Hello, allow me to give you a little information about myself and my abilities as a tutor. First off, I have a BA in International Studies, a partial MFA in Screenwriting, and have worked as a professional copywriter for an Internet Marketing company for 2 years. I have 3 years experience as a tutor. Throughout my academic career I have juggled various other activities such as sports, volunteer, and internships, so I have learned how to properly budget my time and can impart that knowledge to others!

I was diagnosed with ADD when I was younger, so I have had to develop specific studying and learning techniques, which will help anyone, not just those with a learning disorder. I have tutored English, math, writing, and history from 6th grade all the way to the college level. People say that I am friendly, understanding, and patient. That's all!

Look forward to working with you,
Alex H.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I was diagnosed with ADD when I was eleven years old, and have been living with it ever since. I do not take medication, but I did at one time, and I am not completely against it. I can offer plenty of advice and tips on how to succeed with or without medication.

Social Studies

I have a Bachelor's in International Studies from American University.
