tutor who comes close to Sophia--including in the quality of the finished products she helps create, degree to which she improves a student's own overall writing and organizational ability, and the way in which she tailors her approach to fit what is needed for a particular student, assignment, and even particular essay draft.
