Award-Winning Reading Tutors in New York, NY
Maddy "...Eventually, I hope to get my MFA in playwriting and/or my PhD in American Studies. In my free time, I love to cook and read novels. I design each tutoring session to meet student needs, but you always can expect a compassionate and humorous yet progress-driven approach from me..."
Michele "...I am an experienced tutor with over a decade of teaching, training, and tutoring. I tutor writing, listening comprehension, speaking skills, and grammar, as well as other subjects. Lessons from me will help you improve your communication skills, depth and breadth of English language, and gain confidence in using the English language..."
Warren "...I am confident that I can help students in the areas they are not as strong, but more importantly, I can help them build a new relationship and comfort level with the material. Generally, I enjoy tutoring in Math and English, specifically elementary and middle and high school, respectively. I have always found it rewarding to go back to my elementary school and help out with the after-care program which involved tutoring and playing with the kids until their parents or guardians arrived..."
Christopher "...I have taught at the middle school, high school, and college levels, and I have a proven record of success in helping students on a one-to-one basis achieve their goals. My teaching approach is very much tailored to each student's individual needs. I'll take the time to know you and what you want to learn before the tutoring begins, so as not to waste your time going over things you already know. I firmly believe that writing, reading, and test-taking are skills that can be learned by anyone and that personal, one-to-one instruction is the best way for students to go beyond what they are able to learn in school..."
Carmen "...I have tutored middle school children in English, Math, and Social Studies in the past, and while in college I often helped other students with their writing. 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..."
Jeremy "...In 2009, I received my Bachelor of Arts in English having also concentrated in 20th Century art history and Critical Theory, the History of Philosophy, and Buddhist Studies. I tutor literature, grammar, phonetics, essay writing, philosophy, art history, Spanish, and public speaking. I believe that education should foster the mutual development of student and teacher and that the best tools to cultivate such radical, coterminous growth are patience, attention to difference, and respect for detail..."

Alexandra "...Villa El Salvador taught me how to connect with students from a completely different linguistic and cultural background. Finally, Chapman University’s Center for Academic Success taught me how to expand my range from basic reading and writing skills to different areas of literature, essay construction and writing, and foreign languages, specifically German and Spanish. My strongest subjects include reading comprehension, phonics, grammar, essay construction and writing, German language (all levels) and Spanish language (through the intermediate level). Although it is difficult for me to choose a favorite, I would have to say essay construction and writing because I believe that a student's ability to express themselves intelligently and creatively is the foundation of a strong education as well as a successful career path..."
James "...In any case, the right combination of dedication and guidance from a tutor can help tremendously. I also believe that each student is different and their tutoring should be tailored to their strengths and weaknesses. That is why I approach each student individually and attempt to match the sessions to what will be most helpful for each student..."
Jenna "... As for tutoring style, I am all about understanding - both as an instructor, and as a student. I want to understand my student's abilities, struggles, and passions as best as I can, so that I can more effectively help them find themselves in their work and accomplish it to the best of their ability. My style revolves around verbal communication and problem-solving, and emphasizes these qualities in a team setting..."
Sarie "...Since graduation, I have been working at an Economics research firm in NYC where I am responsible for sales into various sectors (healthcare, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications). I have become very interested in healthcare, and I am now volunteering at a few hospitals in order to gain more exposure to the field. In the past, I tutored for the SAT examination in Reading, Writing, and Math..."
