Carefully selected, highly-credentialed tutors in Larchmont, NY
"As a qualified and certified tutor, I constantly aspire to help my students understand the logic, and content of the subject matter, while also being able to comprehend the complexity of the subject matter. Most importantly, I am passionate about helping my students succeed in any way that I can. I begin every tutoring session by gaining an understanding of the current knowledge of the student, and gradually building on that knowledge. In this process, I present information in an organized manner, with lesson plans, as well as suggested reading material and other assignments, as needed. I also offer test preparation tutoring, mostly ...

" Learning is a active process and a successful teacher encourages his or her student to not only answer the question immediately in front of them, but to identify the elements in the process which will produce positive results over and over again. Over the past twelve years I have prepared students for ACT, SAT, and SHSAT exams as well as middle and high school math. I have seen many students hit walls when they are studying, but in a one-on-one setting I am given the opportunity to create a tutoring plan that is tailored around the student’s strengths, weaknesses, and learning style. My goal is to engage students and have them stay motivated by ...

"My goal in becoming a tutor is that I might be able to inspire that same passion in children and young adults, a passion that might result in better grades of course, but more importantly a better understanding of our world, themselves and their potential. It is not always easy to be enthusiastic about grammatical errors, or who won a war 400 years ago, but by linking elements of a given curriculum with how and why we live as we do today, studying becomes discovering. I am excited about helping your child start discovering his or her world, and making sure the facts don't just stick but turn into the tools they use to shape their character. I have ...

"While they are learning the concepts, they are simultaneously feeling increased confidence and empowerment. During my tutoring career I have worked with a diverse group of students, each with their own set of challenges. Patience and the development of a rapport with the students have enabled them to overcome these hurdles. The improvement in scores that these students obtain is a motivator to them and a great sense of reward to me personally. ."

" I've also helped students with essay writing and proofreading because of the rigorous reading and writing that was part of my curriculum in the Honors Program. It's hard to say which I enjoy more-- literature or science. I enjoy exploring methods of learning that work best with the student and really value their feedback on my tutoring style. I like to be approachable during tutoring sessions so that the student can feel comfortable enough to bring up any questions he/she might have or interject if I am unclear. I don't like to lecture during tutoring sessions- I prefer sessions that are interactive and allow me to glean the student's ...

"In any case, the right combination of dedication and guidance from a tutor can help tremendously. I also believe that each student is different, and their tutoring should be tailored to their strengths and weaknesses. That is why I approach each student individually and attempt to match the sessions to what will be most helpful for each student. I am a positive person and will always approach a student with a positive outlook, even when they are having difficulty, because confidence is one key element in academic success. I have a Master's degree in English with a focus in writing." ...

"I like to teach with real-world examples, mnemonic devices, and visual aids; making connections and drawing one's own conclusions are lasting tools in learning that far surpass what memorization and rote work can achieve. I am also fluent in several languages, and enjoy teaching Italian, Spanish, and English as a second language, using immersion techniques. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Literary Translation from Brown University. This year I am embarking on a new academic pursuit; I plan to pursue a PhD in Molecular Biology beginning in the fall." ...

"Each child has a different relationship with language, and improving that relationship is impossible without first understanding it. English isn’t just a subject taught in school; it’s how we access the people and ideas around us. As a tutor, my goal is not only to prepare students for the tests and essays that will be used to evaluate them, but also to give them the skills they need to prosper as members of an English-speaking society. ."
