Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Robert Kohen and I am a private tutor with a passion for helping students succeed. Through my personalized tutoring I help students significantly improve scores on all sections of the SAT, ACT, ISEE and SSAT, as well as improve their academic writing and critical thinking. I have extensive experience diagnosing students’ weaknesses, simplifying difficult material and motivating students.
Before working as a private tutor, I taught at Harvard University, where I was officially recognized with distinction by the Dean of Harvard College for my teaching. I earned my Ph.D. from Harvard as an I.H. Levin Scholarship recipient and my B.A. from Columbia University, where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude. I have scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT and ACT, which I teach students locally at my Manhattan office and globally online. I believe that standardized tests can be a lot of fun and am committed to helping my students achieve their best. Likewise, I believe that everyone has the innate building blocks to succeed academically, and I work hard to help my students feel comfortable and engaged with the learning process. When not teaching, I can be found enjoying all things New York, from exploring new restaurants to biking around the city and rooting for its many sports teams.
