James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

I tutor grade school kids and increase their interest in the subject, be it reading, writing or math. Keeping the child interested in what they are learning and curious to learn more propels them toward higher learning in the future.

About Julia
Would you like a Try-Out lesson before booking a package? I understand the hesitation before making an investment, which is why I offer shorter 20 minute lessons specifically for hw help, test prep or just a compatibility check. Send me a message if you are interested - I will be happy to suggest a time frame best for your individual needs!

Whether you are interested in one lesson or a recurring schedule, student satisfaction is extremely important to me.
From my time tutoring at high school learning centers, college tutoring centers, and childhood elementary academies, I have implemented and developed my own method of teaching for my students, which includes personalized lesson plans, alternative views to math, as well as implementing a visual and contextual approach to unfamiliar subjects with the positive benefit of increasing the
student's self-esteem and confidence, and his/her ability to learn efficiently.
I do not only teach what you need to pass your next exam - I teach thoroughly and patiently with the goal of helping you manifest your unrealized potential!

With a Bachelors Degree in Physics and Minor in Math from Hunter College, Julia has over 9 years of experience tutoring students of all ages in all subjects.
Her clients find her patient, professional, courteous, and reliable.
Julia is located in NYC and teaches lessons online and over Skype or FaceTime.

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.

I did regents prep with Julia for my high school honors physics class back in 2011. I am now back with Julia for my calc-based college physics course! Her teaching style saves the day and I'm already better understanding my course material. She goes over each topic with her own notes and examples. I do what she assigns me first before I move on to my actual hw, and it brings me great results. I feel extremely confident about my upcoming midterms. Thank you!!!

Math is great because there's always one specific answer! My goal with students is to help them understand the path from a problem to its solution. Math is a tool to help develop reasoning and solution seeking skills.

The unique thing that sets me apart as a tutor in any subject is that I first work with the student, and I gently guide them to find the answer on their own.

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree and didn't want to be a school teacher. I worked professional jobs in retail and tech sales and have come back to teaching.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I always make sure to work with the student first. I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons, though I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Kum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band, partially to rehab a brain injury.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

Practice is a must in order to develop the n
ecessary skills that demonstrate learning.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

Joshua Blatman is a fantastic music teacher. He has a great resume, is experienced in a variety of instruments, and a solid background in teaching.
I think any kids lucky enough to learn music from Joshua will have fun and hopefully fall in love with learning it, just like my kids have.

I whole-heartedly recommend Joshua for anyone of any age and any skill level who wants to enrich their life learning guitar. I appreciate the fact that he makes the time and has the patience to adapt to my needs. Joshua is flexible in scheduling - especially for those unforeseen incidents - which is appreciated.

Being an adult beginner with music lessons, Joshua eases my frustration on immediately wanting to play perfect notes and chords. I look forward to continuing lessons.

My years, of learning math in CUNY City College of New York, show my understanding of basic math principles.

I've helped students count numbers, and identify geometric shapes. I have learned simple techniques to teach adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing numbers, decimal division, and fraction subtraction. With an understanding of New York State Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics, I know the areas of math that students should avoid; until they reach the next grade level.

About william
In BTHS, I studied American History, literature, AP Calculus BC, & AP Statistics. After this, I studied English literature & poetry, U.S government, and basic calculus functions of 3-space in CUNY City College of New York. Then, I learned mathematical proof writing, logic, set theory, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, & Numerical Analysis. Afterwards, I studied probability and advanced calculus; involving set theory, axioms, and logic.

Tutoring students is really effective & fun. Throughout my years of tutoring, I've helped college students, and students taking exams for jobs; with flexible hours and direct, timely assistance. I've tutored young students from elementary to high school; using New York State Common Core Learning standards, while providing homework help & test preparation. My tutoring policy is to assistance studen
ts whenever and wherever they feel most comfortable. My economic tutoring service can always be changed to meet your desired requirements & standards.

Prof. Thiru. Helped me to know the concepts much better in precalclus. He would show me step by step how to solve the problems and I got much better at solving them. He was very patent despite the fact that I did not know very much going into his tutoring sessions. When I got out of his tutoring sessions I knew much more and felt more confident in my abilities. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for help in precalclus.

She was dependable and always set high expectations for her. she never let her get off easy. And it truly worked wonders.
