Approved subjects are in bold.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have worked with many students on their SAT's and SAT writing and reading sections. In terms of performance, students I have tutored increase their score an average of 150 points per section, and an overall average of 450 points on the test as a whole. Depending on your daughter's starting point, her scores may go up much more, or less, if she is in the high 600's or 700's.
I was a member of several elite club teams from the ages of 11-18 including FC Westchester, Manhattan Magic, Nike Select, and Westchester Select. Injuries prevented me from trying out for ODP, the olympic develoment program. Then, I was recruited to play at the Division 1 level in college by West Point, Columbia, and several other colleges. However, I decided to walk onto the Columbia Varsity Football team as a place kicker. I had to stop football due to injuries, which I have since had surgeries for, and now I have recovered.
I graduated from Columbia University in 2012 with a degree in Neuroscience, where I studied learning and social cognition. I was a student with learning disabilities, and was a member of ODS (office of disability services), and while in college I worked with and tutored students who had disabilities at the high school, middle school, and elementary school level. I currently tutor a boy about to enter 5th grade at Buckley who has ADD, in addition to 7 other students who have auditory processing disorders, dysgraphia, as well as other learning disabilities. I have also worked with students who have autism. I am very familiar with the DSM V & Neuropsych evaluations having referred 6 students who had disabilities diagnosed that were previously undiscovered. I take an approach geared towards the individual student, whether they are a visual, kinetic, or auditory learner. I find that patience, experimenting with different styles, and getting the students feedback as been extremely successful. In addition, I tutored students with disabilities going back to middle school, high school, and early college. As such, I have great experience working with students that have disabilities of all ages and skill sets.
