Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT English tutors in Brooklyn, NY
"I started tutoring again here in New York--and began applying to grad school in education--because I had come to miss these joys. Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT. My teaching style is highly customized to the student(s) I'm working with: my main goal is always to make him or her feel as comfortable as possible. But beyond that--unless we're quickly nearing a standardized test date and fundamental understanding is temporarily less of a priority than scoring ...

"As a theater director, my job is to coach actors until they are able to stand on their own two feet. I apply the same skill to my tutoring. For me, it's about lending a guiding hand until the student is able to handle the material on their own, without my guidance.."

" During my senior year, I researched and compared the educational systems and conditions faced by Chinese migrant children and those faced by undocumented children in America.

" I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone. I maintain flexibility and adjust my methodologies for each student that I work with. However, I generally like to keep my sessions casual, focusing on improving the student's confidence and scores, as I have found that some students become ...

I set reachable goals for every session and clear expectations about my responsibilities and the students responsibilities in preparing for our work together in order to maximize the time we have. I pride myself on being able to explain abstract concepts in practical terms and on being approachable and ...

" In every subject, I will make important content accessible by adapting to your learning style. I believe there are never more than a few silly mnemonics, clear diagrams, or concept reconfigurations between a student and a good understanding of tough material. I’ll be there to find out what works for you! A little about me: After attending Harvard as an undergraduate, I decided to defer law school in order to pursue another lifelong passion, dancing. I am currently dancing professionally with New York Theatre Ballet, but missed the particular rigor of a scholastic environment, and, of course, students! Prior to working for NYTB, I ...
