Award-Winning ACT Writing Tutors in New York, NY
Alicia "...Louis, and graduate student in Writing at Columbia University. In May of 2011 I received my Bachelor’s in Comparative Arts, a unique interdisciplinary program offered through the WashU's Department of Comparative Literature - essentially a hybrid of Literature and Art History. I also completed minors in both Photography and Writing, two of my greatest passions. In the fall of 2012 I began my MFA in Writing with a concentration in non-fiction at Columbia. My extensive coursework in English and Creative Writing has given me a great deal of experience in workshop-based classes, and has made me a careful and skilled editor..."
Stephanie "I graduated from Oberlin College in 2008 with a double degree in math and politics, and then I moved to China. I spent more than four years in China working as a teacher for Chinese and international students. I've taught all different ages and types of students, in subjects ranging from ESL to math to SAT..."
Alexander "...I've studied drama in South Africa and Shakespeare in Oxford. I love going new places, encountering other cultures, and--yes--trying new foods. I'm a huge baseball fan and I love games of all kinds--Settlers of Catan is a favorite..."
Leela "...I also tutored math and reading for grade school children at the inner-city Pittsburgh school districts. I tutor science classes and ACT, SAT, and MCAT test prep. My favorite classes to tutor are anatomy/physiology and biochemistry! As a medical student I am seeing how these subjects are applied in the human body, which makes it really fun to tutor them! My tutoring style focuses on the student taking ownership of the material..."
Chloe "...I am an avid reader and writer. I have been tutoring since I was in high school, and I find it very rewarding to watch my students improve through our work. As a tutor, I make sure my students understand the fundamentals of the topic we are reviewing..."
Calleigh "I am a student at Yale University and am pursuing a B.A. in Economics. I have experience tutoring various levels of math and am very passionate about furthering the understanding of students in this subject. I also have a lot of test taking strategies that I have implemented in my own academic life and the practical experience of successfully taking many standardized tests which makes me a great resource for the ACT and SAT."
Emilia 'Mia' "...Most students come to me for my encouraging spirit and fun attitude because I always want to make learning a positive experience. Writing an essay or dissecting a book really boils down to the art of storytelling -- and I think, no matter your age, we all can appreciate to the transformative power of stories. Not everyone finds their words easily, and some even feel ashamed to take time to express themselves..."
Alexander "...As a REACH Mentor at Regis High School and an Activity Head at Brewster Day Camp, I’ve learned that listening is just as important in being a good teacher. Each child has a different relationship with language, and improving that relationship is impossible without first understanding it. English isn’t just a subject taught in school; it’s how we access the people and ideas around us..."
Jason "...Now it's my turn to pay it forward. I strive to provide my students with the same patience, empathy, and genuine passion for knowledge that my teachers gave me. I do most of my tutoring in technology and standardized testing, the former because it's my passion and the latter because it's my wheelhouse. In both my personal and professional lives, I spend a lot of time thinking about the intersection between technology and design..."
Michele "I have been teaching since 2004. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from California State University, Fullerton in 2006 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Child and Adolescent Development. I have taught and continue to teach English, lower level math, and science..."
