Award-Winning ACT Math Tutors in New York, NY
Angela "...This provided me with a wide variety of material, lesson plans, and experiences that motivated me to work as a full-time AmeriCorps tutor in a public school in Chicago following graduation. I spent this year tutoring and mentoring fifth graders, providing whole classroom support and leading small group pull-outs. I also led an after school program focusing on homework help and Common Core skills for fifth and sixth grade..."
Nolan "...in Film & New Media and a concentration in Social Research & Public Policy. After tutoring peers in high school and university, I look forward to helping K-8 and high school students catch up, pull ahead, or cover a compelling subject in more depth. 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..."

Damian "...Somewhere down the road I gained a genuine interest in seeing my students succeed- not just at getting the grades they were after, but in gaining the kind of perspective and motivation that helps them do what they really want to do, long after our last session or their last final. It doesn't hurt that I've had a lot of practice with the things I teach, but I am much more proud of my more personal achievements than of my test scores or good grades. Some of my students who "hated" reading and writing now devour books (or at least magazines) and churn out masterful essays when they have to..."
Chandler "Since a young age, I have had a strong affinity for math and science. From algebra and geometry to chemistry and physics, I loved making sense of the natural world using mathematical expressions and scientific principles. I studied Chemical Engineering at Virginia Tech and also completed minors in Green Engineering and Chemistry, giving me a further insight into the beauty of science as well as the need for new scholars to engineer a better future for the planet..."

Alicia "...I have studied Spanish, French, Russian, and German and have traveled on my own to over twenty nations. I spent half of my junior year abroad in Barcelona, Spain, honing the Spanish I had been accumulating since the fifth grade, picking up some Catalan, and studying design and art history in one of the world’s foremost design capitals. I am experienced as a tutor in Spanish language, and have had much success bringing up my students' grades through personalized assessments and exercises built around their own weaknesses, in addition to those provided by the textbook and general homework help..."
Alyssa "... After graduating in May, I was eager to get into the classroom as soon as possible. Therefore, I applied and became a New York City Teaching Fellow, and am now certified to teach Adolescent Mathematics grades 7-12. This past summer, I taught 6th and 7th grade Math at a summer school in the Bronx..."
Scott "...The LSAT in particular I even found fun. Okay, maybe not the reading comprehension section, but the logic sections shouldn't be a chore to study! Fueled by my overseas teaching experience (where my 6-year old students knew very little English), I have a strong ability to communicate in the most basic terms possible, quickly turning complicated problems into solvable ones. A self-identifying nerd, my childhood obsession with Harry Potter has grown into an adulthood obsession. I love to watch TV -- some favorites are the Sopranos, Breaking Bad and Fargo, but I also watch Jeopardy every day to hone my random trivia knowledge..."
Sam "...Since graduation, I have been coaching wrestling at a nearby high school, as well as serving at a local restaurant. I have been tutoring students since I was in high school, in subjects ranging from simple arithmetic to advanced calculus to SAT preparation. I have even tutored middle school and high school Spanish! My clients have ranged from middle school students to college students..."

Beau "...I am pursuing a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering, with a focus on fluid mechanics and energy conversion. 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..."
Marla "...I particularly enjoy test taking and solving tricky math questions. I will help your student learn to enjoy the process, so he or she is better able to excel! I am originally from Los Angeles and have a BA in Psychology from Pomona College. I'm also a singer and musician and recently went back to school to pursue a graduate degree in Music Education..."
