Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SSAT tutors in Hempstead, NY
" I also work with students in history and general homework help. I am a published writer, with articles in national and local publications and Yahoo! Finance. I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone. I maintain flexibility and adjust my methodologies for each student that I work with." ...

" In recent years, I've focused on tutoring high school math and science. I also work with students on Spanish, ISEE, SSAT, SAT Prep, and collegiate level courses. As a chemical engineering student at UPenn, I learned the importance of having a great tutor firsthand. Some of my professors were not that interested or particularly talented at teaching the material, so I turned to the TAs, who were graduate students in my major. They were incredibly helpful and provided a fresh perspective with keen insight that I couldn't have gained from simply reading the textbook." ...

These students all ended the class with A's. On another note, as a future ...

"I have been a private tutor for the last 10 years now in Math (through Pre-Calculus), Literature (American, British, grammar), SAT I (Math, Verbal, Writing), and SAT II (Math I and II, Literature). Before moving to New York, I ran a private tutoring company based out of Rhode Island where I created curricula for various standardized exams (ISEE, SSAT, SAT I and II, ACT, MAT, GRE); I also offered college admissions guidance. I believe that the most important part of any tutor-student relationship is the ability for each to relate to the other; the tutor must be able to relate to the student relevant information that makes the material ...
