Kira "... 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. I excel at Writing, Literature, Grammar, and History, and I use to be pretty mean at Math and Geometry and have been reacquainting myself with those subjects over the past few months as I do not get a lot of Math practice as a lawyer! My own learning accomplishments were always assisted by one on one interactions, and I know so many students can benefit by individualized attention. I hope to teach by example, to provide clear and simple explanations for complex concepts, and to be able to review and give advice as quickly and thoroughly as possible..."
Michael "... Right after I received my undergraduate degree from Denison University in 2010, I moved across the ocean to start teaching as part of a Fulbright program in Austria where, believe it or not, no one has ever seen “The Sound of Music.” After I moved back to my hometown of St. Louis, I worked in schools failing the No Child Left Behind standards and began tutoring with Varsity. Even once I started law school at George Washington University, I kept tutoring, started an education law society, and volunteered to work at an education-reform non-profit..."

Sean "...This is in addition to my Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience (with a pre-medical focus) and minor in Sociocultural Anthropology, both of which were earned at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor (Class of 2009). Throughout all of this, I have accumulated a great amount of research experience within the realm of molecular biology and data-driven neuroscience. Currently, I am tackling the arduous process of applying to medical school.

Laura "...I am a graduate of Oberlin College (English) and Northeastern University (MBA) and have built a career on the business side of education, which has been a great way to stay current on teaching methods both virtual and in-class. My tutoring experience includes working with extended family members in middle school, for other tutoring companies, and as a helper in my children's classrooms over the years. I have seen the young people I tutor soar to new heights with a little bit of extra help that builds confidence and independence..."
Emily "...While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about English, Literature, and History. In my experience helping struggling students prepare for Standardized Tests, we always seem to have the most fun (with remarkable advancements) prepping for the Critical Reading and Writing portions of the exams. I am a firm proponent of education, believing it to be absolutely necessary for an improved quality of life, and I try to impart this appreciation to all of my students..."
