Hi! My name is Istishna! It's a really tough name, so you can call me Izzy.

I worked for AmeriCorp as a Jumpstart Corp Member, teaching children from the ages of 3-4 in low income families to be more prepared for kindergarten by teaching them how to read, write and speak English. This was implemented with 2 hour sessions twice a week. I also privately tutored a middle school girl, which was implemented with practice problems and workbooks that were supplied by her mother. The workbooks aren't necessary. My methods consist of a lot of practice problems and homework. I will assign homework according to the amount of work that was assigned by the student's school. I don't want to harm school work, just supplement them. I have also tutored college students in philosophy, algebra and English. I love learning and helping people understand material. I am patient and will go thoroughly over problems, step by step, as slow or fast as necessary for one to learn the material.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with children in elementary school with reading, writing and math. I also worked with younger children, age 3-4, in low income neighborhoods, to help them be more prepared for school when they enter kindergarten.


I have done philosophy for 4 years and am currently majoring in Philosophy at Pace University. My favorites are the classical Greeks, scientific materialism and logic. I think they are great topics to discuss and have conversations on.
