Dwayne "...I have years of experience tutoring middle and High school students in the areas of Math, English, Biology and Chemistry. My most rewarding experience was working with a program called Brooklyn College Now program geared at preparing high school students for college. It was a very rewarding experience watching these students ultimately get into the college of their choice..."
Ally "I am currently an environmental health fellow for the government, where I focus on children's environmental health issues. I received my Masters of Public Health (MPH) at the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health in 2013.

Kira "... I currently work as an attorney for the Department of Justice, graduated from Ball State University 13 years ago and went straight to law school at Washington and Lee University right here in Virginia. One of my favorite parts of my current job is interacting with law student interns and paralegals and teaching them about the law. I do not get to do that often enough though, and so I thought of tutoring as a great way to be able to teach more students..."
Craig "...From my experiences, I learned that anyone can tackle basic mathematical ideas if they are given proper patience and instruction. Furthermore, I have learned that every student has a unique style of learning. My tutoring philosophy embodies this notion and I strive to tailor my lessons to fit each student’s academic strengths..."
Alexa "...I tutor for the SAT, ACT, several SAT subject tests (including Literature, Physics, US History, and Math I & II), and academic writing/college essays. I love encouraging students and showing them that they can succeed in subjects they find difficult. I also volunteer as a college guidance counselor in Philadelphia public high schools where I help students realize their potential and navigate the college application and financial aid processes..."
Eva "...This is what makes a student a lifelong learner who doesn't shy away from a challenge or the unknown. I like to inject fun and humor into learning and am the product of some really excellent educators who I like to think inform my teaching style. My tutoring experience began nearly four years ago when I began working with an organization that helps prepare under-served students for the SAT and the college admissions process. I enjoyed breaking students' preconceived notions about what they could and could not do, and I value the interpersonal relationships with my students that I was able to create and maintain to this day..."
Allison "...I have always been a bit of a language nerd, so I gain special satisfaction from crafting a robust argument or sticking the correct ending on a German adjective. Writing and German grammar are my favorite subjects to tutor. My ability to tailor my instruction to my students’ individual needs and learning preferences is my greatest strength as an instructor..."
Robert "...I am an editor for a campus newspaper and am very adept at helping students develop their writing skills to produce high quality pieces of work. If you choose me as a tutor, don't expect me to merely fill out the answers for the test you are taking. My style is a question-based approach where I ensure that a student not only understands the subject matter that he or she is working with, but also the basics of test taking..."
West "I tutored at a writing center while an undergraduate student, and became an Advanced Certified Tutor through the College Reading and Learning Association. I also taught English classes in Russia for 2 years. I enjoy tutoring because of the opportunity it presents to constantly adapt lessons and teaching styles to best meet the needs of individual students..."
