ShiraI am a third-year student studying Biochemistry at Brandeis University. I have three great passions in life: science, teaching, and discovery. My career in Biophysics research gives me numbers one and three, and private tutoring on the side lets me indulge in teaching too! I have five years of tutoring experience ranging from juniors in high school to the collegiate level and am ready and willing to help students learn new concepts. My approach to teaching is best described as persistent and positive, but I also adapt to my student's needs. My areas of expertise include standardized test prep (SSAT/ACT/SAT), Biology, Physics, and Chemistry. I also enjoy my collegiate debate team, reading, and research. Reach out to me today if you're ready to work toward your academic goals!

DavidI am from Boston, but I attended the University of Colorado-Boulder, earning my bachelor's degree in geography. I have lived in five countries and visited thirty-seven total countries. I have developed a pssion for education and knowledge. I know that learning a new language can be intimidating and stressful. I can help with the Spanish language. I can also help with writing, essay editing, and study skills. I strongly emphasize learning, and I use speaking and listening exercises in my lesson plans. When I am not helping others, I am a professional designer and copywriter. I also play basketball, listen to music, and go cycling. I look forward to meeting you.

CourtneyAfter high school, I came to Tufts University, where I am currently working towards my bachelor's degree in economics, international relations, and communication. I run a magazine online that I use to teach other writers and editors. Because of my strong background in tutoring, which I began while I was in high school and part of the National Honor Society, I am able to tutor students in wide variety of subjects, from expository writing to economics, and from English grammar to Spanish. I also have helped students successfully prepare for standardized exams like AP exams, ACT, SAT, and more. I enjoy helping my tutoring students understand their material better and gain confidence in their ability to learn.
