Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Test prep tutors in Great Neck, NY
"I want the student to be able to teach their way through solving a problem so they can apply the fundamentals in other places. Working with students one-on-one is great because I get a chance to see what they’re curious and passionate about, and how they personally value the subjects in which they are struggling. A student's motivation is sparked by a connection to their goals and interests, and the confidence that comes with approaching a subject from that inspired perspective leads to real success. I love seeing those breakthrough moments, and I’m proud of being able to help students improve in a wide range of subjects.." ...

"Over the course of the year, to see the transformation a student undergoes as he/she gains the confidence to take up the challenge of the subject matter is very inspiring. I enjoy being part of this process, and watching how the empowerment the student develops translates into empowerment in other facets of his/her studies and life. I place high value on addressing each student's individual learning style and personality. With all my students I "Meet Them Where They Are," and together we move forward in the process, taking material that was once overwhelming and turning it into an engaging discovery.." ...

"One of my mentor teachers was fond of saying, "Teach the child, not the subject", meaning that the student comes first - before the curriculum, before the test scores, before the tutor. I've learned to incorporate this ideology into my own teaching practice by differentiating instruction for each of my students. I develop a rapport, meet students where they're at, and teach them the literacy and problem solving skills they need to become life-long learners. Once a student knows how to learn, whole new worlds open for them and the actual material is a matter of course.." ...

"Positive behavior support is at the foundation for all of my lessons. I feel that the students deserve to know when they are mastering a skill as well as praise for giving it a try. When looking for a solution to a problem from my students I find there is no wrong answer, only steps forward to learning something new. Finally, I believe the atmosphere between the children and teacher should be light-hearted with structure having an air of safety to blanket the class.."

"In my experience, once students are curious and engaged, teaching is much more effective and enjoyable. I have found this to be successful in lecture, laboratory, and individual tutoring settings.

"While at Columbia Law, I was fortunate enough to work for the Office of General Counsel at the Getty Museum, where I was able to combine my passions for art, international relations, and law.

" I like teaching languages because I also enjoy learning them! In addition to English, I speak Russian, French, Chinese, and Spanish. I know that sometimes grammar or pronunciation can be difficult for students, but having worked with many different students of different levels over the years, I know how to explain language concepts and help students improve both their language level and study skills. I have also corrected hundreds of papers over the years. This has given me a knack for helping students improve their writing, whether they are a non-native speaker whose English is not so good or a graduate student who wants to clarify a ...

" With my experience, drive, intelligence and level of commitment, I feel that I would be a great choice of a tutor. My experience and success as a private tutor make me a credible candidate. From September 2009 – Present, I worked as a private tutor for High School Chemistry, Math, and College Chemistry. During this time, I worked to help all of my students pass the regents and raise their grades. I commuted to both Nassau and Suffolk homes to accommodate my students."
