About Cosima

I am an SAT and ACT tutor, and I also tutor Spanish and French. I double-majored at Yale and graduated with Distinction in both of my majors: Literature and Theater. I am passionate about what I do. I have always loved learning as a student, which is why I love teaching and imparting knowledge onto my students. My favorite part of my job is inspiring students and helping them to love learning as much as I do.

As an SAT/ACT tutor, I provide all material for my sessions. I provide students with handouts, and we do exercises together. Tutoring with me is fun, as I love what I do!

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.

ACT Math

I have helped raise students' scores on the ACT from low 20s to high 20s and 30s.

English

I graduated from Yale with Distinction in Literature. I am in the top 1% of the nation in terms of my standardized test scores for English. You cannot find anyone who knows more about English grammar than I do, especially since I am trilingual. "If you want to be good at grammar, learn a different language."

French

Studied French at the Lycée International for 8 years and at Yale

Prealgebra

When at Yale, I was a professional math grader for the Yale Math Department. I was hired by my mathematics professor who saw me as the best student in the class.

SAT Reading

While at Yale, I was a math grader for Math 107.

Spanish

I am a fluent Spanish speaker. I graduated from Yale with Distinction in Comparative Literature. Spanish was my foreign language concentration for my major.

Vocabulary

I double majored at Yale in Literature and Theater, and I graduated with Distinction in both of my majors. I have been tutoring for nearly my whole life. I began tutoring in middle and high school through the California Honors Society. I have been tutoring and teaching professionally since I graduated from Yale. I have a very high success rate with students. From helping raise students' test pep scores over 100 points to helping bring failing grades to passing grades in classes, I have made a significant impact on students' academics. I also pride myself in having inspired my students to love learning as much as I do.
