Award-Winning SAT Math Tutors in Washington, DC
Molly "I love learning, and I believe every subject can be fun and interesting. I studied Linguistics in college, which trained me in the critical thinking skills necessary for teaching Grammar, Foreign Languages, ESL, Math, and standardized test prep. I started tutoring when I was 15, and I was trained as a Student Teaching Intern with Breakthrough in 2010..."
David "I am a graduate of Yale University, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Having a passion for the sciences, I worked in various research positions from studying endangered desert tortoises in the Mojave Desert to studying the population genetics of ornamental fishes of the Amazon. I realized I missed the human connection and pursued medical school at the University of Connecticut; where I've found medicine combines both my love of science and helping others..."
Leonard "I am a Florida State grad living in New York City, and I have spent the last year working as an editor for a literary agent. As that implies, I am a bit of a reader in my spare time and I very much like fantasy/sci-fi. I have a computer science degree, and I've put that to (questionably) good use by being far too interested in video game development and Android devices..."
Kori "... This gives them ownership of their learning while ensuring that they have mastered the material. I have been involved with education and outreach activities for over 15 years. Throughout high school I tutored and taught middle school students through a program that aimed to prepare these potential first generation college students to succeed in their high schools’ college prep coursework. I continued teaching during college and graduate school where I was a teaching assistant for several undergraduate Physics courses and a lab instructor for an introductory Earth Science course..."

Rebecca "...As a tutor, I love the challenge of transforming something seemingly complex into something easy to understand. I work closely with students to ensure that they not only learn what the right answer is, but why it is right and how to apply that information to other questions. I scored a 36 on the ACT and love to help students unlock the challenges of that exam, as well as the SAT and PSAT..."
Tiyata "...Math is so much fun for me! Typically you follow rules and the answer just happens, this is awesome! I also love tutoring/ guiding students through the college selection experience. As one of the first members of my family to earn a college degree, I had very few mentors and went about the process blindly. I decided I wouldn’t allow anyone else I knew go through the same thing..."
Marco "...As the middleman between the math department and chemistry departments professors I spent time explaining my work in two different ways. My research was funded by the National Science Foundation under the Mathematics in Life Sciences Fellowship. In my spare time I enjoy East and West Coast swing dancing, along with casual bodybuilding/power-lifting..."
Alexander "...I feel this allows the student to behave more comfortably, and in turn, get more out of the material that they are learning. This strategy has worked especially well in the Baltimore City Prison. I do recognize that each student is an individual and may have different ways of learning material..."
