ExperienceI love tutoring in math and science, and have been helping students make huge gains in difficult subject areas for four years.
What I Bring to the Table:
* Formal teacher education from Teachers College, Columbia University
* Years of practical experience with students
* Deep fundamental understanding of all the concepts involved
What You or Your Child Brings to the Table:
* The potential to understand all challenging math and science concepts
* The desire to enjoy challenging subjects, rather than feel intimidated
I enjoy math and science so much that I do them in my free time, and I love passing that passion on to my students. The most successful way to get students truly excited about math and science is to give them a deep and intuitive understanding of the concepts, so that they can start to make all the interesting connections themselves. Not surprisingly, this approach is also the most effective at promoting objective measures of success, such as high grades and test scores.
