Yale University (English, Poly Sci)
My name is Dylan H., and I just finished my sophomore year at Yale University. I study English and Political Science at Yale. My focus in English is on Shakespeare and Post-Colonial Literature. In Political Science, I focus on theories of Democracy and development projects, both domestic and abroad.
My relevant work experience includes a summer as a Program Assistant for the Great Books Summer Program in Stanford University. The program focuses on bringing the classics to students age 12-18 in seminar style classes. I led discussion sections, assisted individual students with the lecture material, and even developed my own literature elective for one week. My elective read philosophical accounts of government ranging from Plato to Roman historians to the new Swedish constitution. During the fall of 2015 I worked as the New Haven Coordinator for Yale Model Congress, which meant that I prepared a team of 20 New Haven High School Students for Model Congress competition. We worked on writing bills, speech writing, public speaking and other skills related to the conference. Beyond my teaching work, I have worked for Senator Claire McCaskill's office, the Yale Slifka Center, the Yale Medical School Web Team, and have served as the Floor Leader of the Left for the Yale Political Union. I am currently serving as Business Manager for the Yale Society of Orpheus and Bacchus, a singing group with a yearly budget of $40,000 that most recently traveled on tour to Moscow, Russia.
I have academic, work, and extracurricular experience in the skills necessary for tutoring in general, and for help with English and writing in particular. I would be happy to help students write college applications, prepare for ACT or SAT tests, write and revise papers or work on other course material.

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.
I have extensive experience in theatre and debate. At Yale, I am in the Political Union. I was the Floor Leader of the Left, which meant I was responsible for working with students on their speeches, both content and style. I coached a Model Congress team in my role as New Haven Director of Outreach for Yale Model Congress. I participated in High School Debate for several years, and won the district debate tournament my senior year. I was on the 3rd place team in the National High School Ethics Bowl Competition.
