Hi, my name is Dani. I tutor students in New York City and online for high school math
, as well as for the SAT
, and Algebra Regents
exams. I attended both Duke University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I graduated with a degree in Mathematics
For the past year, I have worked full-time as a test prep tutor for a highly-regarded, boutique tutoring company in Southport, Connecticut. In the process, I have accumulated over one thousand hours of invaluable tutoring experience. Show me a SAT or ACT problem that you're having trouble with -- I bet I have seen it before! Of course, there is much more to tutoring than "knowing your stuff." I have also learned highly effective ways to convey the knowledge and skills necessary for success on these standardized tests.
The tutoring that I offer is highly personalized. I form a test-prep plan based on the student's individual strengths and weaknesses. Progress is monitored through regular homework assignments. I also give students practice tests on a semi-regular basis in order to objectively measure progress and to gauge where instruction should be focused. The material I use consists of official ACT and SAT tests and that have been administered nationwide in the past.
Tutoring is not only my job; it is a passion. I take great joy in helping my students. My work, as I see it, goes beyond preparing them for standardized tests. It involves helping them to develop skills that will serve them not only on their tests, but also in their current high school classes, their future college classes, and their eventual lives beyond academia.
I recommend that sessions last for 1.5 hours, as this time length allows for the most effective tutoring. I meet with students in mutually convenient locations (i.e., coffee shops and libraries) in mid- or downtown Manhattan. I also offer in-house tutoring in mid- and downtown Manhattan. Finally, for students who live outside of Manhattan, I offer tutoring via Skype.
