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]

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

Do you have a favorite author? If not, keep reading till you find one! My favorite books are treasured good friends! No one is too old or too young to enjoy stories, and our civilization's best stories are sitting on the library shelf waiting for you to engage with them. One author whom I truly love is Virginia Woolf--because reading her novels and essays and other writings has given me a greater appreciation of life, art, poetry, and literature. I hope that a little of my enthusiasm for reading good literature has rubbed off on some of the many students I have assisted with reading and writin [more]

Here to Help You in Your March to Success!

As a child, I was an avid reader of fiction from Albert Teyson Terhune's dog stories to the adventures of the Bobbsey Twins, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Nowadays, I am more drawn to biographies and historical novels but my love of mystery, fantasy, and adventure still needs attention (which has led me to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and the series of books by George Martin that includes the Game of Thrones). I look forward to sharing my love of literary forms --both prose and poems -- and gaining insight into the human condition by examining some of the novels, dramas, and short [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]
