My first tutoring experience was helping fellow high school students in math and science, through our school's honor societies. Since then, I've graduated from college with a dual BS/BA, where I tutored underclassmen in biology, music theory, and more. I eventually received my Peer Tutoring Certification through our school's Academic Resource Center. Recently, I've moved from NYC to Portland and am so excited to help local students succeed!
First and foremost, I am a competent mathematics test-taker. My official test scores in high school were 770 (SAT math) and 34 (ACT math). And finally, I have a passion to TRANSMIT these skills to local students. A 10% increase in your score can open your world up to better opportunities.
In addition to receiving a 36 (yes, 36!) on my official ACT test, I graduated from college with a BS in neuroscience and have direct experience working in science laboratories. I have read thousands of scientific papers in school and work (remember, this is actually a reading comprehension exam!). I love science and would be happy to provide advice to any student looking towards a career in a STEM field.
See my other credentials for more specific scores. I have scored in similar percentiles on the Praxis math section and the GRE Quantitative Reasoning section (self-timed exams in a controlled environment). I am happy to provide any advice that I can for students looking towards careers in education (for any PRAXIS students) or graduate school (for my GRE friends).

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.
