I'm a sophomore at Cornell University, and a recent graduate from Stuyvesant High School (a specialized high school in downtown Manhattan). I have much experience tutoring kids from ages 6 to 18 through the company Allen Mentoring in subjects such as physics, math, english, and history. I have scored a 34 on my ACT exam (out of 36). If you haven't found anyone already, I would be happy to be of assistance. Please let me know. I would be happy to answer any questions beforehand. Thank you!

What is your teaching philosophy?
My ultimate goal through tutoring is to have students become encouraged and motivated to learn. Tutoring through a positive attitude and proper guidance can improve scores and improve a lifestyle.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would talk to the parent and see what the student has an issue with. Next, I'd talk to the student and see where they need help. I would ask the student how they want to be helped and what method is best for them to understand the material; I would adjust to that work ethic. My goal is to create a positive relationship with both the student and the parent.
