In the fall, I will commence my junior year at the University of Pennsylvania. I was also admitted to Dartmouth College, Duke University, Cornell University and Northwestern University. I have a great deal of experience with the college admissions process, and I am very familiar with the SAT, ACT and Advanced Placement examinations. I would love to help other students get into the colleges of their dreams via consulting on applications, essays, etc.
In terms of my personal experience with standardized tests, I received perfect scores on both the reading and math sections of the ACT and the math section of the SAT; I also took 16 AP Exams. My students find my testing strategies to be extremely effective come test day, and they find that they result in remarkable gains once scores come through.
Having spent the last five years tutoring students in public speaking, I have a great deal of experience and look forward to continue tutoring over the summer. I am interested in tutoring in math (Algebra I to AP Calculus BC), English (SAT/ACT Prep to AP English Lang/Lit), introductory economics and history (any level).
I am very familiar with the ACT; I received a 34 on the exam.
I am very familiar with the ACT Math; I received a perfect score of 36 on this section.
I have been fostering my Algebra I since I took the course in seventh grade.
I am familiar with AP Calculus AB and BC. I received a score of "5" on both exams.
I have a great deal of experience with college admissions, especially ivy league admissions. I was admitted to three of the eight ivy league schools before selecting UPenn. I am familiar with all of the aspects of the admissions process, including alumni interviews, essay writing, test preparation, etc.
I have completed college level criminal justice coursework, and have a significant amount of background knowledge in the subject, especially when it comes to Supreme Court cases.
I have taken both AP English Language and Composition and AP English Literature and Composition. I received a 5 on the AP English Language and Composition exam, and I have yet to receive my AP English Literature and Composition score.
I took AP European History, and I received a 5 on the AP Exam.
Having spent the last five years in the entertainment industry (my sister is an actress), I am very familiar with filmmaking, the production process and show business in general. I am an award-winning filmmaker; I have won second prize in the nation (twice) in C-SPAN's StudentCam Video Documentary Competition.
I just completed AP Human Geography.
I received a certificate in college geometry at Davidson College through the Duke TIP program when I was in the seventh grade; I took the course at my school in eighth grade.
Government and politics is my strongest subject. I just completed AP Government and Politics, and I received a perfect score (not just a 5 but a legitimate perfect score!) on a practice AP Government exam administered at my school; I have yet to receive my official AP Government score. My knowledge of government was cultivated during my time spent interning in a Congressional office in Washington, DC. My intended major is political science.
I just completed AP English Literature and Composition, and I have read close to 30 classical texts over the past two years alone. I have spent a great deal of time analyzing these texts and writing essays on these works. I am also familiar with the SAT Literature Subject Test.
I have made hundreds of PowerPoint presentations.
Microsoft Word is my word processor of choice; I have probably used Microsoft Word to create more than 1,000 documents.
I am a political science major at the University of Pennsylvania, and I'm currently finishing up my junior year. I am an honors student and have served numerous internships for members of Congress, governors and have worked on political campaigns. I have experience tutoring in government and politics and an intricate understanding of public policy.
As a National Merit Commended Status student, I have a great deal of experience with the PSAT.
I am extremely interested in psychology, and I took AP Psychology.
At one point during the year, I was ranked number 6 in the country in Public Forum Debate, putting me in the top .5% of debaters nation-wide. Public speaking is my thing, and I have worked with over 200 students over the past five years and assisted them in honing their public speaking skills. I am a National Forensic League Member of Premier Distinction and was proud to receive their prestigious All-American Award about a year ago.
I received a perfect score of 800 on the SAT Math section. I am very familiar with the format.
I received a score of 740 on the SAT Reading. I am very familiar with the format.
My work in AP English Language and Composition and AP English Literature and Composition have honed my writing abilities tremendously. I received a 5 on the AP English Language and Composition exam, and I have yet to receive my score on the AP English Literature and Composition. I am very familiar with how to structure essays, especially essays utilized on standardized tests.
