About Muriel

Students will undoubtedly benefit from my tutoring sessions. I have both a strong academic profile and extensive experience teaching that make me a perfect tutoring candidate.

I graduated Salutatorian from Hinsdale Central High School with a 5.95 GPA in my class of over 650 students. I took 7 Advanced Placement courses and received 5s on each of these AP tests. I graduated from Yale Unviersity in 2015 with distinction. I received Summa Cum Laude honors and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.

I also have a decorated teaching and tutoring history. I have been tutoring students one-on-one for over 7 years, students of a variety of ages and in an array of different subject areas. I worked with elementary students in all of their coursework, as well as high school and college students in more specific subjects. I have also tutored students for the past 7 years in their ACT and SAT preparations. My students improved as many as 9 points on the ACT. I am currently a high school Algebra teacher and work closely with the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards as part of my curriculum.

I am extremely flexible with my scheduling and my tutoring, I work very well with students of all ages, and I guarantee improvement and success in whichever subjects I am tutoring.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have tutored students with ADD and ADHD for over five years. I've also been diagnosed with ADHD myself, and have learned study habits and methods to work around this. I have found ways to excel academically despite this learning disability, enough so to graduate in the top 1% of my Hinsdale Central High School class and to attend Yale University.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored elementary students for over 8 years in a variety of subjects. I also work with young children, both inside and outside the classroom. At Yale, I have developed a strong relationship with the Boys & Girls Club of New Haven. There, I mentor and tutor the elementary-aged children of the New Haven community.
