About Johanna

Hi my name is Johanna. I'm a graduating senior from Williams College with a B.A. in Political Science with a concentration in global studies. Next year I will be attending the University of Oxford in pursuit of a Masters degree in comparative social policy. I first became interested in tutoring during my high school years. There I tutored at the Math center and the writing center to help students of all grade levels with homework, projects, and particular areas of difficulty. I also worked with my local library and was involved in several reading and tutoring programs in my home town of Cranston.

I love tutoring because I know the value and importance of one-on-one assistance. It always helped me to be able to work at my own pace and explore difficult topics in depth so that I could master them. I love being able to provide this assistance to the students I tutor. We all learn at different speeds and in distinct ways. Tutoring helps fill the gaps where the traditional speed of the classroom fails.

Critical reading and writing skill are some of my strong suits. I scored a 790 and a 780 on my SAT reading and writing sections, respectively. Having tutored numerous students in the use of critical reading and writing techniques I am able to assist with a number of difficulties that will help students become strong critical thinkers and apply those skills to their reading.

As a student of American political science at one of the country's leading liberal arts colleges, I have thoroughly studied American history and government. I am therefore particular suited to tutor in this area as the information is fresh in my mind and it is the subject I have chosen for my career.

Please contact me for more information. I'd love to sit down and work out a personalized plan for your student. I'm open to a flexible schedule and I'm happy to work with you to make the progress you need!
