As a kid, I loved teachers who could explain the same thing several different ways, until you got what they were talking about. I try to be that kind of teacher. The most important skill that a student can learn is how to take the fear out of studying. Break big problems into smaller ones, try to reduce your load until you feel you can get the most out of the subjects that remain, and remember that other people have been here, and you're not alone.
I graduated from Columbia University in 2000 with a BA in BioPhysics. I have since worked as a Software Engineer. I tutor in English (reading, essay writing), math, biology, and computer programming.
Most of my students are college-age, but I also have some younger students and love teaching K-8 subjects.
I live in Brooklyn, and tend to teach in Brooklyn and Manhattan. I'm willing to travel to places such as Park Slope, Union Square, Upper West Side, etc.. I also sometimes teach out of my apartment. Students with cars who live in remote neighborhoods find it relatively easy to drive to my location.
