Award-Winning ACT Math Tutors in New York, NY
Kate "...The knowledge I gained from that experience helped me through my coursework and my college applications leading me on the track to continued academic success. The experience also taught me the importance of supplementary instruction and education. While many in the program came from schools with low college acceptance rates and families where college was not the norm, the program boasted a nearly 100% college acceptance rate. The support from the staff and the faculty gave us all the confidence and the tools needed to succeed. After graduating from the University of Chicago in 2011 I decided to take the skills I had learned from my time in the Collegiate Scholars Program and my time in college and apply them to the position of College Countdown Instructor..."

Nolan "...I specialize in teaching personalized courses in writing, public speaking, and math. For students studying for the ACT or SAT I offer a preparatory course with measured progress reports as we move through each section. I attended a competitive university and I know what it takes to make a student a contender at the highest level of admissions. I keep the material fresh and memorable through a variety of audiovisual approaches and real-world examples. One-on-one learning should never mean lectures, and I like to hold an ongoing conversation so students use their own learning skills in new ways to solve new kinds of problems..."

Ashton "After attending Hunter College High School and the Collegiate School, I went on to Middlebury College, where I successfully juggled the rigors of academics and athletics by majoring in History, minoring in English and American Literatures, and playing on the men’s basketball team. Since graduating in 2011, I’ve taught numerous ACT, SAT, AP US History and World History classes, and developed a teaching style that strives to maximize student outcomes. I also consult startups and nonprofits with their digital products, most recently in Lagos, Narobi, Paris, Hong Kong and Shanghai. I spend most of my free time coding web and mobile apps, reading memoirs and short stories, writing comedy sketches, and winning as many fantasy sports leagues as I can enter.."
Alicia "...In the fall of 2012 I began my MFA in Writing with a concentration in non-fiction at Columbia. My extensive coursework in English and Creative Writing has given me a great deal of experience in workshop-based classes, and has made me a careful and skilled editor. I believe one of my greatest strengths is not only my own ability to write fluidly, but also to help others do the same while still respecting their individual voices. I love to work with students on college essays, other applications, and general writing skills - this past year, one of my students with whom I worked on a college essay was accepted to every school to which he applied, and I work to achieve that goal with all of my students! I'm also experienced in Verbal and Writing test prep, particularly for the SAT, and find great satisfaction in watching my students' scores steadily improve. In short, if your tutoring needs have to do with words, I’ve got them covered! I also devoted a good portion of time in my undergraduate career to foreign language study and to developing an appreciation of global culture..."
Alyssa "... Math is one of my passions, although I have a strong liberal arts background as well. Throughout my undergraduate career, I was constantly involved in tutoring and mentoring programs. I absolutely love having the opportunity to work one-on-one with students. I enjoy getting to know students on a personal level, enabling me to push each child to his or her fullest potential..."
Samuel "...I have tutored several of my peers in the past on coursework ranging from logic to math and political thought. I enjoy tutoring public speaking and writing most, though I also tutor AP Government, SAT, and the ACT. I tend to explain a problem/concept before having a student tackle it. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TED videos, and cooking without recipes..."

Beau "...I have tutoring experience from my senior year in high school, when I ran my own test prep and tutoring service for sophomores and juniors. Most of my experience is in SAT and ACT test prep, but I have also done tutoring in the maths and sciences and English composition. While I am a Mechanical Engineering major, I have always had a profound appreciation for great literature and for writing good English, and I would love to pass that along to all of my students. Whenever I tutor, my main objective is not simply to plant more knowledge in the student's mind, but to give them a greater understanding of broader fields of inquiry, so that they reach a greater understanding of how the different academic domains are connected and interdependent..."
David "...Thompson Middle School, tutoring Math in grades 7th-9th. I also teach students who are homebound through Syosset Home Tutoring, receiving work directly from Math teachers. I have home-taught just about everything from 5th grade math to Pre-Calculus. I truly enjoy seeing the light go on in a student's head and knowing I am the one who made that happen. My sense of humor and down-to-earth touch make the experience enjoyable for both me and the student..."
