Bio

Do you find yourself struggling with exams or course material? As a Brown University junior studying Biology and Hispanic Studies on a premedical track, I have successfully faced many high-pressure academic environments, and use my experience to help others who struggle with academic and test anxiety. I also offer college application counseling for students looking to become more competitive or polish their applications.

Do you find yourself struggling with exams or course material? As a Brown University junior studying Biology and Hispanic Studies on a premedical track, I have successfully faced many high-pressure academic environments, and use my experience to help others who struggle with academic and test anxiety. I also offer college application counseling for students looking to become more competitive or polish their applications.
I love to help others find the joy in learning, and have tutored K-12 students in SAT preparation, science, and Spanish for 7+ years. Working with varied student populations taught me how to harness students' unique learning needs to make exciting, positive educational experiences. My tutoring style focuses on developing problem-solving over memorization, so that students are able to apply and enjoy what they learn. I create individualized lesson plans for each student, emphasizing their learning style and challenges, and use interactive tools to foster a love of learning. I've found that this helps students develop confidence that they can utilize in all areas of their lives.

I have taken a multitude of standardized tests, including AP, SAT, and SAT Subject Tests, and offer test preparation in these areas. I scored in the top 1% of the SAT (1570/1600) and scored 5's on 12 AP exams. I also graduated as valedictorian of my competitive high school class. My lab internships at Brown University and UNC, as well as my college coursework, have further amplified my interest in biology and chemistry. Additionally, I volunteer as a Spanish medical interpreter at the Rhode Island Free Clinic. This opportunity, as well as my upper-level Brown coursework, have honed my fluency in the language, and I would love to help you develop strong Spanish communication abilities.
In my free time, you can find me playing saxophone or enjoying the outdoors! At Brown, I serve as the Outing Club Treasurer and organize outdoor adventures for our students. I am also a certified EMT in my school's EMS corps.

Whether you're brushing up on your Spanish, struggling in a course, or starting from scratch, look no further! I am a junior double-majoring in Hispanic Literatures and Cultures and Biology at Brown University. I have tutored 10+ students with varied Spanish-speaking experiences and abilities for the past seven years, and would be thrilled to help you on your language-learning journey! Speaking, reading, and writing in a different language require different skillsets, and I have substantial experience creating personalized education plans for students that help them address these key areas and build their Spanish-speaking prowess. I earned an 800 on the Spanish Subject SAT and am also a Spanish-speaking medical interpreter at my local free clinic.

If you want to raise your SAT Writing score, look no further! I scored a 780 on SAT Reading and Writing (2018 SAT) and have tutored 20+ students in SAT Writing preparation. All of my students increase their scores by at least 75 points, and feel more comfortable and confident problem-solving in a standardized testing environment. I focus on improving critical reading and analysis skills so students can feel more confident using these techniques in other academic and non-academic environments, instead of just during standardized tests! As a pre-med student at Brown University, I have substantial experience with high-pressure academic environments, and would love to share my tricks of the trade with you to help you reach -- and surpass -- your goals. I have also taken several writing classes as an undergraduate at Brown University and frequently peer-edit friends' and colleagues' essays before publication.

GREAT TUTOR!

I absolutely love Sophie! She was very patient and intelligent and walked me through everything step by step. She knew how to make everything make sense. I definitely recommend her as a tutor!!

Heather, 1 lesson with Sophie

SAT math prep

My daughter loved her energy, she was easy to follow, and my daughter was felt empowered and was smiling even after just the first session! More sessions booked!

Sheila, 4 lessons with Sophie

Wonderful SAT tutor

I didn't get the score I wanted on my last SAT, so I started looking for tutoring. I found Sophie and I am so happy and scoring so much better on my practice tests! She explains the material in detail and makes sure I understand it when I'm confused. She also sends me practice questions and a link to review materials, and even made me a study plan that I can use. She's fantastic and I'll be using her for other subjects too!!

Daiyu, 2 lessons with Sophie

Excellent SAT tutor

Sophie patiently walked me through my weak areas on my most recent SAT, helped me feel more confident about solving problems on the exam by explaining each step clearly, and had prepared a study guide for me ahead of time with SAT math prep resources. I can't believe the difference just one session made and will be scheduling several more before my next exam! Thank you for helping me so much! Wonderful Tutor!

Kevin, 4 lessons with Sophie

FAVORITE biology tutor

Sophie B. was so sweet and encouraging when I was struggling with the material!! I have ADHD and it can be hard for me to focus but she was super patient and made me feel so much better about my AP biology exam. She even stayed for extra time when I got confused about a new topic. Hiring her for more sessions!!
