Megan "...I graduated from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. I majored in English and received high honors for my senior thesis on women's poetry of the Beat Generation. While in school I volunteered tutoring adults in ESL and GED preparation..."
Laura "I'm a graduate of St. John's College and Georgetown Law. Teaching is in my blood-my mother is a teacher, and she instilled in me the love of helping someone reach his or her potential with compassion and enthusiasm. I have been tutoring since middle school and I don't ever plan on stopping! My favorite subject to tutor is the LSAT, but I also LOVE English, US History, and World History..."

Malikia "I'm currently a rising Junior at Bowie State University majoring in Business with a focus on Accounting. I'm pursuing my Bachelor's and intend to take a year off for traveling before proceeding with getting a Masters degree in Accounting. I'm best at relating to students on their level and applying the subject to their personal life..."
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..."
Michelle "... Since graduation, I have taught seven years as a special education teacher in an elementary school, tutored students after school in reading and math, at home tutoring, and ran a program for high school credit recovery in that district. My favorite subject to tutor is reading because reading lays the foundation for all other learning. I am passionate about instilling the love of learning in others and I use that passion to help students become successful not only in what I am teaching but in life as well..."
Nicole "I graduated from Carleton College with a degree in History, but I quickly found myself teaching mathematics at a small private school in Connecticut. I've been lucky to teach everything from study skills and organization to Pre-Algebra, Calculus, and even an elective in Medieval History. I am currently teaching myself Latin so that I may eventually enter a program to earn my PhD in Late Antique History..."
Jennifer "I have over five years of tutoring experience, predominantly as a Reading and Writing tutor. My students have included elementary school students just barely gaining an appreciation for reading, first year college students seeking assistance in essay writing, and adult learners wishing to advance their reading skills after years of struggling. I understand that everyone learns and builds confidence differently and, therefore, I tailor my lessons to suit individual needs..."
Christina "I am very enthusiastic about helping you or your child reach your learning goals this year! I am a Masters student at Georgetown University in the School of Foreign Service, where I study Refugee and Humanitarian Issues. I love English and History, and minored in the former in undergraduate at George Washington University (with a major in International Affairs.) My tutoring style is very flexible: I am always interested in trying new methods of memorization--from mnemonics to interactive games and creative activities--and appreciate that everyone learns differently. I received very high scores on the AP English, US History, European History, World History, and Psychology exams, and attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions..."
Ruby "I have ample experience tutoring in a variety of subjects and with diverse groups of children. I've tutored children since I was in high school myself, working with kids on interview and SAT prep, college applications, social studies, biology, chemistry, math, statistics, writing and various APs. Since high school, I have tutored Spanish-speakers in English, worked extensively in diverse, low-income childcare settings with typically-developing and developmentally disabled children, and taught a psychology course to middle and high schoolers."
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..."
