Bio

I'm a graduate of Princeton University with a passion for teaching. I quite simply enjoy leading students through difficult course material and preparing them for standardized exams. I believe that learning is a ongoing process and that tutoring should make that process more manageable.

I'm a graduate of Princeton University with a passion for teaching. I quite simply enjoy leading students through difficult course material and preparing them for standardized exams. I believe that learning is a ongoing process and that tutoring should make that process more manageable.

My tutoring services mainly focus on test preparation. Scoring in the 99th percentile on the math and chemistry sections of the GRE, GMAT, MCAT, SAT, SAT Subject and AP exams, I have also obtained high combined scores in the math and verbal sections of the SAT (99th percentile) and GRE (98th percentile) exams.

Tutoring for over 6 years, I credit my success to a single philosophy: above all, I try to instill confidence in my clients by helping them manage their academic workload. In every lesson, I negotiate their expectations while also putting them in the best possible position to succeed. Beyond providing customized worksheets and study guides, my services reduce stress levels and increase sustained focus. Consequently, my sessions are known to be very productive.

My services also cover college/high school math and science courses. Since I have extensive experience working with local students attending Columbia, NYU, Hunter, and other CUNY schools, I am quite familiar with the testing style of specific professors.

Lastly, I am flexible with times and meeting locations. I work as a full-time tutor, so scheduling is rarely an issue. I mainly tutor within Manhattan, but also conduct lessons in Queens or Brooklyn, if my workload allows it. I also enjoy working online whenever students are unable to meet in person.

Best Regards,
Charles

GMAT,

GMAT

I'm an expert in standardized math test preparation, having recently scored a 50 on the GMAT's quantitative section. Being quite confident in my approach to the exam format (e.g. data sufficiency), I routinely employ methods that maximize time and content knowledge to achieve the highest score possible. Beyond that, I have access to a number of GMAT question banks, which have been helpful to dozens of clients over the years.
GRE

GRE

Though I scored in the 98th percentile (Q:163 V:163) of the GRE, I mainly focus on the quantitative portion while also discussing strategies and techniques used for all sections. Below you'll find answers to frequently asked questions, but feel free to contact me to discuss the benefits of tutoring. 1) How much can I expect my score to increase? Students who start tutoring with me at least one month prior to their exam date tend to improve their quantitative score by more than 8 points. 2) What resources do you provide? I provide standardized material from a range of test prep companies, including the official ETS material. I also hand out practice worksheets and study guides for review after each session. 3) How do you plan out sessions? During the first few sessions, I try to assess a client's comfort level with the material, reviewing past exam results and asking diagnostic questions. I then create a study plan, picking the topics and strategies I feel will most likely boost test scores in the shortest period of time. 4) How do you conduct each session? I spend the first part of each session answering questions about practice problems. I then try to drill though specific math topics as we work through setting up increasingly complicated exam questions.

Chemistry

Chemistry is one of my favorite subjects to tutor. Ever since taking AP Chemistry in high school and Advanced Chemistry in college, I have gained an appreciation of the work required to master the course. Whether teaching stoichiometry, periodic trends, or kinetic molecular theory, I help students effectively learn complex concepts in a short period of time.

Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is a tricky course. It starts off simple enough, reviewing topics like orbital hybridization, line angle structures, and IUPAC nomenclature. However, when the class starts integrating reactions into the discussion, students are usually overwhelmed by the amount of memorization required. At this point, the difficulty level in Organic Chemistry I increases exponentially and it keeps rising through Organic Chemistry II. Once students fall behind, it's quite challenging for them to solve multi-step synthesis problems, to draw out mechanisms, and/or to memorize reagents confidently. I have 3 years of experience tutoring organic chemistry students at Hunter, Columbia, and Stonybrook. I've developed methods of organizing reagents and mechanisms by using study guides and worksheets customized to suit college curricula. I've also devised study strategies to maximize study time and to reduce frustrations. A number of students have reached their academic goals using these study techniques.

With years of experience working with college chemistry and physics students, I specialize in tutoring the Physical Science section of the MCAT. Many of my clients have seen a significant improvement in their scores. My approach starts with a general review of high yield concepts and then progresses to a more focused discussion of test-taking strategies, including ways of reading through passages efficiently, performing mental math tasks, and selecting the most appropriate formula for any given question.

Charles knows is committed to the success of his students

He probes gently to identify knowledge gaps, then closes them. Patient, thoughtful demeanor. Can make complex issues understandable. Great job with advanced chemistry. Highly recommend

Sheila, 13 lessons with Charles

Amazing tutor, you cant go wrong working with him

Charles have been tutoring my son Chemistry. He is dedicated, patient and knowledgeable. He has been very helpful to my son in effort to improve in Chemistry and Math. My son's Chemistry grades have gone from C to A. I highly recommend him.

Sameer, 9 lessons with Charles

Organized, efficient tutor

He helped me organize my calculus lessons and study for two tests. I would recommend him for calculus. I did better on my tests than I would have had I not tutored with Charles.

Sally, 5 lessons with Charles

Explains everything clearly and is extremely helpful

I would greatly recommend Charles as a tutor. He is extremely thorough in his explanations and knowledgeable in mathematics. He has helped me a lot in calculus thus far.

Michelle, 18 lessons with Charles

Excellent GRE tutor

Charles is very knowledgeable, flexible and patient! Definitely seeing improvements. He has planned lessons but also goes over what I have specific questions about.

Jessica, 7 lessons with Charles

Friendly and extremely helpful tutor!

Charles is a dedicated tutor. He is responsible and takes his job very seriously. Charles has been working with my 9th grader on Geometry and has offered new and innovative ways of solving complex problems that are accessible. He has a quiet, gentle approach and is very good for students needing some confidence building when the subject doesn't seem to come naturally. He's a pleasure to work with.

Knowledgable and teaches to understand, not to plug and chug

Charles really knows his stuff, and imparts it well. I've used him for two subjects: Calculus III and Statics. For Calculus, he made Series/Sequences, a topic typically dreaded by students, less stressful by explaining when to use which tests in an easy to understand fashion. For Statics, he explained things that my professor didn't, describing importance of defining line of actions, and even more conceptual aspects of the course material. I highly recommend him!

Joseph, 4 lessons with Charles

Very Knowledgeable in Geometry

My son needed some support with his Common Core Regents Geometry assignment and Charles was able to assist in a way that made sense to my son and helped him with the skills needed to be successful.

Oni, 5 lessons with Charles

Helpful College level Chemistry Tutor

My son is college student struggling in Chemistry. During his Spring break, he received daily tutor sessions with Charles. After all the sessions,my son was able to master all the topics reviewed. My son feels much more confident. Thanks Charles!
