Nicole "...At Penn State, I was involved with research in Clinical Psychology as an undergraduate research assistant for Dr. Martha Wadsworth in the Coping and Regulation of Environmental Stress (CARES) Lab, studying environmental stress in low income families and how children adapt to it. I started tutoring students in Biology as a high school senior and since then I have taken a lot of pride in helping students achieve their academic goals! Learning is exciting, and though it doesn't come naturally to some people, everyone should be able to experience the feeling of accomplishment that comes from learning and mastering something new..."

Giulia "...I have a passion for learning languages and am fluent in both Italian and French. I love the idea that learning another language opens up an opportunity for you to speak to millions of other people in this world! I received my BA in Psychology and have experience in peer tutoring in the subject during my college years. When tutoring in Italian, French, or Psychology, I like to break down concepts into terms that are easy to understand and that incorporate examples and analogies so that they are easier to grasp..."

Samuel "...I love cooking, and in the past I worked as a cook in a restaurant. I also worked as manual laborer for a landscape company, but, unfortunately, that did not lead to a love of gardening. I am an avid reader of all genres, and I love movies and TV as well..."
Laura "I am currently a first year graduate student at Columbia's Mailman School of Public Health working towards my Masters in Public Health in environmental health sciences. For my undergraduate, I attended Fordham University and received a Bachelors degree in both biology and anthropology.

Mallory "I am a recent graduate of Yale University currently living in New York as a freelance writer and actor. During my time at Yale, I studied Classics and Humanities, served on the Executive Board of the Yale Dramatic Association, and travelled throughout Italy and Greece on a research fellowship. As a tutor, I am committed to helping my students reach their full academic potential. When it comes to test prep, I work carefully with my students to design a personalized program of study that takes advantage of their strengths and addresses their weaknesses, so that on test day they’ll earn their highest possible score. Outside of the SAT/ACT, my areas of strength are in reading, writing, language (Latin), and history..."
Vanesa "Education is the most important thing; we can loose everything, but nobody can take what we have learned. We can learn from books or from life and all that information will be useful someday. Education is what makes us different from everyone else and takes the veil that covered our eyes and shows us the truth..."
Emilia 'Mia' "...Writing an essay or dissecting a book really boils down to the art of storytelling -- and I think, no matter your age, we all can appreciate to the transformative power of stories. Not everyone finds their words easily, and some even feel ashamed to take time to express themselves. But I was a ballet dancer for ten years, and I think my rigor, determination, and sense of balance passes on to my students..."
