Award-Winning SAT Tutors in New Jersey, NJ
Michael "...I especially enjoy challenging my students with college-level work, and strongly believe that with the right approach, nothing is too hard to understand. Writing is my favorite subject to tutor, because there is no endpoint, and anyone can always be a better writer. It is amazing to see some students discover their voice and personality through what they previously considered to be boring essay assignments..."
Peter "... My tutoring method is to cover the material the student will be working on, have them do some practice problems, and when they get to a point where they're getting a lot of them right have them take me through some problems while they explain the steps. I have learned over the years that the only way to know if you have mastered a subject is to see if you can teach it to someone else. If the student can explain the subject back to me sufficiently well then I know that we are ready to move on to new material..."
Jon "...I'm originally from the Jersey Shore area and went to a special math and science high-school for Ocean County students (also I was Math League captain and have been 2x Ocean County Math League champ). My specialties are in Chemistry and standardized test Math prep. I make sure to have a good time with all of my students and like to joke around while making sure we stay on track..."
Hilary "...I have student taught 9th grade English, and I have tutored many different middle and high school students. I am well versed in all aspects of the English curriculum. I believe that education should be stimulating and engaging. I am enthusiastic about teaching material in new and interesting ways..."

Meeraj "... Since then, I have expanded my repertoire of subjects to encompass virtually all of high school math (from algebra to calculus), essay writing (for school and college applications), & core sciences (physics, biology and chemistry) with great success. However, standardized test preparation - for the SAT, ACT, and GRE (all sections), SAT Subject Tests, & AP exams - remains my specialty. I myself have scored in the 99th percentile on both the SAT & the GRE..."
Theresa "...It is not enough for the student simply to be presented with information about language, whether English or Latin. Most students benefit more from assistance in approaching the material and through the development of study skills such as learning the material in different ways or recognizing the root of the confusion. Therefore, I believe that a tutor should guide the student through the material to a point of comfort and understanding..."
Wenjie "...Now I am going back to graduate school for Computer Science. I worked for "Say Yes to Education" for a year to help urban high school students to prepare for the SAT test and New York State regents in the Syracuse area. Helping students to work out questions with efficient methods instead of feeding them answers is my teaching strategy..."
Peter "I am currently a junior at Rutgers and am working toward completing a Physics/Geological Sciences double major. Also, this year I began taking Civil Engineering courses because I plan on pursuing a graduate degree in geotechnical engineering. Since my junior year of high school I've been tutoring math and physics at highschool, AP, and college levels..."
Gita "...I frequently interacted with zoo guests as I collected my data and enjoyed teaching them about ape behavior, care, and conservation. Most recently, I took on students in my hometown of West Windsor, NJ as I prepared my Master's thesis for publication in a scientific journal. Motivating the next generation to be enthusiastic scholars and engaged citizens is one of my primary goals. I am particularly adept at communicating complex ideas, and I am eager to share this skill with younger students..."
