Test Prep Tutor for the ACT, SAT, & GRE - BS, MA, MBA tutor

I provided college and career counseling at the University of IL. We would discuss with students issues such as entrance exams, placement tests, enrollment procedures, CLEP/AP exams, ratings of schools, essay writing, and mock interviewing. I mostly work with students now on the ACT, SAT, & GRE. For the ACT, we will go over content that you must know for English & Math. For ex, there are specific reasons when to use a comma. Most likely, you were never taught that. In order to improve your score on the English section, you must learn and study that content. We will work on specific st [more]

Academic Writing, College Essays,Test Prep, Grammar, B.A., M.Ed

I help students with all of their essay prompts by guiding them through the steps of the writing task: understand the demands of each prompt, generate ideas at the prewriting stage, elaborate and revise the rough draft, and proofread the final copy. Throughout the process, my students strengthen their ideas, spot weak rhetorical and organization choices and make appropriate choices, and correct grammar and other surface-level concerns. After working with me, students have developed a polished essay in their own voice. The result is more confident students and more readable, immersive, though [more]

Let an Ivy League Ph.D. help you craft the perfect college essay

I have spent the last nine years helping students achieve admissions to top colleges. My specialty is helping students find their voice and convey their story to the admissions officers. As a former interviewer for Dartmouth College, I have seen the admissions process from the inside. I have also been through the process myself, and I understand the stress and anxiety caused by college admissions. I graduated from Dartmouth College with high honors and earned a Ph.D. from Cornell Medical School. I understand how opaque the system seems and how hard it is to know what the schools are looking [more]

180 LSAT Scorer! (Plus physics, calculus, writing, and more)

With almost 7 years in the admissions test-prep industry, I've been right on the front lines of the admissions game. From personal statements to recommendations about when to submit, I am very experienced with helping students navigate the ins and outs of the application process. Also, I've been admitted to 3 elite universities (one of them being an Ivy League school at the undergraduate level), and I am personally familiar with what it takes to submit a competitive application package. My greatest specialty is with the law school entrance exam, known (and dreaded) by soon-to-be law students a [more]

Experienced Math, Music, and English Tutor

For the past six years, I have been the college counselor for the online high school I work for. I have helped numerous students with finding the right school for them and also prepare for required tests and applications. Teaching is my passion! I have recently acquired a Master's in Educational Psychology from University of Connecticut, with an emphasis on Gifted, Creativity, and Talent Development. I see all students as different people, all requiring a different approach to a subject. I take the time to develop a plan to help students learn the way that works best for them. I also believe t [more]

Veteran college instructor/writing coach/ACT/SAT tutor

As a high school English teacher who has helped many juniors and seniors craft their college application letters, I am qualified to help students through all the stages of the writing process, from brainstorming, outlining, crafting and revising. I have a solid grasp of what college admission officials are looking for in student admission essays (originality, honesty and mature insight) and--perhaps, even more importantly--what turns them off (cliches and trite platitudes). I can help students write essays that pop and demand attention. [more]

Business and Technology Trainer

I have spent the last 12 years in higher education, working as a professor and as an academic dean. I worked closely with admissions and the Registrar, helping support the admissions and registration process. I worked closely with students who were considering college at my university to look at their interests and skills to see if they would be a good fit for the university, and whether they would be a good fit for their program. I advised both new and continuing students in these capacities. [more]
