Ariel "...Tailoring the material to the student will be an important way for him or her to, not only, understand and retain the information, but also to apply it. There are many educational tools that are either not used in classrooms or are not suitable for groups, finding the right tool for the student will be central to my approach. My background is interdisciplinary and broad. I am a practicing attorney in Washington, DC with prior careers in technology consulting and intelligence analysis..."

Christina "I am very enthusiastic about helping you or your child reach your learning goals this year! I am a Masters student at Georgetown University in the School of Foreign Service, where I study Refugee and Humanitarian Issues. I love English and History, and minored in the former in undergraduate at George Washington University (with a major in International Affairs.) My tutoring style is very flexible: I am always interested in trying new methods of memorization--from mnemonics to interactive games and creative activities--and appreciate that everyone learns differently. I received very high scores on the AP English, US History, European History, World History, and Psychology exams, and attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions..."
