PaulI have several years of experience as a tutor and college instructor, and I'm driven by the opportunity to help students reach their goals and become self-sufficient learners. I have very strong evaluations for my students who believe that I'm skilled at teaching effectively. I also received an award as a teacher when I was a graduate school student. I currently teach world history, European history, and American history. Prior to that, I worked for seven years in journalism, so I'm skilled at writing as well. In addition, I've been an AP US history grader, and I scored very well on the GRE, ACT, and SAT. I'm looking forward to helping students in any of these areas. In my free time, I enjoy soccer, travel, building skill models, reading graphic novels, riding my bike, hiking, attending museums, and going out for live music.

HannahI enjoy tutoring because it gives me the opportunity to help students develop learning skills and confidence. I believe every student can be successful, and it's up to me to identify the strengths each student has so that they can be built upon. My tutoring specialties are history, writing, and reading, but I can also tutor ESL, history, English grammar, literature, anthropology, public speaking, world religions, psychology, test preparation, and more. I'm comfortable working with children all ages, and I've had a lot of experience working with students at the elementary school level. I'm excited to help new students realize their full academic potential. When I have free time, I'm interested in social justice, reading, drawing, and writing.

DanielI was born in western Pennsylvania, where I enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh. I graduated in 2011 with my bachelor of arts. I moved to Chicago, where I graduated from the University of Chicago with my master's inhumanities in 2013. I taught college-level students in Chicago for a couple of years. I'm back in Pittsburgh, where I both teach and tutor. I tutor in a variety of subjects, such as English, social sciences, philosophy, law, and art. I can prepare a student for their GRE subject test, whether they need to review the material or learn test-taking strategies that can improve their scores. I had to learn about college the hard way - no one in my family had been before me. There are many challenges that students face, as well as rewards for overcoming them. A private tutor can be a solid resource for improving one's chances at higher education. I can assist students in graduate test prep, ethics reviews, law coursework, and college essays. A solid foundation of the concepts involved in any course can mean a big difference. Thoroughly mastering the subject ensures self-confidence and preparedness. Outside of tutoring, I enjoy debating politics, learning about cultures, and going hiking.
