Sciences, Test Prep, English & Math, Literature, and Biology

I have personally experienced great success in academic literature evaluations like the English Literature AP exam where I scored a 5. Additionally, having taken numerous literature classes in high school and college with diverse themes, I understand how to relate and synthesize information for students to best grasp and learn literary analysis and similar concepts. My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obs [more]

Algebra, Geometry, SAT and Calculus Tutor - 8 Years Experience

I've worked as a tutor for over 8 years, both at the high school and collegiate level.

My areas of expertise are in Algebra and SAT Math, as I personally wrote the Algebra I, II and SAT curricula for the tutoring company I work at. Every single one of my Algebra students have improved by at least one full letter grade, and my SAT students have all surpassed either their previou... [more]

Strive for success in K-12 Reading/Writing/SAT/ACT/TOEFL/IELTS Prep

My goal is to turn students' weaknesses into strengths and to enable them make the changes they need to get the grades they want in exam preparation and in their school coursework. I believe in guiding rather than instructing; by leading students on a path of discovery to learn, retain and apply, in order to avoid making the same mistakes twice. Students are responsible for their own learning which is to say that firstly, hard graft is required to acquire a vocabulary base substantive to pass... [more]

Harvey Mudd Grad, Mindfulness-Based ACT Coach

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. Sliding scale rate available Kathryn has discovered that compassion and academic performance are strongly positively correlated. It is on this foundation that she's built her success and the successes of her students. Kathryn is a professional pr [more]

Challenging Tutor Specializing in Lit, Analytical Writing and TestPrep

The world of fiction and poetry can be difficult for middle-high school students, who are called upon to make insightful use of their heightened imagination as well as articulate clearly and abundantly their analytical interpretations. I have over 8 years of experience writing literary analysis and have a complete curriculum built around analyzing literature in three ways- formally, thematically, and culturally/historically- and being very, very systematic in teaching students this method of analysis. I teach literary analysis in hyper-structured ways every day as a middle school teacher and r [more]

Castilleja & Stanford alum; admissions, ISEE/PSAT/SAT, math

I earned a B.A. in American Studies with a concentration in law, government, and political policy in American society in June 2011 from Stanford. I am a grateful 7 year alumna of Castilleja School. I adore working with children and adolescents, have recruited for start-ups as a freelancer, and worked at a mobile start-up funded by Eric Schmidt. One of the chief influences for my admissions mentality was my time at Stanford Law School Office of Career Services, where I compiled judicial clerks... [more]
