Award-Winning SSAT Tutors in New York, NY
Katherine "... I went on to work for another, more individualized company as a lead academic tutor in test prep and multiple subjects. I was recruited by an online tutoring firm to write and perform their ACT prep video series. I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music..."
Melissa "... I’ve worked with a range of students from high-achieving undergraduates to students at pressure-cooker college preparatory schools to children with high-functioning Autism. My specialty subjects are History, English, Latin, essay-writing, exam preparation, and I have extensive experience preparing students for exam prep (PSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE to name a few) and university applications in the USA and the UK. I chose to go to graduate school and continue working in the field of education because I am passionate about both learning and teaching whether this takes place at home, in a classroom, or at an international conference..."

Howard "...An appearance on Who Wants to be a Millionaire has helped fuel student interest in knowing how one subject area affects another. I think this helps dispel the notion that math is all dry numbers and theory. My style in the classroom is very similar to my tutoring style. I listen, I observe, I plan accordingly..."
Elizabeth "I'm a Harvard graduate and a former high school science teacher with Teach for America. I'm in New York studying theater and voice but miss my science classes and students like crazy! I'm particularly strong in biology but also totally comfortable with chemistry, English and writing, social studies/history, and test prep. As a teacher my style is to help students discover the answers on their own, and become more confident in their ability to use critical thinking..."
Paisley "...With my 9 years of private tutoring experience, I also meet with clients all over New York City and Long Island, tutoring middle and high school students in Test Prep, Writing and Reading, and adults in English language. I believe in hard work and having fun while prepping for important tests. As a native New Yorker growing up here, I attended Hunter College High School and the Brearley School, so I know how important test prep is! Because of my experience as a teacher and student, I firmly believe that excelling at school not only leads to great academic opportunities, but also an essential sense of self-esteem and accomplishment..."
Laura "...For two years, as a Teach for America corps member, I taught 4th grade in both a General Education and in an ICT Setting. During this time, I completed my Master of Arts in Education from Relay Graduate School of Education, graduating with distinction. As a teacher, I led my students to achieve over a 70% pass rate on the rigorous Common Core ELA Assessment, and over a 90% pass rate on the Common Core Math Assessment..."
Daniel "...I believe that numbers and mathematics are all around us and a strong understanding of basic applications is an essential part of every student's education. I strive to create a friendly and light-hearted working environment where students are comfortable asking questions because, from my experience, it is more conducive to learning. I tutor a host of Mathematical subjects but also specialize in helping students through the academic writing process..."
Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College - BA, Statistics
Benjamin "...As a prospective law student, I have been through multiple levels of the standardized testing process and appreciate how difficult it is for students to overcome this obstacle in order to reach their goals. I take a great deal of pleasure in helping people through this process as a result and hope the experiences I impart can be of use to them. I am particularly passionate about aiding others in studying history and improving their writing skills; watching people find their own voice in their work is the key for the latter and invariably leads to improvements in the former..."
Matthew "...John’s University, located in Queens, NY. One attribute common to both the practice of a pharmacist and a tutor is that, at their core, both are about bridging the gap between what a patient (or student) knows, and what they need to know. This involves determining the best way to make the knowledge available to them..."
St. John's University - PharmD, Pharmacy
Wallis Elizabeth "...As a tutor at my University's writing center, I edited papers for a variety of subjects and worked with art majors to develop honors theses. I love brainstorming creative approaches to papers with students, and I may be one of the few recent graduates who still thinks grammar is exciting. My enthusiasm is contagious! I am a North Carolina native and an avid college basketball fan..."
