Alina "Learning has always been a passion of mine, and I strive to impart that passion to my students. I do not train my students to recite facts and figures. Rather, I encourage them to become self-motivated learners by creating a positive experience that is tailored to each individual..."

Jordan "...I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge (England), where I earned a masters degree in engineering. While I tutor a number of subjects, math and physics are my favorites. I was a teaching assistant at Duke University for several semesters, and helped my peers with learning physics, material science, and engineering - so algebra now seems like a breeze! I'm a naturally good test-taker who’s developed several of my own test-taking strategies and love passing them on to others - I think half of acing a test is just understanding how to answer the questions..."

Rachael "I graduated from WashU in 2013, with a major in Environmental Policy. Although I'm happy to tutor most subjects, my strongest suit is writing. I read my friends' papers all the time - and really enjoy doing it! I can read anything from college essays, creative writing, or help you with the SAT writing/reading sections. I am also happy to help you brainstorm and talk through ideas on papers you haven't yet started. In my free time, I love reading, writing, cooking, hiking (or really, doing almost anything outside), and spending time with friends.."
