About Killian

Hi,

My name’s Killian Y.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.

I currently work for a music publication, Consequence of Sound, as a writer, photographer, and social media manager. I have also worked with Rolling Stone and SPIN. My availability generally falls on weekday evenings and on the weekends.

I hail from a sleepy suburb of New Jersey outside of New York City. My previous work experience includes being an editorial intern for Rapp (an advertising agency), a tutor in high school, and a second-grade teacher's assistant at Oakton Elementary School in Evanston, Ill.

My experience working with younger kids has taught me that establishing a friendly relationship with the student is key to getting results. The way I conduct tutoring is always very low-key and low-pressure with positive encouragement. I want the student to feel that his or her tutoring session isn't a chore or punishment, but rather more along the lines of receiving academic help from a friend.

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.

Writing

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. I have nearly five years' experience writing for publications that include Rolling Stone, SPIN, Consequence of Sound, Metro News and more. I also have a minor in Sociological Studies, and have a background in writing for the social sciences.
