"During my time at Yale, I studied Classics and Humanities, served on the Executive Board of the Yale Dramatic Association, and travelled throughout Italy and Greece on a research fellowship. As a tutor, I am committed to helping my students reach their full academic potential. When it comes to test prep, I work carefully with my students to design a personalized program of study that takes advantage of their strengths and addresses their weaknesses, so that on test day they’ll earn their highest possible score. Outside of the SAT/ACT, my areas of strength are in reading, writing, language (Latin), and history. I believe that learning is ...

"Any level and topic of Mathematics is fun and exciting for me and I enjoy inspiring my students to feel the same way. I also have some experience with gifted children, or kids who are preparing for the Math olympiads or competitions. I am a Ph.D. candidate at Stony Brook University and my research focuses on Game Theory which is a topic at the heard of Economics/Mathematics. In the past decade (including this year) a significant number of Nobel Prize winners in Economics have been Game Theorists! Many of these Nobel Prize winners regularly visit Stony Brook every summer. In my spare time I like solving Math puzzles, drawing (either from real ...

"Extracurricularly, I led a global health organization called GlobeMed and helped to develop an HIV/AIDS prevention project and to teach a global health curriculum. My work with public health has taken me all over the world from Harlem, New York to Gulu, Uganda, and I hope to continue pursuing my passion for global health in my future career and medical studies. In my spare time, I like to read, do yoga, and explore all the wonders of New York City.

" I tutored college students for a political science class as well as a creative writing class. The funny part is that while I always enjoyed writing and had a passion for it, I was never very good. I had my problems with my own writing and certainly not, at first, qualified to tutor anyone else in it. In fact, my first creative writing class I took at Middlebury, my professor told me that writing was not my strong suit. I was discouraged."

"Louis, and graduate student in Writing at Columbia University. In May of 2011 I received my Bachelor’s in Comparative Arts, a unique interdisciplinary program offered through the WashU's Department of Comparative Literature - essentially a hybrid of Literature and Art History. I also completed minors in both Photography and Writing, two of my greatest passions. In the fall of 2012 I began my MFA in Writing with a concentration in non-fiction at Columbia. My extensive coursework in English and Creative Writing has given me a great deal of experience in workshop-based classes, and has made me a careful and skilled editor. I believe one ...

"As a Kenyon Writing Center tutor, I worked closely with students across all disciplines; in one night, I might edit a lab report with a biology major, then help a philosophy major restructure a paper on Kierkegaard. I was also the managing editor of the student newspaper, where I trained first-year students in hands-on editing for style, content, and factual accuracy. Currently, I'm gearing up to apply for graduate programs in sociology. I emphasize that a student always has the tools to succeed and improve right in front of him or her--it's simply a matter of knowing how to use those tools. When you break processes down into simple, ...

" It was in my freshman year at Muhlenberg that I was first trained as a tutor. Ever since I have been tutoring Math, Chemistry and standardized tests. Tutoring is a pleasure to me, I particularly enjoy helping students reach that 'aha' moment, where they gain an insight into a particular concept. As of January 2012 I have tutored more than 20 students for a total of nearly 500 hours. In the future I will be attending graduate school in Chemistry, and will later continue as an educator, hopefully on the university level.."
