About Devin

I majored in English at Tufts University where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with Highest Thesis Honors. I have a Masters in English from USC and am finishing a PhD in English there. I have created, designed, and taught numerous college writing and literature courses, so I know EXACTLY what many teachers are looking for.

I have worked at other tutoring companies, test prep companies, and colleges. I know all the ins and outs of the tutoring world, working in curriculum design, tutor training, and, of course, on the other end of the classroom. As a writing professor, I know what teachers are looking for, both in high school and college. I have many friends in admissions and know what they're looking for as well.

I can break down the SAT and ACT math into recognizable tricks, demystifying the process. Remember that you're not expected to know anything beyond basic geometry, with the exception of the ACT's few trig questions.

ACT Science is basically a test on reading graphs. Once you go into it with that knowledge, the whole test changes.

I'm fun and relatable. I'll help you on your essay or with the SATs or Shakespeare, but I'm not going to bore you. The more fun learning is, the more you get out of it and the better you will do.

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.
