"... Both my graduate and undergraduate studies have explored how the brain effectively learns information, and I look forward to opportunities where I can share what I have researched with others. Given my background, I am proficient in math, science, and psychology, and can help my students apply the principles of scientific writing to create clear and concise essays. Having recently taken the GREs, I look forward to sharing strategies for effective test-taking and SAT preparation. In my spare time I love running, and am a member of a women's running club..."

"... I am a firm believer in problem-based learning, and encourage students to ask questions and think for themselves. Although I will not provide answers or a quick and simple fix, I will provide students with guidance and encouragement as they work through problems and learn to apply familiar concepts to unfamiliar situations. I also believe strongly in teaching “to the student,” and therefore adapt my teaching to fit each individual’s needs and learning styles..."

"I have tutored for the last seven years and am always excited to do it. Since I graduated from Princeton University in 2011 I've also taught standardized test prep around the New York City area in prestigious schools such as Ivy Prep and E-Math, as well as for the Department of Education through 1 on 1 Academic Tutors. I have stimulated hundreds of kids to dramatically improve their math, English and writing scores on the SAT and SHSAT and get into their dream colleges or high schools..."

"I graduated from Brown with a degree in History and took a wide variety of courses during my time as an undergraduate – from Russian literature to Buddhist philosophy to modern dance. I thoroughly enjoy the process of helping students improve their performance in the classroom and on standardized tests. My goal is to help students develop a passion, or at least an interest, in subject areas they may have learned to dislike or fear. I build students' confidence by helping them understand the connection between areas of study that challenge them, and other subjects they may already feel comfortable with. I believe that writing, reading and analysis are not innate abilities, but rather skills that each student must work to develop..."

"I was born and raised in the Seattle area, and I am a junior at the University of Washington pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. If Mathematics and Physics are where you tend to struggle academically, then I can help you! I have helped family members study for the SAT and ACT as well as catered to numerous middle school and high school students' needs for guidance when it comes to ‘study strategies.’ I have completed extensive coursework in Trigonometry, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Matrix Algebra, Geometry, Physics, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Multi-Variable Calculus. Although I know that achieving high grades and test scores is important, my first priority will be centered around assimilation with the subject..."

"...I firmly believe that everyone is smart in their own way, and I love to discover and appreciate each student's way of learning and thinking. I believe that we all construct our own knowledge through experience - we learn by doing, by experimenting, trying, and experiencing - and I encourage my students to try out and adjust their own strategies, instead of always expecting them to do it my way. I am an artist, writer and musician (I led a folk band for 5 years). I am an avid public transit rider and often get around by bicycle..."

"I'm passionate about teaching and making standardized test prep as fun as possible for teenagers. When I'm not tutoring I can be found working as an EMT on a local ambulance, playing rugby, or running on the trails in East Rock Park.

"... I love tutoring art history and introducing students to a discipline that they may not be as familiar with, and also have a passion for American and European history.

"I'm an undergraduate at Rice University.
