About Tyler

Hi everyone! I am currently a PhD student in Comparative Literature at NYU and hold a BA in English from Haverford College. I have years of professional tutoring and college counseling experience, covering subjects ranging from the SAT, ACT and the GRE, to the humanities and writing in all its forms (admissions essays, research essays, general non-fiction and fiction, cover letters, etc.). I'm reliable, down to earth, and adapt my methods to each individual student in order to find strategies that work best for them. I'm confident I can help you, your student or your child achieve their goals. Hi everyone!

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.

College Counseling

As a graduate of a liberal arts college ranked #11 of all colleges and universities by Forbes, and as a current student in a PhD program ranked #3 in my field, I am intimately familiar with the intricate nature of undergraduate and graduate admissions processes, and especially the admissions processes of so called "top tier" universities. As a minority student at Haverford, I was frequently asked to meet with prospective minority students to help them decide if Haverford was a good choice for them, and to help them weigh the pros and cons of attending Haverford versus others schools they were considering or had applied to. If they had not already been accepted to Haverford, I was also tasked with discussing their application with them, and giving advice that might help them improve their chances of admission. This not only gave me valuable experience with college counseling, but also afforded me a behind the scenes look at the admissions process, as staff frequently spoke with me about how admissions decisions are made, what they look for in a candidate, etc. Additionally, graduate students at NYU are an important part of the admissions process, and have a major impact on helping select future graduate students. As such, I have also been privy to the inner-workings of graduate student admissions, and have learned a lot of "inside information" about what graduate admissions committees do and do not want to see in "statements of purpose," the seriousness with which GRE scores are taken, and the role that letters of recommendation play. I believe this experience will greatly aid my ability to tutor college counseling effectively.

Guitar

I have played and studied guitar for close to fifteen years, and have taught guitar lessons for the last five. I am an experienced player with a solid knowledge of musical theory, and possess a highly advanced technical prowess. I teach basic to intermediate guitar, as well as advanced blues, rock, and "shred" guitar. Regarding these advanced topics, I specialize in teaching blues, pentatonic, and major/minor scale improvisation, as well as difficult "shred" guitar techniques, such as sweep picking, legato and alternate picking.

Well-prepared and encouraging tutor! — Tyler is a great tutor - skilled at recognizing my particular needs and speaking in a language that I can understand.
