Patient, Experienced Multi-Subject Tutor (Harvard Grad & J.D.)

I have counseled hundreds of students -- including high school, college, and graduate school -- regarding the application procedure to numerous competitive colleges and graduate (e.g., PhD, J.D., and M.A.) programs. I am especially adept at extracting important experiences and adapting them to the contours of a professional, yet truly personal "personal statement." I myself have developed personal statements and application materials sufficient to receive acceptance and full-scholarships to PhD programs at, among other schools, Yale, University of Chicago, Duke, and Boston College. I have addi [more]

Harvey Mudd/Cornell grad; multi-subject, empathetic tutor

I have worked with five separate high school students to help them prepare for the college applications process. Together, we generate a schedule and study plan that will improve performance on the required standardized tests. I also provide guidelines as to the content, tone, and structure of the personal statement. Finally, I also provide guidance about the heavier importance most students should place on financial aid, and guide them through this process. I do not discourage scholarship applications, but I manage expectations, and provide guidance about essay content tailored to the specifi [more]

Patient, effective tutor for your most difficult subject

I have worked with many students who were applying to college and graduate schools, helping them to complete their applications. In particular, I have helped them polish their essays and personal statements and (for graduates) their thesis applications and dissertation statements. I cherish every student, but I don?t necessarily want to build a long-term relationship with them. At the cost of tutoring, that is not a good deal for everyone. I will quickly fill in the gaps, get you caught up, and teach you how to deal with new concepts on your own. Later, if your subject presents a new challe [more]

Instruction and tutoring in Music, Art, Guitar, Voice, etc.

Having received a B.S. in Art Education from the University of Michigan I am confident and capable of helping college students with a variety of issues including study habits, approach to tests, organization and comprehension of material and writing papers. As a 20+ year private instructor I also possess the knowledge, temperament and social skills to work comfortably one-on-one with individual students.

Math, Science, and English Tutor, College Counselor.

I received a full tuition scholarship to USC as an undergraduate, and was recruited a year early through an academic merit recruitment program. At USC, I was a National Merit Scholar and was enrolled in their Honors Core Curriculum, known as Thematic Option. Had I not been admitted to USC a year early, I would have been heavily recruited by Ivy League universities upon my graduation from high school. I am familiar with the curricula, and the extra-curricular activities, to which the nation's top universities give the most respect and attention. I have seven years' experience employed with [more]

Specialized Tutor in Liberal Arts, Writing & Study Skills

I taught at California State University, Dominguez Hills, as a Supplementary Instructor in the English Department. Working for EOP and ETE through a Title V grant, I participated fully in classroom facilitation, focusing on preparation and assignment help. Most of my work hours were spent in one-on-one and group tutoring sessions, to improve brainstorming, note-taking, layout, grammar, punctuation, and editing skills. I also conducted weekly workshops where specific skills were practiced through hands-on worksheets and board-work, facilitating learning in an active manner. Due to my past exper [more]

Results-Driven Tutor available for Multiple Subjects

In my former postion as a Facilitator for Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE), I delivered powerful and effective seminars and presentations to Spanish-speaking parents in various low-income/high-need communities on how to help send their children to college. This position necessitated keen insight on curriculum development, as well as effective public speaking and active community involvement. Furthermore, my work for PIQE allowed me to work as an academic 'coach' for large groups of parents. I interfaced with faculty, staff, parents, and community leaders, providing peer support a [more]
