Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Writing tutors in Burbank, CA
"However, the most necessary attribute of a good teacher seems to be enthusiasm for the material. Before I started graduate school I worked as an Outreach Instructor for the Arizona Science Center, where I was commended for my creativity and engaging style. I have a wide array of teaching experience, from introducing poetry to second-graders to teaching grammatical structure to undergraduates to conducting science experiments with retirees. My main goal in any subject, including testing, is to help the student learn the fundamental skills required to creatively problem-solve any new difficulties they encounter in the material, ...

" I went to NYU and studied Linguistics, and am continuing my studies for an Applied Linguistics Masters here in California. I have been teaching and tutoring for many years, since I started college. I've done private SAT Prep tutoring both here and in New York, as well as prep for other standardized tests such as the ISEE, SSAT, and HSPT. I also teach a bi-weekly SAT Prep course in Glendale, and an advanced Competition Math class for two age groups (6-8 and 9-12). It's a lot of fun! I've always found math pretty neat and like to get students interested in it too! I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to do a lot of it during my ...

"I also studied English literature, poetry, and creative writing. After growing up on the east coast in South Florida, then attending college in the Midwest, I've finally made it all the way to the west coast and am a recent transplant to Los Angeles. My tutoring experience started as far back as I can remember with my very own sister who is 4 years younger than me. I helped her with everything from fractions, to AP homework, to college applications and essays."

"I also worked with 3- to 7-year olds as a ski instructor and day camp counselor and studied abroad in Australia as a People To People Student Ambassador. I graduated as valedictorian and moved to Santa Barbara, California to study aquatic biology at UCSB, where I graduated with honors in aquatic zoology. During college I learned to surf and worked at day camps as a science (marine biology, zoology, biology, entomology, astrology, and geology) curriculum developer and teacher. I also worked as a private tutor for 8- to 12-year olds in English, math, and science." ...

"When a student finally feels understood by an instructor, he or she completely sprints ahead with the material. I’m strongest at helping students craft essays and strengthen their understanding of English. I learned to be flexible while working at a “drop-in” tutoring lab, never knowing what to expect. In one day, I went from helping a student with an Intro to Shakespeare paper to working on another student’s scholarship statement of purpose to helping a student fine-tune his Computer Science graduate dissertation."

"When I enrolled at the University of Virginia, I began volunteering in local elementary school classrooms and after school programs. Discovering a love of sharing the joy of learning with students, I added some classes from the Curry School of Education to my course load. I took classes on technology in the classroom, curriculum development, and teaching theory among others and used the skills I learned here to teach in summer and Saturday enrichment programs. I recently moved to Los Angeles and found myself missing the interaction I had with the students I knew while attending UVA, and I am so excited to meet my future pupils! Nothing can ...

"My favorite disciplines -- languages, history, geography, and ecology -- are also my pastimes, as they reward me with a sense of wonder for the staggering diversity of human achievements and the rich beauty of the natural environment. I take pleasure in working as a tutor because it is an opportunity to think about my favorite things for hours on end! Even if you aren't quite as excited by your schoolwork as I am, I hope that I can help to make your assignments much less confusing and much more tolerable.

" I love tutoring- during my undergraduate years I taught everything from Biostatistics to MCAT prep, and I thoroughly enjoy helping students understand that difficult biological process that had been eluding them, or seeing them score higher on a test after we have worked hard at it. While my tutoring experience has been limited to college students and college coursework, I feel that I could be very effective with high school students as well as undergraduates. Though my experience and schooling largely rests in the life sciences field, I can definitely teach more than science as I have extensive experience tutoring for the MCAT, which ...

"I also proofread papers and job applications for friends on a regular basis, and I've worked with English-learners on many occasions. It's so rewarding to see people succeed and I want to help in any way I can. After struggling in high school with essays and papers, I came to love to write and I wrote for the campus newspaper at UCSB. One of my biggest goals as a tutor is to teach students to express themselves clearly in any format. A strong writing ability will make any student stand out. Besides tutoring, I am currently an intern for the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and I also work for Performance Bike." ...
