Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Reading tutors in Manhattan, NY
" I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music. My enthusiasm for working with students continues to grow as I meet more capable, intelligent young people who often just need insight into how to tackle the mass of material they receive in the classroom. My background is as a classically trained singer, and I know first-hand the value of seeking the best help to improve one’s skills. I moved to New York City to continue my own development as a performer at the highest level, and I appreciate the will to aspire that this city instills." ...

" Some of my professors were not that interested or particularly talented at teaching the material, so I turned to the TAs, who were graduate students in my major. They were incredibly helpful and provided a fresh perspective with keen insight that I couldn't have gained from simply reading the textbook. Most importantly, I experienced a role-reversal in which I was being tutored. I think this has improved my teaching style and has allowed me to better relate with the students I now tutor. I strive to actively engage my students, rather than lecture to them." ...

"I work hard with my students to instill the confidence needed to succeed while building deep, intuitive understandings of key concepts that are critical for success. During my teaching sessions I try to use engaging and amusing examples to illustrate the subject, with a keen understanding that learning is most fruitful when student and teacher are enjoying themselves.
