Bio

If you're looking for a tutor who is not only experienced but also works with the psychological barriers and negative self-talk that her student might be facing, I just might be the tutor for you!

Optimism is a key component of my tutorials and students are taught the realistic steps and fundamentals to reach an optimistic goal. Students are challenged to maximize their potential, leaving with them a confidence and self belief that may not have previously existed.

If you're looking for a tutor who is not only experienced but also works with the psychological barriers and negative self-talk that her student might be facing, I just might be the tutor for you!

Optimism is a key component of my tutorials and students are taught the realistic steps and fundamentals to reach an optimistic goal. Students are challenged to maximize their potential, leaving with them a confidence and self belief that may not have previously existed.

Not only will I cover the content, but I will also teach my students how to manage his/her nervous feelings during the test, and how (s)he can focus on the test itself as opposed to any negative thoughts that pop up.

I have tutored for over 7 years. During my 2.5 years as a SAT instructor and Master tutor with The Princeton Review, I taught and tutored a diverse number of students from an aspiring Olympian to Ivy League-bound individuals. When not exercising my quirky (possibly a little lame) sense of humor, I am working with my student and his/her unique learning abilities, pushing and tweaking lessons to make sure that my student's future is not limited by his/her SAT score, or subject grades. My students have improved by 300+ points in the SAT overall exam, but results vary depending on how diligent each student is in doing homework and assigned practice tests .

By the end of the tutorials, my student will not only have the skills, but (s)he'll look at a problem and have a mental map of how to approach it.

Please let me know if you're interested in having me as your tutor, I look forward to hearing from you. Other than that, have an amazing day!

Sat math tutoring

Priyanka is being very helpful. I feel comfortable talking to her and studying with her. Our study sessions have been going well so far.

Hillary, 9 lessons with Priyanka

Perfect for my child.

Priyanka is patient and caring, and knows the material extremely well. I really like her style of not just giving the answers, but ensuring that my child understands the material by requesting that my child answer the question. My child needs this "tough love" methodology as she used to some tutors that simply gave the answers too readily. I highly recommend Priyanka.
