Jeremy has helped me extensively in both math and english. Not only has he helped me improve my grades but he has helped me get ahead of my classmates. Currently Jeremy is helping to prepare me for the ACT and I am prepping for an excellent score! Lastly, Jeremy makes himself available to help me at any time, including outside our sessions.
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 took English lessons with Maura for 6 months. During the classes, we put the emphasis on conversation. We talked about a large number of topics : Politics, Society, day to day life... It gave me much more confidence in my relations with English speakers and, coming from a European country, it also helped me to understand better the American culture. Maura is open, friendly, she makes you feel at ease and she enjoys teaching ESL.
Mr. Parez was my tutor in high school for about a year to help me prepare for the SAT exam. The tutoring sessions were very convenient because they were done over Skype. Having the tutoring sessions done over Skype cut out time/money that would have been put into travel. Mr. Parez was always accommodating when it came to scheduling my tutoring sessions around my busy schedule. Mr. Parez had me take a preliminary SAT exam to see the areas of the exam I excelled in and which areas I struggled with. He helped me improve significantly in the areas I struggled in through various personalized lessons and homework assignments. Mr. Parez helped me to raise my score significantly. I believe that achieving a higher score on the SAT exam made me a stronger College applicant and helped me to get into 7 out of 7 Colleges that I applied to, including my top choice, of which I am now in attendance. I highly recommend Mr. Parez for any of you tutoring needs.
Mr. Treadway was a great tutor. I had a great experience with Mr. Treadway, everything he taught was explained clearly and thoroughly. He tutored me for the SAT test and as a result my grade was boosted by 300 points. Not only is Mr. Treadway a great tutor but he also knows how to interact with people and make his lessons captivating.
I learn English from Connor. He proves what a professional great bilingual teacher should be and opens my eyes to the American culture. I have a full time job, he always tries his best to get our class arranged. By using various appropriate methods: reading, dialogue, writing, discussion, he makes my learning interesting and helpful. I got admitted to Columbia University thanks to his help and encouragement. He inspires me to love learning, explore new fields as well.
I like my ESL lessons with Marion. She taught me not only the language but also the American culture, which I'm very interested in. Besides that, she is such a nice person that talking with her is always enjoyable.
I always wanted to speak French but was intimated to start learning as an adult. Dr. V. was the answer for me! He was so patient with me and very encouraging with every word, phrase and sentence. A really great teacher overall!
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.
Akiha has been very supportive in her Japanese lessons. She has a very flexible schedule and is very willing to work with you and match her lessons with your personal style of learning. She is very patient and strives to meet the students' needs during each lesson. Because of her help I have been rapidly progressing towards my goal of becoming fluent. I think that she is a very suitable tutor for any level!
Michael is a very experienced teacher. We are developing a study plan for my teenage Chinese stepdaughter to master the English language. He spends hours preparing material for sessions with students that he tutors. He is patient and he understands the needs of non-English speaking Asian immigrants. He is truly a gentleman and shows great respect when he communicates with others, no matter what their age, race or nationality. Thank you, Michael, for all that you do.
My daughter (7yrs old) had her first lesson with Chiaki. She had fun and is looking forward to her next lesson. Chiaki is definitely great with kids.
Best thing for my child. The lessons were fun and engaging. Highly recommend.
Francesca has been my teacher for about 10 lessons. Needed some class to improve my Italian for my trip to Rome and to Sicily. Francesca was the best ever . She prepared each lesson carefully, made me comfortable and explain me everything I wanted to know. It was easy with her because she is Italian native but her English is great too. That allowed us to communicate when Italian itself was not sufficient enough for me. I highly recommend her, she is a responsible young girl, full of initiative and willing to teach proper Italian in a most comfortable way and environment possible . Five star teacher for me! Outstanding.
Victoria is a wonderful teacher and person. We started understanding and combining simple phrases while travelling in Spanish speaking country after couple of months of her lessons. And after a year I already had working knowledge of Spanish.
My english level and fluency has improved significantly after working for 6 months with Michael. I have reached an advanced level!
Ann was a wonderful tutor; she prepared me and guided me to take the best path for my TOELF test. I appreciated the simplicity she used in her explanations. Great advice, individual approach and positive attitude. Always on time, ready to help, intelligent and kind. She was patient and very efficient in her teaching methods. She was really encouraging. I highly recommend her Thank you, Ann!
I am a Long Island based instructor and certified to teach English as a second language; this includes English literacy and reading. I have taught at a community college in New York and really enjoy watching the light bulb flash when a student understands something new. Also, I have been a swimming instructor and a lifeguard for seven years. I've coached and worked with all levels and ages. I am a motivator and your cheerleader, and I want to help you accomplish your goals.
I teach at the student's level. I try to make the lessons fun. We work with a textbook and also have free conversations.
I understand that content is equally important to test technique. Studying isolated patches of topics without connecting them to test strategy does not spell success in the game of standardized test taking.
I am a master's degree graduate from the University of Ireland who has written numerous published economic articles as well as authored poetic and narrative prose.
