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
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!

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 have always loved teaching people things that I enjoy, sharing my experience with others, and helping people realize their own potential.
I am a musician, a martial artist, and a general IT guru.
Music and martial arts runs in my family, and I was raised around them from a very young age.
As a child, I was always fascinated with computers, and had to know everything I could about them.
My teaching style is a bit unorthodox, focusing more on philosophy and personal introspection than traditional "memorize and practice" methods, and is very mind, body, and spirit oriented.
Feel free to ask me questions for more information.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I loved teaching my mom knitting because she taught me so many different skills and I enjoyed spending time with her and teaching her something new. In college, I started a knitting club with my roommate and we knit in the library on the weekends. I taught my friends how to knit their first hats, scarves, and pot holders.
I love to knit, crochet, run, make jokes, and get to know people. I can't wait to meet you! I'm easy going but I will also challenge you to knit and crochet well. I look forward to checking out what projects you'd like to create!

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!
I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.
I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.
Classes I teach are:
• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation
Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!

Hand sewing a costume for an actress playing Queen Elizabeth the first. Everything had to be hand-sewn from the undergarments to the seven layers that consists of a historically correct tutor costume. I have some pieces for reenactors.
