Victoria "...I taught 1st 2nd and 3rd grade for three years and while teaching, earned a Master's Degree in Education. In addition to being a classroom certified teacher, I have also tutored older students in SAT test preparation, as well as classroom content such as calculus and physics.

Cyrus "...I had a lot of fun there, and picked up a conversational level of Mandarin Chinese, but after two years (and four battles with food poisoning) I decided it was time to come back to America. I took the LSAT in September of 2014, and have been tutoring it ever since. I have a wide array of interests, and can tutor a number of different humanities subjects. However, my favorite subject to tutor is LSAT preparation..."
Bria "...As a self-proclaimed language lover, word wizard, and punctuation princess, I have a passion for all things English or Language Arts. I find joy in piecing together, dissecting and recreating sentences, paragraphs, and even stanzas to find or create meaning and purpose for the reader and the writer! As an undergraduate student, I spent much of my free time working in the university writing center to help my peers improve and master their own writing skills. The rest of my free time was spent either laughing with friends, trying a new recipe or looking deals on Groupon! I also love to write my own poetry in my spare time, and I enjoy reciting it before audiences at local open mics nights! My favorite poets are Pablo Neruda, Russell Edson, and Toni Morrison because they all have their own unique voices and styles that encourage my eyes and my mind to indulge further and further into their works, page after page..."
Claire "...I taught in an International Baccalaureate boarding school in northern Thailand for one year after college, and then moved to Shanghai where I lived for three years. I tutored elementary school students in creative writing and English grammar and high school students in US AP History and writing. The work I enjoyed most, however, was mentoring students through their college and university application processes..."

Will "...If they don't comprehend and retain that knowledge, I haven't succeeded in my job, just like a tutor. I've been informally tutoring people for years, whether it's helping children study for classes while babysitting in high school and college or helping classmates learn and prepare for school all the way back to my elementary school days. In one form or another, I've been helping people learn almost as long as I remember. A great tutor needs to be intelligent, with a comprehensive, intuitive understanding of the subject matter..."
Jeff "As a pre-medical student at Princeton University, I've had significant experience with a vast array of subjects in both learning and teaching roles. I started tutoring in high school and have been hooked ever since! I enjoy helping others succeed in any way I can. After spending a few years helping students in my hometown prepare for the SAT, I've more recently focused on the hard sciences..."

Daniel "...Since graduation, I have been living in New York and working as a private tutor for families and for individual students. Although there are a variety of subjects that I enjoy tutoring, my favorites include English and History. I also have experience in tutoring the SAT..."
Sam "...I have found that there is no correct way to tutor students, for every student has vastly different needs; therefore, I try to always teach in a way that specifically caters to each individual's specific needs. I strongly believe that a good education is key to a happy and successful life. Oftentimes, students just need the right person with the right teaching style for that education to be a fun, easy process..."
