A Chat with MindMatters Tutorial
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Established by a dual-licensed teacher, MindMatters is dedicated to educational excellence. Our experienced Ivy League instructors not only know the SAT inside and out, but are skilled in diagnosing a student’s strengths and weaknesses, simplifying difficult material and motivating students.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We begin by administering diagnostic tests and providing comprehensive reviews of results. Everyday students learn and practice new concepts from real tests. Instructors lead rigorous instruction for all vital areas of the SAT: critical reading, essay writing, grammar, vocabulary, and math.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
MindMatters began with a teacher’s love for education. Disappointed with the “teaching to the worksheet” and “one-size-fits-all” approaches that many tutorials pursued, a NYU and Columbia educated dual-licensed teacher took it upon herself to create an educational space where students matter.
What do you love most about your job?
The “light bulb moment” when a student finally understands how to solve the unbeatable math problem or decipher a confusing reading passage is what we love most about our job. Being able to see the light bulb go off above a student’s head is the one of the best feelings for a teacher.
