Your Friendly Neighborhood Tutor for Math and Writing

Classic literature presents opportunities for deep learning--and enjoyment. I enjoy working with students to help them engage with stories and books. I have a master's degree in Comparative Literature and a bachelor's degree in English Literature, and I have experience giving lessons in both these subjects. I've tutored on and off throughout my life, beginning in college, and I always seem to come back to it. I've tutored calculus, writing, elementary reading, middle school math, and French. When I was a 6th-grade teacher, I got a lot out of working with students one on one because I was ab [more]

College and High School Physics and Math

Tutoring is an act of observation. It succeeds where normal instruction fails because it is geared toward a student's particular strengths. My best experiences as a tutor have been with the students who needed me most, learning how they needed to learn. I have been a tutor in one setting or another since childhood. As an undergraduate I was a teacher's assistant in English, German and Astronomy, a grader in Calculus and a tutor in Physics for scientists and engineers. I have continued to... [more]

Professional Statistics Tutor, Harvey Mudd Grad

I am here to help you pick apart works of art that happen to be novels. Here's how literature tutoring works: You message me a week in advance of our lesson with the book you need to digest, I read it and digest it myself, we meet, and you learn! We'll be using all the greatest resources, too (like LitCharts!), to help you get a grip on these works. Kathryn is a professional private tutor who spends her life helping students understand tough concepts in math and science. She is an aficionado of these subjects herself, having spent a rigorous four years at Harvey Mudd College, where she receive [more]

English Tutoring: Essays, Test Prep, and More

Experienced Writing Coach?College Applications, English, Journalist

I excel at working with writers of all ages. As a father of two college students, I have a particular interest in helping young minds find their voices with their personal statements and essays. I listen patiently, help writers brainstorm, and validate their ideas. It?s amazing what writers can do with a dose of self-confidence. Once they get their ideas down on paper, then we focus on the nuts and bolts of the writing craft, whether it?s sentence structure, spelling, or grammar. I am an acc... [more]
