Award-Winning Tutors in Atlanta, GA
Edison "I want to see people around me succeed. Oftentimes, the best way I can help people do that is to share skills that I demonstrate mastery in, one of which is standardized and academic test taking. Test-taking skills, and familiarity with the format and patterns of testing, are eminently teachable. This makes test prep one of the most worthwhile areas to expend effort, whether for the purpose of improving your application profile or for AP testing..."

Laura "...I am confident that I can help any student become a better writer. Throughout high school, I worked with a boy through his third and fourth grade years to improve his writing skills for the FCAT, the state standardized exam in Florida, which he successfully passed at the conclusion of my tutelage. Standardized testing has always come naturally to me and I scored very well on my SAT test. I would be happy to pass along any tips and tricks I can to help students score higher. My specialty is in process of elimination and strategic guessing. Additionally, I have always been good with Mathematics and Spanish. I tutored my peers in Math throughout all of middle and high school..."
Puja "Hi! My name is Puja. I am a Georgia Tech alum in Biomedical Engineering. I enjoy helping others reach their academic goals. I've been a teaching assistant at Georgia Tech, a FASET Leader, and a Connect with Tech host. I've also been a mentor through Biomedical Engineering Society so if you ever want to talk about future academic goals along with getting some tutoring help, just let me know! I'm very approachable and have worked with students of all ages..."

Rashida "...Since graduation, I have worked as a tutor and as an educational program specialist for students majoring in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)disciplines. I tutor general and Organic Chemistry as well as undergraduate-level Mathematics courses. I really enjoy teaching Chemistry and I feel that my students really appreciate the interactive approach I use when teaching. From my experience as a student and tutor, I know that Science can be hard to grasp but when you have someone to explain the information in familiar terms, understanding is then attainable. By taking the time to understand a student's learning style and never failing to offer words of encouragement, every student can succeed in their courses..."
Adel "...I have been tutoring since my freshmen year in college a variety of subjects including Mathematics, English and Science. With my youngest brother in high school and my youngest sister in elementary school, I have constant exposure to different levels and types of academic subjects. Teaching has always been my passion and I have consistently found a good way of connecting with students. I have worked with students who are struggling to understand very difficult course material in Biochemistry, Calculus 3 and electromagnetism in Physics. I have also worked with younger students in spelling, addition, subtraction and forming basic sentences..."
Michael "... I also have a M.Ed from the University of Georgia in Educational Administration and Policy. I grew up in Indiana, and moved to Georgia about six years ago. I enjoy running, playing guitar, and watching sports. I have taught fifth and sixth grades, and have helped tutor students from third to fifth grade..."
Laurel "I have a B.S. in Physics from MIT, and a M.Sci. in Astrophysics from UC Santa Cruz, where I conducted research on black holes and exoplanets. I've been doing (and teaching) high level math and physics full time during my stint in grad school, and look forward to passing on my expertise to you. I have extensive teaching experience, with subjects ranging from basic math, to SAT and GRE test prep, to college- and graduate-level physics. I've worked with high school students, 10 year olds, and folks old enough to be my parents, all with great success. If you find math and physics difficult, and are looking for a tutor who can demystify them for you: I would love to help you out! If you love math and physics, and have exhausted other teachers' knowledge but would still like to learn more: I would also love to help you out! In addition to wielding math and science skills for fun and profit, I design and sew clothes whilst half-listening to podcasts about history and technology."

I graduated with honors from Asheville High School; attended both Brevard College and High Point University where I received my Associate of Arts and Bachelor of Arts degrees; and I received my Masters of Education Degree in 2010 from East Tennessee State University. Also, I served in the United States Army as a decorated non-commissioned officer.

Arin "... I am invested in the intricacies of pedagogy. My experience of teaching at multiple universities such as GMU, Miami-Dade, New College of Florida, American and NYU affords me the opportunity to hone my skills as an instructor-across multiple departments. I bring a deeply entrenched belief in the development of student “idea.” I see “idea” a finessed & nuanced, malleable entity that students themselves form and put to work in their thinking/ writing. This pushes them beyond the routinized 'thesis statement' and pushes them to foray into the uncharted waters of their own minds. I believe in the ability of students to learn to think critically and to actively engage in texts..."
