I offer quality test prep, proofreading, college essay support, and tutoring in all humanities subjects. I am an experienced educator with a degree in history and a masters degree in teaching. I have been a classroom teacher for five years and have been tutoring students after school for the same amount of time. I have wanted to be a teacher since I was six years old - it is my passion and there is nothing else I would rather do! I first tutored my classmates when I was in high school. I have taught AP and non-AP classes covering a wide range of subjects such as AP United States Government and Politics, AP United States History, English, World History, and more! In my free time, I love exercising, rock climbing, and painting.

As a full-time teacher, I created a "study tables" program and tutored students after school. For students who attended my after-school tutoring, there was an increase in grades for 100% of students. I have also supported hundreds of students in writing and editing their college essays. I have had students go onto a wide range of careers, trade schools, and universities such as Stanford and NYU.

I have tutored and worked with hundreds of students and have seen firsthand how every single person is capable of success with the right support. Contact me so we can work on a personalized plan to help you achieve your goals!

Great Tutor!

Colin was so helpful in proofreading my work and improving my understanding of government. I needed a quick fast-paced review of the AP curriculum and proofreading of my essay. He was kind and clearly knows the content well. My essay looks so much better and I am excited to work with him more in the future.
