I've been teaching SAT preparation for 10 years and my students have increased their SAT scores over 500 points from their initial scores.

I create a personalized daily syllabus that caters to each student's individual strengths and weakness, and check in with my students daily to make sure that they are completing their homework assignments and have no questions.

My program is rigorous and demanding, but leads to significantly higher scores very quickly. I do not give my students a chance to slack off or to stop doing their homework assignments because students are required to enter when they have completed their homework assignments, their scores, and their vocabulary words daily through a virtual tracking system that I have created.

I provide a book list including Collegeboard and Kaplan books, though can work with whatever books students already have. I incorporate technology to keep students engaged.

I can't wait to begin!

Amazing so far!
Gabriel
Leona is an exceptional teacher. From the very beginning of our lesson she made me feel comfortable with getting to the root cause of the mistakes that I’ve made on past GRE exams. She is easy to work with and didn’t waste a moment of our time. I felt relaxed and the content that I was shaky on before we started the lesson was made clear and I feel more confident than I’ve ever felt in answer the specific questions we went over, which were quite a few. Extremely grateful. I’m also happy that she assigned homework before our next lesson. It really helps gauge progress. Excellent teacher!
Matthew H.
Leona has been my life coach for several sessions now and I could not more highly recommend her. Depending on what information she is given beforehand, she will research the situation of the particular student (what career field they are considering for example) and bring what she has learned to the session. She then will listen intently to the student to find out what they want and what is most important to them. After that she will make excellent recommendations designed to maximize the chance that the student will succeed. After having several sessions with her, I can confidently say that every piece of advice she gives leads to a positive outcome if followed. For these reasons, I wholeheartedly recommend her.

About Marcia

Would you like to be able to speak English with others? Do you want to understand what you read? Would you like to be able to write your thoughts so others can understand you? If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions, then you have found the right teacher. Hello there! My name is Marc

In 2013 and 2014, I took English classes with Marcia Albergo. Marcia was a very different kind of teacher. Unlike other teachers, she fostered a love for the language. She encouraged everyone in the classroom to reach their potential. Her method of teaching was also different than the other teachers I had. She used a variety of materials that not only helped us to learn English, but also encouraged our desire to learn. She covered a variety of topics and subjects that held the interest of the students in the classroom. Whether it was learning new words on each new page of a book or new expressions, I was challenged to learn the English language in a variety of ways. I believe she did a good job as a teacher because I was actually learning more than just English. I was learning things about the world that I never knew before. Thanks to her method of teaching, I have learned English well. Marcia was my favorite teacher.
Danute
I have take lessons from Marcia several years ago and highly recommend you take lessons from her as well. She helped improve my English greatly, because she is very professional teacher. Marcia always well organized and prepared. She use effective teachings methods. Gramma exercises, verbs conjugation, colloquialisms, expressions, discussions helps me become a fluent speaker.
She can connect to her students on multiple levels and give for them support. Marcia is very responsible and extremely helpful, she always answered in all my questions. Marcia is a great teacher and friend.
Thank you so much.
Elizabeth
I am currently a student at the University of Maryland double majoring in Finance and Management with an Entrepreneurship Track. I am originally from Peru. I came to the United States looking for a better future. The fact that I am in school is due to all the help that Marcia gave me with my ESL (English as a Second Language) classes. While I was taking ESL classes, I wanted to give up, but Marcia believed in me and encouraged me to persevere. Marcia has a personality that everyone will like. She makes her classes challenging but is always ready to help you overcome those problems. There are no words to describe how thankful I am to Marcia, for all her patience, encouragement, willingness, sacrifice and understanding that she provided, as I learned the English language. More importantly, she became my friend and guided me through my path in life.

Adam is a really great listener and excellent source of thought provoking, well timed input that has really helped me develop and improve my story organically without changing its intention with strong suggestions as most people's feedback often attempts to do. If you're looking for a hand in finding your own voice and to strengthen your writing skills or excellent constructive feedback for your story then look no further.
David
Adam Gaines is a godsend. I was really lucky to have his guidance over the years which helped my craft and dedication to the art of writing greatly. He is a proven writer with legitimate credits but also, he actually cares. He is always ready to help and takes your material seriously which is most important when you want honest feedback and guidance. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of films, screenwriting, and the industry that is both impressive and beneficial. He is a wonderful friend and mentor who will always have a great recommendation or suggestion ready for your work and/or career. Adam is an extremely open individual with an immense passion for film and the craft of screenwriting which becomes infectious. That trait is crucial since it keeps you driven to keep learning and grow. He is also an excellent conversationalist with his own voice which is truly refreshing. Highly recommend.
Shadia
Adam gives you insightful comments on how to make you a better writer. He knows what good dialogue sounds like and with a couple suggestions you instantly know how to re-work your writing to give it a natural flow.

"I have been doing tutoring with William for a couple weeks now and he is amazing at guiding me through the bumpy road of AP Physics. Although communication means can be a bit difficult since I was a newbie to the whole "online tutoring" thing, I realized that it was worth the struggle. Before, I had very little knowledge on the subject and did not understand most of what I was doing. William was very patient and explained every step to getting the solution on the endless problems I gave him, plus he knew every answer without even thinking twice! Even though I have a very tight schedule, he is super understanding about my constant changes in tutoring times. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a very polite and helpful tutor for physics!!!"
