"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 ...

" With them I learned the value of working one on one with students to identify how best they learn and help them master their own learning style. I went on to work for another, more individualized company as a lead academic tutor in test prep and multiple subjects. I was recruited by an online tutoring firm to write and perform their ACT prep video series. I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music."

"While I tutor a variety of subjects, some of my favorites are German, math, and English. I have been tutoring students in German, Algebra, Geometry, and SAT preparation for almost ten years. I have worked with eighth-graders preparing for private school entrance exams, have taught Algebra in public school, and I currently teach philosophy at a New Jersey community college. I enjoy helping my students learn to solve problems on their own, think for themselves, and learn the strategies to excel at standardized tests."

"I worked primarily at the level of high school math (Geometry through Calculus), but occasionally had the opportunity to branch off with students into other areas of interest, such as Latin or music theory. In all cases, I loved revisiting my favorite academic subjects and finding ways to help adolescents develop a greater understanding of them, but my favorite part was getting to know the students themselves. I started tutoring again here in New York--and began applying to grad school in education--because I had come to miss these joys. Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, ...

"My expertise in this subject has come from my college education (I was an English major) and my experience working as a writer and editor. Although I have a background in English, I am also equipped to teach a variety of other subjects and have a particular interest in elementary education. My personal educational philosophy is one that accommodates the different ways students learn. I believe it is important for an educator to understand how a given student learns in order to best reach that student."

"I was initially admitted into Lehigh’s school of business and spent a year there before realizing my need to pursue my true passion for English. I graduated in only three and a half years with a Bachelor’s degree in English as well as a minor in creative writing. Through my time at school I have peer edited countless papers, critiqued works of fiction, and written a considerable amount of my own material. Throughout my whole life I have spent much of my spare time reading books or writing creatively."

"I have also edited academic and personal writing, and I have significant experience assisting with college essays. I am all about making learning exciting and intuitive! During Stanford, I served as a mentor and tutor two times a week at the East Palo Alto Boys and Girls Club, and spent many Saturday mornings at a local high school co-coaching the tri-math-a-lon team to two-time national victory. In high school, I worked with my principal to launch MenTu, a mentoring and tutoring program for local elementary school students. Through one on one attention we were able to strengthen the students' math and English homework scores, ...

"I have a solid background working with students from elementary school through college in all academic subjects - especially math, SAT prep, and essay-writing. I love connecting with individual students, and each one I meet teaches me how to help the next. My tutoring style centers on breaking down concepts and starting from scratch, while focusing on logical thinking and analytical skills. I want the student to be able to teach their way through solving a problem so they can apply the fundamentals in other places. Working with students one-on-one is great because I get a chance to see what they’re curious and passionate about, and how ...

In particular, I specialize in tutoring all areas of the SAT and ACT, and any type of writing.
