"I’m currently working on my thesis for an M.F.A. in nonfiction writing at Columbia University, but I started off as a field biologist, studying birds in Alaska. As a tutor, I draw on a wide range of tools, from organizational and time-management skills to interpersonal finesse and a strong knowledge base in English, writing, science, and high-school-level math. To my early education and five years working in the field of biology I have added years of work as an editor and writer."

"This is true both of the college students and of the high- and middle-schoolers I have taught. When I ran the test-prep program in Missouri, numerous students experienced high levels of success in improving not only their test scores, but also the skills these tests measure. I taught students who started at 25 on the ACT and ended up at 34, but at least as satisfying were those students who started at 14 and eventually achieved 19. More important than such external measurements, however, is the individual student's knowledge that he or she has come into possession of, and internalized, a set of tools useful for further learning. I've edited ...

"As a longtime Tucson native, I decided to come back home to Tucson after graduation and am currently in the process of applying to medical schools. Having taken several standardized tests throughout the years, including the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, and a variety of different courses as an Economics major, pre-medicine student, I feel I can help in many different subject areas. I've served in a variety of tutoring roles over the years, but the one I am most proud of was when I helped a 9th grader in algebra a few years ago. As I worked with him throughout the semester, I was able to raise his grade from an "F" to a "B" by the end of the ...

"Andrews in Scotland, where I earned an MA in Geography and International Relations. (I am American, so I don’t have an accent!)

"My college focus is in the areas of Biology and Chemistry because of my love for nature, interest in the environment and a desire to be a part of the advances that scientific research can create. However, despite my studies at the UA my real strengths for tutoring lie in the Literary and Verbal realms of academia. A voracious reader, I grew up surrounded by books. This extended into high school where I excelled in my English classes, notably in AP English Language and Composition and AP English Literature. I scored 740 and 800 on my SAT Writing and Reading sections, respectively, and also took the SAT Subject Test for Literature and earned a ...

"I graduated cum laude in May of 2012 from New York University with a BA in history and a minor in chemistry. I am currently taking a year off in-between my undergraduate coursework and medical school in order to conduct neuroscience research at the University of Arizona's Tucson campus. My diverse background in both the sciences and humanities means that I can tutor a variety of topics ranging from literature to organic chemistry, including the SAT and ACT.
