Award-Winning ACT English Tutors in New York, NY
Heather "I have been working in the area of Education since college, and have had private and corporate tutoring experience. For the majority of my professional career I worked for Pearson Education, the largest Educational publisher in the country. There I worked alongside teachers and professors to help write and develop some of today's most cutting edge educational texts and technology..."
Frank "...I have had similar success preparing students for SAT subject tests and AP exams. My students benefit from my comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter, high energy, enthusiasm, and patience. I spend time getting to know the individual needs of my students and then tailor a program of study that best addresses both subject matter gaps and test taking strategies and skills..."
Rebecca "I have been helping students understand calculus, improve their reading comprehension, and excel on assignments and tests for more than five years. I strive to not only prepare students to exceed academic standards but also to be critical thinkers and curious, well-informed human beings. I recently completed a dual degree at Indiana University and moved to New York to take a gap year before beginning graduate school..."
Elizabeth "I'm a Harvard graduate and a former high school science teacher with Teach for America. I'm in New York studying theater and voice but miss my science classes and students like crazy! I'm particularly strong in biology but also totally comfortable with chemistry, English and writing, social studies/history, and test prep. As a teacher my style is to help students discover the answers on their own, and become more confident in their ability to use critical thinking..."
Ava "...I also minored in Theater and Performance Studies. In college, I served as President of my A Cappella group and I am very passionate about the theater arts. Since graduation, I have worked closely with students..."
Rumit "I am a recent graduate from Franklin and Marshall College with a major in Economics and a minor in Math. I have been tutoring for the last five years and have taught several subjects including Math (Algebra, Trigonometry, SAT, and SAT Subject Tests), Physics (High school and SAT Subject Tests), SAT Writing, and Economics (High school and AP level). I am extremely passionate about teaching and have taught students of several age groups (12 through 19)..."
Jennifer "...My passion for the subjects I tutor enables me to enthusiastically engage with students, help them discover their strengths, and find solutions to their weaknesses. I love helping students achieve their potential and explore their academic interests. I love traveling, yoga, cross country running, eating interesting food (that others prepare, unfortunately, cooking isn't a strength), and spending time with my friends..."
Rachel "I've been teaching and tutoring since 2002, throughout college and grad school and while doing neuroscience research. I love tutoring one-on-one because I can get to know students and gear the lessons toward their interests, which helps them learn more quickly, retain new skills better, and enjoy the tutoring sessions more. I particularly enjoy teaching science, writing, and test prep..."
Osman "...I have a significant amount of tutoring experience, and I have produced positive results. Among the techniques I employ as a tutor, I stress self-help strategies to ensure that students do not become dependent on the crutch of a tutor or teacher. Often, a student may work well with an instructor but is unable to solve problems or understand concepts alone..."
Chris "... Complete explanations, which I review with them, point by point, are printed on the back, first by me, and then, by imitation, by them. I stress the quality of each of these seemingly obvious steps, because the effectiveness of my method depends upon all of them working together. I insist on a minimum of three problems reviewed in one session and focus on the student adopting the method of short, very frequent review of the material, throughout the day..."
