Our Company


After meeting in 2007 while teaching at an Upper East Side elementary school, Becky and Danielle discovered a shared belief:  That with individualized attention and support made possible through tutoring, every child could reach their own potential for genuine academic success. With this value and their combined teaching and tutoring experience of over twenty years, they developed Successful Students NYC.
