I started tutoring on my own approximately nine years ago and I decided to join the WyzAnt community in order to reach out to more students. I have tutored over 500 hours through Wyzant to date and I hold a 4,9/5,0 star rating. Feel free to read through feedback from my previous students to get a better idea of my tutoring qualifications.
My total SAT score was 2170 - M770 CR700 W700. My composite ACT score was 34 - M35 E34 R34 S31. My GRE score was Verbal 158 (78th percentile), Quantitative 167 (94th percentile), and Analytical Writing 5,5 (98th percentile). I specialize in SAT and ACT preparation for high school students. I am also interested in tutoring college students preparing for the GRE general test. For test preparation, I assign a decent amount of homework each week and I spend the majority of my sessions going over the questions my students answer incorrectly.
I would like all potential students to understand that the SAT and ACT are not exactly the same, and therefore require different types of preparation. If you have any questions about this, feel free to send me a message. I also put together my own review packets for the SAT and ACT, covering all the main concepts for the math sections and the grammatical concepts for the SAT writing section/ACT English section.
I am also focusing on helping high school and college students write and edit their college admission essays and scholarship essays (for undergraduate or graduate school). I offer face-to-face sessions with students to assist in all phases of the writing process - coming up with a catchy/meaningful idea, planning out the content and structure, and editing the drafts. The rate for these sessions will be my standard rate of $60 per hour.
However, I am also willing to offer assistance via email for students who wish to have their essays edited without meeting face-to-face. The rate for this type of session will vary depending on factors such as the length of the essay, how many rounds of editing are needed, and the overall amount of time that I spend editing the essay. I am willing to discuss a rate that is reasonable for both me and the student/parent.
As far as my cancellation policy goes, I require notice at least 24 hours in advance for a lesson cancellation. If I do not receive adequate notice, I will charge a $25 cancellation fee. This is primarily due to the fact that if I schedule someone for a particular day and time, I am filling that time slot and not allowing other students the chance to take that slot. Therefore, I am losing business by allowing students to cancel at the last minute. However, I offer all of my students 1 last minute cancellation free of charge; subsequent late cancellations will be subject to the $25 fee. The only major exception to this policy is a cancellation due to severe weather conditions, in which case I will not charge a cancellation fee if the lesson is cancelled at the last minute.
While all of my "professional" and "academic" qualities are certainly important, I think it's also necessary for you to understand more about me as a person. I consider myself a "nerd" and I am no longer self-conscious about it - it's who I am. I love school, but aside from that I enjoy reading and writing. To me, the smell of a bookstore is like that of a decadent chocolate cake to many others. Although throughout the school year I typically only engage in academic writing, in my down-time I write poetry and I finished writing my first young adult novel during NaNoWriMo 2016. I'm an athlete. When I was younger I did karate for about 6,5 years and got my black belt. Now, running is one of my passions. I ran my first half-marathon this past March with my Mom in RI. I don't consider myself fast, but the mental reprieve that I experience during a long run is something I could never give up. Finally, during the winter I take pleasure in crocheting. I make hats, blankets, stuffed animals, and anything else I can come up with. Yes, my interests are eclectic. Yes, I'm eccentric. I think that these parts of me make me a better tutor because I'm well-rounded and I'm always trying to come up with new ways to help my students. Also, I think it's important for my potential students and their parents to know more about me than simply my academic abilities.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I hope to hear from you soon!
I graduated from West Chester University in 2019 with a degree in Mathematics. After graduation, I landed a job at a math tutoring center, where I tutor children in grades K-12. These tutoring services include, homework help, one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring, etc. When I'm not tutoring, I'm usually busy with graduate school at Temple University, where I am seeking a degree in Secondary Mathematics Education.
If you or your child needs help with math homework or needs additional lessons, feel free to reach out to me. I'm usually available throughout the week, weekends, Holidays, etc.
The best way to reach me is via email:
Please allow up to 24 hours for me to respond to your email/ request. In the email please include you (or the child's name), grade, and what subject of math they are requesting help for, i.e Algebra, multiplying fractions, etc. I plan to run these services online for the time being due to the current situation of COVID-19. That being said, please specify in the email if you (or the student) would like to communicate over email, zoom, or google hangout, etc.
I'll tell you what, the first TWO lessons/sessions will be free! Additional rates may apply.
If you have any additional questions/concerns please don't hesitate to reach out to me!
Thank you and stay safe!
I am an award winning Professor of Humanities, Social Science, and Liberal Arts for 30 years at university and colleges including U. C. Berkeley. I have mentored more then 50,000 students into vocations and successful careers. I am an excellent writer and I have been published in a number of books and periodicals. I am also a distinguished public speaker and have presented at numerous conventions and conferences. I can tutor Social Studies, Humanities, Social Science, Ethnic Studies, African American Studies, Sociology, Religion,and Liberal Arts courses.
I graduated from Princeton Unversity, with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical and Biological Engineering in Spring 2018. I am currently applying to medical schools, but have always had a passion for teaching - whereas I began tutoring other students - both younger and the same age as I - as a freshman in high school. I continued during my summer breaks from college, even though I had various internships and research jobs. I am working full-time (40 hours a week) as a clinical research assistant at CHOP, but would love to continue to teach on the side! I love working with everyone from children to young adults. I am willing to work out location, hours, and what services I am willing to provide, depending on the student -- this includes via skype for interested students that are not in the Philadelphia area. Please contact me for interest and pricing and I am sure we can work something out!
I am NJ Certified K-6. Working primarily as an elementary school substitute teacher. Have experience working with and tutoring students with special needs. Have experience babysitting, house sitting, caring for animals. Willing to help organize. Looking for summer nanny positions.
I have tutored various elementary school students at different levels. Due to being experienced with these students, I have learned to cater to every level needed, and try my best to make their time with me effective and an overall great learning experience.
Junior in highschool. Mainly a math and science student.
I have a great amount of experience tutoring students of high school and college age as I have tutored my peers since Freshman year of highschool, and now in college. I am able to explain the material clearly and concisely while still being able to adapt to the learning needs of different styles of learners. I have taken Calculus at an AP highschool level as well as a college level and have succeeded in both courses. Teaching others one on one is something I am very passionate about and make it a point to strive for excellence. Every student who I have worked with has gotten back to me to express how pleased they are with their new and improved test scores and their overall heightened confidence with the subject. There is no doubt in my mind that the student I am working with will have an "ah-ha!" moment every time.

Hallo, und herzlich Wilkommen!
My name is Sarah K. and I am a 25 year old native German speaker. I was born and raised in Austria and moved to the United States at the age of 20. I was an Au Pair in New Jersey and one of my daily tasks were helping my host child with her homework and introducing her to the German language. At the end of my one year long stay with the family the 6 year old girl was able to say full sentences and hold short conversations in German.
Being a language learner myself, I love the feeling of learning new words, phrases or structures in a foreing language and suddenly seeing a whole new world unfold (I am currently teaching myselg Spanish). My goal is it to help you have that very same feeling and experience every time you are learing something new with me.
I believe that there are 2 very important things to keep in mind when you are learning a new language:
1) It is important to have a goal. Whether it is to be able to have a basic conversation withing 6 months, or passing a test by the end of the year. We will comeup with a personal goal for you or your child and focus on it and constatly work towards it, lesson by lesson and step by step.
2) Have fun. It's one of the most efficient ways when it comes to learning a new language. I know that German has a reputation of being a very dificult language but it can still be fun to learn it. Playing around with different vocabularies and grammar is a great way to remember the words and strutures.
I look forward to hearing from you and help you or your child with all things German.
Bis bald, see you soon!
Hello! My name is Kseana but you may call me Kasey cause its easier LoL. and I am a very great person to work with. I am only 15 years old but I love math, and english. I can only teach grades lower than me because I find it easier as off now. I would try and make learning fun for your child so they don't think learning is boring. I would always try and teach my sisters all the time. The first session is free so we can get to know eachother then. I can even help with homework, thats not a problem with me at all. I would always try and bring a snack, so you can tell me what your child is allergic to. But I wouldn't bring peanuts because I'm allergic to peanuts and stuff like that. I put psychotherapy because I honestly LOVE to listen and help so maybe me and your teen or child can bond. Maybe we can relate. I can't add photos of myself until I get my phone fixed so I'm using a laptop at the moment. We can meet at the library or any other place it's up to you. Maybe even sometimes my home. I don't really have as much experience but I love to learn so I might see if this is for me. I am very respondsible, fun-loving, patient, trustworthy and I am always happy! We can do a backgroud check whenever you want I am not really sure how to put it up here. I will update my account once I get my phone fixed but for now you can message me hear or on my gmail ***@*** But I can't wait to have fun in learning with your child!
Hello, I'm Priscilla. I'm a high school student who wishes to help students who may be struggling with the material they are learning. While I currently do not have any amount of hours formally tutoring, I have often spent time helping friends younger than me who had difficulty in their classes.
As a visual and kinesthetic learner, I try to implement methods that were helpful to me when I was learning the material. This can include drawing pictures, using colors to differentiate material, tricks to remember specific material, and going over specific questions with the student to ensure they understand how to approach the questions. As I come to know the student, I adjust how the material is taught so they can understand it best.
Throughout elementary and middle school, I consistently earned high quiz and test scores in my math classes. This, by extension, allowed me to achieve good grades. While I cannot provide the actual scores, they are in the high eighties and nineties. In Algebra 2, I was placed into the accelerated class (my school offers three levels, CP - the lowest - Accelerated - the middle level - and honors - the highest level) and ended with an eighty six in the class.
I have been playing flute for eight years in my school's concert band. In addition to this, I also joined my school marching band when I got into high school and took one year of music theory, as it was offered as a course in my school.
I wish to see the students succeed in their classes and will welcome any suggestions or resources provided. I am easily reachable and will respond quickly. If you have any questions or wish to schedule a lesson, feel free to contact me.

Growing up in the public school system, I realized its greatest fault is an apathy towards learning. Instructors merely teach towards a test, students are judged only by their ability to score high on exams. While it is a tutor's main goal to bring those scores up, I hope to create a learning environment in which students genuinely enjoy the material and become actively curious about the subjects they are exposed to. Whether it's biology, chemistry, math, or writing, I aim to not only teach my students, but to engage them and lead them to an ongoing interst in their fields of study.
