Hello. I have been an Ivy-League educated private tutor for over 15 years. I graduated as salutatorian from Clarkstown High School South in West Nyack, N.Y., and received National Merit Commended Scholar Distinction. I then entered the University of Pennsylvania where I majored in the Biological Basis of Behavior and minored in Biology & Psychology. I graduated from UPENN with summa cum laude distinction. I obtained a graduate degree from UMDNJ, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where I received my Master's of Science in Biomedical Sciences.
I am a college professor and college consultant who works with students in nearly any academic subject from pre-Kindegraten through elementary, middle, high school, college, and graduate school. I excel in tutoring students in academic subjects including Mathematics, the Sciences-Biology/Chemistry at any level and elementary physics, English, as well as many specialty subject areas-including Anatomy and Physiology at the college level.
Another one of my specialties is preparing students for Test Preparation at any age for standardized tests, including the PSAT, SAT, and ACT Exams, as well as SAT II subject exams for college preparation. I also tutor students for private school admissions testing including the ISEE and SSAT exams, as well as private school and college admissions consulting. College consulting services include essay development, application and school selection support.
I have tutored students in various subjects, including study skills and organization since I was a high school student and through my educational career, at which point I decided to pursue this as a profession.
I invite the opportunity to tutor your child, as I find educating students a very rewarding experience.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please contact me as soon as possible for further inquiries. I look forward to working with you and your student.
Hallie has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 2 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Hallie not only knows the subject matter of Anatomy & Physiology, she also knows how to teach it. As a college professor, I know how important it is to develop positive relationships with students in order to enable them to learn, and Hallie has developed a very positive relationship with our student, who has some learning disabilities. The results of Hallie's tutoring speak for themselves: our student received a high grade on her course in Anatomy & Physiology I this past fall (2012), and she is doing well in Anatomy & Physiology II this spring (2013). We are so thankful that we found Hallie.Tom, 63 lessons with HallieTutor responded:
Thanks for the review, Tom! It is a pleasure working with your student!!
Great tutor - gave me the confidence to answer SAT questions correctly
I had Hallie tutor me for several hours to help improve my SAT scores. She is very knowledgeable and organized and always came well prepared and on time. I had struggled with the reading and writing sections of the SAT and felt that I was not performing to the best of my abilities. Hallie was very patient with me and was able to clearly explain the reasoning behind the correct answers. She positively encouraged me and gave me the confidence to answer the questions correctly. Her explanations were crisp and clear and she introduced strategies and various tips for the test day. I increased my score by 130 points and I would recommend Hallie to anyone looking to improve their scores in the SAT.Katie, 7 lessons with Hallie
Son's confidence is building.
Hallie is assisting my son with Geometry Regents Review as he is retaking the 10th grade Regents in 3 weeks. Yesterday was our 2nd session and with the one on one time and attention my son is answering some questions immediately when looking at them. Hallie is working on problem areas and seems very patient. I'll write again after we get his regents grade. I'm sure we'll see the improvement we're looking for. Great tutor so far!Clare, 5 lessons with Hallie
Very patient and understanding of my son's needs
Hallie and my son work very well together. After only a few lessons she was able to establish his strengths and weaknesses. We feel that our son is progressing nicely with Hallie's help.Jana, 17 lessons with Hallie
I feel so lucky to have picked Hallie from so many tutors! She was always promt, patient with my son and was always on top of what my son needed to do to succeed. And succeed he DID! I'm so grateful for all of her help! I would recommend her to everyone!Teri, 11 lessons with Hallie
Excellent tutor for teens with learning differences. Very patient.
Hallie worked with our son for almost 3 months once a week to prepare for the ACT exam. She was punctual, thorough, patient and professional. Our son benefited tremendously from Hallie's teaching style. On his first try, he received a composite score much higher than anyone expected largely because of his comfort with the exam which decreased his anxiety and the confidence that he brought to the test because of his preparation with Hallie.Marie, 11 lessons with Hallie
Hallie is a very knowledgeable tutor with great communication skills coupled with a lovely, easy going personality! My son, who is an 8th grader, responded quickly to her methods of asking thoughtful questions for him to draw insightful conclusions for himself rather just rattling off answers. Hallie has a way of engaging his full attention, keeping him focused on any of the material they are covering. Additionally, she has introduced new ways for organizing his information to better his studying skills while preparing for exams. This has shown to be immediately effective!! Hallie is an excellent tutor who fosters encouragement while reinforcing important subject matter. I would highly recommend her.Leslie, 5 lessons with Hallie
