Carefully selected, highly-credentialed English tutors in Suffolk Couty, NY
"I will work best with Russian-language speakers but am open to working with other foreign-language students if they are at an intermediate level. Finally, I'm looking to work with students who need help with English. Whether it's homework, standardized test prep, or pesky college admission essays that you need help with, I'm more than happy to help! These were my best subjects in school, but I realize it's not a walk in the park for everyone. Let me ease your anxiety about writing and show you how much (and easy!) it can be! ."

" In fact, my first creative writing class I took at Middlebury, my professor told me that writing was not my strong suit. I was discouraged. Frustrated, even. But not to the point that I wanted to quit. Rather, I wanted to be better."

"But I don't rely on memorization alone - knowing facts is only one part of a holistic education. For example, a good essay depends on insight just as much as knowledge. As a tutor, I seek to make the subject matter personal. My students figure out a way to care about information for themselves, not just for a better test score or a higher grade.."

"One of my students achieved the highest score in her school on the Social Studies State Exam. In addition, my students improved by 30% after only 20 tutoring hours (on average, comparing pre-assessment and post-assessment scores). I have experience tutoring grades 1-8, but I really shine with elementary students. I strive to help students reach the next level; whether they are struggling to keep up, or striving to be at the head of the class. I have experience tutoring in Reading Comprehension, Writing, Grammar, Math, Science and Social Studies." ...

"I personalize my tutoring sessions by listening to what students want help with, gauging their needs based on their writing or language ability, and understanding their teachers’ (or exams’) expectations. When I tutor, I enjoy being able to teach students as I assist them with their writing and language. My goal is not just to help students edit their work, but rather to give them the tools to improve their current piece of writing and their writing in the future, their overall language fluency, and their critical understanding of the subject more broadly. I aim to help students succeed in the classroom and on their continued path through ...

" My work with various educational non-profits has allowed me to engage students from a range of backgrounds. I began tutoring my first semester at college with middle school. As I helped them with their homework and test prep for high school, I developed a teaching style that promoted good study skills for my students to use beyond our tutoring sessions. For the past three years, I have worked extensively with students in SAT preparation and the college application process as a whole."

" I like to approach subjects from different angles, as I think that it's important to not only learn the material for a specific subject, but to also discover which techniques and methods of learning work best for you or your child. In discovering how you best learn, you can improve your understanding and performance in all subjects! I started my tutoring journey in 7th grade, when I tutored my slightly older friend for the Math B Regents. Seeing her excitement when she figured out a new concept is what inspired me to continue helping others in their educational endeavors. I tutored various people since then, helping them with subjects such ...

" For example, if you have a student who loves sports but struggles with math, I have a slew of analogies that can help. To me, tutoring is a delicate balance between a hands-on and hands-off approach. Any tutor worth his salt will know not just how to guide students through concepts, but also when to let the student attempt problems without help. As the student learns a concept, the first approach is used more often; once he or she has mastered a subject, the second becomes more important. I specialize in test prep (SAT and ACT), and can provide help in social studies (Government and American History), English (writing, literature, grammar), ...
