Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT Verbal tutors
"I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from NYU-Poly, but I spend most of my free time either inside reading or outside gardening and running. When I am not busy with school or leisure, I will be helping you or your child grasp a difficult subject or improve a test score. I encourage my students to talk me through their thought process when tackling a problem so that I can pinpoint exactly what is preventing them from arriving at the right solution..."

"...My method consists of asking students the right questions so that the students can figure out the problems themselves. I model the best ways of thinking so students learn how to ask themselves the right questions when I am no longer by their side. I seldom have students rely on "tricks"; instead, students will learn the underlying reasoning so that they can extend their solving methods to new related problem types..."

"...Since then, I've enjoyed helping students learn in a number of different environments: from teaching the GED to service-work union members in Center City, to serving an at-risk population with English support in North Philadelphia.

"One of my mentor teachers was fond of saying, "Teach the child, not the subject", meaning that the student comes first - before the curriculum, before the test scores, before the tutor. I've learned to incorporate this ideology into my own teaching practice by differentiating instruction for each of my students. I develop a rapport, meet students where they're at, and teach them the literacy and problem solving skills they need to become life-long learners. Once a student knows how to learn, whole new worlds open for them and the actual material is a matter of course.."

"... Having a passion for the sciences, I worked in various research positions from studying endangered desert tortoises in the Mojave Desert to studying the population genetics of ornamental fishes of the Amazon. I realized I missed the human connection and pursued medical school at the University of Connecticut; where I've found medicine combines both my love of science and helping others. Throughout my research and training in the past nine years, I have tutored students on how to master standardized tests, and helping students achieve their maximum potential to get into the school of their dreams has been an incredibly rewarding experience..."
