Premium NYC Test Prep/Math/Econ Tutor (UWS/UES/Skype)

A well-developed vocabulary is necessary to express yourself fully and to expand your horizons when it comes to reading comprehension and writing. There are many simple ways to learn vocabulary (flash cards, quizzes, etc.). However, the benefit of one-on-one tutoring in this area resides in the customizable, flexible lesson structure that deals with vocabulary in context and use in addition to the basic memorization exercises. I have access to extensive resources online and would be able to guide a student of any level through a vocabulary expansion program. [more]
