Award-Winning SAT Verbal Tutors in Washington, DC
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. I also have experience working with ESL students as I previously volunteered to teach English in a classroom setting for a group of students aged 16-24 during a 5 week volunteer project in India..."
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..."
Michael "...Louis, I worked in schools failing the No Child Left Behind standards and began tutoring with Varsity. Even once I started law school at George Washington University, I kept tutoring, started an education law society, and volunteered to work at an education-reform non-profit. Now that I have gotten my JD and passed the Virginia Bar, I have even gotten a job working in the field of Educational Civil Rights. I really love teaching, whether that involves writing songs, plays and poems with my younger students to make reading “less boring,” figuring out good mnemonic devices for remembering math formulas with my ACT/SAT students, or puzzling through pesky logic problems with my LSAT students..."
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..."
Michael "...Throughout my time at UMD, I tutored many students in a number of different subjects, ranging from algebra and statistics to psychology and criminal justice. I have experience tutoring students of all ages and academic backgrounds. While I enjoy tutoring a wide array of subjects, my passion lies with numbers..."
Akash "...I have taught in both one-on-one and classroom settings for the past five years and would love to use this experience to help you learn. I have worked with students at all skill levels in a variety of subjects. I am someone who is not discouraged easily and is always trying new ways to better serve a student's specific learning style and goals..."

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..."
Brigham Young University - BS, Psychology
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology - MA, Clinical Counseling
Alexander "...I have a passion for subjects such as French and history, and find it very enjoyable to teach others about them and watch them improve. As a tutor, I strive to pass on the same reinforced knowledge I possess to others. In the past I have helped many students of all ages reach their goals and discover new ways to learn and think about the world..."
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"..."
