Tutoring Services

We design and tailor targeted tutoring plans to support students' individual academic needs across subjects including Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, ESL & Foreign Language from Pre-Kindergarten to College! Our expert-tutors are vetted carefully and must pass a rigorous assessment to demonstrate subject-proficiency. Smart Scribe Tutors are trained to identify areas of difficulty in learning content, then employ strategies that simplify concepts with tried-and-true strategies that boost memory, foundational knowledge, problem-solving skills, test-scores and overall academic success!

About the Owner

The Smart Scribe is owned and operated by Nakia Henry, who started the business in 2014, based on her love of teaching, writing, and consulting. As a Long Island native, she would travel throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties as well as the 5 boroughs of NYC, providing tutoring and writing services to people of all ages. As a secondary-school English teacher, she has helped students strengthen their reading, writing and language skills, and ultimately pass state exams and other standardized tests. Throughout her career as a teacher, Mrs. Henry has always been a writer at heart. She has helped many clients with writing or editing a paper, book, business plan and/or resume. She quickly earned the title as "Resume Guru" due to her ability to craft a powerful resume, help clients land their dream jobs and accelerate their careers! Prior to her career in education, she worked as an HR Strategist in which she successfully prepared people for job interviews. In short, The Smart Scribe is an amalgamation of Mrs. Henry's passions for writing, teaching and learning, love of linguistics, and human services.

With a Master's Degree in English Education and over a decade of professional practice, Mrs. Henry has been fortunate enough to teach toddlers to adults. As a certified ESL Teacher, she has developed an exemplary track-record of helping speakers of other languages learn and master English, using an interactive approach to ease the language-acquisition process. She has also taught English Language Arts in high school, with a high-passing rate on NYS ELA Regents Exams (Comprehensive & Common Core). In addition to high-quality writing, Mrs. Henry and The Smart Scribe Tutors are committed to helping to close achievement gaps in literacy, writing and math while fostering a sense of competence and success in school and beyond!
