Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Test prep tutors in Glen Cove, NY
"I can help students with essays, personal statements, applications, grammar, verbal and writing standardized tests, and Italian grammar and conversation. As a tutor, I’ve learned how to adapt to different learning styles and individuals. I personalize my tutoring sessions by listening to what students want help with, gauging their needs based on their writing or language ability, and understanding their teachers’ (or exams’) expectations. When I tutor, I enjoy being able to teach students as I assist them with their writing and language." ...

" In addition, since high school, I have always been someone that friends entrust to look over and critique their papers before they submit final drafts. My teaching style features visual learning, mnemonics, and hierarchical organization of material. I find that hierarchically cataloguing information by topic and sub-topic helps students retain material, as students are not simply memorizing, but are understanding how concepts relate to one another. More personally, my hobbies include tennis, movies, and travel."
