Award-Winning Tutors in New York, NY
Lauren "...However, as I've worked as a tutor, I've come to realize just how *many* of those tests I took for practice before I took the real thing. By the time I sat down to the real SAT, I'd been steeped in test-prep culture for years. Even if I didn't intentionally set out to attack the test with "tricks," those tricks were embedded in my subconscious..."
Bailey "... While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about the Spanish language, history, and writing. I bring a broad range of experiences to the table and try to impart the importance of education to each student that I work with. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and playing tennis..."
Erin "... I received my undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Science in International Business, from SUNY New Paltz in 2006. I grew up tutoring my 3 younger siblings, something that I enjoyed immensely and miss to this day. I approach tutoring differently depending on the child's or person's age and intellectual ability..."

Ethan "...I present different methods of thinking about or attacking a problem than what the student hears from his/her teacher or professor. Sometimes a different voice is all it takes. Ultimately, I try to promote deep comprehension of the material, as well as provide tips and tricks to increase test-taking speed..."
Adaobi "... I graduated medical school with awards for outstanding performance in Orthopedic Surgery. As an undergraduate, I tutored Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I also worked as a teaching assistant in the College of Math and Science, teaching and grading Algebra, Pre-calculus, Geometry, Calculus, Biochemistry, General Biology, and Molecular Biology.

Nora "...It can be easy to get discouraged in a large classroom environment, where the curriculum is decided and has to reach a multitude of people. Tutoring offers an individualized space to enhance the knowledge, gain support, re-visit, ask questions, and to develop a deeper understanding and accomplishment of the material. As a tutor, I have enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to think creatively and critically..."
Yoshi "I'm a graduate of Baruch College. I received my Bachelor of Business Administration in Operations Management, with a minor in Spanish. Since graduating, I've tutored people of all ages, with varying levels of proficiency (i.e. beginners, etc.) In addition to grammar and literature, I've helped my students improve their conversational Japanese in everyday situations. My lessons also incorporate elements of Japanese culture, especially pop culture and anime/manga, and history. In my spare time, I enjoy playing piano, painting, traveling and learning different cultures and languages.."
Frank "...Currently, I maintain interest in (and can tutor) a broad field of subjects, but the ones that I am most passionate about, that I want to spend the rest of my life pursuing, are book-related: English, Literature, and Writing. I love everything that has to do with the working of words and articulation of the surrounding world. As such, when I work with my students, I like to engage with them, both to identify (and alleviate) blocks in understanding, and also to bring out and emphasize a deeper sense of individual perspective that helps them approach their studies in ways that are both fresh and familiar..."
Nick "...Stories are one of the chief ways that human beings define and interact with the world around them, and helping my students to tell their own stories in the best way possible is the focus of my work as a tutor, whether it's with a student learning English as a second language, someone who wants to tell their story to a college admissions panel in the most effective way, or helping an American student learn their own country's history and find their place in it. My passion for language, critical thought, and engaged dialogue was honed at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, where I had the great fortune both to study with several excellent teachers of English and Theater (among many other subjects) and to work as a writing tutor for a group of freshmen learning the work of August Wilson. My work there led to one of the most challenging and rewarding tutoring experiences I've had: acting as a Thesis Tutor for several of my classmates in our final semester, helping them develop and polish their work on capstone papers until it was the best it could be while still working on my own thesis..."
Camilla "...Since graduation, I have spent my time finishing premed requirements for my future applications to medical school, visiting my family in Italy, and privately tutoring students in New York City high schools. Having been raised in New York City myself, I have first-hand experience with the rigorous academic curriculums and standardized tests with which many New York City students are challenged. I feel passionate about imparting the academic knowledge and advice that I have cultivated during my studies to other students..."
