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..."
Hannah "...Most recently I earned a Master of Science degree from the University of California San Francisco where I became a registered nurse, nurse-midwife, and women's health nurse practitioner. I am passionate about teaching and education, and while I am no longer in the classroom full time, I find that the education and counseling I provide to my patients is still the most fulfilling part of my work. I believe personalization, trust, and respect are the most important parts of a successful tutor-student relationship and I work hard to build those with each student I work with..."

Rachael "... For the past five years, I have mastered a range of educational strategies while tutoring students individually and in large groups, developing curricula and mentoring college applicants. In this time, I have spent thousands of hours working with students, and I feel well-equipped to work with your child. My tutoring style begins without any assumptions about a student’s needs, which I believe is critical to their success. The advantage of tutoring versus a large classroom setting is that I can direct lessons to your child’s particular struggles and abilities..."
