A photo of Jordan who is one of our SAT Writing tutors in New York City, NY
"The central dichotomy of my life has always been that of academics and the performing arts; as I have spent the last six years since graduating from Columbia University in New York auditioning and performing, I have also found myself drawn to working with kids. I have worked as a nanny and tutored kids between the ages of three and seventeen, and I feel especially qualified to work with students on the writing and verbal sections of the SAT and editing their personal statements and college essays. As a high schooler, I was one of those students who LOVED standardized tests; I have always viewed them as an exciting way to measure progress and hone in on, not only academic skills, but also time management, organization, and maintaining a sense of personal calm. In fact, I love the entire college application process because I think of it not as an opaque, mysterious world of judgment behind closed doors, but as the first opportunity in a student’s life to find the perfect fit..."

A photo of Miranda who is one of our SAT Writing tutors in New York City, NY
"After graduating from a public high school in Minneapolis, I headed east, thinking I would get a Bachelor's degree in mathematics at Harvard. Once I got to Harvard, though, I discovered linguistics - the math of language. So I ended up majoring in linguistics, studying abroad in Paris, and writing an honors thesis on a type of French slang called "Verlan." During college and long before, I also spent a large amount of my time making movies, and for me, that mostly meant editing video, a skill I've been teaching students for years..."

A photo of Anna who is one of our SAT Writing tutors in New York City, NY
"I graduated from Brown with a degree in History and took a wide variety of courses during my time as an undergraduate – from Russian literature to Buddhist philosophy to modern dance. I thoroughly enjoy the process of helping students improve their performance in the classroom and on standardized tests. My goal is to help students develop a passion, or at least an interest, in subject areas they may have learned to dislike or fear. I build students' confidence by helping them understand the connection between areas of study that challenge them, and other subjects they may already feel comfortable with. I believe that writing, reading and analysis are not innate abilities, but rather skills that each student must work to develop..."

A photo of Stephanie who is one of our SAT Writing tutors in New York City, NY
"...In these positions, I have helped to provide free tutoring to grade schoolers working on their homework and developing literacy skills, high school students preparing for the Regents and the SATs, and working young people studying to obtain their GEDs. As an individual who still holds fond memories of the talented teachers who influenced my learning and career goals, I have found my time spent as a tutor to be an invaluable and incredibly fulfilling experience. I believe that the children and families with whom I have worked would describe me as a patient, creative, and dedicated instructor, one who endeavors to narrowly tailor her teaching methods to suit the needs of each individual student..."

"...However, it will always take a lot of hard work, concentration, and practice. It might be a tough journey, but I promise to make it worth the while and a fun experience. I bring more to the table than just having a solid educational background - my biggest strength is the investment that I will make in a student, to make sure that they succeed.

A photo of Sima who is one of our SAT Writing tutors in New York City, NY
"I have a BA in Anthropology from Barnard College and a MS in Epidemiology from the University of Massachusetts, and I am currently doing cancer research at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. As a student I was never been able to decide on a favorite subject because I felt anything I studied in school could be fun and much easier if approached with the right attitude. Instead of boring memorization, I like to look for patterns and think of creative approaches to study subjects that can otherwise be very frustrating..."

"...Formally, I have also been trained as an SAT tutor and taught classes for over two years. I believe my balance of interest in English and quantitative subjects allows me to be flexible in my tutoring style. Growing up, I was always concerned about both my basic math and English skills - I was naturally "weaker" in math and English was my second language..."
