Award-Winning ACT Tutors in New York, NY
Keenan "...While a student at Bennington, I studied literature, music, and French. I graduated with honors, and was the commencement speaker for the class of 2011. After graduating, I ran an acting camp, and then taught English in Tibet for eight months..."
Kunal "...I always try to understand what the student's strengths and weaknesses are and then go from there. I explain each step carefully and then allow the student to eventually try more difficult topics on their own once I have helped them understand the concepts they need to know. I encourage a great deal of practice and organization to help clarify any problem areas the student might have. Other than academia, I enjoy reading, playing sports, and exercising..."
Michael "...I have helped students write their college and graduate school essays, become stronger and more confident readers, and develop strong analytical writing skills. The Humanities are my area of proficiency: English, Literature, Analysis, Public Speaking, Writing, Government/Politics, both SAT and ACT Reading and English, SAT Writing, and ACT Science. I want to ensure that every lesson proves valuable and thus never charge if a student or parent is not entirely satisfied. I also have a flexible schedule and 6 hour cancellation policy..."
Wallis Elizabeth "...As a tutor at my University's writing center, I edited papers for a variety of subjects and worked with art majors to develop honors theses. I love brainstorming creative approaches to papers with students, and I may be one of the few recent graduates who still thinks grammar is exciting. My enthusiasm is contagious! I am a North Carolina native and an avid college basketball fan..."
Sewanee University of the South - BA, Russian, Art History
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.."
Joe "...My students have ranged in skill and course level, and include students from adolescents through the college level. My major goal is to help my students understand the core concepts behind their current coursework. Using real world examples to explain not only how to get to an answer, but to explain exactly why that is the answer is a huge part of my teaching philosophy..."
Binghamton University - Bachelors, Cell and Molecular Biology
Sarah "... I like to stress the big picture in test prep, and the importance of knowing how to take a test, including pacing, skipping problems, recovering from a mistake; things beyond just memorizing formulas. Outside of academia, I recently moved to NYC and love to check out vegetarian restaurants around the city. I also do part-time film production, and enjoy developing scripts and being on set..."
Ian James Marshall "...While my strength is in test preparation, I delight in trivia and the anecdotal in history and language. I believe first and foremost that education rewards those with intellectual curiosity and that the goal of any educator should be to foster and encourage the desire to learn. I emphasize positive reinforcement and strongly believe that tests are designed to test what students do know rather than punish them for what they do not..."
Damian "If you choose me to be your tutor then you will definitely ace your test. I'm a great math tutor because I understand the material thoroughly, am patient, and know how to explain things. I attended Stuyvesant High School and the University of Chicago; I am currently studying Data Science with Johns Hopkins.."
University of Chicago - Current Undergrad, None
Caitlin "...In my previous tutoring experience, I've worked with students of ages ranging from 10 to 18. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, my favorite to teach are Math, Chemistry, Physics, and Test Prep, because they provide the greatest problem solving challenges. I enjoy working through difficult problems with students, because I believe that with the right guidance, they are universally capable of rising to the challenge..."
