Harvey Mudd Grad Coaches Mindful Learning

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 and Effective Altruist who spends her life helping students understand tough concepts in math, science, English, and critical reading while fostering the mindful communication skills that her students need in [more]

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]

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]
