Frederick "... The moment that the information I'm teaching clicks in a student's head is a proud one, and it's hard to match that satisfaction. That's what drives me to be a great teacher. New York is my favorite place in the world and I'd love to live here the rest of my life. In my free time you'll find me playing guitar or attempting to teach myself a new instrument - I'm up to 5!

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.

At the end of the day, testing is about logic and reasoning and developing tools to help under pressure is crucial..."
