David "...During college, I spent a semester in Brussels, Belgium, where I honed my French and ate far more chocolate than is ever advisable. After graduation, I moved to China, where I taught English to high school students and started a tutoring business for kids from ages 5-17. While I tutor on broad range of subjects, my favorites are history and French..."

Tiffany "...I’m telling you this because it has made me a student and a tutor that understands, empathizes, and has patience for those who need a bit of extra help. I genuinely LOVE learning, I study Mathematics and Statistics in my spare time, I have actually read the classics (not because they were assigned but) because I have a hunger for knowledge and truth and beauty. My dual degrees are in Economics and Social Cultural Anthropology from UCSD which is a school ranked in the top 20 in the WORLD..."

Lauren "...Over the past few years, I've taught students at a wide range of levels including: College literature and composition classes at UC Berkeley, Middle school writing classes, High School Essay Writing and SAT Test Prep classes, SAT/PSAT tutoring, and High school tutoring (English and History). I'm fluent in French and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris for a year during my previous life as a Historian. When I'm not tutoring or working on my dissertation, I do some freelance writing. It's a cliche to say that my writing informs my teaching while my teaching improves my writing, but it's also true: the constant effort to improve my own work helps me to understand what my students are going through, while my work as a teacher and tutor gives me a fresh perspective on my writing..."

Starting in college, I tutored students in economics and statistics, and also work with clients on subject test areas for the Advanced Placement exams, as well as standardized test preparation such as for the SAT I and II, GRE and LSAT. I especially enjoy helping students prepare for standardized tests because I remember how helpful a compelling guide and mentor can be during the often stressful process of testing and preparation for it..."
Lauren "...In college and graduate school, I have taken many math and science courses and have 4 years of hands-on science lab experience. I love to explain science, especially biology, because I think it is exciting and has many applications in life. My tutoring style is to explain each step so that students learn why they are doing each particular part of the problem, and can apply that knowledge to other problems..."

I have worked with many different kinds of learners during my career as a public school teacher, and I understand that every student has their own unique way of growing and of mastering skills.
