Bruce Alan M.

Melville, NY

In addition to my academic and industry background in mathematics and science (and my 30 years part-time teaching as an Adjunct Professor at several colleges), I am also a professional writer (with thousands of pages published) and a journal-editor/rewrite-specialist, as well as a radio broadcaster hosting two weekly talk shows. My communications skills have enabled me to help many students improve in both reading comprehension and creative writing, as well as proofing and rewrite of research papers, articles for publications, etc.

I was trained and certified by both leading "test-prep" companies (TPR and Kaplan) to teach and tutor their strategies and techniques for improving scores on so-called "standardized" tests (including PSAT/SAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, etc., as well as Regents, AP, GED, SSAT, ASVAB, NYSTCE, and Civil Service exams). During the past several years, I have successfully helped many students raise their scores substantially on all portions of the ACT exam.

Professor BAM is a terrific tutor. He's patient, soft spoken, and brought a wealth of knowledge to the table which enabled my daughter to connect the dots in the subject of Earth Science. I would highly recommend him!

Professor BAM was very patient with my son, and was able to teach him material that he found very difficult to learn in a traditional classroom. There was constant communication amongst the student, the parent, and the tutor which was a recipe for success. I highly recommend Bruce.

From the moment we met Bruce, he was very organized and had an ability to grab the attention of our son before moving on to the next step. Our son felt comfortable with Bruce from day one and looks forward to seeing him for his weekly tutoring. We feel fortunate to have found Bruce and have him help our son reach his goal in writing. Thank you, Bruce!!

Ted Y.

Flushing, NY

Proven strategies that work!
Guidance through every section!
Simple steps to higher grades!

About Ted

Dear: Students with the desire to succeed,

The only thing standing between you and your future is the lack of direction. Every single individual has the potential to succeed, but not knowing which path to take is the true challenge. That is where an educated and experienced mentor comes into play. Hi, my name is Ted You and I am an experienced veteran in the academic field with the knowledge to help an individual follow the path to success.
I have been teaching for well over 8 years but unlike the average public school teacher, my experience comes from working in various test
prep schools as well as accelerated after school programs. The training that I have gone through differs from the public school environment because it was a service that was offered with expectations from the parents and students. Therefore, if you need an experienced professional with the skills to train bright young minds, look no further. If you're ready to begin, let's begin!

Nathan B.

New York, NY

If you're shooting for the top schools, I'm the tutor you want. I got the ACT scores (36 Math and Science, 35 Reading, 34 English) that will get you into the most competitive colleges or get plenty of scholarship money from a less well-known school. The ACT/SAT is the single most important test of your high school career, and I'd love to help you achieve your goals.

About Nathan

Hey! My name is Nathan and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching since 2011 and have loved helping my students pass introductory undergraduate physics, improve their math grades, and learn about the secrets of the universe. I go to Columbia University and am working towards a degree in physics. I'm fun, patient, and enthusiastic, and I hope to share my love of learning with you. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Nathan and Felix had great chemistry and Felix really enjoyed working with Nathan. Nathan was calm and knowledgeable and helpful. Mostly, I needed Nathan to help Felix stay focus and on task while I was not home. But also, I was glad that Felix had an older fellow, like a really nice older brother to hang out with after school, so that he wasn’t a lonely latchkey kid.

It is a good idea to be really clear about when sessions need to take place. Because of the flexible nature of both our and Nathan’s schedule, sometimes signals got crossed and we expected him to be there, but he was not aware. Overall, we were happy with Nathan and would gladly recommend him as a tutor.
