Tufts University (Child Development)
I am an experienced tutor certified in over 50 subjects. I'm a college graduate of Tufts University, Medford, MA and have passed my CBEST and worked with children for the past 15 years. I have taught in all environments in ratios of 1:1 to 8:1. For example, I have home-schooled a 12-year old, tutored part-time at Huntington Learning Center and for the past two summers, I have taught SAT Math and Geometry in a classroom environment (Top Learning Center and Perfect Score Academy). I actually just took an SAT where I got a perfect 800 in math and 760 in verbal.
I can tutor in such subjects as all types of standardized tests (ACT/SAT/GRE), math (algebra/geometry), reading, writing, and biology. In addition to traditional subjects, I can also teach your child to read, refine their study skills or even improve their athletic ability.
I have a car, a clean driving record and passed a recent background check.

I try to round each lesson to the nearest 5 minutes.
Evan is awesome! Very patient and laid back. I am not a quick learner when it comes to math and Evan always takes his time explaining things and has no problem going over the same problem as man times he needs to, to make sure I understand the material. My skills have definitely improved in the short time we've been working together.
Evan is great. He reviewed with my daughter for a social studies test. He is very patient and has a great sense of humor.
My son needed help in Geometry. He loves football and to stay with the team he had to pass his test. We needed a tutor and needed it now. I hired a tutor and I am sure she was good but it was not the right match for my son. She made it sound like there was no hope for my son and to turn him around it was going to take a long long time. My son refused to work with her and said he did not care for another tutor. After going back and forth with my son I convinced him to give another tutor a shot and if it did not work then we will come up with another plan. I saw Evan and read his reviews and thought he may be a good match. He looked like he could be the older brother to my son and put him on the right path. He came in and right away spoke to my son about football. Right there I saw my son’s interest rising and was ready to listen what Evan had to say. He went right into the subject and started working with him. He also knew how to work with my son to make Geometry not look like a task. He did not waste any time and never gave us any negative feedback. My son looks forward to his tutoring sessions and he passed his test.
My son had 3 weeks to fully prepare for the ISEE exam. Evan came in and THOROUGHLY prepared him. He was able to quickly assess my son's strengths and weaknesses and, with humor and focus, got him fully up to speed in vocab, comprehension, algebra, and essay writing. Evan is fantastic. And my son actually looked forward to their sessions!
Evan really saved the day for me. I was very nervous to have to retake my Cbest Math test. Apparently I had learned my elementary math incorrectly and have been dependent upon a calculator. I had really bad experiences in math and developed a mental block. I has failed my first Cbest math and felt so lost due to all of my misteachings. In a short amount of time Evan retaught me everything from the beginning. I needed a 41 to pass and I scored a 61!!! I couldn't believe it. I have never felt confident in math and Evan was so patient with me, he really built my confidence and simplified everything for me. I was under a tremendous amount of pressure as passing this test was the only way to continue my graduate program. Not only was I able to be calm for the test, I even finished my test an hour early and felt 100% confident about it. I am very grateful and I highly recommend Evan as a tutor.
Evan was great!! He really helped my daughter with her college entrance essays. I highly recommend him!! My daughter was so stressed out over college applications and Evan was wonderful and efficient and very knowledgable. He was very prompt and did not waste a single minute.
Evan is a very good understanding tutor, he help me and make me understand a lot of things on computer. I recommend everyone to try him. Thank you Evan!
We were looking for a tutor for our son in math over the summer. He had fallen behind in 6th grade math and was tasked with finishing a monster packet in order to ensure that he could go directly into 7th grade math in the fall. Evan was great from the start. He broke things down, used props and visuals to help explain concepts and was extremely patient. He even re-explained something to me that I had forgotten, so that I could go over the packet and make sure my son was doing it correctly. He was able to finish the packet by the deadline and I am confident that he is prepared for the coming school year. And it's comforting to know that we'll have Evan's help when school starts, to make sure that he doesn't fall behind again.
Evan has been tutoring my daughter for the SAT for a number of weeks now and things have been going very well. He is very responsive to emails and phone calls, he is easy to reach. He is always on time and willing to remind me about scheduling appointments each week which I really appreciate. My daughter reports that she is learning a lot in her sessions. Evan is very positive. When I overhear the sessions I can hear that he often provides positive reinforcement for attempts and he is able to put a positive spin on incorrect answers as well. His approach seems to be highly motivating for my daughter. I am sure this is a great approach for any person he tutors. I highly recommend Evan to anyone who needs tutoring.
Evan has had several tutoring sessions with my daughter. He has accommodated her schedule and has been very patient with her. He always arrived on time and got started to work immediately. He has overcome her lack of interest and brought her greater understanding in general of the math and essay questions. We will use him again when her schedule is open for more tutoring. She and I are both very happy with him!
I was very pleased with Evan's work ethic, he's very professional and patient. He gave me positive feedback and explained clearly to me what he feels works as far as what employers want to see in any resume. I would definitely ask him to tutor me again in any subject. He is very knowledgeable and he is very easy to work with!
Evan was brought in to help prepare our son for the ACT. Evan has the background and knowledge in this area which was evident when he started to work with our son. He is very easy going, and easy to converse with which made it better for our son. Afterwards, our son expressed positive comments that Evan was patient and had great insight into the areas needing to be addressed. We highly recommend Evan for future parents contemplating whether or not the higher fees are worth it compared to lesser hourly charging tutors. Thank you Evan!
Evan was fantastic in helping our daughter with her honors algebra. Our daughter was about 4 weeks behind and Evan did a great job of catching her up and keeping her up to date with the new sections. He was proficient in a wide range of complicated mathematical problems including Algebra and Geometry. Evan was also very patient and got our daughters grades up 40 percentage points!
Evan was easy to work with, punctual, professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with their PC.
Evan had less than 10 days to get our daughter ready to take the SAT for the second time. Her score increased by 170 after only 5 sessions. He also helped her sharpen her test taking techniques and worked patiently with her to increase her speed in problem solving. Our daughter has since been offered 3 scholarships. Thanks Evan!
Great tutor! He knows what he's teaching and made it easy for me to learn. I look forward to my next lesson.
Evan is very capable and a very good teacher. Heads up! He is so gentle and quiet that it is easy to underestimate him. I will definitely continue to ask for him.
Evan did a great job! He met with me a number of times to help me create various videos. Evan has an extensive knowledge of imovie on the Mac and helped me produce wonderful videos to post online!
Evan tutored our 17 year old triplets for the SAT exam. He helped to increase their math scores significantly. Although we had a scheduled time, he was flexible and stayed longer if necessary. The kids enjoyed working with him, and he was very patient and accommodating. Thanks Evan for all of your help!
My daughter has struggled with math throughout high school. We hired Evan to help prepare her for the SAT and improve her math score. He is an excellent tutor, combining intense instruction with patience and humor. Evan helped my daughter improve her math skills and gain self-confidence. I highly recommend him!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have played since I was 10 and in various leagues through high school and college. I can teach shoot, pass, dribble and through various games. I know the professional game well if you are looking for specific plays too.
I have been a human resources consultant for seven years having reviewed resumes and cover letters from tens of thousands of applicants. I know what grabs an employer's attention and what doesn't. I have also been sculpting cover letters and resumes myself for the past ten years and can customize them based on the job to which you're applying.
I have passed and tutored the cbest test. I go over the Reading section and how it assesses your ability to comprehend information presented in written passages, tables, and graphs. I teach the two major skill areas: critical analysis and evaluation, and comprehension and research skills. I am very strong on the Mathematics section and help students understand the problems and how most of the questions are presented as word problems. I am strong on writing as well and illustrate how one topic asks you to analyze a given situation or statement and the other asks you to write about a specified personal experience.=
I have experience writing college essays, completing college applications and advising students on what tests are recommended for what schools. I have experience in California submitting to state schools, the UC system and the common app. I have also been an alumni interviewer for my college for the past ten years and know what schools are looking for and am great at coaching interviews.

I have used Windows for the last 15 years. I can show people how to run their computer faster, add/delete programs and navigate overall. This also translates into how to use Microsoft Office. I am comfortable with Windows 95 through 2010.
I have ten years experience of public speaking from speaking in classrooms to auditoriums. I have addressed crowds on leadership, networking and business planning. I have also coached my students so they can get a better handle on how they communicate. My degrees are from Tufts University and NYU and I am confident in showing a person how to be natural yet commanding in front of an audience.
Of all the subjects I tutor, SAT math is my specialty. I have helped almost 100 students over the years raise their score, sometimes by 100s of points. Having gotten perfect scores of 800 on practice tests myself I can transfer that know-how to your child and uncover what words or concepts they don't understand which would block them from full certainty. I greatly enjoy seeing my students discover the solution for themselves rather than spoon-feeding them. I look forward to helping your student.
