Amy Abravanel
president, superscores prep

Amy is a graduate of New York University with a degree in Journalism. She has had a rather eclectic career, marked by some interesting twists and turns. She served as editor-in-chief of several trade publications, until she decided to explore another one of her passions – hospitality. She worked her way up to General Manager of several high-end, high volume New York City restaurants. While serving as GM, Amy made a surprising discovery: as much as she loved the hospitality industry, what she loved most was training the members of her staff. She found she was a natural teacher, and never felt more fulfilled than when she was making a difference to her young employees – not just training them in the finer points of food, wine and service, but also in acting as mentor in many of their lives. At last, she had found her true calling.

For more than ten years, Amy has been providing private prep for college entrance exams, helping seniors write their best college essays, and, drawing on her extensive managerial experience, coaching students in interviewing techniques. Amy’s diverse background informs her approach, playing to students’ strengths and individual learning styles. She works with students at every level of learning and prides herself on her success in ensuring that all students – from the most challenged to the most gifted – have all the tools they need to succeed. As a tutor of reading comprehension, grammar, essay writing and vocabulary, Amy has finally come full circle, putting her Journalism degree to very good use. She’s now doing what she loves by helping students discover their best selves. When she was a Journalism student, she dreamed she would change the world, really make a difference. She is proud to be fulfilling that dream – making a difference, one student at a time.
