Award-Winning SAT Math Tutors in New York, NY
Alexandra "I'm a recent New York transplant from the wilds of suburban New Jersey. I moved to the city this summer after finishing a Master's Degree in Near Eastern Studies at Princeton, where I also did volunteer work as an English composition teacher. I started teaching and tutoring eight years ago as an assistant Arabic teacher at a language camp, and I've been working in education and/or academia ever since! I especially love teaching writing, reading skills, and foreign languages: I'm a believer in the power of clear and thoughtful communication..."
Alexander "...Each child has a different relationship with language, and improving that relationship is impossible without first understanding it. English isn’t just a subject taught in school; it’s how we access the people and ideas around us. As a tutor, my goal is not only to prepare students for the tests and essays that will be used to evaluate them, but also to give them the skills they need to prosper as members of an English-speaking society..."
Shannon "... Though I received a BA in English, I excelled both in Math and Literature throughout grammar, high school, and higher learning. I tutor subjects ranging from social sciences, language arts, earth science, environmental science, algebra, elementary math, geometry, and more. I have helped students with school homework, Kumon homework, as well as preparing for the private school entrance exam. I love to read and write, but aside from that enjoy a variety of hobbies..."
Nicholas "...My goal is to find that way, and through understanding why my student is having difficulties, convey the lessons in simple and satisfying means. I am not an impersonal tutor. I want to become friends with every person I teach. Through experience I've found that this significantly enhances the success of teaching anything..."
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..."
Emily "...During this same year I provided tutoring in French 221 to five student athletes. I worked with them four nights a week to review lessons, answer homework questions, and prepare for upcoming exams. In addition to my experience tutoring and teaching French, I have also served as a volunteer English as a Second Language teacher to adult immigrants in Richmond, VA..."
Christina "... Math is about problem solving, puzzles and thinking outside the box. By presenting problems within their skillset but slightly beyond their experience, it allows for the imaginary side of math to emerge while preparing them to approach a new problem with confidence. As the Math Department Head of my school, I have an intricate understanding of math standards for 6th- 12th grade, as well as the new Common Core Standards being piloted through NYC this year. This knowledge paired with my classroom understanding has been key to not only preparing my students for their current grade but really hone in what knowledge they will really need for the next sequential math classes..."

Myles "... History and Literature are two of my greatest passions, subjects I studied at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro. Though these subjects can at times be difficult to engage with, I am confident that together we can uncover new perspectives and learning strategies that will reinvigorate your relationship to the material and improve your grades dramatically. Sometimes all that is necessary for an academic breakthrough is seeing old material from a new vantage point! I know the importance of developing a strong and functional rapport with students..."
Anya "...I also studied American History, Calculus, and Astronomy extensively. My areas of tutoring expertise include SAT test prep in all three sections (math, writing, and critical reading), PSAT test prep, US History, high school Algebra, Public Speaking, and Essay Writing. I particularly enjoy helping students hone their writing skills, guiding them to uncover a more personalized style within a cohesive and effective structure..."
