Humanities and Languages Tutor!

Hi all, my name is Ranj! I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Classics and History from Georgetown University in 2013 and am currently enrolled in an MA/PHD program at UCSB, studying the development and history of religions. I was born in Maryland and have been an east-coaster my whole life, though I have to say that I'm quickly growing attached to the west coast! Although I have only just joined WyzAnt, I have tutoring experience. I tutored students in Math, Science and English throu... [more]

Writing, Critical Thinking, Literary Analysis, Test Prep, Applications

I started teaching a few years ago when I realized I got a lot more satisfaction from informal, one-on-one relationships than from climbing the professional ladder -- and with degrees from Yale, Yale Law, and UC Berkeley, I was climbing pretty well. I had been a legal reporter, journalist, and book writer -- still am, sometimes -- but after writing a book on Habitat for Humanity, I was hooked on doing meaningful work...and that meant project-based work like teaching and tutoring. I've taught... [more]

AP English Teacher with Master's Degree, Humanities/English

For fifteen years I have taught/coached high school students, predominately seniors. While I've spent many hours in a classroom setting with many students, I love spending my personal time talking about writing to students one on one, specifically about their college essays and literature. I must say, I've seen some extraordinary writing and meaningful insights develop through these conversational mini-type workshops. I can diagnose strengths and weaknesses relatively quickly, leading studen... [more]

Tutor in Writing, Grammar, Philosophy, Literature, and Latin

I am currently a PhD student in Philosophy at the University of St. Thomas. For the past three years I worked as a tutor and tutor coordinator at UST. In that time, I have helped students of various levels earn higher marks in philosophy, writing, and English literature. I typically approach the art of tutoring Socratically; that is, by asking questions fashioned to elicit original thoughts from the student. However, in my experience, I sometimes find it necessary to explain principles and/o... [more]

English/Psych Tutor for All Ages

I am a California native who loves living in New York. I lived over seas in the UK for four years, and obtained both my BA and my MA over there. I love reading and English, and also have a passion for Psych. My favorite thing to teach and discuss is text analysis in novels and in poetry, since I did my Masters in Classical Acting. I did AP Psychology (5 score) in high school, but I also grew up in a household with two psychologists as parents and our dinner conversations more often than no... [more]

Veteran prep school teacher of English, Social Studies, Spanish

A graduate of Stanford and of Teachers College, Columbia University, I have over twenty years of experience teaching college-bound students how to read, think, and write. When I recently left my job at Midland School after two decades, former students, long since college graduates, wrote things like: "Mr. Cummings's English class was where my love of writing was born;" "You have inspired me and countless other students never to be satisfied with work that was less than our best," and "It is...
