I noticed that Kevin’s improving in his writing. Just wanted to say thank you.”
The way he explained to me what I was lacking in my writing and what I was doing wrong when it came to expressing myself literally blew me away and opened my eyes.
Mr. Castellano is undoubtedly one of the most dedicated and passionate teachers I have ever come across! He always took the time to talk to me about the strengths and weaknesses he noticed in my writing and motivated me to improve my writing and overall grasp of the language. More importantly, he is a very approachable and friendly person, which makes it easy for students to turn to him for help and advice. It was truly a pleasure learning from him in high school and I would certainly recommend him as a tutor!
He is knowledgeable, professional, and willing to help in any way he can. He helped me proofread and edit my graduate school application essay and needless to say I got accepted to Queens College. His constructive feedback has been helpful to me even until this day.
Mr. Castellano is one of the best writing tutors you can possibly go to. He helped me A LOT on my APA college term paper. He really guided and helped me organize everything on paper... Needless to say, I got an A!
He made writing, for me, fun once I got a full grasp of the English language. This was just in high school, but we go over my writing even today, nearly a decade removed from high school. It’s because of his help, I have been fully immersed in writing full-time in my professional career.
Just wanted to say thank you. I got into Stuyvesant .
Mr. Castellano tutored me three weeks before the ACT because I was unsure of my skills on the English section of the test. The results: my initial practice scores of 24, 29 and 8 on the writing, reading and essay section rose to a 31, 34, and 10, respectively, on the official exam.
Mr. Castellano is a reliable mentor and an incredible source of motivation. He taught me to step out of my comfort zone and to explore the world around me. He pushed me to own my strengths and accept my weaknesses. He sees potential in all of his students and the helps them strive to be the best they can be
Mr. Castellano helped me get a precious scholarship that allowed me to study in internationally renowned Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in Berkeley, CA.
