I stress understanding rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 10 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, but it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

With a degree in education, I use my passion for math to guide my students to success, tailoring lessons to the unique qualities and personal preferences and goals of each student. My students learn and improve their skills quickly using different techniques for each student. Math is a subject that can be taught many different ways and not all ways work for everybody, so I use many different tools in helping each student find the way that works for them. Tips and tricks, tutoring, and instruction on new material are made fun with each lesson. My students quickly learn and improve their skills for their individual needs and goals.

15+ years' experience -- math and science specialist!

If you've been muddling along with algebra or chemistry has you hitting your head against the wall, I've got your back! Focused but encouraging, enthusiastic but personable, I've patiently helped my students reach that "light-bulb moment" countless times.

Guiding someone to understanding a concept they struggle with is of course a major part of tutoring, but I'm also really big on coaching students to be methodical and have a system. Content knowledge is only part of the puzzle; problem-solving skills are crucial. Check out my testimonials to hear from my students themselves on that!

About Stephanie

NOTE: I recommend 90 minutes for a first session -- in my experience, 60 minutes tends not to be enough to both get the lay of the land and deliver a reassuring and substantive amount of support. I look forward to working with you! I went to Princeton University and studied molecular biology. I w

Marwa has been very patient and engaging with my seventh grader who is challenged with math primarily due to dyslexia. So far, it seems to be a great student/tutor match and I’m eager to see how this propels my daughter forward towards a successful year. Thank you Marwa for your dedication and excellent work!
Laura Gatto
Marwa helped my son on very short notice understand material from his advanced 8th grade algebra class. He felt such relief after spending time with her and gaining a better grasp of the material. We will definitely be booking Marwa again!

She's a gem. One of the best math tutors I have ever had and she is always willing to help.

I view algebra like a game: there are simple rules that govern what you can do, and if you know and understand the rules, the game is a whole lot easier. If algebra seems to be a struggle for a student, I can help them identify the basic concepts (i.e. rules) on which they need to strengthen their understanding. Algebra is an essential tool I use to solve a myriad of problems every day as an engineer, and so I am intimately familiar with its many different topics, and perhaps because I understand its value, I genuinely enjoy teaching algebra to others.

I remember what it was like to personally struggle with algebra, and I know the most common pitfalls which make it seem more difficult than it actually is. Because of this experience, I am quite adept on picking up on my students' weak points, and helping them clear up fuzzy understandings of the rules of algebra. I started teaching algebra six years ago when I first started teaching it to myself. Since that time, algebra has been

I am taking a doctoral statistics class where the assignments are all theory and understanding of research versus specific math equations. Colin is great at helping me understand the material. I appreciate his tutoring skills. I will be using him again when I take my intermediate statistics and research class.

He is extremely thorough and takes the time to ensure she understands the math concepts. He has not only built her confidence but has made math more enjoyable for her to learn. He is very patient and it is obvious that he loves to teach. If you are looking for a great teacher - I highly recommend Colin."

She learned in 15 minutes from Julissa, what she couldn't learn for many many classes with her regular teacher. After only her first session she went and googled some of the math problems they discussed to go practice, on her own! And asked that I bump her session with Julissa to twice a week instead of only once! Thank you SO MUCH!"
