About Eleanor

Homeschooled for most of my education (including high school), I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2009 with a double major in English (concentrating in Victorian literature) and philosophy (concentrating in moral philosophy). I plan to pursue my Master's degree and Ph.D., with the eventual goal of teaching at the college level, where I will undoubtedly be that crazy professor who jumps up and down on the desk while reciting Shakespeare.

In high school, I worked for two years as a tutor at my community college, where I worked with students in biology, chemistry, math, history, psychology, philosophy, English, computer skills, and drug dosage (the community college had a large nursing program- I may not know what a particular medicine is for, but I can tell you how much of it to administer!). After graduating from college, I began tutoring again, resuming almost all my former subjects, although my passion continues to be the humanities.

My goal in tutoring is to spark in my students a curiosity and love of learning that they can carry with them their whole lives. I've always believed that keeping a sense of wonder and a desire to learn makes life a lot more fun. If I can help bring that about in someone else, my life becomes a lot more fun as well.

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.
