For over 11 years, I’ve helped elementary school, middle school, and high school students prepare for all sections of the Elementary Level SSAT, Middle Level SSAT, and Upper Level SSAT. In addition to reviewing SSAT verbal and SSAT math concepts, students master analogies, build their vocabulary knowledge, sharpen their reading skills, and learn the art of solving word problems. I also guide them through the SSAT essay/short story section so their writing really shines and sets them apart from other applicants. Whether students invest months of time in their test prep or spend a few lessons with me to improve their test performance, they raise their scores and become better test takers.

About Natalie

For more than 11 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I help students learn more and make progress in their studies. I don't just teach them how to count, read, and write: I show them how to build on their skills and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is t

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.

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!!!

I love working with beginner and intermediate musicians from those starting off in their school bands to adults wanting to reconnect to their instrument, or learn for the first time!
I've taught for more than 20 years. I structure lessons with a foundation of the basics, exercises and etudes, and literature. Music should be a rewarding journey that I want to share with you!

I've been teaching flute and band instruments for 20+ years and my students have gone on to enjoy making music, earning highest ratings at competitions, and having fun. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make your first sounds and as time goes on you'll be able to play pieces of music you enjoy. I specialize in focusing on basic skills which will allow you to grow as a musician as time goes on. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Mitzi

My musical journey started when I was 9 years old when I decided that I wanted to learn to play the flute. I'll never forget my first flute teacher, and I would love to help you reach your musical goals! Recently I have had the opportunity to open my own music studio in my house, and I am thrille

I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

About Guifang

Currently, I'm a full time Mandarin Chinese teacher at a school in Phoenix. I teach K-8 grades students Chinese speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation through presentations, visual arts, songs and other various types of activities.

We could not be happier with the lessons, preparation and structure. Our child enjoys the study and is enthused. The ease with which virtual sessions and textbooks are integrated is refreshing and aligns with what we expect outside of our local school district

Guifang is an outstanding teacher. I started at zero and did not know where to start. She has planned out my learning journey and got me up to speed really fast. She makes the lessons fun and engaging. The lessons have been tailored to my needs.

Guifang's experience as a teacher shines through in her lessons.

Teaching music is truly one of my passions. Each lesson is personalized towards the students goals, while simultaneously building a solid musical foundation. Music is a great medium for self-expression, and it is in my best interest to help my students achieve their fullest potential as a guitarist and musician.

About Ryan

I began my musical training in Huntington Beach, California, guided by esteemed blues musician Walter Trout. Upon moving to New Jersey in 2010, I was gradually exposed to the New York metropolitan area jazz scene, becoming enamored with it. This passion led me to the New Jersey Performing Arts Cente

My 7 year old son has been taking online lessons with Ryan for over a year now. Ryan is absolutely the most patient and knowledgeable instructor we could have ever hoped for. He really gets his students and their needs. I wasn't sure how virtual lessons would go for my young son, but honestly it has been awesome! I can't say enough good things about Ryan and his teaching style!
