Qualifications: I am an NYU Honors graduate with a double major in Chemistry and Psychology. I was also a Valedictorian of my high school and hold numerous academic awards.

Experience: I have been working as a full time tutor for over 3 years now with amazing results. I have worked with students from such high schools as Horace Mann, Stuyvesant, Brooklyn Tech, La Guardia, Ramaz and others.
I have also tutored college students from NYU, LIU, Columbia, Hunter, St. Johns, St Josephs, BMCC, Brooklyn, Fordham and others.

Most of my students see improvement after only a couple of sessions, and many went from failing to A's and B's.

Teaching Approach:
I tailor my lessons uniquely to each student depending on his/her strengths and weaknesses. My approach is that of a dialogue rather then a lecture. As I explain the topic I make sure to ask plenty of questions and do practice problems to know that my students has a firm understanding of the chapter.
I believe in encouragement and motivation, and I know that mistakes are an essential part of learning.

I feel truly blessed to discover what I really love to do. There is no better feeling then that of helping another person learn and seeing him succeed!

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Organic Chemistry

I got As in both organic chemistry 1 and 2 at NYU. I have also tutored over 30 students specifically in organic chemistry with great results. It was my favorite subject in college.

Regents

While in high school, I graduated with a Regents diploma and had A's on all of my Regents.

Every year I prepare my students for Regents exams in Chemistry, Geometry, and Trigonometry.

I like preparing for standardized exams because a student knows what to expect and has plenty of practice with the actual past exams.
