All of Vicki’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Vicki’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Ballet

I have trained in ballet for 6 years. I have studied at many different dance studios and learned from Byron Suber at Cornell University. This tutoring would be meant to supplement an existing dance course at a studio. I would work on technique that the student struggles with and review proper vocabulary and dance history so that the student can be more well rounded. I was an assistant dance teacher at Arts YOUniversity for 3 years when it was in existence, and have worked with children from age 5-12 in the classes I assisted.

MATLAB

I studied under Daisy Fan at Cornell and can explain all of the major operations of MATLAB and the language. I can provide intuitive help to teach students about problem solving. I know the language, and can teach it well. I have had success helping my peers to understand problems in the past. Problems solving is at the heart of all successful codes. I understand how to help students see the problem and work out a general structure for how they want to solve the problem. Then, with an idea of ways to approach a problem, students will learn how to fill in their solution with the written code. I have MATLAB installed on my laptop and can run simulations with students to show them how the code that they wrote will work. Coding can be tiresome and confusing if you don't know where to start, but I know a great method that I would love to share on how to approach a challenging problem.

SAT Math

On the Math 2 SAT II (Subject Test), I received a score of 800. My best Math Section of the SAT I was a 790. I can help students prepare by helping them know their own strengths and weaknesses. With this knowledge they will score higher by knowing when to not guess. I will also provide practice sections under the time crunch so they can learn time management in a test environment.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
