The Study Shack’s tutoring team is comprised of collegial individuals who work together and individually to enhance each student’s understanding of the material at hand. Our tutors have graduated from colleges such as NYU, Columbia, Hunter, and UCLA, with degrees in Early Childhood Education, Elementary and Secondary Education, and Special Education. They are confident in addressing learning differences in each student, and provide individual attention and focus in order to help students succeed in school and on tests. Our tutors offer one-on-one sessions at our Upper East Side location, our Tribeca location, or in your home.
