Blake "...I am extremely excited to be tutoring for Varsity Tutors and to build a wonderful learning community. As a teacher resource coordinator of special education, I believe all children have the ability to learn and have the right to an appropriate education. This belief has driven me throughout my career and motivated me to become an instructional leader compassionate to every learner. This philosophy is rooted in my special education experiences as both a teacher and coordinator..."

I have a love of History, Literature, and Reading, all of which I am able to tutor. As a native Spanish speaker, I can help those who wish to improve their Spanish-speaking skills or beginners wishing to learn the language. I can tutor various standardized tests, including the SAT, ACT, and most SAT Subject Tests..."

Anne "I currently work as a math teacher in Brooklyn and would love the opportunity to work with you to help you to not only achieve your immediate goals (passing a class, test, etc), but also foster a deeper understanding of the subject matter that will help you into the future. I'm certified to teach grades 7-12 which means I possess a mastery of pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus, trigonometry, statistics and AP AB and BC Calculus. The liberal arts curriculum I took at Stanford University has ensured that I not only can tutor students in technical fields but also humanities. I'm a voracious reader, especially of historical non-fiction, so I would especially enjoy tutoring for history and English in addition to mathematics. I am a savvy test taker and would be able to teach your child not only the content necessary to excel at the SAT and other standardized tests, but also how to utilize strategies to maximize efficiency and accuracy. In teaching, I enjoy connecting the subject matter to topics that would not necessarily seem relevant to the lesson in order to engage the student on a deeper level..."
Justin "...I want to provide the student with a meaningful experience. That is to say, I aim to cultivate an appreciation for math, science, and/or the humanities that will last into college and their career. Unwilling to compromise my love for language or my affinity for math and problem solving, I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Computational Linguistics, the interface between computer science and human language..."
Andrew "...I got a combined SAT score of 2320 during my college application process, and I want to pass on my skills to you so that you can get into the college that you want to attend. The SAT might seem intimidating, but it's mostly based on skills that you can acquire and develop with diligent practice. I walk my students through the test problems, guiding them to reason through it themselves so that the problem-solving method becomes ingrained..."
Lillian "...I completed my undergraduate degree in 2013 at Columbia University, where I majored in English and Biology. After graduation, I spent a year working at a pediatric HIV clinic in Lesotho on a Princeton in Africa fellowship, and later, I completed my Master's in Public Health at University College Dublin on a Mitchell Scholarship. Having completed many applications in the course of my college and postgraduate degrees, I have significant experience in personal statement editing and application counseling. I am also happy to tutor for SAT critical reading and writing sections, MCAT, essay writing, and English courses..."
Lily "...Ultimately, I got a very strong score, ranking me in the 96th percentile. I have since graduated cum laude from Tufts University with a BA in English and minors in Art History and Media Studies. As a member of the National Honor Society and Peer Leaders, I decided to use my experience to help others. I knew there had to be other students out there who were extremely bright and simply didn’t excel at standardized tests..."
Noah "...I have extensive experience in liberal arts subjects (writing skills, critical reading, etc.) and also have a history of success on multiple standardized tests, having scored in at least the 98th percentile on the ISEE, ACT, SAT, and LSAT. While in college, I was president of the Tufts Debate Team for 2 years, have traveled internationally competing in debate tournaments, and tutored extensively on campus. I have years of experience teaching students of all ages in different subjects, and I am excited to work with new clients to help them find success! Whether you are looking to score in the 99th percentile or just to get through a challenging course, I would love to help you reach your potential..."

Laura "...I was a pre-med, molecular biology major for my first two years at Princeton, and while I ended up deciding not to pursue a career in the sciences, I took many science classes in high school (AP) and in college, and still enjoy these subjects. Since graduating from Princeton, I have moved to Manhattan where I have started a job as an analyst at a private equity firm. I tutored professionally in Princeton for three years, and am excited to continue working with students as a Varsity Tutors tutor..."
