My name is Pierre, and I hold a Bachelor's from Harvard College and a Master's from Harvard Divinity School. I have taught SAT English (Verbal and Writing) to high school students over a seven-year period and feel rather confident in my ability to teach all levels. In my previous tutoring work, I created curriculum to teach the SAT Verbal and Writing sections. Over the years, I have worked with over 300 students not only in SAT preparation (Verbal and Writing) but also in college essay writing (expository writing), Spanish, English as a Second Language, and in preparing college applications (essays, resumes, etc). If you are looking for a tutor to help you improve your writing, I would be a great choice. I currently write for the Huffington Post and have contributed to other publications and blogs including NBC.
In addition to the SAT, I am comfortable teaching students Spanish, basic mathematics, and public speaking/media training. In fact, I was a fellow at a national media institute and have received a lot of training in interviewing, public speaking, television appearances, and general communications. I am happy to help students in these areas, as I have given a number of media training workshops. Feel free to contact me if you are interested. Whether you pick me or another tutor, I wish you the best of luck in your preparation.
Cancellation Policy--I have a 12-hour cancellation policy, so please be mindful when scheduling classes.
Location--I am happy to travel to your home, library, or coffee shop for lessons. However, I recognize some students prefer to "get away" from the usual places. In that case, I am happy to reserve the study space (conference room) in my apartment building. I live in the North End area.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Social Anthropology from Harvard University. I also hold a Minor in Ethnic Studies. In addition, I hold a Master's from Harvard Divinity School where I applied anthropological methodology to my studies. In fact, my graduate thesis adviser was the founder of existential and phenomenological anthropology, a world renown anthropologist, novelist, and poet.
I worked with high school students over a 7 year period. I reviewed college application essays as well as resumes and helped them prepare compelling application packages. I also have extensive experience in the interview process.
I am the Communications and Marketing Coordinator for the national institute on domestic violence for the Latino community in the United States. Before my current job, I was a National Fellow at the Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation's People of Color Media Institute where I obtained extensive training on working with the media, specifically public speaking, television and radio interviewing, and presentations. Furthermore, I was part of the New American Leaders Project (NALP) where I obtained extensive training in political organizing through the lens of marketing and communications (media training, public speaking, talking points, framing).
I have given several workshops on media training, social media, and organizational/company messaging. These workshops have taken place locally here in Boston and nationally.
