David "...In college, I loved studying foreign cultures, politics, and economics, and was fortunate enough to spend one semester each in France and Ecuador. I began working as a tutor and teaching assistant at Allegheny, and spent the 2011-12 school year teaching English in a French public high school. Due to my studies and experiences, my best subjects are Spanish, French, government, and economics. I love to discuss and help students understand these subjects..."
John "... I also wrote several historical and literary articles for a startup educational software developer, and worked alongside my best friend on a successful political campaign for a local city councilman. In a nutshell, I am abundantly passionate about anything history related and/or political in nature. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in History from San Jose State University in 2010 and capped it off with a Master’s Degree in Military History from Norwich University in 2013.

Daniel "I started tutoring when I was in high school, myself, where I volunteered as a "Big Brother", helping incoming freshmen adapt themselves to the more rigorous environment of St. Paul's. While an undergraduate at Columbia University, I taught SAT prep courses. I will be going to law school in the fall, and until then I am continuing my passion for teaching with Varsity Tutors! My tutoring style has always been to fit the lesson to the student..."
Andrew "...I am fluent in Spanish, having studied and spoken the language since 2000, and having lived in Mexico City for two years, completing my master's degree in a program conducted entirely in Spanish. My favorite subject to tutor is mathematics; I love helping students arrive at a solution in the way that's best for them. I would describe my teaching and tutoring philosophy as one that constantly engages the students to be aware of their problem-solving process..."

I am incredibly patient and compassionate; and I understand the difficulty of progressing through school and navigating the jungle of standardized testing. I have spent many years tutoring and being tutored myself; through this process, I know what it takes to be a great resource who can make a difference..."

I have taught both SAT and SAT II classes, as well as subject classes including Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. Almost all of my students saw a huge improvement in their scores..."
Olga "...I promise it really isn't so hard! After all, mathematics is really more about ideas than about arithmetic. Ideas that inform our existence, that permeate our universe, that make up the world around us. I strongly believe that a STEM education is best served by focusing on the concepts, not mundane calculations..."
