Award-Winning Test Prep Tutors in Washington, DC
Celine "...After teaching at the Washington Middle School for Girls in DC, I earned an Ed.M in Education Policy and Management at The Harvard Graduate School of Education and currently work as a project manager in education assessment. While I am no longer in a classroom during the day, I still enjoy helping students reach their maximum academic potential. As a tutor, I first focus on understanding a student’s academic needs and then work with the student to ensure that he or she grasps an understanding of the particular subject..."
Rayna "By helping adolescents to define themselves based on their own talents and a valuable self-worth instead of trying to meet someone else’s expectations, we can build students' confidence and academic success. We all have the right and responsibility to accept ourselves by defining who we are on our own terms and knowing what we stand for. This intricate balance can be achieved through increasing the availability and visibility of positive role models, advocating for participation in extracurricular activities, and educating students about goal setting and having high expectations for themselves.."

Joseph "...I spend most of my free time running, watching movies, and just spending time with friends. I would love to help you (or your child) with any of the subjects listed.

Howard "...Algebra is one of the fundamental topics of Math and Calculus can be applied to an array of different subjects. I believe that Math builds upon itself and without a proper foundation it is impossible to move forward. Because of this, once the student grasps a concept in one problem I have them repeat the process until they can do so easily..."

I look forward to helping students in the greater Washington area.."
Maurice "... Knowing that all students have a right to high-quality education, I challenge my students during our tutoring sessions to do more than absorb material for an examination or a paper. I keep their eyes on the big picture of their work as they practice self-discipline, perseverance, and commitment. In this way, my students learn that they are strong, that they have worth and that they can endure..."
