Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Test prep tutors in New Jersey
" When I tutor, I feel that I am able to empathize with my student’s frustrations and this establishes a bond of trust. From there, I am able to motivate my students to do their homework with a new positive attitude. Of course discipline is also of the utmost importance, as I sometimes have to become a taskmaster and gently prod my students to stay focused and explore their work from a vantage point of curiosity rather than boredom, which I have found to be the best strategy to get them interested in their work.."

"I was also the managing editor of the student newspaper, where I trained first-year students in hands-on editing for style, content, and factual accuracy. Currently, I'm gearing up to apply for graduate programs in sociology. I emphasize that a student always has the tools to succeed and improve right in front of him or her--it's simply a matter of knowing how to use those tools.

" I enjoy words, word games, reading, mathematics, discovering new things, staying in shape, and sharing what I have learned with others. I am a fan of classic television sit-coms, music from various genres, and my often-hapless yet always-loved New York Mets.

These include working for the Dept."

"I have also taught test preparation and ESL. This background enables me to provide instructive, substantive lessons, and to understand and draw upon each student's needs and potentialities, to unlock his or her academic potential. In addition to subject knowledge, effective self-expression (written and oral), and reasoned analysis of well-chosen evidence, I also encourage students to develop a genuine interest in the subject, by showing them how historical study may touch on today's most pressing issues, and on their own personal lives. The skills gained along the way--expository writing, public speaking, and critical ...

"I believe strongly that anyone who learns the structure, nuances, focuses, and limits of the SAT can not only improve their score but earn perfect scores like I did on the creative reading and writing multiple-choice sections. Students spend hours on regular coursework that prepares them for the SAT but very little time studying the actual test, which is surprisingly predictable and limited in scope. Many of these principles also apply to the ISEE, PSAT, and Iowa Test of Basic Skills. I have taught violin to five students over a span of three years and studied violin at the Albania Academy of Arts. In Albania I taught English and served as a ...

" I took early retirement from teaching, but then I really missed the student/teacher interaction. I enjoy my students, so I don't mind going the extra mile for one.
