Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Writing tutors in Hempstead, NY
"For each student, I put a strong emphasis on personalizing their studies to their needs and interests. My passions as a scholar lie in the humanities -- my two and a half years in the pre-medical program at Fordham notwithstanding -- particularly in American and European history, literature and Latin. In the fall, I aim to apply to graduate school for classical studies, and I anticipate tutoring with Varsity to be very instrumental in getting me back into an academic mode of thinking. I am excited to learn from my students while also imparting some of my excitement for and interest in my various disciplines." ...

Through this program, I led Regents test-prep sessions in Algebra and ELA for 30 8th grade students, worked individually with 6th-11th grade students on homework in all subject areas, and worked with a high school junior in preparation for his SAT.

" When I am not busy with school or leisure, I will be helping you or your child grasp a difficult subject or improve a test score. I encourage my students to talk me through their thought process when tackling a problem, so that I can pinpoint exactly what is preventing them from arriving at the right solution. While getting the right answer is important in life, and especially on tests, my time at MIT and NYU Poly has taught me that fostering the analytical thinking skills required to arrive at the answer yourself are much more valuable life skills. On account of my background in engineering and the life sciences, my areas of expertise run the ...

" Sometimes, a student simply cannot see how to connect theory and practice, sometimes, they don't realize how good they are at something, until someone else points it out. As a full-time classroom teacher, I am passionate about teaching, dedicated to nurturing students so they may reach their full potential.

" I believe there are never more than a few silly mnemonics, clear diagrams, or concept reconfigurations between a student and a good understanding of tough material. I’ll be there to find out what works for you! A little about me: After attending Harvard as an undergraduate, I decided to defer law school in order to pursue another lifelong passion, dancing. I am currently dancing professionally with New York Theatre Ballet, but missed the particular rigor of a scholastic environment, and, of course, students! Prior to working for NYTB, I gained additional writing experience as a fellow with the American Constitution Society, a ...
