Guide to NYC Providers Offering Online/Virtual Classes and Services

March 21, 2020

There's no denying that all of our lives have been upended by the Coronavirus pandemic, and by all accounts we're going to be in a state of uncertainty for the foreseeable future. Many schools and offices remain closed, social distancing and masking is in full effect, birthday parties and other celebrations have been canceled, and families everywhere are now stuck at home and away from their favorite play spaces, museums, class providers, and other local haunts. At the same time, local businesses are struggling with how to adapt to these new circumstances as they face a sudden loss of revenue and uncertainty as to what the future holds. In typical New Yorker fashion, however, many local class and service providers have quickly pivoted to an online and virtual platform, whereby they can continue to enrich, engage, educate, and help families through this unprecedented time. To that end, I wanted to share with you a variety of class and service providers who are now offering online and virtual classes and services to NYC families. In the listings below, you'll find online possibilities for voice coaching, piano lessons, tutoring, acting classes, art classes, speech therapy, home organizing, and more. Please support these fabulous local providers, who are eager to share their wealth of knowledge and talent with you and your family. I'll be updating the guide on a continuous basis in the days and weeks to come, so if you know of anyone who would like to be included, please do send them my way.

Since 2010, I have worked closely with high school students and families as both a school-based and independent college counselor and educational consultant. With the right combination of challenge and support, I work diligently to guide and support students to highlight the best versions of themselves to colleges, graduate schools, programs, and employers in a way that limits stress, anxieties, and uncertainty. The experience of preparing for the future should be empowering so in partnership, we develop a plan of action that will have excellent outcomes.
I assist with all aspects of the college application process including, but not limited to: college list development, essay development and editing, resume development, college application review, financial aid and scholarship advice, gap year exploration, college major and career exploration, interview preparation, and decision-making guidance. Services can be handled in-person and/or virtually through Zoom, FaceTime, & WhatsApp. I work with students in NYC and across the country and overseas. Please visit my website or email to learn more about my services and pricing.

My focus is on helping K-5th grade students discover a love for reading, increase their confidence, and close the reading gap. I am a reading specialist who uses an Orton-Gillingham approach in my instruction. Along with reading, I teach writing, spelling, and math. My goal is to help my students master challenging concepts and reinforce skills. I provide fun exercises, assignments, and games to motivate my students. I am a certified teacher with a master's degree in Elementary Education from Lehigh University. I have worked as a private tutor for the past 3 years and an online ESL teacher for the past year. I also create educational videos. Tutoring sessions are run through Zoom. Please call or email to discuss your child's specific needs.

I am a former classroom teacher at P.S. 51 and was the Reading Teacher at the Manhattan New School on the Upper East Side for 12 years. I have successfully tutored students in reading from P.S. 158 and P.S. 151. I am trained in both Reading Recovery and Orton Gillingham. Each structured lesson is taught by my direct and explicit instruction, using multi-sensory techniques in reading, writing and spelling. I generally work with Pre-K through 2nd graders. Additionally, I can provide reading reinforcement for children as they embark on their new online learning experience. As the student-teacher relationship shifts I can be there to supplement that experience and provide stability for students who may struggle in this new learning environment. I offer one hour tutoring sessions using Zoom. Packages and special pricing available. Feel free to reach out through email or phone to discuss your child’s specific needs.

Suzanne Dressler formed Skyscraper Tutoring after 12 years of tutoring students from the top private and public schools in NYC. She noticed that while there are a number of educational services in this city, many do not focus on the child and teenager as a human being. Suzanne and her highly experienced and compassionate tutors believe in displaying empathy, support, and transparency with their students. Tutoring should always be a means of helping students become more autonomous as young people, confident in their intellectual abilities, and ultimately, teaching them to be self-learners.
