Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I continuously tutor my students through the school year and I have successfully prepared more than ten students for Regents. I have tutored and prepared students for Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trig, Geometry, Physics, Biology, Earth and Space Science Regents. Every one of my students have passed their Regents, often with honors. I had one student that had previously failed a Regents exam and with my help, he passed his next retest. I have a strong, proven track record of successful preparation of Regents.

College Counseling

Having successfully admitted to three of the most selective schools (Princeton, Columbia, Yale) in the nation, I have a knack for identifying which traits top college find most attractive and presenting in such a way that increase college competitiveness. Over the last decade, I have helped students get into:

Stanford
Columbia
Emory
McGill
NYU
Bates

and many more!

Amazing Tutor!

I only worked with Tonia last year for about a month, but in that time my SAT scores went from 590 (reading), 580 (math), and 590 (writing) from the June SAT, to a 680 (reading), 630 (math), and 650 (writing) from the October SAT! I now attend one of my top choice colleges where I was admitted early action and am very satisfied with my SAT results. Tonia helped me understand concepts with clear me
