Award-Winning ACT Reading Tutors in New York, NY
Garon "...I was involved with the school's creative writing community; I hosted readings and won literary prizes from UConn and Mount Holyoke. I also worked for the University Writing Center. Working with students one-on-one, informed by faculty guidance and frequent workshops, I developed a tutoring style that focuses on collaboration and flexibility..."
Justin "...Under my administration we tracked students' scores and attained the highest average grade increase in the program's history. By guiding other tutors and consulting students for feedback on their experience, I got a very keen sense of what works and what doesn't. In tutoring, I focus on results, but not to exclusion..."
Caroline "...Most recently I tutored college test prep (ACT/SAT/SAT II/AP) and college level statistics. In the past I've been a math homework helper for elementary school students, a swim instructor, and led a bilingual workshop in Panama on environmental conservation, which culminated in the awarding of certificate degrees to 12 adult students. My favorite subjects to tutor are SAT and ACT math. While these are the subjects most students dread, I find that this is where a good tutor can induce the most "Ah ha!" moments because there are so many patterns that can help you ace that test if you know where to look..."
Matthew "...Louis in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Physics with a second major in classical guitar performance, taking a year off after my sophomore year to study flamenco guitar at the University of Seville in Spain. I started working in biomedical research during my sophomore year and continued throughout college. After graduating, I worked in ophthalmology research at Washington University Medical before moving to New York City, where I am currently conducting breast cancer research as the lab manager in an immunology lab at Columbia University Medical Center..."

Leigh "...I have ambitions to someday affect educational policy and administration - maybe I'll be a principal or school superintendent. In college, I coordinated a reading program with local elementary school students that took place once a week. I also tutored at my college's writing center, working with fellow college students to improve and enhance writing assignments in all disciplines and to strengthen basic grammar and organizational skills..."
Genesis "...The liberal arts curriculum I took at St. 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..."

Joan "...I enjoy helping people overcome the obstacles that block them from achieving academic understanding or from expressing their ideas. I take a “results based” approach to tutoring. I aim to know the student, build his or her confidence, and develop strategies and routines that assist a person in becoming an independent learner..."
Caitlin "I am currently working toward my Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University with a minor in Entrepreneurship and Management. In my previous tutoring experience, I've worked with students of ages ranging from 10 to 18. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, my favorite to teach are Math, Chemistry, Physics, and Test Prep, because they provide the greatest problem solving challenges..."
