Nicki and Alexa met at the University of Pennsylvania in their freshmen year, and although they could not have had more different academic paths – with Nicki studying Bioengineering and Alexa studying English – they instantly hit it off. As best friends and roommates for the next three years, they helped each other through courses out of their comfort zones by “exchanging” tutoring services; Nicki helped Alexa get an A in her Environmental Chemistry and Math courses, and Alexa taught Nicki the writing skills she needed to succeed in her Humanities requirements. They each specialize in a different side of the brain, but together at Penn Pals tutoring, they form a powerhouse team. Combining both Nicki and Alexa’s areas of expertise, Penn Pals Tutoring is an NYC-based, full-service tutoring company serving all of your tutoring needs, no matter where on the brain they fall.

"Nicki is very invested and determined to see my son succeed and overcome his struggles with Math. Not only did she help him build confidence, but she was able to provide additional at home assignments and was very helpful in following up and ensuring he stayed on track. Nicki puts her heart into helping her students. My son has improved so much since working with her. I am very pleased I chose private tutoring."

"When I began working with Dennis, I was really struggling in my AP Statistics course. He worked with me patiently and clearly reviewed the material I did not understand. He made sure I was not only able to understand the content, but that I had the strategies to solve the problems. My confidence and ability grew tremendously after having worked with Dennis."

"Gabe was a great tutor and had many insightful ideas to add to my medical school application essays. He was also an expert at tactfully cutting down my word count to meet the demands of my assignment. All in all, a very positive experience and would 100% use again!"
