I have been teaching elementary school for 13 years. I have been successful with students at all levels.
I am a senior at the Lawrence Woodmere Academy in Woodmere and live in Lynbrook. I have a 4,72 GPA (of 4,00) and a 1580 SAT, am applied to Stanford and applying to Ivies. In terms of AP courses, I am currently enrolled in AP English Language and Composition, AP Spanish Language and Culture, AP Calculus BC, AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism, and AP Physics C: Mechanics. In the past, I took AP World History, AP United States History, and AP English Literature and Composition, and scored a 5 on all three. I am very proficient in maths, sciences, English, and Spanish, especially up to and including the junior year level, including PSAT and SAT prep. I am a PSAT/NMSC Commended National Merit Scholar and have contributed to the Lynbrook Chapter of the National Honor Society and Tri-M Music Honor Society. I tutored middle school during freshman year and I now tutor elementary to eleventh grade. I am the oldest of seven boys and two girls, and I have ample experience with child relations, care, and even babysitting. I also train for basketball. I am a third year Varsity Starter, 6'9" power forward and play for New York Lightning Elite. I train at Sportime in Lynbrook but am open to other facilities. I am flexible with my rates and if there are extenuating circumstances, we will work it out. Feel free to contact me via my gmail, "johnmalinka"
