Award-Winning Latin Tutors in New York, NY
Mallory "...During my time at Yale, I studied Classics and Humanities, served on the Executive Board of the Yale Dramatic Association, and travelled throughout Italy and Greece on a research fellowship. As a tutor, I am committed to helping my students reach their full academic potential. When it comes to test prep, I work carefully with my students to design a personalized program of study that takes advantage of their strengths and addresses their weaknesses, so that on test day they’ll earn their highest possible score. Outside of the SAT/ACT, my areas of strength are in reading, writing, language (Latin), and history. I believe that learning is an inherently enjoyable experience, and while I demand a lot of my students, I make sure that my tutoring sessions are engaging and fun..."
Melissa "... I am originally from New York City and attended a very academically oriented private school, so I have first-hand experience with the stresses and concerns many students face, regardless of the school they attend. 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..."

Ashley "...I have also been a teaching assistant for two different statistical analysis courses at Wesleyan University in which I held office hours and lectures to help students with their comprehension of the course material. My methods for teaching reading and writing involve integrating fun, exciting techniques that engage the student in the material. By involving different methods of approaching the material, the student will be exposed to the material in different ways, allowing him or her to become interested in the subjects. Though I have mastered the topics I am comfortable tutoring, I treat each tutoring session as a learning process in which the student and I learn the material together as a team..."
Nathaniel "...Currently I am working towards a JD at NYU's School of Law. Starting in college, I tutored students in economics and statistics, and also work with clients on subject test areas for the Advanced Placement exams, as well as standardized test preparation such as for the SAT I and II, GRE and LSAT. I especially enjoy helping students prepare for standardized tests because I remember how helpful a compelling guide and mentor can be during the often stressful process of testing and preparation for it..."
Nathan "... I am also an alumnus of the Washington and Lee School of Law, where I further honed my critical thinking and writing skills in pursuit of my JD. In Washington and Lee’s highly competitive Moot Court Competition, I put these skills to good use, receiving the contest’s prestigious award for Best Brief. Today I am sharing the fruits of my exceptional education with students in the city..."
Kate "...Each of us has a different way in which we learn best and no way is better than another! As far as my interests outside of academia, I have a true passion for theatre. My performance experience helps me to be an outgoing and enthusiastic instructor who excels at both strictly organized lectures and more improvisational lessons. I have held numerous positions in arts non-profits in both Boston and D.C., as I love having jobs that support the community and promote creativity..."
Angela "...One of the best ways to foster learning is to demonstrate those feelings to my students. I encourage learning by creating a relaxed environment for students, stimulating conversation about concepts being presented and organizing material in a way that makes it easiest to understand. I treat subject matter as interconnected, emphasizing that everything students are learning fits together into a holistic understanding of the world, from which they develop their personal worldview..."

Alexander "I graduated last spring from Amherst College and moved to New York City after graduation to found a startup company. I have taught in France, Africa, and in Boston, and I am especially passionate about language tutoring (French, Latin), although I also love teaching math, writing, and helping students through the college admissions process (including SAT prep). I have a critical-thinking-focused approach to teaching; that is, I focus on helping my students understand the concepts and frameworks underlying their most difficult assignments, and I try to improve their study habits and problem solving strategies..."
James "... During my lessons, I effectively collaborate with my students to discover their learning tendencies and habits so that they can quickly develop a strong understanding of the subject based on their strengths. My lessons are filled with discussion and dialogue in order that my students do not become bored with the material, but remain engaged and do not feel like they are being lectured. My goal in tutoring is to ensure that my students become motivated to constantly improve themselves; in doing so, they will develop a lifelong love of learning and a drive to succeed in any aspect of life. Aside from teaching, I am an avid sports fan, particularly of football, baseball, soccer, and golf..."
Rebecca "...This could be as elemental as applying their interests to whatever it is they are studying, be it finding literary bits about ancient sport to practice Latin grammar or envisioning the perfect essay in relation to a perfect layer cake. My students have ranged from the pre-K to university levels. For each student, I put a strong emphasis on personalizing their studies to their needs and interests..."
