About Angela
I am a freelance classical singer in the NYC area. I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in Vocal Performance and a minor in English Literature. I've been teaching off and on for the past few years and have enjoyed helping students better understand classical music and improve their vocal technique. I am also happy to teach musical theater pieces, though it would be through a classical background as I believe the technique it calls for sets a great foundation for performance in any other genre. I work to help students find a freedom and ease in their vocal function that allows the voice to work to its full potential.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide music, unless students have pieces of their own they'd like to work on. Students must provide piano.

*** Specialties ***
I feel am best suited to teach female singers, as I
am one and have a better understanding of the instrument. I am qualified to teach music in English, French, Italian and German.

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.

About Dr. Arnold
Hello,

I have a Ph.D. in Math and have been teaching college math courses and tutoring HS math courses for over 40 years. My top subjects are Statistics, Probability, Calculus, Discrete Math, Finite Math as well as HS AP and pre-calculus classes.

I tutor in-person as well as online. With online tutoring I can be contacted on short notice and if I am free we can connect immediately so I can give homework assistance or help prep for an exam.

For In-Person tutoring I tutor in my home office, in your home or at a mutually agreeable location. I am near Queens College and St. John's University if meeting on campus is convenient. (Travel charge might increase for a longer travel distance or time. Upper level or graduate courses might be at a higher hourly rate.)

I have been successfully tutoring students for as long as I have been
teaching. My goal is to give my students the ability to understand the mathematical concepts that will enable him or her to do well in their particular course.

I know that math does not come easily to everyone and I tailor my tutoring to go at a pace that is appropriate for each individual.

It is just as important for a tutor to listen to the student as it is for the student to pay attention to the tutor.

I look forward to putting my tutoring to work to help you meet and exceed your expectations.

Dr. F. was extremely patient with my son. He always made sure to go over the questions until my son was able to do them on his own. We were able to contact him and get online help right away which was great when my son was stuck on a homework assignment.If anyone asks if I would recommend him I would give an emphatic yes!

I am a doctoral-level student and haven't taken a statistics course since being an undergraduate over 15 years ago. As such, Arnold has been tremendous in helping me revisit this topic, and I firmly believe he has the skillset to do this no matter what the student's level educational level is. He is extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. I highly recommend him as a tutor. You will not be disappointed!

About Nick
My name is Nick and I have been tutoring in writing since I was in high school. I love to work with students from grade school to grad school and help to make lasting adjustments that improve writing over the long term.

I became a Writing Consultant at St. John's University when in college where I worked with hundreds of students at every stage in the writing process. From brainstorming topics to write about, all the way down to making sure references have been correctly annotated, I covered it all. I can help you with any and every stage of the writing process that is giving you trouble and ensure that you are more equipped with strategies to help avoid any familiar difficulties going forward.

The experience I have in teaching writing coupled with a positive attitude and personality make for a pleasant and productive tutoring sessi
on that will alleviate the stress of your assignment, course, or subject matter and leave you feeling more confident in yourself and your ability to complete similar work in the future.

I genuinely want to and enjoy helping you become better and accomplish what you need to. I am excited to help out and hope to hear from you soon!

Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !

About kahtan
As a high school student and later on as an undergraduate student, I faced difficulties with some of my math courses and higher level chemistry courses. The main obstacle to my success in these courses was having teachers who did a poor job of explaining challenging topics. Frustrated and disappointed in my shortcomings, I retook Algebra I in high school and Organic Chemistry I, in college. Repeating these courses with new instructors allowed me a fresh opportunity to learn and master many of the challenging topics I had faced. Due to my hard work and commitment to excellence, I earned 100 in Algebra I, and A+ in Organic Chemistry I.

Among other life lessons, facing these two challenges showed me the power of good instructors, and more importantly, how to approach difficult topics. The best technique to understanding new concept
s is to start with an easy related topic. For example if I ask you what is the atomic radius of periods in the periodic table? To understand the answer, you would need to know the electron affinities of metals and nonmetals. Knowing how metals and nonmetals behave, will allow you to understand electron affinities. In addition, understanding the octet rule and the desired electron state of each atom is essential to answering the question. Lastly, answering the question without understanding why nonmetals radius is smaller than metals is meaningless.

My goal for each tutoring session is to get my student to change the way they approach answering science based questions. While the alternative approach of memorization might be helpful in humanities, it would be fruitless in science or math courses. Once you understand the “why” behind the answer, the next task is to practice working on a variety of questions. To efficiently maximize our time together, I come prepared with worksheets on any challenging topic. At the end of each session, I ask my students what topics they would like me to cover the next session. If applicable, I incorporate relevant regent’s questions.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Thank you.

Kahtan helped my son earn 94 on NYS chemistry regents exam. Prior to working with kahtan, my son was getting 80s on his class exams. Kahtan was always on time and never missed an appointment. I was so pleased with kahtan that I recently reached out to kahtan to inquire about SAT tutoring for my son. Unfortunately, kahtan wanted to focus on tutoring chemistry and did not think he was the right candidate for the job.

About Keenan
I am a 2016 graduate of Denison University in Granville, OH. I spent much of high school and all of college tutoring others in Mathematics. I love working with students in a one-on-one setting in order to give my full attention to their success. I aim work with my tutees in a way that I can best discover how they learn, their strengths, and their weaknesses.

The day before a lesson, I like to be sent whatever material or problems that a student is working on so that I may go over it myself in order to make the most of the time in a session. I believe in learning by doing, but in that regard, I also aim to make sure students know not just HOW to solve a problem but WHY that solution works. My hope is to build up students’ mathematical knowledge while also teaching them the most effective ways to study and learn, making them more effec
tive students even outside of our lessons.

I have had a lot of tutors for mathematics (it just never clicks for me the way other subjects do!) over the years and Keenan was by far the best one. He managed to immediately figure out where I was intellectually and meet me there without making me feel like I was stupid at all. He was consistently kind, and came up with multiple ways to explain concepts I was having trouble with, and made sure that the answers he gave to my questions made complete sense to me before moving on. Keenan was even able to tame my anxiety the first time we met, and because of him I was able to pass calculus and get into graduate school! He even helped me come up with ways to ask my professor questions during class so that I didn't get left behind in lecture. I used to have a lot of trouble with this, since I was embarrassed and not sure that I would ask a question that made sense. Overall, Keenan was the best tutor I have ever had, and I am so grateful to him for helping me not only understand calculus, but start to enjoy it as well!
