I took graduate English classes at Case Western Reserve University during my tenure at university libraries. With a background as an academically trained actor, playwright, and published author writing under the nom de plume of Ian Bar, I bring an energetic and proactive approach that engages audiences and readers. As an instructor for English composition at the college level, I have a proven record for providing student success along with the highest performance evaluations for teaching before a classroom.
My teaching experience includes grammar, essay writing, logic, rhetoric, pronunciation, and fluency. Furthermore, I have instructed classroom and one-on-one sessions regarding information literacy, research, and various citation styles, including assisting with the preparation of master theses and PhD dissertations. With over a decade of assisting students for college entry testing, as well as serving as an online advocate and tutor for business, criminal justice, and history, my passion is ensuring students enhance their quality of communication and learning skills.
Emory University – B.A., Latin
I began tutoring professionally after entering college, spending one year as a language tutor for Emory University, then pursuing private tutoring. I have worked with students of all ages, from preschool to middle-aged, and in a variety of subjects. I have aided students in preparing for various standardized tests (from the ISEE to the ACT), school subjects, and languages. My students achieve high grades in their school subjects and do very well on standardized tests.
I possess a wealth of knowledge in various areas, but one of the things that I find fun about learning is seeing how subjects connect to the real world. My students find learning and their subject matters a lot more interesting when I start pointing out these connections to them. By nature, I am a very personable and patient and I can work with any kind of student. As such, students really enjoy tutoring sessions with me.

Hi, I’m Chloe! I have been tutoring for four years now and it is something I am truly passionate about. I enjoy learning about my students just as much as I enjoy helping them succeed. It is important for me to learn how to adapt to the student’s personal learning style so that I can better serve them as we progress together. I do not usually take the traditional testing approach when gauging where a student is with the material they are trying to either learn or brush up on. However, I like to have my students apply the knowledge they’ve learned by completing diagrams and projects, participating in academic conversations, and teaching the information back to me. I find that when one is able to teach an idea, they’ve really understood the idea. I always encourage my students to figure out different ways of understanding an idea because it challenges the student to think critically and analyze fully what they are learning. I also tend to relate the material to the students hobbies or favorites because I find that it really grabs the student’s attention. I would consider myself a great tutor because when I tutor, it’s not just a lecture, it is an experience. Every session I conduct is different because I understand that every student has different needs and they learn at different paces. Student success and growth is of the most importance to me and my adaptability certainly helps me aid students become successful.

Emory University – B.S. in Applied Mathematics, Environmental Sciences (2021)
Hello! My name is Megan, and I’m currently a senior at Emory University studying Applied Mathematics and Environmental Sciences. I have been tutoring for 7 years; I started as a freshman in high school tutoring my peers in math. Since then, I have worked with elementary through high school students in math and science, including algebra, geometry, biology, and physics. My favorite class is calculus! I love working with students through challenging problems to re-envision the concepts. I use a scaffolding process and emphasize understanding of the principles because topics only build on each other. I get to know students’ interests and strengths, and adapt to their personal learning style. I’m passionate about ensuring students feel more confident in their classes and hope to watch them thrive academically.
