I work with students on SAT Reading, SAT Writing & Language and Essay. Students that work with me should expect significant improvement in one session.

For Reading, I teach time management, reading strategies and the appropriate way to search for the correct answers. For W/L, time management is key, as is an understanding as to how to approach this section. Knowledge of grammar (I teach this) is critical to this section, but so is reading.

I work with students and teach them how to decipher the passage for the Essay and how to write a five paragraph essay in the short time frame that will score well.

About Rebecca

Hi-I have been working with students for more than five years-mostly face to face but have recently moved to online lessons. I believe that each student I work with has the potential to achieve greatness. If they are preparing for the ACTs/SATs, I make sure that my students know that these tests ar

I can't say enough about the knowledge and support Rebecca provided for my daughter while preparing for college exams. Rebecca offered test insights and clues to breakdown difficult passages and tricky answers - boosting my daughter's scores significantly! Happy to share that my daughter is accepted by her first choice college. Rebecca is professional, tenacious, positive and a joy to work with. Wish I could give her 10 stars!

My name is Milka. I have 5 years of tutoring experience in the sciences and math! I am eager to share my love for science with whomever I tutor. Growing up I have experienced teachers teach a simple topic in a complex way hence, confusing a lot of their students. My aim is to teach in a way that would make students fall in love with the subject rather then scare them away.

About Milka

My name is Milka. I have been tutoring for about 8 years now. I am an MB3 (Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics and Biochemistry) Major. I believe students learn science by doing science, and that my classes are a medium through which my students will learn life skills that are critical for their succ

I remember preparing for college and feeling so stressed about taking the SATs. Sure, there’s a study book but it’s huge and can be so overwhelming. Some schools offer SAT prep classes, but for me, I have always done better with one-on-one attention. In being your SAT tutor, I hope to make this process less overwhelming. I will teach you test-taking techniques, what kind of questions to expect, and essay prep.

About Ozioma

Hello there! My name is Ozi! I am a native of Nigeria, but raised in Atlanta, Ga. I love music, photography, and travel, and would love to be your tutor!

What do you call a teacher who will not hush about adding?! ...
A teacher who can't keep his Math shut!

Hello!
My name is Myreah, but you may call me Mya. I'm no teacher. I'm no instructor. I'm no professor. Nope, too serious! I'm just a silly wife and mom of eight who homeschooled three of her sons and got them moved from special education to regular ed classes in less than a month... They are now back to attending school in a physical setting. I have an autistic son who is in first grade, thriving, and at the head of his class. I also have twin sons who are in 3rd grade. They have special physical and mental challenges due to being delivered via an emergency C-Section three months before their due date. Despite their challenges and struggles since birth, they are now eight-years-old and doing really well in school. Their teachers have no concerns. I took my boys who still could not read or count in first grade due to challenges to now reading (& at a nice pace), writing ...

I saw that Myreah was very passionate about helping my grandkids succeed. She has done an excellent job teaching them phonics and helping them learn to read. They all are striving and doing exceedingly well with reading and has greatly improved with their spelling, which is wonderful!

She was super encouraging. My daughter almost likes her more than me and she improved in her school work soooo much. Money well spent.

My son took Laurel ‘a writing lesson yesterday and he likes the teacher. He realized his problems in writing. Today, when he was doing his homework, he told me that he applied the skills Laurel taught him to his writing. Thank you very much. I hope he can learn more from you.

"Many tutors are competent and knowledgeable in their subjects, some are also very good teachers as well. However, very few tutors are innovative in their teaching approach. Maurice is just that. He talked to my son and figured out not only what my son does not know, but even more importantly, what his learning style is and the best customized way to deliver missing knowledge to him. Maurice went outside the subject matter and used learning games and tricks to efficiently deliver the info to make sure my son also retained that knowledge. No one has unlimited time and resources; it is very important to me that they are used wisely and efficiently. Thank you, Maurice, for helping us."
