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.

Ballroom Dancing

I have trained in Latin dance professionally in New York City and Honolulu for over 6 years. I currently own a dance company and teach, choreograph and perform across the country as well as internationally. I teach private and group lessons on a daily basis.


I have been cooking and experimenting with recipes since I was 10 years old. I have taken cooking courses in New York City and helped a number of people learn how to prepare weekly meals for their family, and dinner parties for their friends. I focus on healthy cooking as well as baking and also teach people the importance of acidity, sweet, and salty balance.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was the head teacher of an after school program for elementary school children ages 5-12 for two consecutive summers. One of my major tasks was tutoring children with their homework. I worked with a variety of different children, and tutored them in subjects such as English, Science, and Math.

My approach is gentle yet firm. Because each child learns differently, I create a curriculum based on the specific needs and the learning style(s) that work best for that child, in the hopes of developing a productive yet fun environment for learning.


I am half Iranian and grew up speaking Farsi to my mother at home. In addition, I have a minor in Middle Eastern studies from New York University, and I spent four years studying reading, writing and pronunciation of the language.


I am currently pursuing a degree in Health and Fitness Science and will complete my NCAA personal trainer's certification in a couple months. I am already certified as a Pilates Instructor for MAT 1 and 2. I do one on one and group lessons for people who want to improve their fitness and health, body image, and confidence. I also teach pilates classes for dancers.


Graduated from NYU with an M.A. in Flute Performance. Former adjunct professor of flute at NYU with years of teaching experience, offering private flute lessons for students of all ages and levels. Throughout your lessons you will learn all the fundamentals that will make you a strong, great musician. These will include a strong understanding of musicianship, tone quality, different techniques, and sight reading.

General Computer

I have experience using and teaching both Macs and PCs. I can teach you how to type efficiently, access your system settings, and use Microsoft Word and Excel, among other skills necessary to use your computer on a day-to-day basis. Once an assessment of your skills has been made, I will create a curriculum specific to you and your needs, to get you up to speed with the latest technology.

Salsa Dancing

I have over 6 years of dance experience and have taught and danced with prestigious dance schools in New York City. My dance partner and I currently own a dance school where we teach classes almost every day of the week. We also train a student team and choreograph/perform our own professional routines as well. We are available for private lessons.


I have been practicing yoga for 12 years. I specialize in Iyengar style and integrate yoga poses and breathing in my personal training and pilates lessons. I have taken a number of courses and workshops in various states across the U.S. and believe utilizing yoga concepts in a workout is beneficial for the body and mind.
