"I am a current undergraduate at Harvard University studying government, education, and Spanish. I have tutored middle school and high school students in the past, mainly being SAT tutoring and saxophone lessons, in addition to reading and writing help. I have taken the SAT three times pre-college and scored within the 98th-99th percentile each time.

I love tutoring because I enjoy watching students transform during tutoring sessions. I enjoy witnessing students realize their full potential, realize that they really can do it and realize that they can do nearly anything they put their minds to. It's important to me to tailor each tutoring experience to the student's needs, if something isn't working, we change it.

I graduated high school as valedictorian with all of my classes being English based. I received a 5 on the AP English and Literature Composition exam as well as A's in all of my honors English classes. As previously stated, I took the SAT three times, and each time I scored within the 99th percentile for reading and writing. I have competed at State's for the FFA Prepared Public Speaking contest (twice) and won--at the state level--the VFW Voice of Democracy speech writing contest.

I have been playing the saxophone for eight years now and am classically trained with a bit of jazz training. I am extremely passionate about music, saxophone in particular. I have competed at the State level with my saxophone four times and have made it into the All-State Bands three times. I have played in countless paid gigs, including musicals as a pit orchestra musician. I have taught saxophone lessons to nearly all ages and am comfortable continuing to do so. I was accepted into the University of Michigan's College of Music to play the saxophone for a career, however, I ultimately decided on attending Harvard.

Tutoring is a two-person commitment. I promise I will do everything in my power to teach my students in a way that works for them and is showing results, so long as my students promise to give 100%" less...
