"Good Grades Guaranteed!"
Hi, this is Mahvish, a junior at college of Staten Island, majoring in Biochemistry and Chemistry, and minoring in Math. I've been tutoring Math and Science for the past three years, for which I get a lot of appreciation. My tutees love my teaching style as I make it very simple for my students. I tutor not only for money, but also because I like to share my knowledge with others. Teaching is my passion, as I want to be a teacher. If you want a good grade, do try me out. I promise I won't let... ... More

I hired Jeffrey to tutor my daughter in Physics and I feel fortunate to have found him. I find Jeffrey to be personable, patient, softspoken (in a good way) and really wants my daughter to "get it." Though we have only had 3 sessions so far, my daughter tells me that she likes him (and I think it is very important that the tutee likes the tutor!), that she feels very comfortable saying she still wasn't understanding the problem and more than once, and that he is very patient. Jeffrey goes over the physics problem(s) several times showing my daughter how to do it and then making sure she can illustrate the same work/process in a similar problem. My daughter tells me that the repetition of her doing the problem with him has helped her to be more confident in the subject because she is understanding it better by doing it. Sometimes I wish we had an hour and a half with him, which can likely be scheduled, because that little bit of extra time would perhaps make for an even more thorough lesson. After every lesson, Jeffrey emails me a paragraph summary of what they went though with some helpful reminders for my daughter from the lesson. I forward them all to her so she can keep them and refer back to them. After our last session, Jeffrey also emailed us an additional physics problem for her to work on, with explanations and rationale and his openness for her tom call him to discuss the problem on the phone or to save the discussion for the next session. I would highly recommend Jeffrey if your child needs a tutor in physics or another area he specializes in; I think you will find that he truly is all that I describe above. As a side note, he is ontime and responds to emails quickly.

"Effective Ph.D. Tutor of Mathematics and Physics"
Elementary math is a fabulous opportunity to lay down a firm foundation for more advanced mathematics. Indeed, much of my time teaching advanced math is remedial work concerning concepts that students should have gotten in elementary math, such as how to do arithmetic with fractions, which operations permit the distributive property (and which don't!), etc. ...

"Math (to Calculus II), Physics (Mechanics), SAT Math tutor"
As a math major preparing to be a teacher, I am an experienced and effective tutor. I enjoy tutoring in all math subjects to calculus II (including statistics).

I just need to say that we have the best tutor!!! My husband desperately needed tutoring for his Algebra college course. Janet has come through for him (for us) with flying colors. She is flexible with her schedule, she has made my husband feel very comfortable, and best of all, she is teaching him exactly what he needs to know to pass his tests. According to my husband, Janet has the ability to take very difficult things and make them understandable. Yeah, we are very happy.
PS. And even though I'm not in the session, she must be VERY patient!!

"Mathematics English and Science Tutor"
Because I have owned and operated college preparatory schools for several years, I have been able to accept and help students with ADD and ADHD. I have found that, with oneonone instruction and clear explanations, students with ADD and ADHD are able to achieve in line with their innate intelligent and talents. The extra attention assures that these students are able to remain in the main stream, rather than be shunted off to special classes.

Carole has been working with my son for few months now. She has helped him not only with his AP Spanish but also with his writing in English. She is very organized in her work and follows through with the work she gives him on a weekly basis. We are very happy with the result we got so far. Thank you.

Hi  Rebecca helped our daughter Kate with PreCal. Kate's teacher didn't really teach the subject so she needed someone to help fill in the many gaps. Rebecca was always prepared in advance for the lessons, patient, and very good at explaining the various concepts and formulas. Kate has had several other tutors in PreCal, I would say if you need a PreCal tutor, contact Rebecca!
