About Evan

I graduated with a B.A in philosophy from the City College of New York. While in college, I did very well in the French classes I took for my core requirements.

My experience includes a year in 2003 and 2004 volunteering at the East Harlem School at Exodus, I spent time tutoring students in the 5th through 8th grade in pre-algebra and introductory algebra. As part of my duties as a volunteer at the East Harlem School, I also tutored pre-K children in basic math and reading at a nearby after school program. I also volunteered at Street Squash where I tutored 7th and 8th grade students once a week.

While I tutor, I want the students to not only say what the answer is to a problem, but also to understand the logic of solving said problems so related problems can be more easily done and to see how this may be applicable to experiences outside of the confines of the routine of schooling. In addition, I want to make sure they do not see me as an infallible authority figure but as a guide.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I spent a year volunteering at the East Harlem School at Exodus House where I tutored students in the 5th through 8th grade. The bulk of my tutoring was to the 5th and 6th graders. Also, I used some of this time tutoring pre-K and kindergarten kids at a nearby program for math, reading, and writing. Outside of that one period, I have visited the East Harlem School to proctor exams and help the younger students out for whatever homework problems they may have.
