About Helena

I am a rising third year at Grinnell College, a liberal arts college in Iowa. Before college, I attended Brooklyn Technical High School, where I was on the Tutoring Committee all four years and the President my fourth year. Currently I am a peer tutor at my college and it's one of my favorite extracurricular activities.

I'm someone who looks at tutoring as a way for all students to enhance their skills in certain subjects. It is not just for those struggling and shouldn't be looked down upon. Everyone can use a little help now and then, and from my experience, it's the students that ask for help that do best.

I often tutor my younger cousins in elementary math, so I am brushed up on all the current methods and course material.

I have taken two years of Arabic in college as well as an 8 week intensive Arabic class in Amman, Jordan last summer.

As an English and Psychology double-major, I write a lot. I've had a lot of grooming in English writing, reading and grammar.

I am home for the summer and would love to take on tutees! I am willing to meet in coffee shops or tutor online! Don't be afraid to reach 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.

Arabic

I have taken two formal years of Arabic in college. In addition to the two years, I spent last summer in Amman, Jordan taking an intensive Arabic course as well as speaking the language with natives in the city. I still have all of my Arabic work from college as well as my time in Jordan and can review if necessary.
