She is passionate about teaching important study and organizational skills, while working with her students to manage test anxiety so they can reach their full potential on these exams and in their future academic careers.

Every single one of her SHSAT students who started tutoring in April and completed their homework has been accepted to a specialized high school. She's also had students accepted to Hunter College High School. There are many more success stories upon request!

"Remy is terrific. She is super efficient and always comes to sessions with a great attitude. My kids love working with her. We highly recommend Remy. Thank you."


“We decided to get our daughter some tutoring for the Hunter test at the last minute. Remy was incredible. She has a gift of really seeing her students, which allows her to understand and address their needs. She honed in on exactly what to focus on for our daughter (math!) and was detailed, patient and encouraging throughout the process. Because of that, our daughter actually had fun and did the work outside of the sessions. As a result, her grasp of the material increased rapidly and exponentially. The best part was that when she got in, Remy was thrilled for her. We cannot recommend her highly enough!”


"Remy is nothing short of brilliant! She has an unbelievable ability to connect with kids and with our daughter with mild dyslexia. Her SSAT scores went from being in the 30% to 75%. She helps unblock kids and teach them to succeed. No other tutor has ever come close her to results. She has been a god-send to our daughter and continues to work with her when needed for particular school subjects. Remy is a remarkable talent in everything she sets out to do!"


"I have recommended Remy to all of my friends. She was instrumental in helping our son improve his test scores. And most importantly, she was always encouraging, insightful, patient and kind. Our son truly enjoyed working with her, and she is a fabulous teacher."


"Remy has just the right balance of discipline, skill, compassion, and inspiration. My daughter is not always easy to coach and often thinks she knows better. Remy was very clear about what it would take for her to increase her scores but remained supportive and committed throughout the process. Remy was no nonsense while still being likeable and easy to work with. We felt that Remy was there with us the whole time - teaching and cheering. I would unequivocally recommend Remy! She knows what it takes, and she delivers!"
