Elementary Math,
#### Elementary Math

For the last three years, I have tutored a brother (presently 5th grade) and his sister (presently 7th grade). The parents love my style of tutoring, and the positive effect I have on their children.
Furthermore, I have taught elementary Math to small classes (5-8 students) of grades 4 and 5 at a tutoring academy during summer school. The reviews I received from the students, and the director of the academy of my style of teaching were very favorable.

Elementary Science,
#### Elementary Science

I have worked with students in elementary (grades 2-5) and middle school (grades 6-8), helping them to become proficient in reading, comprehension, science, and math skills. All students showed significant improvement in the subject areas, and went on to do well in the state wide exams. I have even prepared some students for either the SHSAT (grade 7) or the Hunter High School (grade 6) entrance exam.

During the last three years, I tutored a number of students in ACT Math, and the results were impressive - students scores improved significantly. For instance, a repeat student improved from a 5 to an 8 while another improved from a 7 to a 9 in Math. This was due to the different style of tutoring for each student, where I identified individual weaknesses, and provided guidance and strategies on how to overcome such weaknesses. The results in the student's ability to minimize errors, thereby leading to an improvement in scores.

In addition, I have tutored a student from Manhattan College throughout a whole semester, on solving first and second order differential equations of the homogeneous, and non homogeneous types. He ended with an A average for the course.
I have tutored other college students (Queens College, BMCC, Stony Brook) in non- Calculus and Calculus based physics. In the latter, I assisted students in finding solutions to problems involving first and second order differential equations from Mechanics, Gravity, EM Theory (Maxwell's Equations), and LCR circuits. In every case, each student finished his/ her course with either an A or B average.

Reading
ACT Science,
#### ACT Science

The ACT Science does not require a student to have any prior knowledge of any Science subject. However, students must be able to comprehend passages, and interpret or infer information from graphs and tables. Nevertheless, the most important factor for a student to do well is probably time management - a student has only 35 minutes to answer 40 science questions. To get the student to do well in this section, my tutoring techniques focus on speed reading, identifying keywords, and how to correctly interpret the information that is given.
