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..."
Dante "... However, I have consistently gravitated towards roles of training and instruction. I enjoy speaking to audiences, presenting lessons, and helping people build skills that will increase their success. One of my favorite positions was training law students on research and writing practices, and helping them learn skills that would save time and lead them to better search results..."
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.."
Paul "...Let's see: I won a couple writing grants (I know, I know--no surprise there); I became the longest tenured member of a particular honors society; I had some exploitative internships in the arts. In other words, I did it all. If you're looking for an experienced tutor capable of skillfully helping others in everything from ultra-super-advanced writing to math, lit, standard essay writing, test prep and more, I hope you'll consider reaching out to me, and I look forward to hearing from students off all ages, learning backgrounds and goals..."
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..."
Lee "...I do my best to listen and adapt to a student's learning style, while striving to help them feel confident in expressing their strengths, questions, and needs to others. In turn, I intend to help them become motivated to pursue their academic betterment independently, encouraging them to embrace education as an opportunity for personal growth and empowerment. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.A. in English. I predominantly tutor reading comprehension and writing skills, in addition to providing essay planning and editing help for all subjects and grade levels..."
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..."
