"I know how hard and stressful it is to take standardized exams, as I myself have gone through it all, and this has motivated me to want to help make the process easier for those who are going through it. I am also very knowledgeable with college and medical school applications and will be happy to help go through the entire process and review essays. As listed above, I used to be a competitive cello player under the guidance of 2 Houston Symphony cellists and can give cello lessons if requested.

"I like to develop study guides with the student to help them pinpoint key topics and through the process engage in comprehensive review of the material. I let the students lead the direction of the sessions through their questions rather than lecturing. I am accessible and flexible with scheduling. I aim to relate the concepts to the student by explaining the information in everyday contexts and develop tricks and mnemonics to best grasp the material."

"I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students. The majority of my clients come to me for ACT test prep, but I have tutored many other subjects, ranging from elementary language arts and SSAT/ISEE prep to Algebra II/Trigonometry and college writing. My goal is to teach my students the strategies, skills, and information necessary to succeed in their classes or on standardized tests. In addition, I strive to foster their independence and increase their self-confidence. I have a love of learning, and I hope to instill that in my students. In my free time, I enjoy going to live ...

" I enjoy working with students on French, writing skills, essay editing, American History, LSAT prep, middle school math, geography, government and organizational skills. I treat each student individually, and tailor our sessions to his or her learning styles, and aspirations (and of course, those of their parents).

"In the more immediate future, I hope to achieve a master’s degree in international relations. My studies have provided me the knowledge and skills to be a useful tutor not only in political science and international studies, but also history, English, writing, American politics and government, research, and literature. In addition, for the last nine years or so, I have studied Spanish. Since freshman year of high school, I have studied Spanish each year, building on the foundation I built in the previous year. In the fall of 2010, I was fortunate enough to study in Bilbao, Spain, where I lived with a host family and took all of my courses ...

"Because every person is capable of understanding this logic, every person has latent writing talent, whether they are aware of it or not. I pride myself on being able to bring out this latent talent. I genuinely like working with people and helping them understand language in their own way, and I am good at doing so, as is evidenced by the fact that every one of my students has improved their grades under my tutelage. I also am a very good standardized test taker and teacher, largely for the same reasons I am a good English teacher. I help people see the patterns and logic of tests, and as is the case with my English clients, every one of my ...
