My name is Marie, and I may be the ideal tutor for you!
I am currently a second year social work student at NYU, and I have 3.5 years of tutoring experience, in addition to several years of counseling experience with children. Before enrolling at NYU, I earned a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University (I majored in general psychology as an undergraduate student at Vassar College), and started tutoring shortly after graduation. I worked for a year as a tutor for the Academic Advantage, and have now been working for WyzAnt for two and a half years. As part of my work, I tutor students in Math (pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and general Math), Language Arts (including English, reading, vocabulary and writing). and test prep (GED, GRE, SHSAT, SAT).
Besides tutoring, I also have a lot of work experience as a substitute teacher and teaching assistant in various classrooms. I have experience with students of all ages, including extensive experience with individuals who have special needs.
In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student, and concrete experiences in addition to worksheets. However, my specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student.
I look forward to hearing from you!
