ExperienceI began tutoring many years ago as a way of sharing my abilities to perform well on standardized tests and general academic work on a one to one basis without the constraints of a classroom setting. Over the years I have worked with students from almost all of the Manhattan private schools and have countless success stories.
I look at each situation as unique and each student individually. As such, I do not take a cookie cutter approach to tutoring. I provide personal attention and guidance to each student, instilling confidence, skills, and strategies to enable each student to reach his or her highest testing potential. I strive to motivate my students and get through to them where others have not. Two words frequently used to describe me are honest and caring.

HobbiesMy typical students fall into several categories:
The Student with Unmet Potential
I frequently am asked to help a student who is not reaching his or her potential. There can be many reasons for this. In many cases the student has grades/scores slightly above average but not exceptional. With motivation and hard work I can frequently raise not only the standardized test scores, but as a bonus the school grades also increase. Suddenly there is greater confidence and anxiety is lessened for everyone.
The Learning Disabled Student
The student with a learning disability frequently presents a challenge. However, with my endless patience and willingness of the student and parents to put in the time and effort necessary to achieve results, the results are frequently dramatic.
The Exceptional Student
Finally, when working with exceptional students, in addition to fine tuning their academics, I frequently encourage students and parents to put less time into preparation for standardized tests and to put that time into developing a stronger college application with more emphasis on extracurricular and community service activities.
