Jonah "... I have over ten years of tutoring experience, working with students anywhere on the spectrum from kindergarten to graduate school, with a particular focus on high school. I enjoy tutoring a range of subjects, but particularly Math, Science, Economics, and Foreign Languages.

Timothy "...The mix of these two disciplines refined my critical thinking skills, and importantly honed my ability to explain difficult topics in an easy-to-digest way. While at Georgetown I tutored underclassmen in Gen Chem as well as the dreaded Orgo. In addition to answering questions during these tutoring sessions I also tried to give students tips on how to study and ultimately ace a specific class (it definitely helped having been through the wringer myself)..."
