About Mitch

I graduated from Connecticut College this past May with a degree in English. I will begin my medical education in the summer of 2017 at University of Virginia. In the meantime, I look forward to using the wide academic experience I gained during my liberal arts education to help students achieve success in math, science, and the humanities. Tutoring is a pleasure for me, and I have helped many students achieve success in my two years of experience.

Chemistry is at the center of the pre-medical curriculum. In addition to my study, I have helped a number of students in general chemistry at the high school, AP, and college level. I emphasize a thorough understanding of and experience with practice problems. I also help students to develop a detailed sense of how concepts relate to real-world situations, making a difficult subject less abstract.

My degree is in English, and I have two years of experience tutoring writing, research, and literature skills. I have worked with students at the high school and college level, including students with learning disabilities.

High school math--algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, precalculus--make up my most popular subjects. With my experience tutoring class material and SAT/ACT prep, I have learned to adapt the same material to the needs of different students.

I think that the main virtue of tutoring over classroom teaching is the opportunity to work one-on-one. Most students benefit from the individual attention, and for some (myself included) it is essential. My goal in tutoring is to bring the student to a point where she doesn't need me anymore, where she feels confident not only with a particular body of content, but with her own ability to learn. For each student, this means something different, and I look forward to helping you find what you need to reach this level of confidence and independence.

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.

English

My degree is in English, as is my current graduate work. As an undergraduate major I earned straight A's in my courses and won academic awards for my writing. I have formally tutored English at the university and high school level, and I always have friends coming to me to read their essays.

German

I have studied German for over two years (including a summer in Germany) and have tutored it at all levels. I have an advanced proficiency in all aspects of the language, as well as extensive experience in everyday and professional conversation.

SAT Reading

I have a long record of receiving the highest scores in the verbal sections of standardized tests, including the PSAT, ACT, and GRE, as well as the SAT. Using practice problems and comparison, I help students to think critically about the problems on these tests. My goal is not only to lead students to the right answer, but to help them understand why the answer is right, and how to transfer strategies from one problem to another.
