Hi there! My name is Ian, and I graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Psychology
. I've been tutoring various subjects since 2007, and I've particularly enjoyed helping high school students improve their test taking skills ahead of applying to colleges and universities. I also specialize in college counseling
and advising on college applications. As a fairly recent graduate, I'm proud of my ability to connect with my students on a more personal level to make sure that they're getting the most out of their sessions. Additionally, having founded and served as a director of development for a non-profit organization
in South Africa (The African Sports & Scholastic Initiative for Students in Townships - the ASSIST) that focuses on balancing academics with athletics, I do my very best to encourage my students to have broad interests in order to become well-rounded members of their communities. During that time, I served as an alumni interviewer for Harvard University admissions as well, and learned a bit more about the admissions mechanics for top national universities in the process.
Although I specialize in test prep and college counseling/applications, I'm more than happy to help out as a general subject tutor for students in elementary, middle, and high school. I'm currently working in the entertainment industry as a business
exec, and scheduling can sometimes be hectic, but I made a profile on Wyzant because I love helping students reach their potential and achieve whatever goals they might set for themselves. If we work together, I can guarantee that you will have a very passionate, caring tutor on your side.
If you're interested at all in the services I have to offer, don't hesitate to reach out! Please do note that while my rate is negotiable, it is a fairly accurate reflection of how I value my time outside of regular working hours based on my prior experience, results with students (test score improvements and college admissions), and the genuine care and effort that I put forth for each and every one of my students. I am willing to take exceptional students at a lower rate of pay, provided that they demonstrate an excellent work ethic and passion for improvement (to be determined on a case by case basis).
