About Bonnie

I received a high GPA in both my Master's in Applied Geosciences from the University of Pennsylvania and my Bachelor's in English Literature (German Minor) from NYU. I lived for 10 years in the EU and can help students understand how to apply for international college applications or study abroad. I am very familiar with both US and UK English speech, writing, and grammar; you'd be surprised how different they can be!

A natural mentor and tutor, I have tutored English in Germany and tutored students of all ages in reading and writing, including dyslexic students. My greatest strength is that I pay attention to how my students learn and I tailor my teaching method so they get the most out of each lesson. I empower my students by showing them how they learn and enable them to regain confidence in their work so that they eventually no longer need my help!

I have sound experience in proofreading and writing gained through publication in academic journals and books, as well as college creative writing classes.

I have also used Word, PowerPoint, and Excel throughout my Master's and have attended university level Excel training courses in pivot tables, data analysis, charts and more!

I am great at helping students improve their scores in the 2016 SAT's. I have read the new 2016 testing guides and have only ever tutored to the 2016 version. I think it is important to hire a tutor who actually scored well and can pass that talent onto her students and help them get into the best university they can.

I have completed over ten Bachelor's and Master's level courses in geology, geochemistry, and other earth sciences subjects and am an enthusiastic science tutor.

Please message me to find out more, I look forward to hearing from you! Bonnie
