Award-Winning SAT Tutors in New York, NY
Jill "...I originally started college as a pre-medical student, but then switched to a Psychology major, with a Biology and Chemistry double minor after I decided Medical school just wasn't for me. My plan for he future is still undecided, however I'm leaning towards pursuing a higher degree in Genetics. I loved school when I was growing up, and science and math classes were my favorite subjects because they made the most sense to me, but I understand that they can become very challenging very fast. My past tutoring experience involved mostly mathematics tutoring in subjects such as geometry and algebra, but I feel just as confident in my knowledge about the science courses to be equally helpful. As a tutor, I like to get to the core of the problem that my students are having with their respective subjects..."
Laura "...My own educational experience has had a formative impact on my style as a tutor. I attended a Montessori school from pre-school through 8th grade, and was heavily influenced by the focus on independent learning, discovery, and exploration as a way to develop a more thorough and better understanding of academic subjects. I am passionate about making sure that students enjoy what they are learning, and I try to individualize tutor sessions to match the specific needs of each student..."
Yan Liang "I am currently working as a Structural Engineer in New York City. I have a very strong background in Math and Physics and obtained a perfect math score in my college and graduate school entrance exams. The best part of teaching for me is watching a student slowly grasp and understand a subject that once was very foreign to them.."

Caitlin "...In my previous tutoring experience, I've worked with students of ages ranging from 10 to 18. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, my favorite to teach are Math, Chemistry, Physics, and Test Prep, because they provide the greatest problem solving challenges. I enjoy working through difficult problems with students, because I believe that with the right guidance, they are universally capable of rising to the challenge..."
Arshya "...I love the language and the culture, but understand the complexity and nuances of this beautiful language. Let's work on appreciating it together. If I can be of assistance in your mission to improve this subject, please do not hesitate to let me know. I would love to see if we can work out a compatible schedule..."
Melissa "... I am originally from New York City and attended a very academically oriented private school, so I have first-hand experience with the stresses and concerns many students face, regardless of the school they attend. I benefited from private tuition myself and would like to consider my story a successful one, therefore I hope to carry on the benefits of tutoring to my own students. I have 7 years experience private tutoring a diverse range of subjects in New York and London, and 6 years experience as a teaching assistant of History and Italian at the University level. I’ve worked with a range of students from high-achieving undergraduates to students at pressure-cooker college preparatory schools to children with high-functioning Autism..."

William "...In my personal experience, students claim the physical sciences can be intimidating and difficult at first glance. However, after students develop a personal connection to their method and the underlying theory, it quickly becomes second nature to them. My goal as a tutor is to help students of all ages forge their method of analytic thinking for a higher quality of life and academic success..."
