Elenea established an easy rapport with my daughter. They clicked very quickly which made my daughter receptive to her instruction. I feel Elena has a vast knowledge of the Italian language and prepared my daughter very well for the FALC (NYS-regents equivalent). My only regret is that we didn't find her earlier in the school year. My daughter really liked her.

"Love to bring lessons Alive - Multisensory Teacher"
As a Kindergarten Teacher, I taught in a multicultural environment in Elmont. My greatest accomplishment with this class was seeing the students grow into beginning readers. I enjoy teaching the younger grades and challenging them. I truly enjoy teaching from picture books, which are rich in vocabulary and words that challenge the student. Some of the well-known authors I have used are Jan Brett, Marc Brown, Eric Carle, Tomie DePaola, Marcus Pfister and Audry Wood.

Kenneth tutored our son to prepare him for taking the ASVAB. He returned our inquiry for tutoring services promptly allowing us to begin quickly. He was very knowledgeable about the exam itself and had us prepare before the first session so that no time would be wasted, (as a parent I really appreciate this since tutoring services are not cheap). He was always on time and sensitive to when he might be losing my son and was able to refocus him quickly. But the proof is always in the results, our son scored Alpha Candidate bringing his afqt score from the 46 he had on the practice test to a 68, (after only 11 hours of tutoring). We were very pleased with our experience and would recommend him highly.

"Specializing in ASVAB, AFQT, AFOQT."
When I am working with a student, young or old, I respect the fact that no two students learn the same way. This is key to quality learning. I have also found that it takes great patience to tutor an individual.
While I was a student, I faced various struggles. Most often these struggles were due to boredom. I was often considered advanced while in school but I did not always apply myself. Teachers did not usually take the time to make the class interesting to an advanced student. Consequ... ... More
Steven is an outstanding tutor. I really struggled with Calculus II. I had five tutors (not from Wyzant) before Steve who did not understand the complex math. Steve was incredibly knowledgeable. He also insisted that I learn the material thoroughly. His lessons were excellent. He is not just fantastic at math, he is a great teacher. I was able to get the grade I needed to graduate my engineering program. Thanks Steve.
