About Erin W.

Close
Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

As a student preparing for college, I scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT.

I have over 5 years tutoring for ACT preparation. I have a vast amount of materials that aid in lessons and regularly review the exam, in order to stay current with any changes in the test format.

I will help your son or daughter achieve their score through a variety of techniques, tailored to their needs, that I have fine-tuned during my years of experience with this exam.

About Erin
I carry an enthusiasm for knowledge and "nerdy" subjects like mathematics and science! I believe in the power of positive reinforcement and aim to foster not only knowledge, but also confidence. Lessons are individualized for the student and their goal grade/test score. I am passionate about education and the development of growing minds, and it shows in my sessions.

My assistance doesn't stop just because the lesson is over. I make myself available to students (via email) for as-needed homework and study-related questions.

I have nearly 10 years experience working as an educator.
I am honored to work with students throughout the year, for long-term results, but am also happy to assist with short-term needs such as midterm/final exam preparation.

Also available for:
College admissions consulting -- Let me help your family nav
igate this complex process. I can assist with choosing programs and schools, tailoring applications to each recipient school, and generally putting together the strongest possible application packet.

Erin was very caring, articulate, thorough and responsive. She tested my daughter's knowledge by assigning her problems to do prior to their sessions. As a result, she was able to get 100% on all of her home/class work.

I've helped students with the ACT for a number of years. There is a mindset to learning the "tricks" of this standardized test. I want students to recognize the patterns to the test questions so that they can know exactly how to answer them.

Overall, I have been very academically successful myself. I enjoy helping students understand difficult concepts. I am also very patient with my students and won't give up until we've accomplished our goals.

I've achieved such items as valedictorian of my high school class, National Honor Society, Who's Who Among American High School Students, Distinguished Graduate Student of the Year at Robert Morris University, Alpha Chi National Honor Society, Alpha Iota Mu Honor Society, National Dean's List, and a 4.0 GPA at the Bachelor's and Master's level.

I think Susan would be a better teacher for a beginner student than for an intermediate student. The voice lessons were still helpful, but she was more of a practice coach than a teacher, for an intermediate/advanced singing student. If you need to learn how to breathe and support your singing, I'd recommend her for starting out, but if you are already a trained singer and looking to improve even more, you'd be better off going to a more specialized expert singing teacher. She was a nice lady and I had fun in her lessons though.

About Vivek V.

Close
Saratoga, CA

View Full Profile

I have tutored numerous students in all sections of the ACT, especially bringing up scores in the Science and Reading sections where most seem to struggle. I understand the value of achieving a great composite score through excelling in individual sections, and use my own experience scoring a 34+ to help breakdown the test for students.

About Vivek
I am a graduate from the University of Rochester with a B.S in Neuroscience and the former president of a student run global health non-profit. 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 obstacles brought me further love for learning and those subjects. I want to transmit that feeling of accomplishment to students as they master their own subjects, and hopefully foster a passion for further learning and success in any of their other endeavors. As a top student in both high school, and scholarship recipient in college, I know the effort and dedication required to be successful, and the impact a good teacher and support system can have on a student.

Having
served as a tutor for speech and writing in college, I enjoy and thrive in tutoring English, Literature, Writing, Communication and Debate. I have honed my writing abilities and understanding to help many students on writing college application essays, even tailored for particular schools. As a neuroscience student, having taken numerous science courses in a university setting and performed well in them, I understand many of the common difficulties students face when grappling with the concepts and problems presented to them. I have used my own experience as a teaching instructor for the Department of Biology to hone my teaching abilities and help students master formerly challenging material. Ultimately, the skills I acquired throughout this process of teaching and learning have improved my own understanding and grasp on the sciences, and I pass on these acquired traits to my students as I instruct them in the various sciences.

For many students, standardized tests are the biggest challenges to obtaining college admission, earning scholarships, or placing into selective programs. As someone who self-taught and experimented his way through taking these exams and scoring well, I take students through the whole approach to exams like the SAT by breaking down each section to manageable parts and finding the most efficient and easy ways to answer questions. Through helping students individually leverage their strengths and destroy weaknesses in facing these exams, I am confident that they will have conquered yet another obstacle on the path to their goals.

I look forward to hearing from you. All the best!

Knowledgable and EXTREMELY patient
Christopher came here to teach me pivot tables which I needed to know for work. I had no knowledge of what they were or did and when he left I had an understanding which I did not think I could achieve in such a short time. The patience he showed was wonderful as I was nervous and he put me at ease which is not an easy task! He also had to figure out what I need to do (in Excel)when I do not completely understand it myself but by the time he left, he understood and I am confident that I can succeed now and it is all because of Christopher!

About Angeline T.

North Hollywood, CA
View Full Profile

I have been tutoring test prep since for several years. With a focus on filling knowledge gaps and time management strategies, my students improve not only on the test but also in their math classes.

About Angeline
I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Pre-Medical Biology major and psychology minor. Shortly after I graduated, I tested into the American Mensa organization (an organization open to those with IQs in the top 2% of the population). Prior to becoming a full-time tutor, I worked in various industries, including healthcare, IT security and web development. I have taken the SAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT and the MCAT, so I am familiar with the major tests and their associated strategies.

I decided to become a tutor because I understand how important it is to invest in our youth's education. With my particular background, my professional interests involve the math and sciences as well as standardized tests. I predominantly work with high school children to young adult college students, especially young ladies, as we need more of th
em in the STEM fields.

I'm a down to earth, easy-going tutor. In my sessions, I make learning fun and accessible whether your goal is to understand Calculus or improve your SAT score.

I've been working as a tutor for 10+ years, specializing in math and science subjects at the high school and college level, as well as standardized test prep. I understand that every student has a different learning style, and will have different goals for our work together, so I develop a tailored plan during the initial meeting. My style of teaching is based on scaffolding my students, providing information when necessary while also encouraging them to take ownership of their part in our work together.

About Anthony
With 10+ years of tutoring experience under my belt, I've developed a teaching style that is supportive and compassionate, but also no-nonsense. I help students work to the highest level of their capabilities, providing expert knowledge and encouraging them to be active participants in their learning.

I have a BS in Biology from the University of Minnesota as well as an MD from St. George's University. Given my background, I'm very comfortable tutoring in the areas of math and science. In addition, I have received specialized training on prepping for standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, GMAT, and MCAT and can help students navigate the ins and outs of these challenging exams.

Hi! I am recent Yale grad (Class of 2019). My tutoring covers all sections of the test and is designed to help students identify and improve their areas of weakness and develop test taking strategies to maximize their score! I have helped students improve their score dramatically and feel more confident about their test taking ability.

About Jack
I am a singer & voice teacher specializing in classical voice and broadway! I recently graduated from Yale with my degree in music where I performed in numerous musical and operatic productions. Professionally, I have performed across the US and the UK as a soloist in major venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Tanglewood Music Center.

As a teacher, I look to foster a love of music and singing in all of my students. Learning to sing is not only learning proper technique and the correct notes but also learning how to be comfortable in your own skin and finding your own voice. I am most fond of teaching beginning students and helping them to find their start on their vocal journey.

My teaching is extremely flexible to meet the needs of the student but always contains the following elements: an emphasis not only on vocal
technique but also musicianship skills (such as musical literacy), a no nonsense factual approach to how your voice works, and most importantly fun!
