Award-Winning SAT Writing and Language Tutors in Silver Spring, MD
Charles A battle-tested veteran of the New York private school circuit, I graduated college in 2013 and now teach German in DC. I lived in German-speaking Europe for many years, and I majored its language, culture and history. I fully understand the many competing demands on a modern student's schedule. My tutees and I therefore tailor-make lesson plans based on their personal strengths and areas for improvement in order to fully capitalize on our time together.

Seth ...of school gives me an advantage in helping students. I intimately remember the struggles of trying to learn material that just wouldn't click in my head. Given that, I like to go about tutoring from that place of understanding. I believe that just because the material doesn't get through to a student, that doesn't mean it's unable to be learned. I'm excited to find new, creative ways to help in the education process.... Students learn in many different ways. Just because they don't understand subject material taught in one manner does not mean they won't understand it looking through a different lens. My philosophy is to try different approaches to teaching the material until one of them clicks.

During my time off from school I enjoy gardening, fishing, cooking, and when I have the chance, traveling throughout...
