Aaron is a rising junior at Yale University, and a double major in environmental studies and global affairs. He has been awarded summer fellowships from both programs and has used them to travel to Siberia, where he worked with a Russian NGO on conservation and wilderness preservation, and to Washington, where he was an intern at a foreign policy think tank. Aaron has extensive experience with standardized testing, scoring a perfect 2400 on the SAT. In his spare time Aaron enjoys writing, hiking, and singing a cappella.
Looking for a non-judgmental, genuine, fun tutor to help you exceed expectations and achieve your goals? Look no further! I graduated as the valedictorian in my high school class of over 500 students, and received a perfect 2400 on my SAT. I will be a junior at Harvard University, studying Psychology and Computer Science, and spent this summer working at a mental health tech start-up in San Francisco. I am also writing a book with my professor called Straight A's: The Identity Politics of Asian American Academic Achievement, which presents the diverse stories and experiences of Asian Americans at Harvard.
I graduated from Harvard in 2014, doing a combined concentration in Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry and Physics. While at Harvard I performed research in both biochemistry and physics, and my thesis on Nanoscale MRI received highest honors. I also taught upper level physics courses for 2 years, work for which I earned the Derek Bok Teaching Award. Upon graduation I was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to go to Germany, where I spent a year researching techniques for biosensing using optical fiber-based microcavities. This year I'm starting my PhD at MIT, where I'll be working on advanced photonic circuits for use in quantum communication protocols.
Isabel Lee is a junior studying Statistics at Harvard College. She has a lot of experience with standardized test taking, receiving a high SAT score with perfect scores in Math and Reading, as well as perfect scores on all 6 of the APs she took. At Harvard, Isabel has tutored for the Bureau of Study Counsel and serves as captain of the Harvard Cheerleading team. She is also involved in Harvard Ventures and Smart Women Securities on campus. In her free time, Isabel likes to play guitar, dance, and food hunt.
It all started in first grade when I won a spontaneous debate with a class bully over why 0+0 equaled 0 not 1. Since that “tutoring” experience, I have tutored over 20 students, more than a dozen of whom are high schoolers from remedial to honors level classes taking Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calc and Calculus I (AB Calc) as well as Conceptual Physics and Physics with Calculus. Additionally, I was the founder and president of my high school Math Club, and I was also a varsity member and top scorer of our Math Team. In addition to math and physics related pursuits, I was Class President for 10th and 11th grade, and I have been playing flute for 14 years.
Taylor Kay Phillips graduated from Harvard with honors in 2015 with a degree in English and a secondary in Dramatic Arts. While at Harvard, she was a tutor, curriculum developer, and teaching trainer for HSA tutoring. Taylor got a perfect score on her SAT and scored in the 99th percentile of both her SATIIs - but her proudest high-school academic achievement was getting a 5 on the AP US Government exam and writing all of her essays in rhyme. Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Taylor just moved to New York to pursue her dream of being a comedy writer/performer but will also have a day job as Creative Strategist for an advertising agency (her parents are very proud of this and tell all of their friends at dinner parties).
Hi! I'm Michael. As a current freshman at Harvard studying economics and neuroscience, I can’t wait to be part of the Tiger Cub Tutoring team. When I am not tutoring, I can be found creating phone applications with my digital app company, Blueout (blueout.co); writing and publishing articles for my magazine company, Textploit (textploit.com); or planning philanthropic international trips with my non-profit, Hugs for Ghana (HugsForGhana.org). One interesting fact about me is that I’ve never gotten less than a perfect math score on any standardized test. I am a Jackie Robinson Scholar, National Achievement Scholar, Coca-cola Scholar, AP Scholar, and (hopefully) your tutor!
Hello! I am a junior at Harvard College pursuing a joint concentration in Physics and Astrophysics and a secondary in the Classics. I love to talk about physics, ancient history, and using the tools of math to describe nature. My experience with research and public outreach in astronomy has given me lots of practice at explaining concepts in science. I know a little bit too much about the college admissions process and am excited to share what I've learned with you! At college, I dance with the Harvard Radcliffe Modern Dance Company and participate in the Harvard Public Opinion Project, a student-run poll of young Americans. I enjoy using telescopes, identifying plants, and drinking coffee! I look forward to working with you.
Petey graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College, where he studied English and art history, wrote a thesis about French illustrations of Edgar Allan Poe’s work, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. In his spare time, he DJ’d for Harvard’s radio station and wrote for The Harvard Crimson and the Hasty Pudding Theatricals. After stints working for Let’s Go Travel Guides and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, he’s pursuing a career in writing and trying not to binge on Scandinavian crime novels
