Akshaya "...in Public Policy. During college, I also took all my pre-medical classes and plan to attend medical school in the future. I tutored math, science, Latin, and English throughout high school and the first years of college.

Adam "...In high school I tutored some younger students in math and in SAT prep, and in college I did a little private tutoring for the LSAT. I most enjoy tutoring in reading comprehension for the SATs and LSAT and believe I have some techniques that can help anyone improve their scores. In my spare time I enjoy playing pickup basketball games and some video games..."
Christina "... I love social studies, sciences, and tests! I genuinely enjoy the critical thinking that standardized tests requires, and love to pass on test-taking strategies to those that I tutor. My favorite MCAT section is the Critical Analysis and Reading Skills, and my favorite SAT section is Verbal. I think these areas are challenging, but every student has immense potential for improvement once they discover the right strategies..."
Tiyata "... 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. I began working as a pre-college mentor while at Maryland and it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had..."

Kira "... I currently work as an attorney for the Department of Justice, graduated from Ball State University 13 years ago and went straight to law school at Washington and Lee University right here in Virginia. One of my favorite parts of my current job is interacting with law student interns and paralegals and teaching them about the law. I do not get to do that often enough though, and so I thought of tutoring as a great way to be able to teach more students..."
Lina "... My specialties are getting my students into college by helping them achieve strong scores and write strong essays, and teaching students of all ages in reading comprehension, writing and verbal skills. I have a passion for teaching verbal and critical reading sections of standardized tests- I help my students "beat" the SAT and ACT. My other strength is the college app..."

Ann "... While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Mathematics (Statistics and Algebra) and Chinese. In my experience, I have found that the best way to help a student learn is to find what works best for them. I firmly believe there is not just one method of learning and that by adjusting my teaching methods to cater to my students, it will allow them to best learn and understand their subject matter..."

Seth "...At Syracuse, I worked with a program called Literacy Corps, tutoring students from all over the city. After graduating, I entered an AmeriCorps program in Pennsylvania, teaching full time for a year. I feel that having tutored for so long and being so recently out of school gives me an advantage in helping students..."

Timothy "...As an older brother, former babysitter, and camp counselor, I have always enjoyed working with children of all ages. It was my own youthful fascination with the natural world which led me to study science - the kid in me is what helps me connect with children. I place an emphasis on giving each child the tools they need to figure things out for themselves, especially for math and hard sciences such as chemistry. When students learn the correct way to approach problems, they learn not only their subject, but they learn "how to learn"..."
