Mr. B is very knowledgable & taught my daughter shortcuts & gave insight on how to take the SAT. She feels more confident & hopefully will bring her grade up in comprehension, grammar & essay.
We are in the middle of the college application process. In addition to tutoring for the SAT/ACT, he great insight to some colleges choices for my son. Very helpful!
I care very much about your student and hope he makes precise decisions that make the most of future opportunities.
My daughter needed to check where she stands for the upcoming SAT. Philip was very knowledgeable and he gave her technical ways to attack the questions. We are planning to continue to use him.
Philip taught my two kids SAT reading and writing. They learned a lot after each class with Philip. I also see their grades improve particularly in the writing section.
It was a pleasure working with your kids. They always came prepared and did their homework ahead of time, making efficient use of limited time possible. I am sure they will succeed on their SAT exams. Thank you for sending them my way.
Philip was a great tutor. He really helped my daughter out with her SAT preparation. Thank you for all your help.
We are honored to recommend Mr. Philip B. as a great English teacher for your child. He had started teaching our daughter just before her 7th grade NY State ELA exam and we were very impressed to see the positive impact almost right away. His excellent enthusiastic teaching style eventually helped our daughter score 4 out of 4 in this course, 99th percentile in NY State. Mr. B.’s very convincing and superior teaching style, especially Reading Comprehension tactics, is simply unparalleled. His rapport with the student and parents is very natural and instinctive.
Taking the SAT for the second time we needed to do something different and God led us to this wonderful tutor. My son's scores improved beyond my belief on reading and writing my son improved his score by more than 150 points total putting him above 2000 mark. I am overwhelmed with joy. For the SAT reading and writing Philip is all you NEED!
My daughter has Philip help her on US History AP text prep, as her school does not have AP class. Philip knows the subject very well, as well as test skills. He is a rare find, and he is a keeper. We will go back to him.
My daughter got 5 in US History AP. Thank you very much, Philip.
My son had an English tutor last year (10th grade) exclusively for Essays (every week during his school days) and he try to follow his guidelines. It seems it did not help him much with respect to review comments we received from you.
He is a great tutor who provided good strategies to take SAT exams and also provided very helpful timely tips.
My son got very good marks in essay writing with his help. I highly recommend him.
Very helpful, prompt in response, flexible in his time, enthusiastic and skillful. Has helped my son increase his essay score from 9 to 11 out of 12 in a short time.
Philip is an overall great tutor.
He has an in-depth knowledge with various literature
and has a lot of experience. He motivates students
and encourages to maximize potential.
He is an very competent SAT preparation also.
I highly recommend Philip.
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 have been working on verbal parts with a student in Oceanside with a 92 grade point average who just got his first score back on the ACT which was a 32 out of 36 and he and I both believe he can do even better next time. I have not gotten ACT scores back yet from two other students I have been working briefly with, but both said they were more confident going in partly because of my help in ACT verbal parts.
A student I tutored in standardized test verbal tactics scored a 32 out of 36 on the April 2013 ACT. Recently, a student I tutored only 3 times or so scored a 34 out of 36 overall the November 2013 ACT.
a student who was at trinity school in Manhattan wanted to take the AP US history exam even though no AP. US history class was given at her school. We worked together for a short time. She got a 5 out of 5 on her ap exam and was subsequently accepted early decision at the university of Pennsylvania.
I played Basketball for school teams through junior High school, focusing on defense. I coached my stepdaughter's team to a championship. My intramural high school team won a Championship and defeated the male faculty in front of the whole high school.
A student who I have been working with since the sixth grade recently scored 800 out of 800 in SAT reading comprehension and 780 out of 800 in SAT writing. He was accepted to Dartmouth and his parents gave my recommendation letter credit for his getting into Dartmouth. We are very proud of his skills in English.
Right now I am tutoring a bright young man European history via Skype for an hour. He lives in Westchester County. This week we went over multiple choice questions from the Barron's AP European history book. On his wrong answers, I explained for example why Phillip of Spain was promoting the spread of Catholicism by trying to bringing the Spanish Armada in 1588 to England to depose Queen Elizabeth I, a protestant daughter of Henry the Eighth. Student seemed to quickly understand my explanations. I felt we got pretty much as possible out of the hour we had online. Next we plan to work out of the 5 out of 5 AP European History Book, one that is a bit more focused and more likely to get him to a 5 out of 5 in the short time we have.
My father was an all-state tackle in high school who would not allow me to play football in high school. As a 27 year old, I played semi-pro football for the New York Rams and was written up in New York Magazine in an article on touch football in Central Park as a quarterback with a "fair" arm. I dispute the description and have video to disprove it.
With my background in US History, I have in-home tutored a number of students featuring early American Constitutional History, featuring checks and balances and separation of powers; Civil War, Reconstruction and the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments; the Red Scare after the First World War and the House Un-American Activities Committee; Suffrage and the coming of the 20th Amendment, Prohibition, the Equal Rights Amendment, among other issues.
One of my students recently got a 780 out of 800 on the SAT Writing section and is applying to Ivy League colleges; another of my students received 780 out of 800 on SAT Writing and now attends Princeton University.
I tutor students especially for test prep and have tutored using ISEE and COOP material. I have tutored several students recently, helping them prepare for Catholic High School exams which they passed and got into all the schools they applied for.
I have a knowledge of the most taught works of literature and the major themes and characters. To Kill a Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, Pride and Prejudice, Othello and Macbeth are among the most popular with many of my students whom I help write papers and prepare for exams.
One of my recent students scored 800 out of 800 on SAT reading comprehension and 780 out of 800 in sat writing. I have been working with him since he was in the sixth grade and am very proud of his hard work.
I helped a student with Aspergers pass the American History Regents (which he had failed to pass twice before). He took the test and passed and went onto Nassau Community College. This past spring, I prepared 4 or 5 students prepare for AP American History or AP Euro History. References available on request.
In addition, a few years ago I tutored a student preparing for the English regents and he received a perfect score of a 100, and he wasn't even taking advanced or honors English.I also taught English regents at a yeshiva in Brooklyn and all the students passed the English Regents.
Students I have tutored recently in SAT writing and reading are going to Harvard, Princeton, Dartmouth, U of Chicago, Oberlin, and Boston University. While many or most students score a D (8 out of 12) or worse on the SAT essay, I can virtually guarantee a B plus (10 out of 12) or better. The SAT essay counts for about 10 per cent of the whole SAT exam. I can help. Most of my WyzAnt students give me 5 out of 5 rating. Check my profile and reviews.
I coached the New York observer co-ed softball team for six years. The last year, we went 14 and 0. Subsequently the team with essentially the same personnel went on to win the next two city championships.
I often work with students as young as 5th and 4th grade, some with learning disabilities. To make things easier to remember with English and/or social studies assignments, I have used 3 minute short you tube videos to help explain. After just a few weeks with me, one of my special ed students scored highest in his class on the ELA overall.
A student who had received a 480 out of 800 on the sat world history subject test studied with me twice a week for two months. I started each civilization with her by discussing how each one treated women. we spoke about how Julius Caesar's mother got through life by managing her apartment building in a run down section of Rome. we spoke of how African societies frowned on veiling their women as Islamic societies did because African hunter gatherer societies were more egalitarian. The student took the exam again and got an 800 out of 800 on it and then went on to Harvard.
