Tyler L. is the founder and principal instructor of Examine It Tutoring Services, which works in and around the various boroughs of New York. Examine It works with a wide range of students, all with unique educational backgrounds. We focus on developing a student’s problem solving ability rather than content memorization.
Tyler is a former environmental engineer at Air Pollution Characterization & Control. APCC is based out of Hermon, ME and focuses on air pollution compliance testing for industrial facilities. While there, he learned importance of applying abstract engineering concepts to real life and often irregular situations. He also learned the value of problem solving in real time and conveys that importance to his current students.
Tyler graduated magna cum laude from the University of Maine with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a Mathematics minor. He currently resides in Manhattan.
I started tutoring on my own approximately nine years ago and I decided to join the WyzAnt community in order to reach out to more students. I have tutored over 500 hours through Wyzant to date and I hold a 4,9/5,0 star rating. Feel free to read through feedback from my previous students to get a better idea of my tutoring qualifications.
My total SAT score was 2170 - M770 CR700 W700. My composite ACT score was 34 - M35 E34 R34 S31. My GRE score was Verbal 158 (78th percentile), Quantitative 167 (94th percentile), and Analytical Writing 5,5 (98th percentile). I specialize in SAT and ACT preparation for high school students. I am also interested in tutoring college students preparing for the GRE general test. For test preparation, I assign a decent amount of homework each week and I spend the majority of my sessions going over the questions my students answer incorrectly.
I would like all potential students to understand that the SAT and ACT are not exactly the same, and therefore require different types of preparation. If you have any questions about this, feel free to send me a message. I also put together my own review packets for the SAT and ACT, covering all the main concepts for the math sections and the grammatical concepts for the SAT writing section/ACT English section.
I am also focusing on helping high school and college students write and edit their college admission essays and scholarship essays (for undergraduate or graduate school). I offer face-to-face sessions with students to assist in all phases of the writing process - coming up with a catchy/meaningful idea, planning out the content and structure, and editing the drafts. The rate for these sessions will be my standard rate of $60 per hour.
However, I am also willing to offer assistance via email for students who wish to have their essays edited without meeting face-to-face. The rate for this type of session will vary depending on factors such as the length of the essay, how many rounds of editing are needed, and the overall amount of time that I spend editing the essay. I am willing to discuss a rate that is reasonable for both me and the student/parent.
As far as my cancellation policy goes, I require notice at least 24 hours in advance for a lesson cancellation. If I do not receive adequate notice, I will charge a $25 cancellation fee. This is primarily due to the fact that if I schedule someone for a particular day and time, I am filling that time slot and not allowing other students the chance to take that slot. Therefore, I am losing business by allowing students to cancel at the last minute. However, I offer all of my students 1 last minute cancellation free of charge; subsequent late cancellations will be subject to the $25 fee. The only major exception to this policy is a cancellation due to severe weather conditions, in which case I will not charge a cancellation fee if the lesson is cancelled at the last minute.
While all of my "professional" and "academic" qualities are certainly important, I think it's also necessary for you to understand more about me as a person. I consider myself a "nerd" and I am no longer self-conscious about it - it's who I am. I love school, but aside from that I enjoy reading and writing. To me, the smell of a bookstore is like that of a decadent chocolate cake to many others. Although throughout the school year I typically only engage in academic writing, in my down-time I write poetry and I finished writing my first young adult novel during NaNoWriMo 2016. I'm an athlete. When I was younger I did karate for about 6,5 years and got my black belt. Now, running is one of my passions. I ran my first half-marathon this past March with my Mom in RI. I don't consider myself fast, but the mental reprieve that I experience during a long run is something I could never give up. Finally, during the winter I take pleasure in crocheting. I make hats, blankets, stuffed animals, and anything else I can come up with. Yes, my interests are eclectic. Yes, I'm eccentric. I think that these parts of me make me a better tutor because I'm well-rounded and I'm always trying to come up with new ways to help my students. Also, I think it's important for my potential students and their parents to know more about me than simply my academic abilities.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I hope to hear from you soon!
Featured Review: Great Tutor with extreme patience and creative thinking!! "Curtis is extremely patient and did an incredible job connecting with my daughters. He is very thorough and easy to work with and goes out of his way to be available when needed. He has a well-structured approach that considers their individual needs. He explains problems clearly, quickly identifying where help was needed most, and developed constructive strategies for success. They both really enjoy him and actually look forward to their SAT review sessions! We are very happy with our choice of a tutor!"
About Curtis E:
Within the first two weeks of his sophomore year at Phillips Academy, Andover, Curtis was one of the few students to pass out of the year-long Competence (in writing) requirement. He then continued to stand out in all the English classes meant for juniors and seniors, often receiving the only A+ in the section. Curtis caught the acting bug in college and graduated with a degree in Performance Studies from Northwestern University. Ultimately, however, he felt the pull towards the greatest show on Earth: education.
Apart from teaching and tutoring English standard and honors classes at Somerville High School for seven years, Curtis also teaches SAT and ACT Prep, MCAS, theatre, and public speaking. In his time there and with other organizations, test scores and rankings have skyrocketed.
As a tutor and teacher, Curtis works to student strengths while developing areas that need improvement; he is a firm believer that every student can learn. A literature analysis and writing stickler, he works hard to improve skills and ensure college readiness. Curtis' energy and sense of humor make his sessions popular- he portrays academics in a fun light, akin to what he calls the "mental and spiritual gym" where one learns how to learn while maintaining a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
When not working in education, Curtis continues to pursue acting and is currently penning two screenplays. He loves tennis, guitar, cooking, travel, and, most of all, making his wife and kids giggle.

I did my graduate studies at Harvard University. At Harvard, I specialized in literature and languages and writing. At Harvard I was a member of an admissions committee at taught in the Co-Curricular Program at the Harvard Kennedy School. I have over 30 years of experience in college admissions and preparing students for the SAT Exam. I have won 3 teaching awards including a Harvard Club Award for teaching and public service while at Harvard.
In my work, I realize that each student is unique and the first step is assessing a student's level of competence, understanding their personality and learning style, and their long term goals. I tailor my approach to what will help the student succeed academically and also in life. As the father of four children, I realize how important education is in determining a student's future and I take my work very seriously. As can be seen by student comments on my web page, my students succeed.

I recently graduated Cum Laude from The King's College in New York and am available to help with homework or tutor students in specific subjects. I have experience tutoring students as a teaching assistant and love to help others learn.
I offer lessons in a couple different styles, depending on the goals of the student
- Test Prep (SAT, SHSAT, Regents, finals): we will identify weak points and maximize the student's score as quickly as possible. If a student starts out with minimal knowledge of the material, we can cover the basics much faster than a traditional classroom. I would recommend 2-hour sessions to start
- Through Learning: ideal if we start early during a course. The student will understand all the material covered in class in greater depth, and be slightly ahead of his fellow classmates. I'll also show how the material connects to more advanced or applied topics, that are rarely shown in class (but which become very useful later in a student's career)
- For fun/for a project: more geared towards a computer science project. If the student has an idea for a project, we'll cover the strategy for implementing it, and we'll go over any tricky parts. The student will also learn a variety of tools to make coding more efficient, such as IDE's, debuggers, version control, Linux commands, etc. depending on the project
The point is you will see results and see them fast

Math, Biology, Chemistry, English, SAT, Psychology and Physics lessons - Flushing, NY, USA.
Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I'm an 19-year-old student at NYU. I am currently majoring in English, linguistics and minoring in creative writing.
I've always loved tutoring, and I had much experience with it back in high school. I've worked for the TOEFL Killer Studio for two months, and tutored private SAT lessons in my senior year. The experience helped me greatly develop my ways of teaching. Despite being a non native speaker, I still managed to get high scores on standardized testing, due to my unique skills of solving the questions.
-I grew up in China and had rigorous math training. As a result, I received a 5 on AP Calculus BC, so SAT math was in comparison very easy for me.
-I have spoken mandarin throughout my life. It's my first language.
-I received an 111(I didn't finish the listening because I had to use the bathroom) on my TOEFL, 750 on my SAT reading and a 790 on writing. Also, I've been intensively studying the language since an early age, and I can easily upstage many native speakers.
Please contact me for more info. Looking forward to meeting you!

Hello! My name is Laura and I'm a student at NYU. I received a 1460 on my SAT last year with a breakdown of 790 on the math section and 670 on the reading section. I am very experienced in tutoring SAT and am very familiar with the exam. Since I took my SAT recently, I understand first hand the experience of taking the exam: from how to pace myself, common topics on the exam, and helpful techniques that helped me when I took the exam. I hope to work with you soon!
I am a graduate student at NYU and am currently in the process of obtaining my masters in applied quantitive research methods. I enjoy teaching greatly and have worked with students of all age groups, from elementary school students to adults. I have been tutoring for six years and assisted more than 100 students with high school and college level Mathematics, Chinese, and preparing for standardized tests such as SAT and ACT. I have had incredible success working with students in the past through tailoring my lessons to the student and matching it to their learning style. Through assessing the skill-level of each student, I am able to present the material in the most effective manner.
I attended an international school in China and moved to the United States at the age of 9. My multicultural heritage gave me an edge in learning languages, allowing me to easily pick up Spanish in middle school. Being well versed in Chinese and English makes me a knowledgeable tutor for both Chinese international students wishing to improve their English and American students that desire to learn Chinese. I am the perfect fit if you're looking for a Mandarin or ESOL Tutor.
My years of experience tutoring students in Mathematics allows me to avoid common misconceptions that students make and develop explanations that students can understand easily. I enjoy showing students how different topics relate to each other. By doing so, students are able to develop a deeper understanding of mathematics. A strong Mathematics foundation will greatly benefit students for the rest of their academic career.
My specialties are the SAT and ACT exams. I, myself, have received a 2350 on the SAT and a 35 on the ACT, so I am more than qualified to tutor for these tests. Having received perfect scores on the Math portion of the SAT, ACT, GRE, and SAT Math subject tests, I can show students the commonly asked questions and contents to prepare for on the SAT and ACT Math.
I believe that every student can achieve their goals with a plan that fits them, along with consistent work. Parents have complimented me on my patience and told me that their children have achieved better grades with my guidance. I have a very flexible schedule, so I can easily accommodate your schedule as needed and start immediately.
