Award-Winning English Tutors in New York, NY
Allison "Tutoring has been something I have encountered my entire life. As the oldest of four, I grew up helping my sisters with school work since they started school. In high school, I began tutoring in math and chemistry..."
Tom "...I constantly search for new information and am an avid learner with regard to both people and subject matter. I have a great deal of energy and am at times an irrepressible joker; some might say a class clown. When I am not in the classroom you are likely to find me playing soccer (played club soccer at Lehigh), basketball, or working out in the gym to ensure my health and fitness..."

Over the course of my career I have been certified in the states of New York, Connecticut, and Washington..."
Aaronson "... I have a background in Math and Science and am getting my PhD minor in Statistics and Research Design.

Keenan "...Recognizing this fact renders comprehension and composition obstacles far more manageable. Furthermore, the two activities are inseparable: to write is to learn to read, and vice versa. Similarly, speaking bolsters facility with language on the page, and vice versa. For several years, I was the lead Writing Tutor at Bennington College, a school renowned for its literature department..."
Amanda "It is my responsibility to help my students discover how they learn best, and to make even challenging concepts comprehensible by playing to their strengths. I particularly enjoy helping students learn to articulate clear arguments in their writing assignments, but am also at home working through tough social and political theory, most high school coursework, and SAT and LSAT preparation. As a writing tutor, I will help you make the most of your source material and develop your instincts and ideas, while helping you to write correctly, concisely, and persuasively..."
Ari "I graduated from Rowan University with a degree in Management Information Systems. As a student who once struggled with classes in the past, I truly know the difference a good tutor can make. Tutors have the ability to break subjects down into more understandable ways for people who do not see things in the black and white ways that they are taught in schools..."
Michael "...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..."
