Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT tutors in Yonkers, NY
"Vernon, NY. From these two disparate experiences I learned that teaching the most inquisitive pupil and teaching the most reluctant student can be equally challenging and rewarding. I take great joy in helping my students, and I believe that understanding and a positive rapport are the keys to a successful teaching relationship. I get to know my students both in terms of their level of academic ability and motivation as well as what styles of education serve them best."

"I have always enjoyed explaining concepts to other people, and find it works best when I relate the subject to a personal interest of the student. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is watching a student attack a problem in a step-by-step manner and explain the significance of each step. Starting from the bottom-up is an approach I have applied through my academic journey, and hope to impart on others as well.."

" Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT. My teaching style is highly customized to the student(s) I'm working with: my main goal is always to make him or her feel as comfortable as possible. But beyond that--unless we're quickly nearing a standardized test date and fundamental understanding is temporarily less of a priority than scoring well--I always make sure that students really comprehend the topics they're dealing with and not just "going through the ...

" Ever since I have been tutoring Math, Chemistry and standardized tests. Tutoring is a pleasure to me, I particularly enjoy helping students reach that 'aha' moment, where they gain an insight into a particular concept. As of January 2012 I have tutored more than 20 students for a total of nearly 500 hours. In the future I will be attending graduate school in Chemistry, and will later continue as an educator, hopefully on the university level.."

"My philosophy toward tutoring is unique. Students have individual needs and styles of learning. What keeps a student from achieving their potential is that many individuals put a tremendous amount of stress on learning isolated facts, or do not have the correct study skill sets for their style of learning. By reducing the stress and taking a more relaxed and holistic approach, students of all ages have the ability to accomplish their goals."

"My teaching approach is very much tailored to students' 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. My tutoring is worth the investment!."

"I'm a graduate of Macalester College, class of 2008, with BAs in Japanese and linguistics. While languages and language itself are my first love, I enjoy working in a variety of other subjects as well. As a student and a teacher, I prefer working from the fundamentals to memorizing facts; I feel that understanding how and why something works is a more interesting and effective method, and helps nurture critical thinking, an essential life skill. I look forward to helping students work towards reaching their full potential. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!." ...

" My work with various educational non-profits has allowed me to engage students from a range of backgrounds. I began tutoring my first semester at college with middle school. As I helped them with their homework and test prep for high school, I developed a teaching style that promoted good study skills for my students to use beyond our tutoring sessions. For the past three years, I have worked extensively with students in SAT preparation and the college application process as a whole."
