My name is Jorge, and I am a rising senior at Columbia University studying chemical physics with a minor in math and pursuing a pre-medical tract. Though my background is primarily in science and mathematics, I am also proficient in the areas of English, particularly grammar and reading/writing skills, and history. I am available to tutor all levels of math from elementary level to differential equations and linear algebra, as well as most fields of science, including elementary to advanced physics, chemistry, organic chemistry and biology. In the field of history, I am available to tutor American history as well as World history, and in the area of English, I can tutor anything form grammar and vocabulary to essay writing.

Tutoring for standardized tests is also available, including the SAT and ACT as well as most SAT Subject Tests. Students will receive a practice book and will be expected to complete homework from the books in between sessions.

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.

Bible Studies

I spent grades 6th through 12th at a Jesuit school were I took theology classes each year. On top of the bible studies I did in those classes, I studied the bible as a work of literature extensively through my first two years of college. Having been raised a lifelong Catholic also has led me to a lot of exposure to biblical studies.

Classics

As a student of Columbia University, I am required to take two year long classes called Literature Humanities and Contemporary Civilization. Through these two classes, I have read Homer's Odyssey and Iliad, Ovid's Metamorphoses, Virgil's Aeneid, and most of the great plays by the Greek tragedians, including Oedipus, Medea, and the Oresteia. I have actually studied these myths since elementary school, having been lucky enough to attend a school where the classics were stressed. With all my experience studying Greek and Roman mythology, it would not be difficult to tutor the subject of classics.
