Award-Winning Tutors in Philadelphia, PA
Katherine "... I am an Executive Board Member of one of the largest community service groups on campus, the West Philadelphia Tutoring Project, so I have had plenty of experience tutoring elementary and middle school students in reading and math in the Philadelphia area. Prior to my experience tutoring in Philadelphia, I ran an online writing program teaching essential writing skills to elementary school students and served as an Algebra I instructor at a local community center. I enjoy tutoring math up to Algebra 2, SAT Math, and editing essays (including college essays) because helping students build math foundations that will help them for the rest of their life is rewarding and I greatly enjoy editing essays! I have a very flexible tutoring style - I am approachable and willing to answer any questions related to the material..."
Emily "... I taught high school chemistry and general science, running labs, lessons, and anything else that was required. While doing that, I started teaching LSAT classes after work. Now, I'm a full time tutor, devoted to helping students score higher on tests and do better in classes. Because I've been a science teacher, I know how they think, why they do certain labs, and what they're likely to ask in tests..."

I am a current 3rd year medical student and I intend to be on the development side of primary care..."
SueEllen "...I have one year of formal education experience teaching middle school math and science in Guatemala City, and several years of experience with informal education, including tutoring. I created nearly all of the teaching materials for each position I have had - from training cardiologists about Electronic Medical Records to teaching 7th graders Life Science. I am a great tutor because I am observant, creative, and communicative. I believe that in order to identify individual needs and learning styles, I must pay attention to the verbal and nonverbal communication of my students..."
Nicholaus "... If you decide to set up sessions with me, it will be a discussion and an interactive learning process (you get lectured enough in class). When solving problems, I like to guide students to the answer without giving it to them; I have always found this to be the best way to learn. I can also provide full solutions when it comes time to study for that big test. My background…I am a graduating senior completing both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the accelerated Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics program at Drexel University..."

I have had experience tutoring a variety of different students of ages ranging from kindergarten to high school. My students have come from diverse backgrounds and have taught me how to relate to a variety of different students..."
Devon "...I take them seriously, keep up with recent research, and am constantly looking for ways to help students interpret material they may be struggling with. I am currently seeking Teacher Certification so I can pursue my career goal of making Latin and Grammar accessible and relevant to modern students. That being the case, my primary focus is Latin tutoring, though my extensive experience with academic writing/reading and the research I have conducted in French enable me to offer help in those areas as well..."
