Jennifer "I’m a DC-based journalist, and I just finished up my Masters of Science in Journalism at Northwestern University, with a concentration in magazine writing and editing. Prior to pursuing journalism, I worked as a grant writer and a program and case manager for New York City-based non-profits. I graduated from Georgetown University with a Bachelors in Science in International Politics, with a concentration in International Security Studies. I have extensive experience tutoring high school and college-level Spanish..."
Christopher "...Reading and writing are my specialty; words are something I have always found to have great power, and assisting others in expressing their thoughts in nuanced, articulate ways has become a great passion of mine. I try to find a balance between structure and creative thinking when it comes to my tutoring style, and I firmly believe that everyone is capable of achieving great things given the right environment and skill set. Often, people discover my educational history and assume that I am an academic robot: all work and no fun..."
Kelliann "... I specialize in teaching students who are in danger of failing the state mandated test, the HSPA. I have yet to have one of my students fail this test! I am a very motivated, upbeat, effervescent person who is passionate about teaching. It is rewarding to help determined students become successful..."
Naomi "...in Curriculum and Instruction at Boston College. I also had the opportunity to direct and manage an International Student program at these institutions and expand my enthusiasm for influencing and guiding youth in a positive light. During my experience as an educator, my passion for equal opportunity for all students developed as my heart for my students continued to grow; I realized firsthand how every individual deserves a quality education..."
Carmen "...I have tutored middle school children in English, Math, and Social Studies in the past, and while in college I often helped other students with their writing. I tutor many different subjects and enjoy prepping for tests, especially the SAT, ACT, and GRE, but my personal passions are English and History. I particularly love helping students to craft strong (and grammatically sound) essays on any subject by working from a compelling thesis statement to a detailed outline to an excellent and convincing final paper..."
Christopher "... My experience with teaching has come in the form of both training co-workers one-on-one at Deutsche Bank as well as giving group lessons to UCLA students on the subjects of public speaking, debate, and negotiation. I have also worked with UCLA students on essay writing. I tutor a wide range of topics. In terms of High School academics, I can tutor for the SAT and SAT subject tests, multiple AP classes including History, English, and Poly Sci, and general High School courses including History, English, Economics, Social Studies, and Geography..."

Alexandra "...Villa El Salvador taught me how to connect with students from a completely different linguistic and cultural background. Finally, Chapman University’s Center for Academic Success taught me how to expand my range from basic reading and writing skills to different areas of literature, essay construction and writing, and foreign languages, specifically German and Spanish. My strongest subjects include reading comprehension, phonics, grammar, essay construction and writing, German language (all levels) and Spanish language (through the intermediate level). Although it is difficult for me to choose a favorite, I would have to say essay construction and writing because I believe that a student's ability to express themselves intelligently and creatively is the foundation of a strong education as well as a successful career path..."
Katie "... It's exciting for me to help open doors for students to new worlds of understanding. Beyond being passionate about language and communication, I believe very strongly in being prepared for standardized testing--I worked hard to have the opportunity to attend the college of my choice, and a large part of that was getting my test scores to be where I needed them. At the end of the day, testing is about logic and reasoning and developing tools to help under pressure is crucial..."
Mary "... What a gift it is to enhance our capacities to express our views and arguments. For more than fifteen years, I have worked with students as a University teacher both in England and in New York, Chicago, Ann Arbor and California. We have developed writing, enhanced critical reading capacity, honed grammar and strengthened subject-based knowledge..."
Alex "...The BWF exist as a select group of students hired to act as writing mentors and editors for the Brown community, and as part of the program, each participant had to first participate in and complete a semester's long course in writing styles and approaches to editing. In 2012, I was awarded an AT&T New Media Fellowship, an award given to those students who show promise in the combination of writing and new media. My grant took me to Avignon, France where I produced a web-documentary (primarily photo, video, and essay coverage) of the Festival D'Avignon, an annual, international theatre festival..."
