Caroline Slutsky was the perfect match as a tutor for my daughter. Caroline has always been conscientious, consistent and courteous. Each session was always very productive. Now that J. has successfully improved her reading score 100 points, she looks forward to the next step, which is working with Caroline on her college essays.Feb 27, 2016
I want to thank Caroline Slutsky for helping my son on his SATs and college essay. My sons SAT score improved by 310 points after her tutoring. Carolines logical and enthusiastic teaching methods and tips were really impressive and helpful to my son, and he enjoyed her tutoring. Her college essay instructions were also effective in expressing my sons experiences and achievements and I am sure that her advice made my sons essay differentiated from others. I would definitely recommend her to any student.Feb 24, 2016
Caroline Slutsky was so great with R, and made the college essay and application process much less stressful for us all. Caroline was able to assess where R needed some support, and with her help, R was able to write essays that were strong and in her own voice. I appreciated the fact that Caroline knew how to push just enough when the essay needed revisions, and how she was able to keep Rs confidence up essay after essay (there were a lot of them!). Their rapport was wonderful, and I do believe that is one of Carolines greatest assetsshe knew how to make R comfortable with a process that was definitely not in her comfort zone. Iwerecommend her without reservation.Feb 25, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?-I charge $250/hr for test prep. (Discounted from $300/hr) -I charge $250/hr for college admissions prep. (Discounted from $300/hr) *Because of these challenging times due to COVID-19, I am pleased to offer these prices which are significantly discounted from my usual rates.*
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For College Admissions Prep, please contact me for detailed information. Standardized Test Process: I like to look through the student's past tests and scores (if they have any) to evaluate strengths and weaknesses and gauge improvement potential. I discuss the major test strategies and make sure the student starts to employ any she's not utilizing already. I assign practice tests for weekly homework and go over the incorrect problems in the following session. I have my students cut out the problems they get wrong and paste them in a spiral notebook so they have a central place to study--my students love this tactic and it helps them get great results.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Every single type, including those with learning differences, and I tailor their prep to suit their individual needs.
