New Tutors

I just met two new neighbors who are looking to expand their tutoring service.
Sarah Marcus (347) 432-6061
has trained in Kaplan Methods to teach SAT, ACT, Verbal, Math, ISEE/SSAT, and SAT II Subject Tests and worked for several years teaching through Kaplan in Chicago and NY. She is also fluent in Spanish and just received her MFA in Acting from DePaul University. She would also be an ideal coach for a student looking to work on their LaGuardia or Murrow audition piece.

Josh Bedell (631) 300-8876
Josh is a 3 year Math Teacher and Teaching Fellow, who is looking to help students who need support or enrichment.
They are young, energetic and very easy for your middle or high school student to connect with.
