10 years of teaching at top NYC exam school, dual masters in English Education/theater ed

Methodology

I have two masters degrees from NYU in English Education and Theater education (4.0 GPA); I have 10 years of experience teaching the SAT and Shakespeare to high school students at one of the top exam high schools in NYC. Additionally, I have been teaching ACT, SAT and subject exams for various tutoring companies for 10 years. I genuinely love pre-teens and teenage kids, and believe that the key to improving is really listening to individual's learning styles, and helping to create a plan based on individual student's specific needs.

Background

Please see above.
Ive taught over 2,000 students in my 10 years of classroom experience (170 students a year, plus private tutoring clients:) and I pride myself on creating an individualized plan for each student based on his or her personal learning style. My track record is stellar. Across the board, every student I have worked with on an individual basis has improved vastly, and most importantly, has become more confident in the subject matter and in themselves.
