About Neal

From the midwest, but also a big city kid, I've been enjoying living in New York and working as a professional actor and child care professional since moving here in September. I have experience with students of all ages as a babysitter, tutor, camp counselor, coach, and theatre director. I have a profound love of English and History (my two strongest subjects) and am a gifted writer.

As a honors student at the University of Michigan I was proud to be a part of the America Reads program, where I taught second and third grade students in Detroit, MI reading and writing concepts and helped them improve and utilize the skills I taught them in their classroom at a high level. I also edited essays through the English department at the University and have tutored the students I babysit here in the city.

For the past two years, I have been a visiting Artist in Residence at Pepperdine University where I direct scenes from the plays of William Shakespeare, working with students in the university's Great Books Program. In addition to directing, I help the students better understand how to approach Shakespeare's work as both literature and drama.

My approach is simple - I find the student's strengths and encourage them to use those strengths to progress and achieve in each subject. Confidence is key in my tutoring approach. I believe that a confident student approaches their work from a position of strength and enthusiasm, not from a position of weakness and confusion. I am constructive and push my students to do their best and I am exceptionally gifted at motivating my students to help them get the most out of their talents.

I am a creative, insightful, fun and dedicated individual with a passion for working with students. I promise to work hard at every session and engage with my students on a personal and professional level.

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.
