About Ethan


Bio

The son of two English teachers, I’ve been tutoring, editing and proofreading since the 8th grade. On long car rides while other children were spotting VW Beetles, I was identifying participles and gerundial phrases. I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s in School Counseling.

As an SAT/ACT tutor I not only help students find the right answers, I teach the rules of English so they can understand *why* the answers are right. Knowing the rules means you find the answers more quickly. When you answer more quickly...you can get to more questions.

As an essay specialist I help students to find their voice, and express that voice clearly and persuasively. I can help with any kind of writing, but I specialize in persuasive essays (like college apps) in which you want to convey how awesome you are by showing it more so than saying it.

As a general English tutor I help with comprehension/writing skills/grammar/vocabulary by breaking things down into understandable parts. It's an amazing thing when a student stops thinking they're "no good" at reading or writing. Sometimes they even grow to like it.

In the last few years I have helped students gain admission to Harvard, Juilliard, Geneseo, Binghamton, Tufts, Emerson, Bryn Mawr, Marymount Manhatttan, Temple and Tisch School of the Arts to name a few. And we had fun while doing it.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English, and a Master's in School Counseling. I've been tutoring SAT/ACT, Essay Writing and general English for many years. As a longtime teen center director, my greatest pleasure is seeing a student's pride and relief when they gain understanding of a difficult subject, or get into their first-choice college. Moreover, we have fun doing it.

So pleased we found someone helpful and fun

Only the 1st session and my son feels he has learned things he can use for the SAT. So glad we could find someone who was willing to work with our schedule and meet my son's needs.
