About Pierre

My name is Pierre, and I hold a Bachelor's from Harvard College and a Master's from Harvard Divinity School. I have taught SAT English (Verbal and Writing) to high school students over an eight-year period and feel rather confident in my ability to teach all levels. In my previous tutoring work, I created curriculum to teach the SAT Verbal and Writing sections. Over the years, I have worked with over 300 students not only in SAT preparation (Verbal and Writing) but also in college essay writing (expository writing), Spanish, English as a Second Language, and in preparing college applications (essays, resumes, etc). If you are looking for a tutor to help you improve your writing, I would be a great choice. I currently write for the Huffington Post and have contributed to other publications and blogs including NBC.

In addition to the SAT, I am comfortable teaching Spanish, basic mathematics, and public speaking/media training. In fact, I was a fellow at a national media institute and have received much training in interviewing, public speaking, television appearances, and general communications. I am happy to help students in these areas, as I have given a number of media training workshops. Feel free to contact me if you are interested. Whether you pick me or another tutor, I wish you the best of luck in your preparation.

Cancellation Policy--I have a 12-hour cancellation policy. Please be mindful when scheduling classes.

Location--I am happy to travel to your home, library, or coffee shop for lessons as long as these places are accessible by public transportation.

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.

Anthropology

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Social Anthropology from Harvard University. I also hold a Minor in Ethnic Studies. In addition, I hold a Master's from Harvard Divinity School where I applied anthropological methodology to my studies. In fact, my graduate thesis adviser was the founder of existential and phenomenological anthropology, a world renown anthropologist, novelist, and poet.

College Counseling

I worked with high school students over a 7 year period. I reviewed college application essays as well as resumes and helped them prepare compelling application packages. I also have extensive experience in the interview process.

Public Speaking

I am the Communications and Marketing Coordinator for the national institute on domestic violence for the Latino community in the United States. Before my current job, I was a National Fellow at the Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation's People of Color Media Institute where I obtained extensive training on working with the media, specifically public speaking, television and radio interviewing, and presentations. Furthermore, I was part of the New American Leaders Project (NALP) where I obtained extensive training in political organizing through the lens of marketing and communications (media training, public speaking, talking points, framing).

I have given several workshops on media training, social media, and organizational/company messaging. These workshops have taken place locally here in Boston and nationally.

He asked questions in advance so he may prepare and structure the tutoring session in the areas where she needed the most help. With regards to help on her paper, he helped her formulate ideas, draw relat ...
