About Serena

I graduated from Villanova University with a B.A in Political Science and University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education with an M.S.Ed in Education Policy. I have three years of experience working in college admissions, and I have spent the last few years assisting students as a tutor, college coach, and educator.

I love connecting with students and learning about their individuals experiences and learning styles. It's a privilege to assist others with subject areas and provide them with a clearer understanding of what they are learning. My subject ares of expertise are: Political Science, History, Government, Social Sciences, English, Research Methods, Essay Revisions, and College Essays drafts.

I have experience working as a College Admission Counselor for three years. A part of my job responsibilities included reviewing essay submissions from students and rating content, grammar, and content. My experiences have provided me with the opportunity to read stellar essays comprised of interesting and engaging stories. I've also conducted interviews with students and given presentations in several subject areas.

Mastering a subject area can be difficult, but it should never be viewed as impossible! Let's connect and work on mastering these areas together!

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

For three years I have worked in selective college admissions, currently working as an Assistant Director of Admission. My job entails recruiting applicants, reviewing applications to several programs, reading essays, and reviewing for scholarship opportunities. I have experience working with students from diverse racial and socioeconomic backgrounds, and discussing the best college settings for them.

Whether it's a survey of topics in American politics, Congress, or International Politics, I can provide students with an in-depth understanding of issues.
