Award-Winning ISEE Tutors in New York, NY
Kevin "...It goes without saying that in order to excel in these exams, the student must possess a solid foundation in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. But first and foremost, it is important that each student identifies the reason that he or she is studying for. Once that goal is vividly envisioned by the student, he or she will find enjoyment and satisfaction in understanding and applying new concepts as the student progresses towards his or her goal one step at a time..."
Rod "... Furthermore, over the years I was also able to mentor individuals from different backgrounds and ages; i.e. classmates, referrals and colleagues helping them achieve their objectives. I always found it rewarding to see faces shine during Aha moments of understanding and eventually see many of them improve their scores/performance..."
Clio "...It's so satisfying to determine what 'x' equals instead of arguing endlessly controversial topics; I love doing both. Outside of the classroom, I love to dance both ballet, modern, and to whatever songs my roommates and I play. I religiously drink tea, and go running and swimming to exercise..."
Lee "...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..."
Michael "...Consequently, I believe that I am perceived as a knowledgeable peer instead of a pedantic instructor.

Julia "...I followed a traditional four-year degree that involved one year of practicum teaching, as well as another year of student teaching. During my time in college, I also worked as a tutor to a third grade student struggling with math, as well as a second grade ESL student. I am passionate about teaching in a way that students need to learn - in other words, working to their strengths in order to best suit their learning styles..."
Nicole "... My favorite subject to teach is Reading, specifically Phonics. I feel giving the right instruction will provide the proper foundation for students learning to read. I am a highly enthusiastic, devoted and creative individual..."
Kevin "...I think I excel at giving students new ways to think about certain problems which may give them a better understanding of the material. I don't feel like it has been a productive session unless I come away having learned something as well. In my spare time, I am an avid sports fan and a seasoned fantasy sports player..."
Varsha "...I believe in individualized lesson plans for each student. Using the student's learning style (and strengths) can help us work on the weaknesses. I have worked with elementary-school children in classroom settings, for both non-profit organizations and schools..."
