Carefully selected, highly-credentialed English tutors in Seattle, WA
" I enjoy watching students overcome intimidating material once they learn the fundamentals. Having taken many tests myself, I appreciate the difficulty of preparing and managing time during a test. I show students how to proceed through test questions quickly and manage time during a test. Test prep is necessary in today's education system, and I believe it's important to help students cope and excel through these pressure situations. I always emphasize with students that their goal is not a perfect score, but rather the ability to proceed efficiently through questions without second guessing." ...

"I have been a volunteer tutor for college freshmen and sophomore level math classes as part of my membership in the Institute of Industrial Engineers during my years in college, and have worked in an elementary school environment where my duties as a technology coordinator occasionally required me to instruct students. For me, the biggest thrill in any job is visibly seeing that "light bulb moment" as someone crosses the boundary between confusion and understanding. Thank you for taking the time to consider me for your tutor, and I'm hoping to hear from you soon!." ...

"Last summer, I designed the curriculum and taught a seven-week intensive course on SAT Critical Reading and Writing. As a high school student, I didn't have much luck with my own SAT tutors. I have since taken my own personal experiences as a student and improved my own teaching style. I find that students are able to easily relate to me, because of my age and approachability."

"I guide students and help them work out the answers themselves, making sure that they understand the process at each step of the way. This method-based focus promotes long-lasting learning that can be dynamically applied to new material, and prevents boring and ineffective memorization-based learning. My tutoring style was developed specifically with the learning brain in mind, and it will help build test-taking and learning skills for now and for the future. I have an extensive background in improv comedy, so I feel very comfortable interacting with a wide range of people, and while I make sure we learn a lot, I also try to keep things ...

I believe all students bring a unique and important perspective to their writing, and my job is helping them find their voice.

"Prior to entering the teaching profession I volunteered at two elementary schools, where I tutored students in reading and math. I enjoy tutoring because it allows me to deliver individualized instruction and connect with students in a way that just isn't possible in a large classroom. While I tutor in many subjects, math and writing are my favorites. Whether it's mastering multiplication tables or the quadratic formula, I tailor my tutoring to the student's learning style. I always begin by asking "Who are you? What do you like to do? What are your goals?" and trying out some sample problems to get an idea of the student's ...

"I know I've done my job right when a student has the confidence to defend their answers and don't just look them up in the back of the book. In the past I have tutored students from elementary school all the way to college. I've given instruction in three different chemistry lab classes, and have helped students raise their grade in both Math and English. I prefer students who want to learn and are ready to put in the time and work necessary to make the grade.."
