Plainview Center

SAT Prep in Plainview, NY

C2 Education’s Plainview tutoring center offers a wide variety of personalized academic programs for students in grades K through 12, including SAT prep, ACT prep, schoolwork and homework help, and college admission counseling.

C2 Plainview Program Director Helen Park has been with C2 Education for six years, during which she has become an expert in the local education community. Helen holds a Ph.D. in Biology. She began her career as a biology researcher, both in the public and private sectors, but she found that her true passions lie in education. “C2 Education encourages individual relationships with each student, allowing me to not only understand a student’s grades and test scores, but who they are as an individual,” Helen says. “Because I’m able to get to know each and every student, seeing their confidence soar throughout their C2 programs is particularly rewarding.”

A C2 student begins his or her program with an academic assessment specifically designed to pinpoint academic strengths and areas for improvement. With these results, Helen meets with the student and his or her parents to establish academic goals and create a fully personalized plan to meet those goals.


Test Prep & Tutoring in Plainview, NY

Helen leads a team of highly qualified tutors who have graduated from some of the nation’s best colleges and universities, including Boston College, Brown University, Vassar College, and Stony Brook University. One of C2 Plainview’s top tutors is Brian, who holds a B.S. in Biology from Boston College and is currently working toward a Master’s of Science in Marine Biology from Hofstra University. Brian is an adjunct professor at Hofstra University, an experience which helps to inform his tutoring at C2. “I love teaching,” Brian says. “There is nothing more satisfying than helping a student finally understand a concept they had struggled with. That change in their expression when everything suddenly clicks into place is the best part of the job.”

With the help of Helen, Brian, and the rest of the C2 Plainview team, C2 Plainview’s students have achieved impressive results. Last year, C2 Plainview students earned admission to a number of top colleges and universities, including NYU, Brown University, MIT, and George Washington University.

C2 Plainview students attend several local schools, including Syosset High School, Jericho High School, Bethpage High School, Kellenberg Memorial School, Half Hollow Hill East/West High School, and Sanford H. Calhoun High School. The tutoring center is conveniently located on Old Country Road off exit 44 on the Long Island Expressway, across from Pasadena Elementary School near Mario’s Pizza, Ralph’s Ice, and the Cultural Arts Playhouse.
