Jeremy is an excellent teacher. My daughter has benefited in more ways than I can count because of Jeremy. She has become more organized and is learning an advanced curriculum in both math and writing. He is a dedicated teacher and always makes sure my child's learning comes first. Now, instead of arguing with her to study for exams, she does so without hesitation. He gives me a summary of every lesson and explains what my daughter has been learning and what she can improve on. Overall, Jeremy is a excellent role model and plays a pivotal role in my daughter's life. I won't hesitate to hire him again for my second daughter if needed.
I have been working with Jim on preparing for the SAT and ACT tests since August 2013. For the first couple of months, Jim and I had our sessions on the Upper West Side. As I have to take the GW Bridge to get to Manhattan, I sometimes ran into traffic related problems that prevented me from getting to the city on time to meet him. Jim was very understanding of this, and suggested that we have our lessons on Skype instead. He is very flexible as far as scheduling, which is very convenient for a Junior with a hectic schedule. After taking a practice test, Jim and I went over the questions that I missed. I read the questions out loud because he did not have a copy of the test booklet. I actually wasn't surprised that he was able to tell me all of the correct answers because he has been teaching me all kinds of fool-proof strategies to find the right answer. Jim has helped me raise my composite ACT score by 7 points. Additionally, he has been helping me tremendously throughout this college process. Overall, Jim is a pleasure to work with as he is honest, smart, and encouraging.
I have been studying ESL lessons with Maura for almost 3 weeks and I have been enjoying a lot. She is a great professor, very friendly, she has a huge experience and has been providing me lots of tips to improve my English. She has an excellent method to teach you during the conversations that make the classes be so funny and instructives at the same time.
For over a year Nick tutored our daughter once a week for her SAT test. He assigned homework and gave lessons that improved her score around 130 points. We cant thank him enough.
It is a pleasure to work with Dillon. He was hired to teach piano to my two sons. He is very knowledgeable and patient to be working with 2 boys in back to back with piano lessons. He has made the process very fun for my kids and they like working with him. Also, after their piano lessons, he works with them on their reading and math skills to keep them current and help with their weak areas.
Jim did a terrific job preparing my graduating daughter for the ACT. They focused on improving her math and writing skills, and over the course of 6 weeks, her practice scores improved markedly. Her final ACT score of 32 is a testament to Jim's teaching abilities. Thanks for all your help. James
Mr. Connor has been working with my children the last two years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drum and guitar. Unlike other teacher we had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporate games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interest. My children adores Mr. Connor and looking forward to work with him every time.
Dr.V is an incredible French teacher. I really enjoy his teaching technique. I am confident that if I continue my lessons (2x a week) for an indefinite amount of time I will be fluent in reading, writing and conversation. I recommend Dr.V without reservation. I can't wait for my next lesson!!! Merci!!!
I highly recommend Marisa as a tutor. She has helped both of my sons (11 and 14) tremendously. Not only does she gauge their needs perfectly, she also provides exemplary descriptions of those needs (for you) and how she will address them. And her plan is always amazing and spot on. From reading comprehension to writing, Marisa has a knack for bringing out the best work in a child and inspiring him to work harder and smarter. She addresses macro issues as well as nuances, and inspires the kids she tutors to want to do more. It's nothing short of a miracle. And the boys LOVE working with her. If you're looking for someone to help your child, Marisa is the best.
Mr. Michael is an excellent tutor. He puts his students first and has been very compassionate towards me during the time he conducted lessons with me. He never made money his priority. Whenever we had lessons, he would always be prepared and bring enough material that would carry me throughout the week. I am extremely grateful for his service and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an excellent tutor.
Meghan is a highly-skilled reading tutor. Her teaching techniques and enthusiasm inspire my daughter to read. And my daughter looks forward to every session. I would highly recommend Meghan for 2nd & 3rd graders.
Margaret tutored me for the SAT and I can definitely say that without her help I would not have been able to make such a significant improvement. She gives many tips and methods on how to go about solving trouble spots, but most importantly she gives methods of improvement based on your strengths and weaknesses, not generalized tips. This really helped me improve the Writing and Critical reading portions of the SAT. Overall, Margaret is very kind and helpful, and I am sure she will exceed you expectations in whatever academic field you are recieving aid/coaching in.
Best thing for my child. The lessons were fun and engaging. Highly recommend.
Dan has made a world of difference helping our 16 yo prepare for the SAT. I highly recommend Dan for students struggling with test anxiety and/or reading comprehension. Our daughter’s reading scores increased significantly with his help. Dan is a patient teacher and great at test-taking strategy, but what we appreciated most was the confidence he gave her for test day.
Mrs. Schoenwald was my 10th and 11th Grade english teacher at a special needs High School. Mrs. Schoenwald's instruction was always clear and concise; when focus was lost Marna was able to easily redirect the class back to the lesson. With Marna's guidance and teaching style our class was able to excel and enjoy learning even when what was being taught (book being read or essay) was not interesting or engaging.
Femi Lewis did edits for my full length novel, which were complex because it was written in a southern voice. Femi Lewis rose to the task...She dug right in to the voice, timeline and flow of the novel. If authenticity and superior work is what you're looking for Lewis is it. My novel wasn't complete without her knowledge and structuring techniques. She is a master of punctuation and getting me to say, show and tell my story to my readers. I should have found Ms. Lewis many drafts ago! My novel is "Weaver" and thanks to her work, it's a great read.
I love the Italian language and culture and realized my speaking abilities from my university studies were rustier than I thought during a recent trip to Italy this past summer. Upon my return to the States, I immediately sought private tutoring and I could not be more satisfied in finding Mariateresa. I've seen vast improvement in my comprehension and speaking since I started taking lessons with her. The first couple months were focused on fundamentals and book work but now each lesson begins with about 30 mins of conversation (in Italian of course) before diving into books. I cannot recommend Mariateresa enough regardless of your comprehension level because not only does she challenge me every week to improve my skill but the time spent with her is very enjoyable and something I look forward to every week.
My daughter did reading lessons with Helen last summer. She really enjoyed it. They sat outside together and read when it was not too hot outside. Helen concentrated on books that my daughter enjoyed. She remembers Cam Jansen books the most. I think for her first experience with a reading tutor, Helen was great. My daughter enjoyed going and never complained about her reading tutor time and she typically complains about everything.
Mara is a talented and insightful teacher. During the time I worked with her, my tone and intonation improved considerably. She expanded my musical horizons and gave me essential tools I continue to use in my singing.
I am an experienced tutor with a Bachelor's degree of Arts. I have been tutoring for over 20 years and nearly always show improved results. My schedule is flexible and I can travel to your home for the tutoring sessions.
I provide multisensory literacy interventions for children and adults who struggle with reading and/or writing. The list below is not exhaustive, but gives an idea of the different needs of many of the learners I help. * Language-based learning disabilities such as dyslexia * Struggling readers and total non-readers * Poor handwriting print and/or cursive * ADHD difficulty with organization and study skills * English language learners * Expository writing I offer the following: * Consultation The initial phone consultation takes about 15 minutes. It is an opportunity for me to understand your needs (or your childs needs) and for you to ask questions about working with me. If you decide to proceed, the next step is an evaluation. You can click on the link in the sidebar to schedule a consultation. * Evaluation Using various appropriate assessment tools, I can provide an in-depth evaluation of language and literacy skills, and provide a written report. The assessment will be followed up by an in-office, phone or video-conference meeting to review the evaluation. * Individualized Learning Plan Since everyone has different needs and goals, I tailor your learning experience to meet your needs. I use a diagnostic-prescriptive approach to facilitate learning, often incorporating tools and materials from different sources. To accommodate even the most reluctant learner with the busiest schedule, I can offer learning sessions via video-conferencing, depending on the learners needs and comfort with using technology. * Intervention Sessions will reflect the individual learners learning style and goals. Some of the specific areas I target are phonemic awareness, decoding and encoding, vocabulary through morphology, comprehension, pronunciation, handwriting, and written composition. * Follow-Up Along the journey, we will be assessing your progress. Parents and adult learners can schedule periodic check-up sessions and also receive reports to outline and chart goals.
