29 Lessons Taught
After teaching in some of the nation's best HS classrooms (Horace Mann, Scarsdale HS, Great Neck HS), I founded Crimson Coaching in 2014 in order meet the complex needs of teens and pre-teens one-on-one. The word "coach" implies more than just an academic subject expert or test prep tutor, and that is what I am. Drawing upon my years of teaching teens as well as my innate interpersonal gifts, I figure out what each student's challenges are and how to motivate each one differently. I also integrate time management, note taking and organizational coaching into many sessions, since most struggling students also fall short in these areas. Finally, I conduct an extensive Q&A with parent and child before the first session to best understand him/her, and keep parents informed of progress with a detailed report sent following each session.
