I am recent graduate of Columbia University in New York (a dual major in Physics and English). I have been tutoring for a little over two years, with a focus on the ACT and SAT. I have experience with Catalyst tutoring as well as Varsity, which has given me experience with more methods for approaching both tests. I know both the ACT and the SAT inside and out. I can both help students quickly improve their test scores through simple test-taking tricks, but I can also help them develop their abilities and strengthen their conceptual grasp of a more difficult field. I find I get the strongest improvement in the reading and math sections. For STEM subjects specifically, my dual major allows me to communicate math ideas better than most other tutors. I also enjoy working on essays, and I often helped my friends in college with their papers. I'm particularly passionate about math and writing, and I believe that a teacher's enthusiasm in any field is infectious for the students. In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, listening to music, both playing and watching basketball, reading literature (particularly American and British poetry), and playing chess.
