Helm Tutors offers test preparation and academic tutoring in a number of formats (1-on-1 private sessions and class-based group sessions, face-to-face or online.) Because we have an interactive whiteboard built into our site, we are able to tutor you one-on-one regardless of your location. In the past, we have been able to tutor students as far as Jakarta and as close as Brooklyn. Our face-to-face tutoring (whether it is 1-on-1 or classroom) can only happen for students near the NYC metro area. In general, our face-to-face rates are higher and our online classrooms are limited to 3 students at a time whereas we are able to serve 20+ students in a classroom setting at your school (we occasionally work with an entire school on SAT prep program by sending tutors to the school’s location 2 or 3 times a week.)
Our approach to test prep is the same regardless of what standardized exam we work on. We give students a couple of diagnostic test to start. We go over the diagnostic exams. Then, we teach a number of lessons (depending on diagnosed areas of weakeness) and thereafter, we practice tests. That is, after the lessons where we “fill in any gaps,” we get into a routine of doing a practice test and going over the practice test. We continue practicing until a couple of weeks prior to the real test date where we give our students official previously administered tests. We have seen this plan work countless times with many of our students getting perfect scores on their official exam reports.
SAT Subject Tests
Contest Mathematics (AMC, etc)
Our tutors know how to get a student the ideal score. But more importantly, they know how to teach the underlying subject in a way that enriches the student’s learning experience and has long-lasting benefits. With academic tutoring, our tutors truly stand out, bringing their love of the subjects they excel in to the student.
We are able to tutor ALL High School subjects and we offer support to college students on a request basis. Although a lot of our students come from private and public high schools all over the US and some abroad, just to name a few, we have previously worked on math with students attending Conell University, Princeton University, and Carnegie Mellon, and Harvard University.
