Award-Winning ACT Math Tutors in New York, NY
Andrew "...I have tutored students in English Literature, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Economics, and math through Pre-Calculus ever since I was in high school, and also provide tutoring for college entrance exams (SAT, ACT).

Ryan "... Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning. That being said, I try to modify my teaching style to best benefit the type of student I am tutoring. Over the last year, I have been teaching test-prep for the ACT, SAT, and High School Entrance Exams, as well as high school writing; US History; Literature; and Chemistry, and all grade-school subjects..."
Zain "...Since high school I have developed curriculums and tutored students in areas like character education for elementary schoolers, college essay writing for underprivileged high schoolers, and standardized test-taking for all ages. My teaching philosophy revolves around the idea that my success as a tutor depends on my ability to address the student in particular, given their background, behavior, and aspirations. This draws on my own experience as a student in the personalized, small classes offered at a small liberal arts school like Wesleyan..."

Genesis "...John's University has ensured that I not only can tutor students in technical fields but also humanities. I am a savvy test taker and would be able to teach your child not only the content necessary to excel at an exam and other standardized tests, but also how to utilize strategies to maximize efficiency and accuracy. In teaching, I enjoy connecting the subject matter to topics that would not necessarily seem relevant to the lesson in order to engage the student on a deeper level..."
