I am very happy with our experience so far with Varsity Tutors. They matched my daughter with reading specialist Mary and she is wonderful! My 10 year old daughter feels happy after her sessions and believes her tutor has already helped her.

Certified Tutor

Because of my passions for helping others and sharing my knowledge, I've gravitated toward tutoring since my early high school years. I'm now in my last year of college-- I study environmental science and art history at Barnard College of Columbia University in New York City-- and I'm happy that I've been able to continue to tutor a wide range of ages in a wide variety of subjects throughout college. My passion for languages shapes my preferred tutoring realm; I especially enjoy teaching others the languages I am familiar with and fluent in, which include English, German, Italian, and Spanish. I also enjoy assisting in science-related fields, mostly for school-aged children and teens. Lastly, in my fifteen years of violin-playing, I have been part of a number of ensembles, including the Columbia University Orchestra, and have taught violin to elementary and middle school students.
