30min increments: For =< 60mins lesson, you have to come near to my place; I will come to your place at >= 90mins.

The reading lessons I provide are mostly centered on Test Prep objectives, e.g. GRE/SAT/ACT Reading Comprehension, etc.

(IMPORTANT: Please do NOT book any lessons without confirming with me if we have a match in schedule. I have other obligations besides tutoring so if you do not have a flexible schedule, I recommend other tutors that will match your budget and schedule.)

About Rod

I specialize in Test Prep (i.e. SHSAT, SAT/ACT, GRE, among others) and tutor a number of academic subjects in Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Linear Algebra), Statistics and Science (especially Physics). I have bachelor's and master's degrees in electronics engineering and b

I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!

I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

With a degree in English Literature, reading comprehension has been the most important aspect of my academic career. I know how to help you confidently navigate and come to a more complete and nuanced understanding of what you are reading, the main morals, motifs, and main purpose of each piece you read.

Our focus will of course be on coming to a complete and correct understanding of exactly what you are reading. Depending on the level you are at, our sessions will eventually inspire you to develop your own bold and unique opinions on everything that you read going forward.

Nick worked absolutely miracles with my very-reluctant-to-learn 13 year old boy. He kept him engaged and built a real relationship of trust - and helped my son grow as a writer, reader, and editor. I absolutely recommend Nick as a fantastic teacher and tutor.

Nick is a great teacher for two of my teenage boys. He showed them step-by-step writing techniques. Highly recommended!
Christine
My daughter has been working with Nick for almost a year. She has always been behind in Reading and Writing and I was concerned about the jump from Middle to High School. Before Nick she was getting C's in these subject but now as a High School Freshman she has been consistently getting A's. Nick has been a godsend to our daughter.

He was very helpful in setting me up for my first lesson.
Yah D.
Wow! Wow! Wow! This was truly money and time well spent. I went into this lesson with no expectations, rather just with the hope of connecting well with a piano instructor that was not only well versed but could ease me into being a student. Paul is a rare treasure. He exceeded all my hopes of what I hoped to gain from my lessons. I would highly recommend him for any piano student. If you're looking to be challenged, and learn any genre of music,, don't wait...book your lessons with Paul. Thank you Paul. I'm looking forward to growing as a student.

Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.

Wonderful experience. I think that I’ll be able to improve with him by my side :-)
Konrad R.
I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.
