Gabrielle "... This sparked my interest in tutoring, and the year after I graduated I tutored student athletes at the university in English, History and Mythology classes. I believe that all students are highly capable, they just need the proper tools to gain the confidence to succeed. Some students simply don't have all the information they need to do something well, but this doesn't mean that they are automatically "bad" at reading or writing papers. I try to help students develop the skills they need so that they can move forward with confidence and continue to improve. I have been reading my whole life, and I have done a lot of creative writing, so I have a great love of words..."
Erica "...in Political Science in 2011. I then served as a Preventative Health Education Peace Corps Volunteer in Senegal, West Africa for two years and continued for a third year to work with an organization doing public health research. I taught students of all levels, as well as adults, about health issues and tutored high school students in English and Math to prepare them for their exit exams..."

I am a published critic and scholar, and I currently work as an editorial assistant and proofreader. I also love teaching writing.

Sarah "...With my dedication to student empowerment and rigorous academic background, including graduating Summa Cum Laude from Columbia University and earning a fellowship to pursue my M.A. in Latin from the University of Michigan, I am ready to make a powerful impact on students outside of the classroom. While I specialize in tutoring Latin and Greek and am familiar with a variety of textbooks, I am also skilled at preparing students for the SAT and GRE--particularly the reading and writing portions. Although I clearly have a deep passion for my subject matter, I have an even greater passion for student achievement that drives me to work relentlessly to obtain results..."

Peter "In 2014 I graduated magna cum laude from Carleton College in Minnesota with a BA in cinema and media studies. I have experience writing and editing grant proposals, both for a documentary production company and for myself. I have a natural easy-going attitude and earnestness which make people very comfortable asking for my help with any problem they have..."
Cheryl "... My favorite subjects have always been Math and Science, especially Biology and Chemistry. I enjoy finding different approaches to math problems and have found ways to make all my students over the years understand the best way for them to solve different types of questions. This ability meant that I was often given students with various learning disabilities, since they knew I could make it work for those students..."

In helping students with reading and writing skills, I enjoy using multiple different approaches to develop a well-rounded understanding of the techniques, while making the sessions fun. I’m a strong proponent of keeping studying dynamic..."
Winston "... I also tutored my fellow history undergrads at Harvard, and juvenile offenders in Boston, so I've seen a fairly wide range of students. I can and do tutor a very broad range of subjects, but I'm happiest tutoring history, the GRE, and the SAT--the first because I've loved it since I could read, and the latter two because I think they are highly solvable and I want to make sure students get a chance to learn how to solve them. I'm a firm believer in tutoring in the style of a conversation..."
Bryn "... I love tutoring art history and introducing students to a discipline that they may not be as familiar with, and also have a passion for American and European history. For me, making a real connection with a student is a crucial part of tutoring. I am incredibly personable, relaxed, and patient and am able to set students at ease..."
