Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended

Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

Monica is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and my son loved her from the first day. She has an easygoing demeanor and she makes math fun for him; she also sends a bunch of worksheets for him to work on in between. My son is entering 4th grade and I wanted him to work on some preview math skills before starting schoo. Monica was the perfect person I was looking for to work with him.

Critical reading and reading comprehension stem from critical thinking skills. When tutoring children in reading, I try to use the Socratic method of teaching as much as possible so they can find the answers to questions by themselves and the right answers make sense to them. More importantly, I encourage them to enjoy reading and explore their own creativity. Online tools like ReadTheory and Quill (aligned to the Common Core curriculum) help me assess their reading levels and see which key concept areas they are struggling with. For school or test prep, I teach older students the most straightforward strategies to quickly and confidently find the answers in a passage or text. I also work with them to break down complex material into manageable pieces so they can better understand what they are reading.

About Natalie

For over 10 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I want to help you help yourself. I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn any subject and how much harder it is to find the right teacher. Now I explain the same concepts I've mastered to countless children and adults who need m

My son has been working with Natalie on SAT practice tests, mainly on the English portion of the SAT. Her style of teaching is to help him thinking through the problems and the ways to tackle them. So at the end of the day, my son is learning the tools to solve a problem/answer a question correctly. When he is doing the tests himself, Natalie’s approach is stuck with him. Overall, his time in Natalie’s class has been well spent. I am also glad to see that with all these remote learning at his school, he is able to get one-on-one attention every week to truly learn something and get him prepared for SAT.
Lynne
My 14 year old daughter worked with Natalie weekly over a 2 month period to prep for the SSAT and HSPT. She did a fabulous job helping my daughter prepare; she was super knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. My daughter has so much confidence going into her tests, thanks to Natalie. We highly recommend her!!!

My experience in the humanities includes a wide array of teaching and learning experiences. My time at Harvard, in high school, in personal studies, and over many tutoring experiences, has prepared me to tutor in English and Language Arts at the elementary, middle, and high school ages. I have experience tutoring students aiming for mastery in spelling, vocabulary, writing, grammar, and reading comprehension. I have worked with students on regular as well as AP coursework.

Currently an undergraduate at Harvard, I have long enjoyed sharing both my love of learning and the reserve of strategies that I've build up for overcoming academic challenges. In my experience, successful tutoring hinges on a flexible and dynamic teaching style, honed to each student's unique combination of strengths and struggles. There are many different ways to understand any concept or learn any skill. As a tutor, my goal is to find the unique approach that works for my student; we may not find it on the first

Sophia has been my tutor for all essay writing assignments and tasks for the past several years (at least 5 years), which includes coursework and application essays. She is extremely professional, kind, gentle, knowledgeable, and adapts her teaching style in a very tailored way to the student she is working with. In my experience, she is absolutely unique in the way in which she can take the essay content or structure that a student has in mind and, without throwing it out, put herself into the student's reference frame, and guide the student to rework or reframe it into a polished essay; moreover, even when this process requires significant changes, she manages to be empowering of the student the entire time, actually building their confidence while guiding them to improve their work. I say this from significant personal experience receiving exactly this kind of guidance from Sophia. I think part of what allows her to do this is she genuinely remains kind and humble the entire time, so her critiques and guidance are easy to accept and do not come across as harsh or in any way demeaning of the work I had done before meeting with her.

I should also mention that, having read some of her own writing, she is an exceptional writer herself and has significant experience in writing and tutoring analytical, creative, and scientific writing (I have come to her for help with all three types!). She also has a terrific intuition for how to structure an essay in a given context and purpose, which is something I particularly struggle with. As a final note, I would add that Sophia naturally teaches one how to write while guiding you to improve a particular essay, so you end up picking up her skill and experience as you work with her.

Having tried other tutors and attended writing workshops, etc., I can say with confidence that I have never found another writing tutor who comes close to Sophia--including in the quality of the finished products she helps create, degree to which she improves a student's own overall writing and organizational ability, and the way in which she tailors her approach to fit what is needed for a particular student, assignment, and even particular essay draft.
