Hello! I am a recent graduate of Wellesley College, and have been tutoring and working with kids in various capacities for several years. During college I worked for two years with Let's Get Ready, a volunteer SAT tutoring organization; our students' scores increased by an average of over 200 points. I tutored my kids in strategies for the verbal and writing sections; I'm willing to take a stab at the math, but would need some warning as I'm more of a word-oriented person. My personal scores on the SAT were 800 in verbal, 800 in writing, and 710 in math.
I also spent two years as a volunteer college adviser for low-income high school juniors, helping them navigate deadlines and come up with ideas for their essays, and have worked occasionally as a private Latin tutor. In addition, I have worked as a self-defense instructor for middle-school age girls, volunteer once a week at a preschool for homeless children, and have years of babysitting experience (including with my three younger siblings). I am currently looking at teaching residency programs for elementary education. When I'm not working with kids, I work as a political organizer and write young adult fantasy novels.
