About James

Greetings,

My name is James, and I have over 15 years' experience as an educator in New York City public and private schools. I have worked with students ranging from middle school to adults. I have worked with various levels of ability from remedial to Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate levels. I believe that there is an educational plan that works for everyone, and that one-on-one tutoring is the perfect environment to develop that plan; indeed, tutoring provides the one-on-one time that many students so desperately need but cannot get in a traditional classroom setting.
I have many years providing one-on-one tutoring services helping students with SAT/ACT test prep, Regents test prep essay drafting, college essays, grammar, literary and rhetorical analysis. If you need help with any aspect of reading or writing, I can help you.

I have NYS Certification in ELA. I can cover, SAT, ACT, grammar, literature, AP classes, IB classes. I have taught and tutored all of these subjects in many different settings

Feel free to contact me for available times.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT English

In addition to state certification and 15+ years' classroom teaching experience, I have also worked with students for one-on-one test prep with some of the most respected companies in the field. My approach will focus on the specific skills needed for the ACT English, Reading and Writing sections.

COOP/HSPT

I have taught in Catholic high schools before, and therefore I know the requirements that those schools are looking for. In addition, I also taught in a catholic middle school where a portion of my curriculum was devoted to COOP/HSPT test prep. Finally, I have tutored privately to this specific test during my time with Huntington Learning Center.

English

I have a New York State secondary certification (grades 7-12) in English Language Arts and a master's degree in English education. I have over 15 years experience as a teacher in New York City schools, and I have worked with students from various backgrounds and with many different learning styles.

Regents

I have taught regents level English since 2007 in public and private schools in NYC. I have a total 80% passing rate during those years.

SAT Reading

In addition to State Certification in ELA and a master's degree in English education, I have extensive training in SAT test prep from some of the most foremost test prep companies. In addition, I have over 15 years of classroom experience working with all types of students from many different backgrounds and learning styles.

SAT Writing

In addition to state certification in ELA, I have extensive experience in tutoring students for the SAT writing sections. I have a detailed understanding of the grading rubric, and we will focus on maximizing your time to get the highest grade possible. My approach will also focus on the most common grammar and parts of speech questions that show up on SAT exams.

Writing

I have 15+ years' experience as a high school English teacher. In that time, I have helped many of the students in my English classes with their personal statements as well as research papers in their history and science classes. I also have extensive background in the International Baccalaureate extended essay process; working with students one-on-one to produce an original research report over the course of the school year.
