You would be amazed by how many tutors are out there offering to teach subjects in which they are not fully qualified. Many of these tutors have not even studied the subject at college level. A sub-standard tutor can actually do more harm than good and end up destroying a student's confidence. Hence, make sure the tutor has an advanced degree in his or her chosen field, preferably from a top-tier university.
Dr. Donnelly's academic qualifications are second to none and include:
- Ph.D. in mathematical science from Oxford University
- Honors degree in mathematics and physics
- Author of several popular test prep books including:
- The highest grades (99th percentile) in standardized tests
- 20 years of teaching experience.
Just because a person is gifted in a particular subject does not mean he or she can actually teach. An excellent tutor should also have extensive teaching experience at different levels, and be able to explain each concept clearly to the student in a number of different ways.
Dr. Donnelly has over 20 years of teaching experience including:
- Ex-college professor at two separate U.S. universities
- Founder of Tutors of Oxford (Hong Kong) - 1993-1998
- Founder of Tutors of Oxford (NYC) - 1998 - present
- High school math & physics teacher
- 20 years of private tutoring experience
Many tutors treat tutoring as a second job done only to help to pay the bills or to tide them over in between their actual careers. Hence, it is not surprising that with so many other distractions, many of these tutors do not display the same level of professionalism and focus that one would expect from a dedicated, full-time professional tutor.
With a Ph.D. from Oxford University by the age of 25, Dr. Donnelly could have chosen to pursue any career that he wanted. His love of teaching and of helping students to achieve their academic goals led Dr. Donnelly to become a full time professional tutor. Dr. Donnelly is now considered by many leading academics to be one of the finest tutors and standardized test preparation specialists in the country.
The tutor must help each student to feel comfortable enough to ask questions and make mistakes without feeling self-conscious during the lesson. Hence, the tutor must be patient and pleasant-natured while at the same time encouraging the student to take an active part in each lesson.
Over the years, Dr. Donnelly's patient, professional manner has helped literally hundreds of students increase their confidence in the subject and significantly improve their test scores. We are confident that he can do the same for you.
Private lessons with Dr. Donnelly are available either online via Skype for those students living outside of the New York City area or in-person at our office located at 1460 Broadway, Suite 15017 for those students living here in Manhattan.
