In the past, I have tutored students to take the the COOP and HSPT to be admitted to private schools. More recently in my private practice, I have tutored elementary students to take the NJASK and the Terra Nova. With each student, I evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, provide review of key concepts, practical strategies for test-taking, and administer practice tests. In addition to preparing students academically, I focus on reducing their test anxiety and building their self-confidence. [more]

I have intensively tutored several students who were preparing for the COOP and HSPT exams. They all got accepted to the schools of their choice. I particularly enjoy motivating younger students to reach their peak performance levels with English Language Arts-related skills including reading comprehension, vocabulary building, and essay writing. Sometimes this takes the form of gently encouraging students to concentrate harder. Other times, students who are overachievers need to be reminded that their best is truly good enough. In addition, I also help students with other aspects of their app [more]

With my 11 years of assistant teaching with elementary students specifically with literacy, language arts and math and my experience tutoring math through middle school and algebra, I feel highly qualified to tutor in the area of the COOP/HSPT exam. My expertise in mathematics through college level courses coupled with my extensive training in language arts at the primary level enable me to tutor students of various needs. I am currently tutoring two students who will be taking this test in November. I feel my experience with tutoring for the math regents, the GED, and the 10th grade Intern [more]

I have worked for several years tutoring middle school students on the COOP/HSPT/TACHS exam/ I have helped students increased their vocabulary, straighten their grammar, and learn to carefully read and annotate each passage on the exam. I have worked diligently with students on the math section and help model pre-algebraic and numerical equations. This is one of my favorite tests to teach!

I have helped many students do well on the Cooperative Admissions Program (COOP) test and gain entrance to the Catholic high school of their choice. The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is another common achievement test for those who want to enter high schools of different types. The contents of these tests are similar and I have obtained uniformly excellent results tutoring students in both tests. Any educational problem can be fixed, no matter how hard it seems. There is hope. Above the level of hope is competence. I am referring here to the competence of a skilled tutor who has taken [more]

I tutor for all sections of the COOP. I am very experienced with this test and can show you how to work it to get a top score. The reading section is very straightforward. However, some of the analogies and synonyms can be challenging. I show you how to navigate this test and think about the words and their relationships. I can help with the math section too. Even if you haven't learned all the math for the test, I can show you how you can still do well on the test. If necessary, I can teach you the math you need, even if you haven't learned it in school or just plain don't remember. [more]

I have prepared students for the TACHS, SHSAT,COOP,and HSPT and scored in the 99th percentile in the COOP and HSPT myself. Using my background in Latin, I help students break vocabulary words into their bases. Math is usually the most difficult area, so I spend the most time here and stress estimations and proportions. Students usually see how verbal proportions are analogies. I focus on the common ideas in Grammar and Reading Comprehension and use paper cutouts to elucidate the tricky "Abilities" section of the TACHS. I use expected value and other mathematical techniques to teach optimal str [more]

I have taught the COOP exam to an 8th grade class, and have tutored the SHSAT individually. My plans for both tests are to review answers to questions thoroughly, even explaining why other answers may be wrong, when appropriate. I also discuss strategies for taking the exam, which I sometimes find almost as important as knowing the material. I am a very patient Math tutor who is dedicated to improving my student's skills. I tutor Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry and Geometry. I have tutored for 21 years. I tutor Math Regents Exams, GED Math, SAT Math, and the Catholic High S [more]
