 Part-Time Position Available

I am tutoring a ninth-grade student, Katherine, in Biology, Math, and Global, but will be going abroad for a few weeks, and need a replacement.

The job not only consists of helping her with her homework, but also acting as a mentor. She has a lot of potential, but needs to be guided to stay on the right path. The tutor should focus on Regents Prep and help her develop test-taking strategies.  

She lives in Kew Gardens, Queens near the E train. The commitment would be three days a week, 2 hours a day starting the week of May 7th until Regents Week in late June. 

The hours would probably be from 6 to 8 on three school nights. The mom,  Nancy, is very flexible and will work with the student's availability.

If anyone is interested please contact Nancy at
