About Ayelet

I believe people learn by doing, and whether I am teaching in the classroom, or tutoring one-on-one, I focus on practicing concepts to build confidence and understanding. My job as a tutor is to help my students become independent. I make sure to offer strategies for organization and note-taking, so that my students can transition to being more successful and independent learners. One of my favorite things about tutoring is sharing my experiences of what it means to have a career in physics, beyond the basic material covered in the classroom. Physics and math really do show up in the real world, all around us!

I am currently a PhD student in Materials Science at Columbia University, teaching a physics lab at Barnard on the side. I have a strong background in math, science and education. I graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics and went on to get my Masters in Adolescent Mathematics Education from Hunter College. I taught high school math and physics for 2 years. I have been tutoring for more than 8 years, and have helped many students to succeed in all levels of math and physics.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I hold NYS certification in high school math, and I have a Masters in Adolescent Mathematics Education from Hunter College.

Differential Equations

I am qualified to teach differential equations - I was required to take an in depth college course in differential equations as part of my engineering physics degree, and then, when I took higher level physics and electrical engineering courses, as part of my undergraduate degree, I constantly used what I had learned in my differential equations class. This background has given me both an in depth understanding of the subject, and an appreciation for its real world applications.

Linear Algebra

I am qualified to teach linear algebra - I was required to take an in depth college course in linear algebra as part of my engineering physics degree, and then, when I learned quantum mechanics, as part of my undergraduate degree, I constantly used what I had learned in my linear algebra class. This background has given me both an in depth understanding of the subject, and an appreciation for its real world applications.

Physics

I have a Bachelors degree in Applied Physics from Cornell University, and I am currently a PhD student, studying physics at Columbia University. I hold NYS certification in high school math, and I have a Masters in Adolescent Mathematics Education from Hunter College.

Excellent Tutor — Ayelet is super organized and super knowledgeable and most importantly very good at getting the material across in a way that my daughter understands. My daughter (11th grade) feels much more prepared for math exams (pre-calc) after her sessions with Ayelet. ...
