I received my NYS High School Regents Diploma in 2011. I am currently in the process of receiving my B.S. from CUNY City College of New York in Biomedical Engineering. I tailor every session to the needs of my student. I guide my students in prioritizing by asking what they need to get done before our next session and then we work from there.
A native French speaker, I hold a PhD in French and Romance Languages and Literatures. Whether you want to (re)learn French grammar, improve your communication skills, or know more about French literature, I am here to help you! I will provide you with working material, depending on your own needs. All levels and ages are welcome, from beginner to advanced.
My teaching method is to ensure all students feel confident that the level they are at is where we will begin and build off of. I seek to empower all students to reach their full potential in all that they do.
When working with students, my greatest joy is fostering confidence in not just their skills, but who they are as people. Seeing students become passionate about their work and building possibilities for their future is a true reward. When I was in high school, it was my teachers that set me on a positive and fulfilling path, and I have dedicated myself to paying that forward.
My teaching methodology, when assisting in essay writing, is collaborative. I help students mine for ideas and personal details about their lives, and then help them structure these into a formal yet creative essay. When teaching the mechanics of grammar, I take a more didactic approach, explaining concepts using examples and modeling.
My degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics gives me the unique ability to help my students approach every aspect of the humanities as part of a whole, enabling them to both retain networks of information more easily and grow as critical thinkers. I love the diversity in how my students think, and finding the best way to make learning rewarding for each one.
I am a speech-language pathologist who has been practicing for a year. I have extensive practicum experiences with students with language-based learning disabilities, as well as other diagnoses that impede their learning such as ADHD, anxiety, dyslexia and pragmatic challenges. I can provide lessons to students of all ages with any sort of learning or language difficulties.
Hello there! My name is Lana Leonard, a student, a teacher, a tutor, an artist, but more specifically a journalism and music major at The New School in downtown New York with various teaching experiences. My lessons to students open up how connected the world is rather than how divided it is. My style is quite simple.
I am a professional saxophonist and jazz musician in the NYC area. I graduated from the City College of New York with a BFA in Jazz Performance. My professional life involves performing my own original music, performing the music of my peers, performing for events such as weddings and corporate gatherings, arranging music for others and teaching private lessons.
My teaching method is tailored to my students, and I am patient and gentle when giving critiques and suggestions. Because of my experience in Psychology, I have learned how to best promote students' academic development through allowing them to approach material in their own personal way.
I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in English Language Arts from The New School University this past summer and have done some freelance tutoring and essay editing for fellow students throughout my college career. I am a thoroughly detail-oriented editor who strives to help my students express their ideas with precision and style.
I teach students of different levels and ages, in a one-on-one and a classroom setting reading, writing, listening and speaking. I use different interactive methods to make sure all students are engaged and excited about the language and the culture.
It depends on the student! I am willing to give hands on instruction to beginners, or for more experienced skiers just ride and give some advice/tips when possible. However you want your day(s) to be spent, I will happily abide.

My background is in ESL and technical writing. I teach undergraduate and graduate students using a variety if methods and procedures, depending on the student's needs and abilities by scaffolding the necessary skills. I create many of the materials myself.
Hi, Richard here. I am an internationally published photographer studied at NYU / NYC, SVA / NYC, Art Institute / Pittsburgh, PA. In my lessons you will develop an eye of the photographer using composition and design using studio and natural lighting.
I've always tried to create learning communities where my students make sense of the math themselves. I believe less in modeling skills and more in letting students explore their own strategies. I've developed curriculum for an entire school that uses visual models like number lines and ratio tables to make strategies easier to discover.
I will adapt to a given curriculum or I can propose a selection of language-learning methods based on objectives - exams, travel, school, university - from the more intuitive, discussion-based methods to more formal grammar-based methods. The focus is on the student and helping him or her overcome the individual obstacles to learning.
I teach students Spanish so they can relate and understand the language instead of just memorizing which is so complicated and the opposite to learn any language naturally. Toddlers can speak their parent's language because they use simply use what they hear is important to communicate, adults learning second languages should be the same.
Conversational English taught in a fun, stress-free environment. Stress is placed on the correct pronunciation of English vowel sounds, which is key to correct pronunciation. Concepts are repeated until student has a solid base to begin building on.
Many people just need a kind ear - sometimes I think it's what makes us most happy in life. So I try to provide that. My brilliant students do it all themselves, in actuality. As Socrates said, the most important knowledge is in us.
I've worked with everyone from college students who have never read a book to the developmentally disabled to felons to Ivy League professors. My methodology is to be quiet and listen - you never know who will teach you what today.
I enjoy teaching because learning is fun! I like to make lessons fun and engaging! I like to use interactive methods, such as memorization games and songs, to engage with students. I usually start a class or session with a short lecture, followed by questions and answers, then an activity, followed by more questions and answers, and a review.
Tons of experience as both performer, conductor, and teacher. Speciality teaching adults who are either beginners are preparing for concerts. I work with and tailor make instruction which deal with solving problems , both technical and musical which allow your talent to come our. You will have something to say in your performances.
I can explain you anything you don’t understand, explain to your the basic formulas, but also show you the attitude you should adopt toward the basic problems so you know how to solve anything on the exam.
The success that I have had with my students can be attributed to fostering a mentoring relationship with them. Being a successful tutor and imparting the necessary academic skills is easy, but the most effective part comes from instilling a sense of trust from my mentees/students: someone who looks up to be like a big brother, asking me for advice outside of academics.
My teaching style: I firmly believe that anyone can succeed if they: 1) set realistic goals, 2) put in the effort, and 3) ask for help and resources. My pledge to you is that I will always be patient, clear, and honest. I expect you to always try your best and open up to let me help you.
I learn best by understanding the mechanism that underlies whatever concept I am trying to master. When I tutor others, I try to focus on getting them to understand WHY things are happening rather than rote memorization because that triggers more long term memories. I also learn a lot from helpful mnemonics and wordplay and share these secrets whenever applicable.
I have developed teaching strategies (constructivist practice) and ethical positions (fairness for all) that motivate students and stir them to reach their individual potential. I am experienced and qualified to teach a variety of students, from the very earliest pre- kindergartners to advanced learners.
