About Lizzie

Are you looking for SAT, college essay, or general writing help? I would be happy to help you reach your writing and testing goals. My teaching style focuses on helping students find their own mistakes and talk through writer's block; I know how important gentle, patient encouragement can be to learning.

In terms of academic background, I'm a senior at Wellesley College studying computer science. I graduated from Lexington High School in 2013, and my SAT score back in high school was 2340.

My tutoring background began in my junior year of high school, when I started tutoring English as a second language for elementary and middle schoolers. My first year of college, the nonprofit Let's Get Ready helped me branch out into SAT tutoring and college prep at Framingham high school, where I taught small SAT and college essay classes for low-income students. I am comfortable tutoring the new SAT as well as more general writing and the college application process. I also still love working with elementary and middle school aged students on writing, grammar, and vocabulary!

In terms of logistics, I mostly tutor at the Wellesley College Clapp Library or out of Starbucks and currently have a lot of evening and weekend availability. Just get in touch and we'll work something out!

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.

College Counseling

I am a current sophomore at Wellesley College; in my freshman year at Wellesley, I worked with the nonprofit Let's Get Ready to coach first-generation, low-income students through the college process. From that experience, I learned how to tailor students' applications to bring out their strengths. I am confident that I can help students through everything from choosing which extracurricular activities to include in their Common App, to editing a personal statement, to simply understanding the application and financial aid process.

Study Skills

As an ESL and SAT tutor, I often find myself helping students with organization and study skills. From setting up a binder to working through flash cards efficiently to making personalized study guides, I know that I can teach students the skills they need to ace tests and avoid stress. In my own studies as a Psychology major at Wellesley College, I have seen how crucial organization, scheduling, and planning are to success. I am confident that I can personalize my own study methods for students while also helping them find their own unique study tools.
