« Hi all- My son took instruction from Gil. Mr. Shuster had a great connection with my son. Gil made learning very down to earth and had a great way of communicating with Jack. He had a remarkable way of explaining things. Gil had me wishing that I was back in school, in need of tutoring. I highly recommend Gil Shuster as a Superprof tutor »

Tutor for chemistry, math, test prep with over 10 years experience. All my students' scores improved hugely! I can help you!!

Methodology

Every student is different, and I work towards not only helping them with the material, but to see where they are having study or test taking issues and help them overcome these issues. I encourage students to ask questions and foster a supportive learning atmosphere, where they can proceed at a pace they feel comfortable with. I incorporate real-world examples to make the subject more interesting, relevant and approachable.

Background

I can help you!! All my students' test scores and grades and SAT scores improved!

I have over ten years of teaching and tutoring experience with extensive standardized test prep, chemistry and math tutoring experience.

My tutoring experience is with students of all different abilities, from both public and private prep schools, from middle school through college. All my students had their test scores and grades improve substantially - to quote one Columbia Prep parent "Before Gil, C-. After Gil, B+. We were thrilled!" And to quote a Dalton Prep parent "He helped in a different area: self confidence. My son felt he had not only memorized, but mastered the topic. He received an unexpected A- in Honors Chemistry: certainly a success! Gil was invaluable, both for his knowledge of the material and approachable personality."

I graduated from Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and from Columbia University with a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering. At Columbia I taught engineering classes and was awarded the Jacob Millman Prize for Excellence in Teaching.

But these credentials are the background - what is vital and more important than having a thorough knowledge of the subject matter is that I can communicate this knowledge effectively, clearly and patiently, with humor and an understanding of where each individual student is having difficulty.

Hi all- My son took instruction from Gil. Mr. Shuster had a great connection with my son. Gil made learning very down to earth and had a great way of communicating with Jack. He had a remarkable way of explaining things. Gil had me wishing that I was back in school, in need of tutoring. I highly recommend Gil Shuster as a Superprof tutor

Gil was an exceptional tutor for my 2 sons not only in their high school Calculus classes but also Chemistry. He is very bright, personable, patient, and supportive. Both my sons grades increased impressively as well as their sense of competency and success. They think Gil is great as do I. As a psychologist who has worked with a wide range of school staff for over 25 years, I found Gil to possess an outstanding level of professionalism and dedication. I would give Gil my strongest recommendation to any parent and/or students. Best, Dr. Deborah Elkind
