Manhattanville College (Master's)
Hello! My name is Dustin and my professional background is in helping college students succeed. I currently work at Wentworth Institute of Technology as a Student Service Representative and was previously at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY as a Resident Director. In these positions, I've helped many students with issues both personal and academic. I'm now looking to bring my experience to students working on getting to college, even if they've got plenty of grade-school left to go.
I have a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing as well as a Bachelor of the Arts in English with a focus on writing. I actively enjoy reading and editing papers, be they creative or academic. My experiences are especially beneficial to students working on college essays, though I'm more than happy to help students develop their writing skills on any spectrum they need/prefer.
Before college, I went to a technical school for Computer Information Technology. I have always kept a side interest in working with computers and managed to include it with my professional careers; I often work with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc...) and have created several webpages for my employers. For students interested in learning the basics of webpage creation or HTML, I'm more than happy to work with them.
While my focus outlined above speaks to my education, I am not limited in any way in my desire to assist students succeed in any academic field. I have experience with many subjects and am happy to work with students to create sessions that best target what they need or want. I'm especially aware that standardized testing can be paramount to reaching the next step in a student's education, and I am more than willing to help the student with pre-testing and test prep for the MCAS or SATs (or other testing as needed).
For my actual availability, I am able to schedule sessions all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If students prefer evening sessions, then I am available every day of the week past 7:00pm.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Beyond that, good luck! Hello! My name is Dustin and my professional background is in helping college students succeed.

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.
