Award-Winning History Tutors in Washington, DC
Lindsey "...I know first-hand the challenges associated with manipulating equations and writing extended essays. My favorite subjects to tutor are Math, Physics, History, and Engineering. During tutoring sessions, I strive to make students comfortable with the material and confident in their abilities. I'm glad to work with you when you feel in over your head, when you want that little bit of extra polish, and at all times in between..."

Eva "...I like to inject fun and humor into learning and am the product of some really excellent educators who I like to think inform my teaching style. My tutoring experience began nearly four years ago when I began working with an organization that helps prepare under-served students for the SAT and the college admissions process. I enjoyed breaking students' preconceived notions about what they could and could not do, and I value the interpersonal relationships with my students that I was able to create and maintain to this day. I graduated with my undergrad in 2012 with degrees in International Relations and Spanish, and I was awarded Distinguished Honors in International Relations..."
Matt "...If I had to pick a favorite, I’d say reading; when I help a student with comprehension, they gain a little more appreciation and enjoyment of academics. My teaching philosophy is student-centered and gradual. I try to show the student they can accomplish anything, given a steady pace and work ethic..."
Joe "After graduating from American University with a B.A. in Government and Political Science, I began a long and varied career in both the non-profit and business worlds. As a political candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates, an executive director at a regional non-profit, and an entrepreneur, I am able to bring to the student valuable life experiences along within an academic setting. My professional career has taught me the value of active listening and working with those from a wide variety of personal backgrounds and experience..."
West "I tutored at a writing center while an undergraduate student, and became an Advanced Certified Tutor through the College Reading and Learning Association. I also taught English classes in Russia for 2 years. I enjoy tutoring because of the opportunity it presents to constantly adapt lessons and teaching styles to best meet the needs of individual students..."
Parth "I am an enthusiastic and energetic tutor. As a Govermnent and Economics double major, I am more inclined to the social sciences and humanities, and can offer my best work in those subjects. These include history, writing, etc..."
Holly "...My favorite subject to both teach and tutor is anything related to history - examining different perspectives and their influence on later decisions is something which I find truly fascinating. I earned a degree in English Literature, with a minor in History, from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, GA, as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching, with a concentration in early childhood and elementary education, from Pacific University in Eugene, OR. In the future, I hope to teach aspiring teachers in a college of education..."
Stephani "My name is Stephani and I am a recent graduate of Colgate University. While at Colgate, I majored in International Relations & Peace and Conflict Studies and I studied abroad in Geneva, Switzerland. In my spare time, I like to run, read, cook, and watch sports with my friends (go saints!)..."
Adam "...You will always need writing, which will explain my dedication towards fostering proficiency with it. I believe education to be necessary to both living a good life and the strength of democracy here and abroad as well as its being one of the most imminently powerful things on Earth; as such, my tutoring style is rigorous and detailed. However, I have fun teaching and use a liberal amount of humor and personal attention so that anyone I tutor enjoys themselves (with the full knowledge that my students are not the only ones who will learn something)..."
Akash "...I think it is easy for my students to stay engaged and focused. I have an encouraging presence as a teacher and think that this goes a long way in helping students learn. I have taken, and done well on, a variety of standardized tests and have come to understand universal and recurring concepts for testing. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Neuroscience and Education to inform my teaching with new insights about the brain..."
