I am a rising sophomore at Amherst College, one of the nation's top liberal arts colleges. I am pursuing a double major in mathematics and philosophy - the combination of STEM and the humanities was a key reason why I chose Amherst and the liberal arts experience for my education. Ever since my freshman year of high school, I have been actively involved in tutoring. I have tutored elementary school students in Harlem in reading comprehension and vocabulary building; middle school students in the South Bronx in Latin and Roman mythology; high school students at my previous school in geometry, English, French, and Latin; and this year, I am tutoring a graduate student who recently immigrated to the United States in ESL and conversational English. As for my preferred subjects, I have an abundance of knowledge of and experience with college test preparation (both SAT and ACT, but especially the SAT). Because I went through the standardized testing process myself not too long ago, the top strategies and preparation methods for successful performances on these key exams are fresh on my mind. I have experience tutoring clients in the SAT and have worked with them to achieve significant improvement. All in all, I am passionate about getting to know my clients and working with them to make learning engaging using strategies that are the most effective for them individually. I am a strong believer in utilizing as many teaching methods as possible (visual, auditory, hands-on, project-based learning, etc.) to pinpoint the method that works the best for my students. I am patient, consistent, and hard-working, and I look forward to working with you toward success.
