Kyle "...Since then, I've cultivated a passionate curiosity about languages and language, zooming out from particular tongues (French, Italian, German, Latin, Ancient Greek) to the abstract study of meaningful communication itself. I've worked as a tutor for many years, in a variety of learning environments, with students ranging in age from 8 to middle-aged. My specialties include SAT prep, French, college applications, logic, and guidance at every stage of the essay-writing process (from initial brainstorming through outlining, writing, substantive editing, and final proofreading)..."

Chibuzo "...I like the feeling of being able to explain concepts that I have previously learned, be it math or reading, I'm your girl! My favorite subjects to tutor are the math and science subjects and test prep(it's no wonder I chose engineering). In my spare time, I like to work out and play sports. I'm also a huge bookworm, so if you hear of any good books, let me know! I play the piano and the alto and baritone saxophones; music has always been a large part of my life. I would say that my style as a tutor is a bit laid back–I'm not one for hand-holding..."

I have always enjoyed helping others on their studies and have been tutoring for the past year or so. I have worked mainly with elementary level students on reading and math; however, I am also comfortable tutoring middle and high school level English and Mathematics.
