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..."

While I am no longer in a classroom during the day, I still enjoy helping students reach their maximum academic potential..."

While my formal tutoring experience has emphasized English, I have also informally tutored political science, government, and anthropology. I am very passionate about the social sciences!

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.."
Eric "I graduated from SUNY Buffalo with my Bachelor's and Master's of Science in Mechanical Engineering and continued to pursue an additional Master's of Science in Computer Science. My tutoring focus is in STEM as that correlates with my background and what I am most passionate about.
