About Darby

I am a recent graduate of the Georgetown School of Foreign Service with a degree in international politics, with more than six years of teaching experience. I specialize in SAT Reading and Writing for students of all ages, employing test-taking strategies and tips I've developed over time to help my students succeed. I also have abundant experience working with ESL students, helping those who may not be completely fluent in English achieve high scores on the SAT. I personally have a combined score of 2350 on my SAT (Reading 780, Writing 800) and all my former students have seen a 100-240 jump in their combined scores after studying with me.

Most importantly, I'm a patient, understanding, and skilled tutor, caring friend, and an effective motivator with a passion for education. I will always go the extra mile for my students, and I am excited to help your student aim higher in their college choices and in life. Please contact me to set up a meeting to discuss how we can best work to help your student meet their goals, or for verification of my credentials. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Korean

Korean is my native language, and I've lived in Korea for over 16 years spanning most of my formative years. I've taught Korean to adult ESL learners for three years, ranging from elementary to advanced speakers. My language teaching approach is systematic and topical, with a focus on immersion through music and visual media as homework to increase student interest.
