The Role:
English tutors perform a wide range of roles. Although they sometimes serve as conversation partners or provide academic support for writing, our English tutors mostly prepare students for the relevant sections of the SAT, ACT, SSAT, and ISEE exams as well as language tests like TOEFL, IELTS, and Duolingo. Tutors must be able to bridge any cultural and/or personal gaps that lie between themselves and the student in order to achieve the goals set out in the diagnostic analysis provided by the Director of Education.
