Hi there! I am a Dartmouth College senior majoring in Computer Science and Digital Arts with several years of tutoring/mentoring experience. I have achieved scores in the 99th percentile for both the ACT and SAT prior to college. While in high school (St. Paul Academy graduate), I spent my time volunteering at the homeless shelter, helping out with their daycare and tutoring children. Nowadays, I spend most of my tutor hours helping students with the ACT, editing college essays, or imparting some admission-worthy wisdom.
A number of my former mentees/tutees have been accepted into preeminent undergraduate and graduate universities, including Stanford, Berkeley, Dartmouth, and more. And while I have worked with exceptionally naturally gifted students, I want to emphasize on creating a curriculum and plan that will suit your own individualized goals, whatever they may be. I take a personalized approach to tutoring, knowing that everyone learns differently and tailoring counseling to the personal abilities and objectives of my students. I believe 'smart' is just another word for 'hard-working' and that goals can be achieved with a good plan of action.
I am happy to open up my home in Roseville, MN for tutoring sessions because it provides a nice, quiet place to study. Before every meeting, I will set an agenda for the session based on the needs of the student. Typically, I like to spend the first session just getting to know the student. Afterwards, I will leave the student with a plan of action and homework tailored to the student's schedule.
Rigorous sessions cover English, Math, Reading, Science and Writing and teach specific test-taking strategies unique to the ACT.
Counseling sessions help you choose the right academic path for you - college choices, extracurriculars, academic advice, and other decisions important to your college admissions.
