Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT Writing tutors in Hempstead, NY
" As a writer, I especially enjoy working on essays--brainstorming, reorganizing, and helping with stylistic and grammar-related line edits. I have worked two years for Hernandez College Consulting, where I've tutored incoming seniors on how to best apply for college. I also teach SAT and SAT II prep classes in Manhattan, where I focus on vocabulary strengthening, language rules, and test taking abilities. My approach to tutoring is very student-based: I like to get to know my student, and I adapt my teaching methods to best suit his or her abilities." ...

"I believe strongly that anyone who learns the structure, nuances, focuses, and limits of the SAT can not only improve their score but earn perfect scores like I did on the creative reading and writing multiple-choice sections. Students spend hours on regular coursework that prepares them for the SAT but very little time studying the actual test, which is surprisingly predictable and limited in scope. Many of these principles also apply to the ISEE, PSAT, and Iowa Test of Basic Skills. I have taught violin to five students over a span of three years and studied violin at the Albania Academy of Arts. In Albania I taught English and served as a ...

"The result was a chorus of engaged, knowledgable singers equipped with the tools for a future as a music lover and maker. I have experience in both Math/Science and the Humanities. At Yale, I studied Philosophy of Science, focusing on the intersection of physics and philosophy (my senior essay explored the knowability of the direction of time, and incorporated findings from wave-physics), and took numerous courses in literature and writing. But perhaps most of all, what makes me a great tutor is my sheer love of teaching."

"I also spent a semester in Spain, taking all classes in Spanish at a Spanish university. After graduation, I went to Africa for six months. I spent three months in Tanzania teaching English and three months in Mozambique working as a research assistant at a health clinic. My international teaching experience helped me become a more creative teacher because I often had to improvise on the spot when my students didn't understand me, which happens quite a lot when you and your students don't speak the same language."

"Through discussion and analysis of the core theme, the student begins to identify the writer’s style, the mood of the scene, grammar, structure and expanded vocabulary. I utilize writing prompts to guide the student to reflect upon the passage, engage in further research on the internet and write a two page essay for the next class. Through reading the assignment aloud, the student author takes ownership of his or her work. I provide feedback on style, grammar and structure, use of vocabulary and overall effectiveness in how the student has communicated the idea to the reader." ...

" 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."
