New York, NY – On Saturday, November 14th, Khan’s Tutorial (KT) hosted its second Annual Achievement Awards Ceremony. KT celebrated students in the third through eighth grades who received 4s and double 4 scores on their ELA and Math Citywide Exams this past year. A score of 4 means that these students met and excelled beyond the standards set for elementary and junior high school students.  This puts them amongst the top 9% of all NYS students who scored a 4 on their 2015 ELA exam and the top 16% of students who scored a 4 on their 2015 Math exam. In addition, we recognized the accomplishments of our high school students who scored highly on their Regents, SATs, and ACTs. 

“I am very happy to see such young, talented, and ambitious individuals come to KT and take advantage of our resources to advance their growth in knowledge. Today, in addition to our Common Core students we have many HSAP students who scored above a 2000 on the SAT and 95 or higher on multiple Regents Exams. I hope the students can take this time recognize and appreciate the hard work and support of their parents. It is really the parents who sacrifice so much for their children so that they can succeed,” said Mrs. Nayeema Khan, Khan’s Tutorial Chairperson.

Amongst our honored guests were Consul General Shamim Ahsan, and Special Assistant Anas Uddin who attended in place of NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer. Comptroller Stringer was honored by Khan’s Tutorial for his constant work in the community, his attention to new immigrant issues, and his dedication to education. In turn, the Comptroller awarded Khan’s Tutorial with a Commendation for KT’s tutoring and mentorship work with low-income communities.


KT held the ceremony due to the overwhelming success of their signature Common Core Program, which was started in the past few years. Today, KT’s Common Core Program has become as successful as its well-established and recognized SHSAT Program. 

“We are proud to see our Common Core program grow and improve every year. Our personalized approach which includes constant communication with parents has tremendously benefitted our students who scored perfect 4s,” said Dr. Ivan Khan, CEO of Khan’s Tutorial. 

The KT Common Core Program stresses the importance of constant communication by holding weekly Parent Teacher Conferences and offering KT Original Monthly Diagnostic Exams to track progress. In addition, Khan’s Tutorial is a registered vendor with the Department of Education and works closely with school leaders, especially around report card time. 

“I’m very proud of our students and the Instructors that helped it all happen. It is through our Instructors’ dedication that we see our students’ success rates multiply each year,” said the Director of Common Core at Khan’s Tutorial, Nadia Hossain. 

For the past 21 years, Khan’s Tutorial’s vision has been to provide quality education at affordable costs. With 10 locations in the outer boroughs of New York City, including Brooklyn, Castle Hill, Parkchester, Jackson Heights, Jamaica, Sutphin, Richmond Hill, Astoria, Ozone Park, and Floral Park, Khan’s Tutorial primarily serves in assisting families in low-income neighborhoods and new immigrant communities.
