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.

Lessons with me are highly interactive. Active learning is what I'm striving for; an engaged student can learn. As many a professor of mine has said, math is not a spectator sport. It is learned by actively engaging with the concepts and the mechanics.

I focus on finding out where the student is in terms of understanding, and meeting them intellectually wherever they may be. A lesson with me is truly where there is no such thing as a dumb question. Understanding why things are the way they are is central to my approach. Understanding is a "force multiplier" that takes a student far beyond mere rote memorization of rules that are otherwise quickly forgotten.

Of course, the goal is to be able to demonstrate understanding, which typically requires being able to solve problems. Once understanding of a concept seems to be emerging, I am happy to help guide the student through a variety of exercises to give the student the confidence that they "really get it", and can work ...

About Andrew

I am both experienced and patient as a teacher. I have clear memories of what it was like to learn new things for the first time in math, and so I empathize with the student who may be wrestling with new and different ideas. I began teaching back in college in the early 1980s, when I was a teachi

I love teaching Statistics and tutored undergraduate students when I was in graduate school. I have an MS in statistics and a PhD in a related subject (machine learning, computer vision, image analysis). Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Get in touch to see if we are a good match.

About Meena

I have a long standing interest in applying statistics and probability to everyday problems. I wanted to better understand processes, systems, behavior and so I went back to school in 2002 after a 10 year career in tech to study statistics. I believe it is one of the best degrees to have.

"Aalok Shah's in depth knowledge of admission testing, coupled with his easy demeanor, made all the difference for our son as he prepped for the college process. In addition to advising our son on the proper material to study, Aalok taught him to strategically tackle each section and manage his question answering time accordingly. He set up realistic weekly goals for our son to meet as well as providing many study guides and materials for his reference. We found Aalok’s advice on college planning extremely useful and he was always readily available to answer any questions that we had. Aalok’s calm and encouraging personality eased the stress surrounding standardized testing. This fall, our son will join the Rutgers University inaugural Honors College Class of 2019 with a full tuition, room & board scholarship worth $102,400. We are extremely grateful to Aalok for the integral role he played in making this happen. We cannot recommend Aalok highly enough to any family who is embarking on the college pathway."

"Nick is a wonderful teacher, he is knowledgeable and perceptive. I first came to Nick for help on my essay for my college application. He was able to help me narrow down the options of topics to write about so that I could confidently write about a topic I am passionate about. He continued to help me outline and structure the paper so that it would be organized and academically acceptable, and finally, he helped with editing so that the final copy was ready. A few months later I received my letter of acceptance.
After helping with my college application essay, Nick continued tutoring me through my semester at Community College. he taught me how to do a close reading, to arrange paragraphs, and to better phrase my ideas. He offered new ways to strengthen my writing. Nick is so patient and full of encouragement, I could not have made it through the semester without him."
