Introduction: SCHOOL SUPPORT: Feeling overwhelmed and struggling with your school work? Help is on the way!  I offer K-12 tutoring for all subjects, and test prep. 1 on 1 sessions, scheduled at your convenience. I work with different types of learning styles, visual, auditory, as well as accommodate kids with learning challenges and special needs. Well versed with public and private school curriculums. ABOUT ME: I'm an award-winning educator (Top Pro 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, Best of Thumbtack 2016) and founder of the dynamic education company ConnectPrep. I teach all subjects (K-12), AP/IB subjects and test prep (ACT, SAT, SAT subject tests, ISEE, SSAT, PSAT, SHSAT, and the TACHS test). My goal is to redefine “tutoring” by using innovative teaching methods to find solutions for our students. I connect concepts, simplify, and create opportunities for students of all ages to excel in the classroom. As a result the majority of my students score in the 98th or higher percentiles on the ACT and SAT. LEARNING CHALLENGES: I also have extensive experience working with students who have various learning challenges such as ADHD, CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder), Dyslexia, and EFD ( Executive Function Deficit). COLLEGE ADVISING: If you are in need of College Advising, I have an incredibly high placement rate with students who have applied to the most competitive universities and programs. Additionally, my company ConnectPrep is also a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and subscribes to its high standards of integrity and professional practices to better serve our students. These are some of the college application components we work on: Evaluate all and assemble a college list Letters of Recommendation Networking Letters Resume Internships/Extracurricular Activities Essays Application Options (ED,REA,EA,RD,Transfer) Interview Prep (If Needed) Complete and Review all Applications Financial aid and scholarship qualification strategies A partial list of college acceptances: Numerous BS/MD programs with average acceptance rates <5%, all majors and specializations, Cornell, Northwestern, Washington University in St. Louis,Penn, Harvard, Stanford, UVA, UMich, Middlebury College,Colby College, Wesleyan, Bates, UVA, Wake Forest,Emory,Pomona,Columbia,NYU (Honors/Stern Business),Yeshiva (Honors),University of Florida,University of Miami,Southern Cal,UCLA,University of Wisconsin,University of Chicago,Duke,Amherst,Yale,Cal Berkeley,Boston College, UNC,Carnegie Mellon, George Washington, Dartmouth, Brown,Williams, Oberlin, Case Western,William and Mary,Vanderbilt, Occidental, RISD, MIT, Villanova, Princeton,Oxford,Cambridge,McGill University, Georgetown, University of Wisconsin, Boston University, Boston College, John Hopkins, Northeastern, Harvey Mudd, Rice, Notre Dame, Richmond Many of my students have been awarded scholarships and financial aid that has covered significant or even 100% of tuition costs. There are many great colleges to choose from and I work hard to ensure my students choose a school that aligns with their future goals. The fit, environment, programs, etc... are areas that I really focus on. Some schools are also more generous with financial aid packages and have larger endowments. I am very transparent with this as it's always wonderful being accepted, but the finances have to work for each family. I love teaching and always being in a creative environment that varies everyday. The reward of seeing my students overcome challenges, gain confidence, and reach their goals is incredible!

I have been working on the ACT with Chris at ConnectPrep and he is a very approachable, and helpful tutor. He gives you homework you must do on your own, and he helps you find ways to solve the complicated questions that are very specific on the ACT. You can tell he is experienced with the way he approaches the test and problems. As time goes by, I feel that the problems are becoming easier. I personally think Chris is a great tutor for the ACT.

Jeremy Fine at ConnectPrep is an exceptional tutor for standardized test prep and college guidance. He crafted a specified set of test prep materials for the ACT, which catered to what I needed help in the most. With his help, I raised my score from a 28 to a 33! I highly recommend Jeremy and the ConnectPrep team because of the time he spends to help each student achieve their full potential. Because of Jeremy, I am attending my dream university and program, and I couldn’t be happier.

College Admissions Counseling

Mr. Fine was always there by my side throughout the whole college application process. He made time for me when I needed someone to critique my work, even going out of his way to make personal outlines on college essays. As a student, I always found my strong suit to be science and math rather than writing. So when it came to writing personal essays I was a little lost. Mr. Fine provided guidance on how to properly approach my essays. Not only am I attending my dream school but I have become a better writer! I couldn’t be any happier with the outcome!

I initially reached out to Jeremy for ACT tutoring for my son but in turn got so much more. Jeremy is very knowledgeable in every aspect of a child's high school and college experience and all that is expected of them. This knowledge was incredibly valuable to us. Jeremy was not simply a tutor to help with a test score but has become a mentor to my son and has stayed with us on the whole college journey. Jeremy is able to see a child's true potential and unlock the confidence they need to grow into who they were meant to be. He was with us from school selection, application essays, prepping for college interviews and reviewing acceptance packages. We were grateful that Jeremy was in our corner the whole time. My son is now heading to his dream school with an amazing offer.

College Admissions Counseling

I reached out to Jeremy after reading all the positive feedbacks on thumbtack. His services have been extremely valuable in helping my son (a 9th grader) in school course selection, summer activities, internship and extracurricular activities planning. He shared tailored ideas and advice that fit my son's strength and interest very well. His tutoring definitely helped my son to make well informed decisions, to start thinking more strategically in school and extracurricular activity involvement. Jeremy is an excellent tutor and greater communicator. My son really enjoyed talking to him. I really appreciate the positive influence he has had. My son opened up a lot more and started sharing thoughts and discussing with us after a few tutoring sessions with Jeremy.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I work with my families and create a payment structure to stay within their budget. I truly believe that everyone should have access to a quality education and the opportunity to advance their skills.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Each student learns differently and I emphasize a team based approach (student-instructor-parents-school teachers) built around positive reinforcement and assessments that identify the teaching that will be most effective with each individual student. After the initial meeting, I will then create a curriculum for each student based on my assessments. As we continue our sessions, I provide a lesson plan each week and continue to monitor my student’s progress.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been teaching academic, test-prep, and study skills to my students for 10+ years. I am also a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis.
