About Griffin

I was head of my high school's student tutoring program. Extra-help sessions are, in my opinion, essential to how teaching and learning happen. The goal is to understand concepts above and beyond memorizing facts, and understanding concepts involves being able explain them adequately to someone who isn't at the point of comprehension yet.

I received a perfect score on my SAT Math subsection as well as on the Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test. Again, I believe a thorough knowledge of the test and understanding of the underlying concepts will prepare you for success on the SAT better than a more haphazard approach will. Then again, if you only have a few specific problem areas, we can hone in on those directly.

I also received a perfect score on my SAT Reading subsection and on the multiple-choice SAT Writing subsection.

If you want to get started, or if you have further questions for me, don't hesitate to write! I have a 24-hour cancellation notice policy but otherwise am flexible schedule-wise. Just let me know what it is you're looking to get help with, and I'll look to accommodate your needs and preferences as much as I can. Happy studying!

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.

Proofreading

I'm a student of the Chicago Manual of Style and have done work in the linguistics-rhetoric side of English language studies.

SAT Reading

English grammar, English usage, and English literature are three of my core interests as a student. Understanding the patterns within these three areas will allow you read and write more perceptively and more efficiently!
