Alicia "...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..."
Stephanie "I graduated from Oberlin College in 2008 with a double degree in math and politics, and then I moved to China. I spent more than four years in China working as a teacher for Chinese and international students. I've taught all different ages and types of students, in subjects ranging from ESL to math to SAT..."
Rebecca "Some subjects/topics can be difficult, but sometimes looking at the problem in a different way makes the material clearer and easier. My basic learning and teaching philosophy has always been that the best way to handle difficult material is to take your head off the page and to try to reframe the question in a different way. Coming to a problem - whether it be an essay, a math question, or a writing exercise - with a different frame of mind can help make learning fun and rewarding..."

Leela "...I also tutored math and reading for grade school children at the inner-city Pittsburgh school districts. I tutor science classes and ACT, SAT, and MCAT test prep. My favorite classes to tutor are anatomy/physiology and biochemistry! As a medical student I am seeing how these subjects are applied in the human body, which makes it really fun to tutor them! My tutoring style focuses on the student taking ownership of the material..."

Dana "I recently graduated from Brown University with a degree in Public Policy, but I my fields of study ranged from biology to organic chemistry to British literature. I'm a hardworking, compassionate, and patient individual who has been tutoring since high school and helping my little sister with her homework long before. I'll work with every new student individually to recognize his or her strengths and weaknesses to make sure that material is actually being learned, not just memorized."

Emilia 'Mia' "...Most students come to me for my encouraging spirit and fun attitude because I always want to make learning a positive experience. Writing an essay or dissecting a book really boils down to the art of storytelling -- and I think, no matter your age, we all can appreciate to the transformative power of stories. Not everyone finds their words easily, and some even feel ashamed to take time to express themselves..."
Alexander "...As a REACH Mentor at Regis High School and an Activity Head at Brewster Day Camp, I’ve learned that listening is just as important in being a good teacher. Each child has a different relationship with language, and improving that relationship is impossible without first understanding it. English isn’t just a subject taught in school; it’s how we access the people and ideas around us..."
Raffaele "...It is about using knowledge to improve one's life both personally and professionally. There are skills which need to be mastered and this is one important element of education. I also believe that education can improve one's enjoyment of life regardless of the occupation or field of study one pursues. I am especially proficient in the areas of essay writing and editing, proofreading, and the mechanics of grammar and usage..."
