I've had about 3 lessons with Amrita so far and she's really great. Accounting topics that professors talk about in class that can be hard at times Amrita breaks down and makes it really easy to understand. She definitely knows her stuff and you can definitely depend on her to teach you and help you in every way. I highly recommend her!!! :)

Though I teach for a living while completing my degree, I'm also a writer. Research and analytical writing appeal to me especially, not to mention fiction.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 re

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.

Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .

Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

Private Writing Teacher

Award-winning, professional author, specializing in novels, short stories, and personal essays. The ugly truth about writing is that it's hard work. No one starts out as a great writer. Sure, raw talent is helpful, but it only gets you so far. The good news is that writing is a craft that can be learned; the even better news is that an experienced teacher can save you an enormous amount of time and frustration on the road to mastering the craft. I tailor my lessons to fit your individual strengths and weaknesses as a writer; I always try to give you concrete, detailed advice, along with useful exercises to help you become the writer you want to be. Send me a note if you're interested, and we can see if we're a good match.

About Bart

I'm a novelist by trade, and have published five novels. My first novel (LEAVE MYSELF BEHIND) won the Alex award from the American Library Association in 2004, and has recently been translated into Italian. My second novel, THE BROTHERS BISHOP, has been translated into Dutch. I previously taught

If you or your child is struggling in writing, it can be a daunting task to write an essay or story to communicate a point, or to write a persuasive speech that wins audiences over. If you can write, you can go anywhere in life! Much of our schools are struggling with core writing standards. This requires much outside tutoring. If you or someone you know is struggling in writing, I can help with topics, essays, grammar, subject verb and sentence agreements, punctuation, vocabulary, spelling, and much more! I can also tutor in MLA format for research papers. I'm available in person and online.

About Cody

With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Creative Writing: Not That Different from Academic Writing?

Think creative writing is all that different from writing a research paper in class? You might be surprised! Read on as New Milford, NJ tutor Matthew H. explains...   Creative writing tips seem to be counterintuitive; how can someone tell someone else how to be creative? The truth is that the secret to writing any good creative literature is not really that different from what you need for a really great academic paper: strong structure.

5 Tips for Writing Historical Fiction

Imagine transporting yourself into another time — pretty cool, right? This is exactly what readers get to do with the historical fiction genre. These kinds of novels invite readers to escape to a different world in a different time.  However, when it comes to writing a historical novel, it takes a lot more than just jotting down some words on the page. You have to set the scene and create a convincing setting, where you readers can immerse themselves and lose track of time. You have to m …
