Enjoy teaching,and love young energetic and challenging students

I have students who failed reading in class improve their reading score tremendously. I teach students how to carefully read each passage and annotate to get a detailed picture of the reading before answering questions. I have eight years classroom experience working with students of differing strengths and weaknesses. Students with varying learning styles and abilities can be taught using a variety of creative techniques. Using this approach to teaching almost certainly will allow you to find ways of stimulating students to grasp the material being taught. I have learned in the process of t [more]

I scored a 36 on the ACT Reading Test by learning how to anticipate what the test maker would ask about each passage. I help students learn how to read actively, and provide concrete strategies for correctly identifying the main ideas and key details that are likely to come up in the questions. Active reading is essential to doing well, and the good news is anyone can learn how to be an active reader! If you're looking for expert instruction from a tutor who genuinely cares, I'm your guy. I scored in the 99th percentile on all the tests I teach, and, perhaps more importantly, I have many years [more]

Accomplished Writing and College Essay Tutor

I work with students attending demanding schools and applying to very selective colleges. I can not only teach strategies to help you move quickly through the test, but I can teach the concepts this part of the test is based on. The questions include identifying the main idea, drawing conclusions, making inferences, understanding the logic of organization, or explaining words from the context. I can significantly improve your comprehension and vocabulary. I am a professional writer of commentary and literary essays. I have worked as a columnist and essayist for Newsday, The Philadelphia Inqu [more]

A Laid Back Tutor who Specializes in Math, Science, and Test Prep

When I first started my college journey, I hadn't a clue about what I wanted to do. Over the years, I've narrowed it down to two things: I love working with people, and I love helping them learn. I've spent years working for other tutoring/test prep companies and have decided to venture out on my own. As a graduate with a degree in Biochemistry, I have a very strong foundation in math and science. When I took my own SAT over 10 years ago, I scored a 2220 (with an 800 on Math, 700 in Reading,...

Yale grad focused on helping top students pursue top SAT/ACT scores.

It has taken me many years to develop some incredibly powerful teaching strategies on the ACT reading section. The ACT has a certain style, and a great reader, if unaware of that style, can still struggle on this test; at least 37 of the 40 questions can be answered simply by locating quotes throughout the passage that answer each of those particular questions. Scanning quickly through the passage requires some getting used to, but is incredibly easy to do once you're used to it (you don't have to be an amazing reader to do this... remember, you've been reading almost your whole life).

High school physics & engineering teacher, 17 yrs experience

I find nothing more rewarding than helping students to deeply understand how things work and to watch them grow more and more confident in their own abilities. I am a full-time high school physics and engineering teacher, and the classroom setting allows for all kinds of exciting projects, demos, labs, and group work. Conversely, working with students one-on-one gives me the opportunity to tailor my teaching to their individual learning styles. This is my 17th year as a full-time high school... [more]

Math Tutor & SAT/ACT/SSAT/ISEE Test Prep

Einstein once said, ?If you can?t teach it to a six year old, you don?t understand it yourself." I certainly don?t profess to be Einstein, but I do think the key to effective tutoring is being able to articulate difficult concepts in a simple manner. I have a BS from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and an MBA from NYU. During my career I held a number of technical positions: consulting engineer, technical sales engineer, sales manager, and product manager. I have tutored many students in bot... [more]
