New York, NY
Middle School Expert
My name is Pierre.
I am a former substitute teacher for the Board of Education of New York City and I did work for a private tutoring agency in the city. Both experiences allow me to familiarize myself with NYC and US education system.
I like to share my knowledge with young minds and guide them in their effort to achieve the highest grade in middle school, so they can be eligible for the best high schools in the city. As you already know, the scores obtained in 7th grade, especially the ELA and Math scores of the New York State Tests are greatly considered in the high school application. Overall, excellent scores obtained from 5th-7th grades influence, to a great extent, the admission in the best high schools and later the entrance to the best colleges. Furthermore, the discipline, the time management skills and the winner personality your child will develop with my teachings will serve him/her for the rest of their life.
• Children from 4th to 12th grade (Reading/writing (ELA), Elementary math, Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry Regents, Living Environment Regents, Biology Regents).
• Adults(GED/TASC, TEAS(admission test to nursing school),ASVAB)
My present and former students are my best references. They can be contacted and vouch for my character and excellent services.

“I randomly came across Pierre via a craigslist ad one afternoon. At first, I was a bit weary to contact him because of all the crazy stories we hear about people posting ads on craigslist but I took a chance; and good thing I did. I must admit out of all tutors I ever had, Pierre was by far one of my favorites. For two weeks, he helped me extensively with my Math struggles. I have never been great at understanding math but after working with him, I was able to understand concepts I never thought I could. Pierre is not only kind and patient but extremely thorough and persistent. He is knowledgeable in the field and GENUINELY cares about his student's desire to learn and their improvement on the subject matter. I would absolutely, 100% recommend anyone and everyone to Pierre. Not only did he help me succeed in an area where I was struggling but he gave me the tools and confidence in knowing that nothing is impossible. ;)”

“Arrives on time and leaves late sometimes to make sure my child finishes the homework assignment. Tries to accommodate changes in the schedule if something comes up. Very patient with my child. More than reasonable tuition fee.”
