Kyle "...My specialties include SAT prep, French, college applications, logic, and guidance at every stage of the essay-writing process (from initial brainstorming through outlining, writing, substantive editing, and final proofreading). I believe in teaching/learning as a dynamic game of collaboration rooted in mutual respect and open-mindedness, in which teacher and learner both pitch in, engaging in back-and-forth dialogue to zero in on key ideas and confront stumbling blocks. As such, I place a high value on humor, conversation, politeness, creative engagement, and frequent interactive practice..."
Kori "... Throughout high school I tutored and taught middle school students through a program that aimed to prepare these potential first generation college students to succeed in their high schools’ college prep coursework. I continued teaching during college and graduate school where I was a teaching assistant for several undergraduate Physics courses and a lab instructor for an introductory Earth Science course. Nowadays, when I’m not tutoring, you can find me judging at local county science fairs or volunteering at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History..."

Rebecca "...I work closely with students to ensure that they not only learn what the right answer is, but why it is right and how to apply that information to other questions. I scored a 36 on the ACT and love to help students unlock the challenges of that exam, as well as the SAT and PSAT. I am fluent in Spanish and have lived and studied in Costa Rica, Chile, and Argentina..."
Chinedu "...I am a proponent of giving students a deeper understanding by relating unfamiliar topics with mastered concepts. I ensure that my students understand that math and science are increasingly important subjects to understand in this age of computers and technology based commerce. I am a huge sports fan (mainly football) and enjoy playing rugby..."
