Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Reading tutors in Hicksville, NY
" I enjoy helping children and teenagers to feel more confident in themselves as learners because I know this to significantly impact on their engagement in school and feelings about themselves outside of the classroom. I avoid a one-size fits all approach to tutoring because I know that children have distinct learning styles. Thus, I seek to understand my students' strengths and motivations in order to capitalize on both in our work together. ."

"As a graduate of Stuyvesant High School and Honors College at City University, I can comfortably claim years of knowledge and expertise in these fields-- knowledge that I would love to share with you in your mission to reach, or even exceed, your expectations. My approach to tutoring is strictly peer-to-peer, so fear not being lectured or told what to do. However, I will push you to realize your full potential, and once that train starts rolling, there will be no stopping you!."

" A straight-A high school student, I was always asked to help my brother with his studies, which didn't come as easily to him. When I was a peer tutor at Harvard University, I discovered how enjoyable and rewarding it was to help other people understand our school's Freshman computer requirement and how I could use my knowledge, skills and tricks to help them break down and overcome a daunting goal. I was an officer in the U.S. Navy, where I learned to lead and teach people from all walks of life, and also saw first-hand how adding inspiration and encouragement helped our whole team do better, and feel better about it." ...

"Sciences are my strong point but I have always been involved with athletics playing varsity ice hockey throughout university.
