Dr Joseph Kay is a tutor and researcher, formerly working as a tutor for undergraduate students at the University of Oxford, where he was awarded a DPhil in Music in 2019. Passionate about enabling students to realise their full potential, he likes teaching that is adaptive, responding to the individual needs of each of his students and tailoring every lesson accordingly. Allied with this is his firm belief that showing is a more valuable teaching approach than telling; a student will learn better, and remember what they have learnt for longer, if they are given the space to find out answers for themselves. Not only is this exploratory approach a much better strategy for learning, it’s also much more fun!
Joseph worked as a tutor at the University of Oxford for three years, specialising in music history, the philosophy and sociology of music, composition, and essay writing and study skills. Since 2013 he has also been involved in the admissions process at Oxford University’s Faculty of Music, acting as the central marker for performance auditions and composition submissions. Alongside his university teaching, Joseph has also taught a number of students privately in Oxford and London, and has mentored in numerous outreach projects and courses.

Hi, I'm Miles! I graduated cum laude from Harvard College with a degree in English. In the course of writing everything from travel guidebooks to poetry to political campaign statements to PR copy, I've come to understand the drafting and editing process intimately. I'd like not just to help you cross T's and dot i's, but to be your human vision board -- helping you craft unique approaches to make you and your writing stand out. Whether you're getting ready to apply to college, need a second set of eyes on your paper, or would like some extra help with a tricky project, I'm glad to lend my expertise.
I've been lucky to get to lead workshops, work with doctoral students on their dissertations, and assist high schoolers with their college applications. I know the SAT and AP tests inside and out and am a seasoned and confident test-taker. In high school, I was chosen as a national student poet by the Library of Congress and traveled around the country advocating for creative writing and teaching workshops (and got to meet President Obama!). Now I live in New York City, where I play music, write, hike, travel, and cook.
I love getting to know students and finding out what makes them tick--it’s the most rewarding part of being a tutor. No two students are the same, and I want us to find what works for you. When we meet, I’ll get to know you--your areas of interest and skill level, how you like to learn, and what you’re hoping to get out of our time. From there we can develop a learning plan to help you grow your confidence and skills.
My specialties: Essay editing, proofreading, test prep, creative writing, English & American literature, history, social studies, grammar, reading.
Can’t wait to get to know you!
Please note that I reserve the right to charge for up to the original length of the lesson in the event of a no-show or last-minute cancellation.

I have a Masters in Physics from the University of St Andrews (1st class honours, graduated in 2018), specialising in the education of physics, and as an undergraduate helped teach in schools. I then completed a second Masters in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge (1st class honours, graduated 2020), so I'm skilled in teaching, communicating and understanding the context of both science and history beyond the lab.
I love to help others understand more about the subjects I care about, and to improve their skills and knowledge, whether that's through tackling problems, developing writing skills, or through discussing and being inspired by the weird and wonderful stuff that we know about our world and the universe.
I work to tailor each lesson to the individual that I'm teaching. For example, having been through many exam periods myself I understand the stress and pressure that students are under at such times, and can work closely with the exam syllabus to ensure that my students are as well prepared as they can be! Other students might be looking for a more general knowledge of the subject (perhaps exams aren't immediately on the horizon). In that case, I'm happy to provide more of a broad overview to try to explore why these subjects matter, to try to encourage students to develop, or reinforce, a passion for learning that can be beneficial in university applications or beyond

I am in my final year of study at Yale University, where I am double majoring in History and Economics. I have tutored for the past 6 years, and have worked with students on Maths, Economics, Physics, History and English: I'm very comfortable tutoring in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and STEM fields. I have also prepared students for the SAT and helped them write their college application essays.
Tutoring allows me not only to help students achieve their academic goals, but also make them more confident and comfortable in their academic careers.
Feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions!

Hello! My name is Rachel, and I am a Masters student in archaeology at the University of Toronto. I am very passionate about tutoring, and I have over five years of tutoring experience, in English, History, Writing, and SAT and GRE prep. My favourite part about tutoring is generating an excitement for the subjects and tasks on hand, and learning from my students, too. What I am best at as a tutor helping students find new ways of thinking through problems or area of difficulty for them, and seeing their progress.
