Award-Winning HSPT Tutors in Washington, DC
Brett "...I double majored in Classics and Classical Civilizations, focusing on linguistics, grammar, ancient philosophy and ancient government. While at Colby, I tutored Latin and Ancient Greek, and I occasionally tutored students learning Roman and Greek History. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Latin, European History, and anything to do with grammar! My teaching style is fluid; I like to incorporate other disciplines so that I can help my students develop their weaknesses by playing to their strengths..."
Celine "...I have also gained experience working with students as a middle school teacher and as a mentor in an elementary school reading program. After teaching at the Washington Middle School for Girls in DC, I earned an Ed.M in Education Policy and Management at The Harvard Graduate School of Education and currently work as a project manager in education assessment. While I am no longer in a classroom during the day, I still enjoy helping students reach their maximum academic potential..."
Margaret "...Although I am currently on hiatus from the academic world, I'm considering pursuing a law degree in the future. In high school, I got my first exposure to tutoring by helping my peers with the oftentimes challenging content of our AP Calculus course. From there I took my experience to college, where I tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in math and English..."
Paul "...I am comfortable tutoring in many subjects, including French, Math, English and standardized testing such as the ACT, SAT, ISEE and LSAT. I have significant experience as both a one-on-one high school tutor during college and teaching high school students after college. I find that I am always able to make the material simple and relatable for the student that I am tutoring - it is a question of presenting the material in a manner that is easy to understand..."

I lived in German-speaking Europe for many years, and I majored its language, culture and history. I fully understand the many competing demands on a modern student's schedule..."
Nora "... I can comfortably provide tutoring in Algebra and/or Geometry as well as time-saving strategies for the math sections of standardized tests. In my off-hours, I indulge in a wide range of interests and hobbies. Since I was ten years old, crafts have held a special place in my heart; embroidery, crochet, and wire-and-bead jewelry claim most of my crafting time, and I design Celtic knotwork-inspired cross-stitched bookmarks. I've enjoyed gardening for nearly as long as crafting, and I love nurturing a vegetable or herb plant from seed to harvest..."
Rayna "By helping adolescents to define themselves based on their own talents and a valuable self-worth instead of trying to meet someone else’s expectations, we can build students' confidence and academic success. We all have the right and responsibility to accept ourselves by defining who we are on our own terms and knowing what we stand for. This intricate balance can be achieved through increasing the availability and visibility of positive role models, advocating for participation in extracurricular activities, and educating students about goal setting and having high expectations for themselves.."
