Hi there! I am a former scientist who happens to enjoy English and test preparation in addition to math and science. I have a bachelor's degree in chemistry and biology from Boston University, a PhD in biological chemistry from The Scripps Research Institute, and three years of postdoctoral experience at Harvard University in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. The subjects in which I specialize include Test Preparation; Mathematics; General Chemistry; Organic Chemistry; English Writing, Grammar, and Literature; and Introductory Biology . As a tutor, I am patient and adept at identifying areas in which students may need extra help. My style is informal and approachable, and I relate extremely well to students ranging from elementary-school-age to working adults.
About me: I have worked as a part-time Professor of Chemistry at local colleges and universities; I tutor extensively in subjects ranging from science to English to test preparation; and I worked for many years as a scientist--performing experiments and communicating results through written and oral presentations to specialists and non specialists alike. Through these experiences, I have become expert at relating to students of all ages and educational backgrounds.

I am a recently retired US State Department Foreign Service Officer and US Naval War College professor. With a degree in Biology, I served as a Fisheries Extension Agent with the Peace Corps in French-speaking Africa before earning my MS in Agriculture, which included lots of Math for irrigation calculations. Worked for nearly a decade in West Africa, where I honed my French language abilities. When I joined the US Foreign Service as an Economic Officer in 1996, I scored a 3+/4 on the Foreign Service Institute French language test. I served for over 20 years as a reporting officer, writing hundreds of diplomatic cables on the subject of microeconomic and macroeconomic issues. I also oversaw (proofreading, editing, suggesting changes) the writing of hundreds more cable reports by supervisees. Some of these went up to the level of Secretary of State. As a final tour with the State Department, I earned my MA at the US Naval War College and taught in the Strategy and Policy Department for two years, teaching History and tutoring military officers to write long essays. I have always been a good test taker (scored 1300 on the SAT as a 14/15 year old) and am currently tutoring my own 13-year-old son for the upcoming SSAT. I am prepared to tutor either online or in-person, at a location of the student's choice. I am the married father of three children, ages 8, 11, and 13.

Featured Review: Great Tutor with extreme patience and creative thinking!! "Curtis is extremely patient and did an incredible job connecting with my daughters. He is very thorough and easy to work with and goes out of his way to be available when needed. He has a well-structured approach that considers their individual needs. He explains problems clearly, quickly identifying where help was needed most, and developed constructive strategies for success. They both really enjoy him and actually look forward to their SAT review sessions! We are very happy with our choice of a tutor!"
About Curtis E:
Within the first two weeks of his sophomore year at Phillips Academy, Andover, Curtis was one of the few students to pass out of the year-long Competence (in writing) requirement. He then continued to stand out in all the English classes meant for juniors and seniors, often receiving the only A+ in the section. Curtis caught the acting bug in college and graduated with a degree in Performance Studies from Northwestern University. Ultimately, however, he felt the pull towards the greatest show on Earth: education.
Apart from teaching and tutoring English standard and honors classes at Somerville High School for seven years, Curtis also teaches SAT and ACT Prep, MCAS, theatre, and public speaking. In his time there and with other organizations, test scores and rankings have skyrocketed.
As a tutor and teacher, Curtis works to student strengths while developing areas that need improvement; he is a firm believer that every student can learn. A literature analysis and writing stickler, he works hard to improve skills and ensure college readiness. Curtis' energy and sense of humor make his sessions popular- he portrays academics in a fun light, akin to what he calls the "mental and spiritual gym" where one learns how to learn while maintaining a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
When not working in education, Curtis continues to pursue acting and is currently penning two screenplays. He loves tennis, guitar, cooking, travel, and, most of all, making his wife and kids giggle.
I've been a private tutor for the past 15 years and spent a year training as a Princeton review educator when I was a student at Princeton University (I graduated from the university in 1994). I work with students from kindergarten to adulthood and enjoy tailoring my approach to address each student's concerns and goals. I frequently look to have my students play an active role in uncovering the strategies that works best for them, thinking of them as a member of a two person team. I strive to have my students, whatever age, feel both supported and challenged during our sessions while giving them the tools to feel confident when I'm not around.
Math, physics and test prep lessons in Greensboro, NC.
I have privately tutored math, science, history, and english (including SAT 1 and SAT subject tests) for 5 years. Several of my students scored 800s (perfect score is 800). I taught children (grades K-11) in these subjects as well. I have also taught SSAT for middle school students. I also taught at JEI where I taught children ranging from 1st grade to 12th grade reading, writing, and math. I love working with kids and I try to make sure that they are having a good time while learning.
I tutor in English, writing, study skills, psychology, as well as math. I also have experience preparing students for the verbal portions of the SSAT and the ISSE.
Furthermore, I have prepared students for the verbal section of the SAT/ACT for the past several years. I give my students the tools needed to approach both of these tests - finding the main idea, answering inference questions, as well as answering questions involving vocabulary.
