City College of NY
I was born and raised in NYC. I graduated from Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics. I am an incoming freshman to City College of NY. I am going in as a pre-med student and hope to graduate in four years and then go to medical school. I am an outgoing person and love to lead. Teaching gives me the chance to interact with children and learn how they work. It also gives me the chance to motivate and inspire young children who lose the motive to continue to put in hard work when they face obstacles and stress.
I love working with children, I aspire to be a pediatrician or teacher when I grow up. I have experience with teaching because I have taught students in a tutorial center as well as volunteered to teach students in my school. I make every effort to find different strategies to help students succeed because everyone learns differently. Students who I have taught have succeeded in increasing their test scores and grades in school. There are moments when students give up and don't want to continue to do their work, so the tutor needs to find a way to keep them going or give them a break when they need it and I am up for the challenge. Students love being taught by me because not only do I challenge their thinking but I let them have fun through the hands on learning if necessary.
I was a tutor for three years with the first year of teaching my relatives' children and the next two years at a tutorial center where I taught grades K-6. I have great experience with teaching students. I am easily able to identify their strengths and weaknesses and decipher their learning methods. I first start the session with a mini-lesson and make sure they understand the practice classwork that is given followed by the mini lesson. I also assign homework based off on what we discussed during our class session. I will then grade the classwork on my own time and decipher what needs improvement and how I can help the student improve on that topic and what the student can do at home as well, to increase improvement. Next session, I will start out by going over the homework and have the student try for a second time for the correct answer now that we went over what was wrong and how to find it the correct way.
I have taken all of these math courses in high school and received 90 and above in all my exams and the grades for each class.
Feel free to ask me questions or for any advice for your children. I will be happy to help. I was born and raised in NYC. I graduated from Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics.

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.
