Throughout my career I have taught reading and writing to both small groups and to individual students. My one-on-one approach is informative, fun, and designed to boost testing scores. Whether preparing for SATs, ACT, GMAT, or general improvement in classroom, my teaching method is to quickly assess the needs of the student and tailor my lessons to meet these particular needs. My style is collaborative, engaging and results-oriented. I respect my students' time and will not waste it.

Social Studies,

Social Studies

As the former Editor-in-Chief of a leading educational publishing company (Human Relations Media, Inc.) in New York, part of my job was to research, write and produce educational programs for high school students in politics, government, history, economics and foreign relations. My programs won nearly every industry award, including "Best of Show" from the Society for Technical Communications. As part of my research, I would tutor individual students in schools across the country to see what areas of the social studies topics where most in need of explanation. This helped me to develop a teaching style that is creative, fun, comprehensive, and adapted to the individual needs of the student.

Awesome Tutor

Helped me with my common app. essay. He was very patient, knowledgeable, and really helped me express what I wanted to say. I had a great time working with him.

Sarah, 4 lessons with Ray

Incredibly knowledgeable, approachable; Easy to understand

Ray really listened before he gave his feedback on my essay. He pointed out the positives, asked me questions about what I wanted to communicate and gave me examples of where I achieved my goal and where I fell short. When I did not understand his point he was able to explain it differently (e.g. by showing me with specific examples). After just two sessions, I feel so much better about my personal statement and the college application process in general.
