I'm Sydney! I recently graduated from Brown University with a degree in anthropology. In college, I honed my research, writing, and analytical skills, while also realizing the important impact that teachers and tutors throughout my life have had on my education. Working as a teaching assistant for a freshman seminar, I gained experience helping younger students write and edit essays, and I found that these skills translated well when helping friends and family with both college application essays and essays for high school and college English and History classes.

In high school, I scored in the 99th percentile on both the SAT and the ACT, and earned 5s on eight AP exams. I am comfortable and familiar with these standardized tests, and I am happy to help high schoolers with test-taking skills, study strategies, and practice schedules in order to help them raise their scores. These tests are difficult, but they can be mastered!

Throughout high school and college, I have not only written consistently highly-graded essays, but I have also formally and informally assisted peers and students with outlining, editing, and proofreading. I can teach students how to best structure their essays, while providing feedback along the way.
I am also highly skilled in reading comprehension as tested on standardized exams, and I am happy to help teach students how to better understand and analyze passages on the SAT, ACT, and AP tests.

I want to benefit my students as much as possible, so I am happy to work at the pace and frequency most comfortable for them. I am easy to reach, responsive, and eager to talk more about your needs!
