Effective and Enjoyable Tutor

I earned a Masters in Science in Educational Psychology from Cal State Hayward. I was licensed as a Marriage Family Child Therapist. I majored in English and minored in Communications for my B.A. degree. My love of teaching comes from a lifelong of learning both in and out of the classroom. I delight in helping students to realize their potential and improve their performance on tests. I help students release negative mindsets, attitudes and beliefs that may be blocking their ability to study, and replace these with training that develops confidence and joy in learning new skills.

Retired Aerospace Engineer. Professional Tutor for Math and English.

As a Kumon Instructor for 11 years, I taught every aspect of Math and English from basic skills to college level work. During that time, I have taught hundreds of teens and young adults to understand that mastering these skills is vital, not only to getting into the college of their choice, but to being successful at the college level and beyond. Along the way, I have also taught these students to write excellent college applications and essays, and many of them have been accepted to top tier schools. [more]

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

In addition to writing the letter that led to myself winning an academic scholarship two decades ago, I have coached more than a few students through the process of writing successful college application essays. Sometimes called a "personal statement"-- this document needs to show how the writer is a unique, special, and deserving applicant who is likely to make the most of her/his educational opportunity. The "judges" who read these essays may be looking over a hundred or more candidates' pieces, so YOUR words need to distinguish you from the crowd. Every sentence has to amplify the message [more]

Effective Math Tutor (Northwestern U Engineering PhD)

Having recently gone through the college application process with my kids, I know how stressful it can be. You only have one chance to make a good impression on each college you apply to. My wife and I have spent hundreds of hours researching on the internet, attended seminars from admission officers from different colleges and visited the campuses of many of these top colleges. I am very familiar with the subtle difference between what these top colleges look for. I can consult on how to make the student stand out with the appropriate extracurricular activities and the unique personal stateme [more]

Berkeley PhD Student, Certified Teacher, Expert in Math and Test Prep

As an alum of a US News Top 10 National Liberal Arts College and a current PhD student at UC Berkeley, I know what it takes to get admitted to a competitive program. As a former teacher who served on the senior grade team in a college advisement role, I've workshopped dozens of students' college essays and helped them refine their short lists. I know how to help you bring out that unique voice that will make you stand out to an admissions officer, and I'd love to help you make a stressful process more manageable.

Exceptional All-Ages English Tutor and Copy/ Line Editing Wiz

Over the last four years I have helped students--including many first generation college students--develop successful college application essays and personal statements. I work with students to find the right balance for their applications: helping to articulate their unique strengths in a way that communicates their merit to the institution while also showing their interests, personality, and individual voice. Our lessons will involve some research, brainstorming, and writing practice. The first lesson sets up a gameplan for producing the student's first draft(s) while the lessons that follow [more]
