Bio

Please note - since I use a holistic approach and do not condone cramming as a study technique, I am not the tutor for last minute test prep. Please allow at least 2 days before a school test and at least 3 months before a standardized test to see real results. Though I have worked miracles in the past, so when in doubt, please inquire!

Please note - since I use a holistic approach and do not condone cramming as a study technique, I am not the tutor for last minute test prep. Please allow at least 2 days before a school test and at least 3 months before a standardized test to see real results. Though I have worked miracles in the past, so when in doubt, please inquire!

I have been a professional tutor for the past 6 years. My specialties are the ACT/SAT (I scored in the 99th percentile for these), SSAT/ISEE and supplementary math help. I get results: just recently I had another student take her ACT composite score from 22 to 33. My average points increase for the ACT is 4-6 points (composite! which is huge) and SAT/SSAT is 250. I enjoy working with my students and find that they connect well to my warm, engaging, and energetic personality. I love being a mentor and I am overjoyed when I see them succeed!

I am a graduate of Columbia University (4 semesters Dean's List and a GPA of 3.71) with a BA in psychology, and a professional actress who has appeared on Broadway, television and film.

Unlike most recent college graduates, I have worked in highly stressful environments since I was 10 years old. I understand the pressure and responsibility of completing tasks efficiently and capably. My self-determination and focus enabled me to attain a 4.3 GPA in high school while often performing eight shows a week. I earned two 5s and a 4 on my APs and a 34 on my ACT while rehearsing for a Broadway show. At Columbia, I was on the Dean's List multiple semesters while performing as a lead role in an Off-Broadway musical (I was additionally starring in a workshop of a new musical for a month as well). I graduated with a 3.7 cumulative GPA.

I know that my aptitude, communication skills, and positive attitude will help your child succeed!

Theater

I have been a professional actress since I was eleven and have performed in numerous regional and Off-Broadway shows. I was in the original Broadway cast of Spring Awakening and can be heard on the Dear Evan Hansen cast album (and in the show every night!). I have studied with the best acting teacher and voice teacher in the city and know firsthand how to give an excellent audition.

I've been tutoring elementary school students for five years now and have worked with second graders -- sixth graders. I have helped students with their homework, prepare for tests, and strengthen their skills over the summer. I am patient, understanding, and tailor my approach to each individual student. Especially at this age, positive reinforcement and confidence is super important, so I pride myself on being my students' personal cheerleader! I've also worked with student with learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD with much success.

Voice (Music)

I have been singing since I could talk and singing professionally since I was 11 years old. I have studied with the top tier voice teachers in New York City (aka the country), and have found that singing is an athletic, full body experience and should be treated as such! Thus, I focus on full body exercises that will help free up your voice. We will also talk about vocal hygiene so you will never have to worry about losing or damaging your voice!

Math Tutor

Remy is terrific. She is super efficient and always comes to sessions with a great attitude and my kids love working with her. We highly recommend Remy. Thank you.

Marc, 17 lessons with Remy

Engaging math tutor

Remy immediately struck up a good rapport with my 10-year-old daughter during the first tutoring session. She helped her develop a clear strategy to approach each problem. I look forward to see how she progresses in future sessions.

Crocker, 2 lessons with Remy

Awesome tutor!

Remy is very smart and hard-working. She cared about my daughter’s success on her test. My daughter felt very comfortable the first time she met her. Remy is a fantastic tutor!

Amanda, 7 lessons with Remy

Committed, thoughtful and highly skilled

Remy assisted my daughter with her ISEE prep 1-2 times per week over the last several months. Remy had just the right balance of discipline, skill, compassion and inspiration. My daughter is not always easy to coach and often thinks she knows better and that she's "got it". Remy was very clear about what it would take for her to increase her scores but remained supportive and committed throughout the process - even when my daughter may not have been pulling her weight. Remy was no nonsense while still being likeable and easy to work with, and she was not afraid to tell it like it is. My daughter appreciated Remy's teaching style, and commented on what a "great teacher" Remy is. On practice exams, my daughter was able to raise her scores upward to 3 stanine points in some cases. Had my daughter put her 100% in, I have no doubt that she would have increased her scores even further. We felt that Remy was there with us the whole time - teaching and cheering. I would unequivocally recommend Remy! She knows what it takes, and she delivers!

Amy, 16 lessons with Remy

Warm, happy with a wonderful way of explaining and teaching the material

Remy was a bright light in the test prep process. My son found her one on one technique with empathetic and fun approach very helpful. Her way of explaining and helping him to understand and material was done in a gentle and fun way and helped him to get a better understanding. I am so happy we have found Remy.

Marjorie, 18 lessons with Remy

Excellent tutor

Patient and knowledgeable, Remy worked very well with my son. She was able to assess his learning style with accuracy and gave him expert strategies on how to learn better. We look forward to many more sessions with Remy.

Editha, 3 lessons with Remy

Great so far!

I've been working intensively with Remy for almost a full week, and I'm so grateful that I found her!!! I can afford to work with her and get the same quality lessons that I would with a big NY company like Advantage Prep. Can't wait to keep working with her!
