A Chat with 78th St. Tutoring
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am a test-prep specialist and author of "Preparing for the ERB" (2013 edition is currently available on Amazon; 2016 edition will be available in February.) I opened 78th St Tutoring in Manhattan in 2012, and am now looking to expand to the Hamptons. Mainly weekend availability through March.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Materials depend on the customized lesson plan - I always call in advance to discuss details.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Believe it or not, just 4 years ago, there was almost no test-prep material for the ERB! I wanted to provide that missing service to make the test less stressful for children. Once 78th St Tutoring was up and running, I loved it so much that I have been tutoring ever since!
What do you love most about your job?
All children learn differently - and that's good! My job is to customize a tutoring plan for your children that make them feel smart and capable. The best part is your children can measure the extent of their accomplishments. Progress builds confidence, which makes happy and successful people.
