Award-Winning ACT Tutors in New York, NY
Michelle "...In addition to teaching, over the last five years, I have served as a Mentor to youth and college students. I believe that encouragement and mentoring are essential components of a successful tutoring relationship. While teaching students the skills they need to succeed, I help students to gain confidence in their abilities, and to see their own potential..."
Lillian "...I completed my undergraduate degree in 2013 at Columbia University, where I majored in English and Biology. After graduation, I spent a year working at a pediatric HIV clinic in Lesotho on a Princeton in Africa fellowship, and later, I completed my Master's in Public Health at University College Dublin on a Mitchell Scholarship. Having completed many applications in the course of my college and postgraduate degrees, I have significant experience in personal statement editing and application counseling. I am also happy to tutor for SAT critical reading and writing sections, MCAT, essay writing, and English courses..."
Monica "... My favorite thing about teaching is helping students gain confidence, whether in their writing, test-taking, speaking, or performance. When students are assured they are capable, when their confidence is nurtured, there is growth by leaps and bounds. I currently volunteer at my son's preschool, helping children learn to read, and broadening their appreciation of children's literature. I'm a blogger for Huffington Post Parents, and enjoy proofreading and editing my writer-husband's latest work..."
Christin "I have a Master of Science degree in Optics and am working on a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, so it's not surprising that my favorite subjects to tutor are Physics and Math! I enjoy helping my clients increase their confidence as they improve their skills. I always make an effort to find applications that are interesting and relevant; I believe that math and science knowledge benefits everyone, even those who aren't pursuing careers in STEM fields. My other interests include in-line skating, reading, music (I play French horn and harp), knitting, and container gardening.."
Adam "...So in my spare time, I want to continue connecting to students by tutoring various subjects from math to English to test prep. As for test prep, I believe that most standardized tests don’t test your ability in their stated subjects as much as they do your ability to take those tests. Therefore, it is critically important to teach not just the basic skills, but the ability to succeed on the test as well..."
Cassiah "... I am a fun-loving, patient, and calm tutor who takes time and energy to understand how each tutee learns best. Some people are visual learners, others auditory, and others need everything written down. However you learn, I want to take the time to identify your strengths in order to reach your academic (and personal!) goals! I have experience tutoring middle school, high school, and college students-- but I am also more than willing to tutor other age groups! I love to make learning fun, especially because schoolwork can often be frustrating and exhausting. Aside from tutoring, I currently do social work at a community-based non-profit organization in Brooklyn, NY. I am very excited to meet eager learners..."
Ken "I received my MS in Applied Mathematics at Columbia University and my BS in Mathematics at New York University. Throughout college and graduate school, I have tutored students from a multitude of backgrounds and helped them along their journey to academic success. Each student has their own path of least resistance, and helping them find the best way to understand a particular subject paves the way for future excellence in all areas of learning..."
Kevin "...I think I excel at giving students new ways to think about certain problems which may give them a better understanding of the material. I don't feel like it has been a productive session unless I come away having learned something as well. In my spare time, I am an avid sports fan and a seasoned fantasy sports player..."
Patrick "... My experience in tutoring is somewhat varied; in high school, I was first introduced to tutoring as a requirement for National Honor Society. I tutored in math, English, and Latin at that time; in high school, I also volunteered at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center to assist in GED tutoring sessions. While studying abroad, I tutored math and science sessions in low-income communities outside of Cape Town..."
Dan "...I love to travel, and feel fortunate to have worked on projects that have taken me to Africa and England. I recently returned to New York (where I was born and raised), and am excited to "pay it forward" to the next generation, helping students reach their full potential. I'm a strong advocate for creating individualized educational plans that are suited to best meet each student's needs..."
