Stanford University and Oxford University (year abroad) history graduate seeks students for tutoring. I am a Westminster graduate (Atlanta, GA) who was at the top of the class in high school and A average in college. I was a National Merit finalist, graduated cum laude; Advanced Placement scholar with distinction. I was the head honor prefect in high school and received the Faculty Citizenship award and Yale Book award. I have studied under a Pulitzer Prize winning historian, and I am a former Kaplan tutor (3 years). I am interested in teaching students to reach their full potential on the SAT and in subjects. The SAT CAN BE prepared for and scores can go higher with the proper instruction and preparation on the student's part. I know that I can be a strong mentor for your student and hope that we will enjoy our tutoring sessions together. Parents' involvement is encouraged.

I tutor to try to maximize scores on the SAT. Every student I have tutored has seen at least a 100 point increase in their score from having a class with me. I live in Atlanta, GA, and can commute within the area (8 miles of Buckhead). I also can telecommute to do tutoring sessions. I charge $40 per hour. I tutor subjects also - History, English, Reading, and Math for elementary, junior high, and high school students.
