Award-Winning Grammar and Mechanics Tutors in New York, NY
Melissa "... I benefited from private tuition myself and would like to consider my story a successful one, therefore I hope to carry on the benefits of tutoring to my own students. I have 7 years experience private tutoring a diverse range of subjects in New York and London, and 6 years experience as a teaching assistant of History and Italian at the University level. I’ve worked with a range of students from high-achieving undergraduates to students at pressure-cooker college preparatory schools to children with high-functioning Autism. My specialty subjects are History, English, Latin, essay-writing, exam preparation, and I have extensive experience preparing students for exam prep (PSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE to name a few) and university applications in the USA and the UK..."

Anne "I currently work as a math teacher in Brooklyn and would love the opportunity to work with you to help you to not only achieve your immediate goals (passing a class, test, etc), but also foster a deeper understanding of the subject matter that will help you into the future. I'm certified to teach grades 7-12 which means I possess a mastery of pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus, trigonometry, statistics and AP AB and BC Calculus. The liberal arts curriculum I took at Stanford University has ensured that I not only can tutor students in technical fields but also humanities. I'm a voracious reader, especially of historical non-fiction, so I would especially enjoy tutoring for history and English in addition to mathematics. I am a savvy test taker and would be able to teach your child not only the content necessary to excel at the SAT and other standardized tests, but also how to utilize strategies to maximize efficiency and accuracy. In teaching, I enjoy connecting the subject matter to topics that would not necessarily seem relevant to the lesson in order to engage the student on a deeper level..."

Theodore "...I have worked for three years as a writing tutor at the Brooklyn College Learning Center, but I have always been the sort of person who friends come to for help with their papers or with their English classes. I also, and I swear I'm not joking, have always enjoyed taking standardized tests and imparting my confidence and techniques in these tests to others. My tutoring technique almost always starts with a conversation with the student..."

Naomi "...I am all about making learning exciting and intuitive! During Stanford, I served as a mentor and tutor two times a week at the East Palo Alto Boys and Girls Club, and spent many Saturday mornings at a local high school co-coaching the tri-math-a-lon team to two-time national victory. In high school, I worked with my principal to launch MenTu, a mentoring and tutoring program for local elementary school students. Through one on one attention we were able to strengthen the students' math and English homework scores, meanwhile building positive and reinforcing relationships that strengthened their confidence..."

Katie "I am a Cornell Freshman studying Biomedical Engineering. With 2 years of paid and 5 years of volunteer tutoring under my belt, I have learned that patience, compassion, flexibility, and creativity are necessary to help a student succeed in a variety of subjects. Even more importantly, I'm confident that I can help students not just with one topic or class, but give them the skills to achieve high results on their own and in the future."
