Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT tutors in Great Neck, NY
" I have helped students study for tests, quizzes, college entrance exams, SAT an ACT tests, SAT subject tests, and AP exams. I specialize in Math and Science subjects because I am one of those weird people that enjoy those subjects very much! My favorite part of tutoring is getting to know my students and their families. I also enjoy seeing the satisfied look on my students faces when they realize that they have the ability to understand difficult concepts and answer complex problems.."

"I taught a writing course at NYU, and then moved on to work as a managing editor at an e-learning company that produced an online seminar for Harvard and Yale, which was the most requested class in its debut year. I'm now transitioning into teaching, based on my experience at NYU and The Floating University. It's a great job, as it allows me to make a difference in the lives of students while also granting me the freedom to pursue fiction writing. In my free time I am generally reading, writing, watching movies, playing games, or hitting the gym. I am political policy nerd and enjoy reading about economics and science.." ...

" After living abroad in Istanbul, Turkey, I returned to the United States in 2010 and found employment at the Fine Arts Conservation Studio, in Chelsea, New York. In the Fall of 2010, I applied to various Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Programs, and was accepted to Columbia University where I began study in January, 2011. I anticipate completion of the program in May 2013, hoping to begin medical school in the Fall of 2014. While undertaking the program at Columbia, I had various tutoring experiences, beginning with a volunteer tutoring position at Page Turners in midtown, Manhattan." ...

"I am all about making learning exciting and intuitive! During Stanford, I served as a mentor and tutor two times a week at the East Palo Alto Boys and Girls Club, and spent many Saturday mornings at a local high school co-coaching the tri-math-a-lon team to two-time national victory. In high school, I worked with my principal to launch MenTu, a mentoring and tutoring program for local elementary school students. Through one on one attention we were able to strengthen the students' math and English homework scores, meanwhile building positive and reinforcing relationships that strengthened their confidence. Subsequently, I was ...

"My mother is a Spanish teacher, so I've been speaking it for most of my life. I love to make Spanish a fun and accessible skill for students while also explaining difficult grammar concepts in a way that clicks for them. I lived in Madrid for a year and have been able to travel to several other Spanish-speaking countries, and I hope to encourage a love of language as a means of connecting to other cultures. As a high schooler, I struggled with the time and attention necessary for the ACT and SAT, but was able to devise personal strategies that led me to high scores." ...

"I believe that students need to learn how to ask the right questions so that they can navigate the increasingly sophisticated world around them. This belief informs my teaching style; I act as a guide for students rather than someone dispensing information. Nothing is more enjoyable than the look on a student's face when he or she has just realized that he or she can solve a problem without anyone's help. When I'm not tutoring, I love walking through New York for design inspiration and taking carpentry, metalworking, and illustration classes.." ...

"I am currently living in Manhattan, where I am an intern at the Huffington Post. In my spare time I love to walk around the city, check out concerts, write poetry, and try new foods. I have worked in private tutoring for almost four years with a special focus on critical reading and writing skills and college application essays. My teaching style is laid-back and creative: I work hard to frame the material in a way that is interesting to my students and appeals to their interests, and I base my methods around what works best for them." ...

" 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. Since then, I've worked primarily as an entertainer, but I have remained a tutor, as well, bringing the empathy and humor that make me a successful ...

"I found that the presence of the language barrier made it all the more essential to be able to break down what was being taught into the most easily understandable and digestible form. It also taught me to be able to explain concepts in many different ways. Before that, I tutored several different students in math and science at both the middle and high school levels. Personally, I get a great deal of satisfaction out of finally grasping difficult mathematical concepts, and I love helping those who aren't quite as intuitive math students feel that as well. I look forward to helping your child succeed!." ...
