Award-Winning Social studies Tutors in Washington, DC
Alex "...I specialize in academic essay writing—research, thesis development, structure, and style—but I also love to help with college applications, personal statements, studying and organization skills, as well as SAT/ACT, AP, and IB test prep. I majored in History with a focus in post-1945 U.S. Social, Cultural, and Political History..."
Benjamin "...Yes, the body requires exercise to remain healthy and to develop further, but so too does the mind! The brain is metaphorically a muscle that can be developed through repetition of the correct training patterns. While attending William and Mary, I continued my passionate pursuit of foreign language studies, particularly French Literature and Spanish immersion over the summers away from school. During winter and spring vacation from college, I tutored high school students who were preparing for all levels of Spanish exams in my hometown of Arlington, Virginia..."
Quynh "...To arrive at an answer based on sound analysis is rewarding and provides an argument that's difficult to dispute. I believe education is a way to a more enriching and enlightening life, and to share that thirst to learn more is what I hope share in tutoring. Outside of academia, my main passion is traveling with friends and family..."
Michelle "... I received my Bachelor of Science and Masters of Arts in Special Education with a focus in Math. Since graduation, I have taught seven years as a special education teacher in an elementary school, tutored students after school in reading and math, at home tutoring, and ran a program for high school credit recovery in that district. My favorite subject to tutor is reading because reading lays the foundation for all other learning..."
Dominique "...where I pursued my passions in acting, working with children, debate, writing and international affairs. I have continued these passions in college by volunteering with children in Indonesia, participating in my school's debate team, and doing 5 professional internships. As a tutor, I consider my greatest strengths to be in English, History and French due to my academic background..."
Daniel "...I have been tutoring since my high school years and have experience with students of all ages and from a variety of different backgrounds. My most recent teaching and tutoring experiences include teaching Spanish as an online teaching assistant, English at an elementary school in Ecuador, and general study and time management skills at my university. I am fluent in English, Russian and Spanish and am approaching advanced proficiency in Mandarin Chinese, and can tutor any of these languages..."
Holly "...I've tutored U.S. History at the elementary, middle, and high school levels; World History at the middle school level; Earth Science and reading at the elementary level; and writing at both the elementary and graduate levels. My favorite subject to both teach and tutor is anything related to history - examining different perspectives and their influence on later decisions is something which I find truly fascinating. I earned a degree in English Literature, with a minor in History, from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, GA, as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching, with a concentration in early childhood and elementary education, from Pacific University in Eugene, OR..."
Megan "...I also led extra-curricular activities in environmental education, drama, music, art, and writing. I graduated from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. I majored in English and received high honors for my senior thesis on women's poetry of the Beat Generation..."
Phill "Part of why I make a great tutor is my ability and desire to make connections and provide context—to take seemingly isolated facts and notes and show how they fit together into a whole that can be understood by my students, rather than memorized for a moment and quickly forgotten. My goal is always to lead to true understanding, showing how ideas fit together into a coherent whole, a whole that includes connections to other subjects.."

Ariana "...My essays and poetry have been recognized by numerous contests and conferences including the National PTA Reflections Arts Program, the Scholastic Writing Awards, and the Southeastern Writing Center Conference. I particularly love tutoring writing, language, and literature because becoming better communicators and readers enhances students’ understanding of the world around them, ability to connect with others, and opportunities for self-expression. In a practical sense, improving this set of skills also raises verbal test scores and improves students’ marketability since communicating well is a vital skill in any career..."
