Award-Winning PSAT Tutors in New York, NY
Suleman "...However, without a proper understanding of the simple facets of a subject, the more complicated features can never be truly internalized. I have always enjoyed explaining concepts to other people, and I find it works best when I relate the subject to a personal interest of the student. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is watching a student attack a problem in a step-by-step manner and explain the significance of each step..."
Lexi "... I love helping students with reading, English language and literature, and writing – particularly around college applications, admissions essays, and SAT preparation. I have extensive experience tutoring foreign languages through my work as a Spanish & Arabic tutor at Princeton and through language exchanges completed while studying abroad in Mexico and Egypt (ages 18-30). I believe that learning a foreign language is hugely rewarding for students of all ages and welcome opportunities to tutor in Spanish or Arabic (or just to chat!) at all levels. I hope to work with you to develop the approach that works best for your learning style..."
Ava "I have tutored students from ages ranging from 8 to 18 years old. I am a history major and education minor. I enjoy tutoring help with a range of subjects (math, history, writing, ACT/SAT, English, science etc) because I love to learn and am passionate about teaching..."

Mallory "...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. When it comes to my students, I believe that his or her success is mine as well. I look forward to helping my students develop the skills that will ensure his or her success throughout college and beyond..."
Jordy "The central dichotomy of my life has always been that of academics and the performing arts; as I have spent the last six years since graduating from Columbia University in New York auditioning and performing, I have also found myself drawn to working with kids. I have worked as a nanny and tutored kids between the ages of three and seventeen, and I feel especially qualified to work with students on the writing and verbal sections of the SAT and editing their personal statements and college essays. As a high schooler, I was one of those students who LOVED standardized tests; I have always viewed them as an exciting way to measure progress and hone in on, not only academic skills, but also time management, organization, and maintaining a sense of personal calm. In fact, I love the entire college application process because I think of it not as an opaque, mysterious world of judgment behind closed doors, but as the first opportunity in a student’s life to find the perfect fit..."
Timothy "...I am studying in a Juris Doctorate program at Seton Hall University Law School. I currently live in New York. Tutoring has been an important part of my life since college, when I tutored and mentored K-8 students in Math and Literacy at urban Los Angeles elementary and middle schools..."
Alexis "...Johns University, working towards obtaining a Psy.D. in School Psychology. I graduated from Cornell University, where I studied Child Development. I absolutely love working with students of all ages..."
Elisha "...Over my undergraduate career I have tutored many different students ranging from grades 4-12 as well as several college classes. I have always loved being able to work with a student or colleague to find the right answer of a difficult question. I tutor math (Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Algebra) as well as SAT math, English, and science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Biochemistry)..."
Priyanka "...While I tutor many subjects, I have a particular passion for Math and Sciences seeing as those are the subjects I will continue to pursue in my own life. I have also had particular success in prepping students for test taking by using my extensive experience in this area to assist my students. I would describe my teaching style and philosophy as a development of mutual respect; I have come to understand that a student’s respect for learning is often a reflection of his or her teacher’s attitude toward the learning process..."
Carmen "...I tutor many different subjects and enjoy prepping for tests, especially the SAT, ACT, and GRE, but my personal passions are English and History. I particularly love helping students to craft strong (and grammatically sound) essays on any subject by working from a compelling thesis statement to a detailed outline to an excellent and convincing final paper. I'm a very patient tutor and love to use fun games to engage students while making sure that they understand the material rather than just memorizing..."
