My Mission: To deliver clear, concise, and simple solutions that translate into meaningful and measurable improvement for my clients.
Hi..I'm Craig Lanzoni, a former corporate finance guy who was introduced to teaching when a colleague asked me to present a lecture on International Finance to his business class at The Westchester Business Institute (now The College of Westchester).
That was in 1988. Since that time I've dedicated my career to teaching.
At the college level, I've spent over 25 years teaching undergraduate college courses including College Math, Algebra, Statistics, Economics, Business Management, Business Writing, and Operations Management.
In addition, I've spent the past 20 years tutoring SAT and ACT, and 12 years tutoring GRE and GMAT. Over that time I've worked with over 2,000 students in one-on-one, small group, classroom, and lecture hall settings. My single largest event was a 4 hour SAT math seminar that was attended by 165 High School Students in Greenwich, CT.
Most recently I've partnered with The Walter Luckett Jr. Foundation to bring SAT and ACT prep to students in New Haven, Bridgeport, and Waterbury.
My spare time is spent playing golf, skiing and hiking, and teaching archery to kids in after school programs.
As your tutor, my job is to provide you with simple approaches that lead to dependable results. In essence, to "teach you how to fish". Your job is to learn "how to fish". If you're looking for someone to feed you, with no effort on your part, I'm not the tutor you want. But if you're looking for a tutor who can provide you with those simple, useable approaches, then give me a call.
In any case, I wish you the best.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
A typical first session will first be spent getting to know one another. Proper chemistry is essential for success. Next, we'll determine your goals. For admissions tests, that is usually a score range that falls comfortably within the parameters set by your list of colleges or graduate schools. For a specific course, that may mean a desired grade. As an athlete, you may be concerned about meeting the requirements of The NCAA for division I or II athletics. We will then proceed to a discussion of your perceived strengths and weaknesses, and create a master plan to achieve our desired goal. Lastly, we'll begin work. In almost all cases we'll begin with math. The reason is twofold. 1. Math is the area where we can realize IMMEDIATE improvement. 2. Math is the area that troubles most students.
