Carefully selected, highly-credentialed tutors in New York, NY
"... It is my personal belief that a tutor must adapt to the learning style of their student. I tailor each session to suit the individual’s personality, interests, and academic needs. While I am able to sit down for a traditional session to explain a concept, I am also able to design creative and interactive lessons for both young and mature learners to break up the monotony we sometimes find in learning (especially if the student has been in class all day)..."

Favorite book(s): Nothing compares to the Harry Potter series, in my humble opinion Favorite animal: My two golden retrievers, Logan and Skylar (though my cats make a decent bid for this vote) Favorite TV show: Mad Men (nope, my company doesn't make it - but I'm genuinely hooked on this series) I warmly encourage you to contact me!

"...Similarly, I enjoy tutoring for the MCAT as I understand how stressful an experience it can be and feel that any guidance I can provide in making the experience less stressful is invaluable. In tutoring, I believe that every student learns differently and pinpointing the most effective learning strategies as well as personal strengths and weaknesses is key to developing a successful individualized plan. While standardized tests such as the MCAT can be extraordinarily taxing, I believe there are certain ways to alleviate anxiety associated with it and approach the test feeling calm, prepared, and confident..."
