PRIVATE ENGLISH TUTORING
Since 2005, we’ve helped students improve their confidence and grades in all levels of English.
We’re especially proud of the fact that other educators (teachers and professors) and high profile members of the Princeton University Administration trust us with their children’s academic success and recommend our services to others.
Whether you’re struggling with your English class or general reading comprehension or writing skills, our exceptional private English tutors will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs.

What parents say about our English tutors
Our team includes award-winning Princeton University undergrads and Master’s/PhD graduates who are rigorously screened and are extremely effective at communicating the material.
A quick “case study”:
The parent of an 11th grader contacted us help her son improve his analytical essay skills for English and history classes. He specifically had trouble formulating clear theses and organizing his thoughts.
Our general goals were to improve his writing skills and increase his confidence.
We matched the son with Daniel, a philosophy and neuroscience major at Princeton University, and aspiring professor.
Here are two messages we received over the course of their work together:
“I am so very pleased with the work you are doing with Colin! Have sent some folks your way. Thanks.”
“Thanks Daniel. I was talking with the WWP English supervisor for grades 6 to 12 and told her what a super job you were doing with Colin.
Your teaching techniques are better than most of the English teachers he has encountered over the past years. This is really true! You would make a good professor!”
We receive messages like these every week.
We regularly track progress
Progress reports are shared after every session so you always know what’s going on.
A Real-Life Example:
Time Tutored: 11:00 – 12:00
Next Scheduled Session: Tue, 11/29 5:30 PM
The work Vasya and I did today focused on grammar and on incorporating information from texts.
In grammar, we talked about adverbs, appositives, and appositive phrases. We looked at combining a variety of techniques to determine adverbs (memorizing common adverbs + looking for what the word modified + asking questions about when/where/to what extent, etc.)
On the issue of incorporating information from texts, I would like Vasya to write an essay this week about Grace Kelly. We decided on an historical expository paper because that genre requires plenty of external sources and information, but does not need a deep theoretical background. We practiced with a quote from this New York Times article, specifically focusing on minimizing the amount of the quote she used, as well as incorporating the quote with correct punctuation.
Since this weekend is Thanksgiving, we’re tentatively planning to meet next on Tuesday, November 29.
How is your child performing in English?LEARN HOW WE CAN HELP
Addresses common student issues
A deep understanding of the subject matter allows us to personalize our approach.
Why is English important?
The ability to understand what you’re reading and the ability to write well are essential core skills that are necessary in all subjects.
Why do some students struggle with English?
Students struggle with reading comprehension and writing for a number of reasons. These might include inherent aptitude, attitude, or the quality of one’s teachers. In particular, students who do not read frequently are at a disadvantage.
As our students spend more of their time in the online world, you might think all that typing and texting would lead to improved writing abilities.
However, academic writing entails a certain set of expectations regarding format, approach, ways of backing up what you say, etc. that must be learned. Our tutors can help.
