If you want to be tutored by a Top 1% tutor on Wyzant's platform, you're at the right place. As the CEO of this site informed me in an email, for 2019, my "exact percentile was 99.40%" on Wyzant's platform. (Andrew Geant, Wyzant CEO)

I specialize in test preparation (SAT, ACT, PRAXIS, SSAT, ISEE, GRE...) and editing of college/application/dissertation papers.
Based on my over two decades of experience as a full-time tutor, I can tell that individual lessons give the best re...
Mariana was amazing! She is kind, patient, and takes the time to review strategies based on each learning need. Her strategies helped me pass my 5004 Praxis test! I have more confidence, and I would recommend her to anyone who needs help passing a Praxis.

She is teaching science for Praxis content and she is very knowledgeable with content. She is helping me to understand the questions and be able to answer exactly what it is looking for. I am grateful to have found her as a tutor.

If you are looking to crack the SAT reading section, then Mariana is the right person to help you. In just 4 lessons my daughter has improved in her ability to choose the correct answer as well as her confidence in her overall abilities. Mariana is very efficient in her lessons and her strategies for success are very straightforward and effective, and can be applied to test taking beyond the SAT. I only wish we had found her earlier!
- Sripriya K. from Palo Alto, CA
Mariana is an amazing tutor. She has a knack for knowing my strengths and weaknesses. I feel confident in my lessons now that Mariana has instructed me. She is patient, intuitive and knowledgeable.
- Terry S. from Westfield, NJ
We have been working with Mariana for nearly two months now; the prep was to gain assistance on the SSAT test that was approaching. After taking the test, we decided to continue with Mariana in order to gain additional learning strategies, which she is extremely helpful and knowledgeable in the reading and writing process. She has a ton of material that she works with, we will continue to work with her! My 3rd grader has started to read much better (he was already okay) and also has started to gain a liking for reading and paying closer attention to words he isn't aware of and actually uses them in his daily activities. I would definitely recommend using her if you are searching for an academic coach.

She tutored me praxis reading, she is a very well organized and prepared, after she shared the material she worked with me on each question and explain it to me
- Raghad N. from Fort Lee, NJ
Working with Mariana was great. She is very detailed, catching even my minor mistakes to help me improve my English. She gave me very useful homework assignments, which helped me with my grammar especially. We had a lot of fun together in our tutoring sessions - I never knew how fun it could be to work on grammar, vocabulary and learning how to write essays. My writing skills increased quite a bit from working with Mariana. She helped me express my feelings and opinions better in writing, which is an important skill in general and also important for me in particular as I was preparing for the GED. Mariana is a great tutor who I highly recommend. In addition to being a great tutor, Mariana was also always very easy to get in touch with on the phone and was flexible a couple times when I needed to reschedule our appointments. Overall, a very positive experience. Thanks, Mariana for all the help!

Looks like her unique method is working quite fine for my daughter. She is knowledgeable, organized and well prepared. I am perfectly satisfied and trust her method.
- Nader N. from Simi Valley, CA
These past two lessons I had were wonderful and I learned a lot. We went over reading strategies that can be applied to the other sections of the Praxis test. We spoke in-depth and did guided practice during our lessons together to practice the reading strategies. I am looking forward to our future lessons.

I loved how she listened to my personal needs and asked me the right questions. She is determined and patient. I think thats very important trait for coaches to have.

She taught me different strategies to find the meaning of unknown words by using prefixes and suffixes. She taught me to use prior knowledge to find information I don't know.

Mariana is a great tutor that helps student to enhance their knowledge in a short period of time. I think the main reason is because she is experienced and also her great patience to students. She pays attention to every single detail which is amazing.
