Harvard University (Social Studies)
My name is Liz, and I would love to be your tutor!
I'm a San Francisco native, Harvard graduate, and former history teacher, but I love tutoring all subjects from English to Math. I have experience raising students' scores on standardized tests (SAT, ACT, AP) and coaching students to write successful college application essays.
Right after college (from 2011-2013), I participated in the Teach for America program and taught middle school Social Studies and high school US History (regular and AP). I really enjoyed teaching students at all levels of ability and interest: one of the most rewarding parts of teaching is getting to know each student, including how to motivate them, build their confidence, and help them to take ownership over the material.
I'm very friendly and patient, but I also have HIGH standards. I know that all students are smart and can succeed, so long as they work hard and believe they can do it.
You are going to be awesome at this! Let's meet up, and I'll prove it to you. My name is Liz, and I would love to be your tutor!

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.
