Yeshiva University (Accounting)
Dear potential students:
When I first started, I found college to be very difficult. Being in a Dual Curriculum program, my day was long. I began classes at 8:00 a.m. and ended at 8:00 p.m. The courses I was enrolled in were challenging and the pressure of receiving good grades were high. At a certain point I realized that I would not be able to succeed on my own. I reached out to Academic Support and within a few days I was paired with a tutor. My tutor helped me with my studies as well as time management. After a few meetings with my tutor, I began to realize that college was doable as long as I had good time management and of course, good instruction. And so it was.
Over the past year I have tutored over 30 students in accounting totaling 350+ tutoring hours. I meet with students one-on-one and try to assess where they are holding and how to best cater to their individual needs. If the student has specific questions, I will address them first. If a student has trouble understanding majority of the material I will go through each learning objective and work through the corresponding homework problems. Once I am confident the student understands that learning objective, I will proceed to the next one. I have been told by all my students that they benefited tremendously from this approach. This can be proven by the fact that I have helped students go from a failing grade all the way to an A.
In addition, I taught a weekly accounting review course with an average of 15 students. The students would meet in a classroom and I would give a quick overview of the material. Then I would give a few practice problems and I would call on random people to explain various components and how to complete it. This method allowed me to cater to everyone, as opposed to individual students, while still getting the information across. If by the end of the lesson, students still had trouble understanding the material, I tried explaining it to them in various ways until they were confident they knew it.
Lastly, I taught an Exam Review Session, once a month, with approximately 50 students in attendance. I created a practice exam and would allow thirty minutes for each section. At the end of each section I gave out the answers and showed how I got to each answer. This gave students a chance to "get in the mood" of taking a test and to see how to tackle each problem.
Due to the time and effort I put into my tutoring, I was awarded the "Award For Service and Character" from my school, the Sy Syms School of Business. This year I plan on working with the Tutoring and Accounting Department to make both programs better catered to the students. I look forward to making an even bigger impact in the semester to come.
In case you wanted to know a little bit more about me:
I am currently a senior majoring in Accounting and Marketing, at Yeshiva University. I am currently on the Dean's List as I hold a 3.6 GPA. I was the President of The Business Leadership Club and am currently the President of The Sharsheret Club, a club dedicated to helping women and their families struggling with Breast Cancer. I was also on the wrestling team and performed as a lead role in the Yeshiva College Dramatics Society. I am a huge fan of The Harry Potter Series and have read the books countless times. I love Starbucks and for a period of time I had my own drink known as "The Shlomo" at one of their locations. I also founded and ran my own landscaping company and have worked as a personal manager at a catering company. I am currently working for a real estate firm in NYC and The Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey.
So why chose me, when there are hundreds of other tutors on WyzAnt? For a few reasons. The first being that I know exactly what you are going through. I know what its like to struggle in courses and need that helping hand. This is familiar to me because, as you now know, I needed a tutor as well. Also, I have spent the last 12 years of my life working with children and adults who have special needs. Because of this, I have developed a sense of patience and understanding that is crucial for anyone who wants to be a tutor. Lastly, I never give up. I invest so much time and effort into the students I tutor that whenever they take their tests a part of me feels like I am taking it too.
I hope to meet you soon and above all I hope you succeed in all your future endeavors.

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.
I am currently a senior at Yeshiva University studying accounting and marketing. Over the past year I have tutored 30+ students for a total of 350 tutoring hours.

I have worked with individuals with special needs for over 10 years and therefore have developed a sense of patience that has enabled me to become a successful tutor.
