Do you need a tutor that will not only cover the material but also encourage and inspire? I have an extensive background in working with students in many capacities, both academically as well as holistically. Performing well on a standardized test has a lot to do with state of mind, so in addition to covering the materials, I also focus on helping students deal with stress and anxiety.

Justina worked with my daughter this summer on reading skills in preparation for the MCAT. My daughter has worked with other tutors in the past, but Justina was by far the most knowledgeable, insightful and confidence-boosting coach she had ever had. She clearly diagnosed the active reading skills that needed to be developed, and worked with her on a step by step approach that has improved her mastery of both the main ideas and details of the passages.
In addition, my daughter genuinely looked forward to her sessions with Justina, and commented frequently on how much fun they were able to have, while connecting on challenging material.
We could not recommend a tutor more highly!! Thank you Justina -- you are a special talent and we look forward to keeping our connection with you.

Justina is great! She was very helpful, positive, and encouraging when I was studying to take my second MCAT. She had great tips and resources to help assess my problem areas, and improve my test taking skills. She helped increase my score the second time around. If you really need a verbal tutor, I highly recommend Justina!
I want to thank Justina for the excellent work that she did with both of my children. She helped my son prepare for the verbal section of the MCAT and he received an excellent score. Justina offers hard work and immediate feedback, and this is exactly what my son needed.
She also helped my daughter with college application essays, resulting in excellent pieces, that outline her personality in a very accurate way. I am very glad that my children had the opportunity to work with her. Thank you, Justina.
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.
I've been teaching SAT/ACT prep. MCAT verbal, and GRE since 2006, first with the Princeton Review, then privately. Over the years I've worked with many students in crafting their essays to have their personalities shine through. The essay is the only part of the application where a student can express who they truly are outside of grades/scores/clubs. It's an imperative part of the process and can be the tipping point on an application. I have also completed the common app. for many students and have had students accepted by George Washington, American University, Syracuse, Welsley, Tufts, Loyola, Pace and others. I have also used the Naviance system and can help in all aspects of navigating the application process.
I specialize in MCAT Verbal section only. I taught it for the Princeton Review at the University of Puerto Rico for 6 years. I can teach how to properly work the passages and evaluate your errors in order to get the maximum points on the verbal section. I have extensive experience in helping students come up with an individual strategy to get the most correct answers possible within their personal abilities.
I studied voice at the Boston Conservatory of Music in Boston Mass. I have performed extensively for years both live and recording and have appeared from Lincoln Center to Birdland. I have studied classical opera as well as pop/rock/jazz/blues. I specialize in Breathing techniques as well as song prep. for auditions. Please contact me for further information.
I'm a 200 hour certified Kripalu Yoga teacher with a specialization in stress relief and meditation working with youth. I worked with teenagers in the Juvenile Detention Centers of the South Bronx in NYC through a program called the Lineage Project for many years. Please contact me for more information on how yoga can aid in the academic success of your child.
