EducationB.A. Humanities, Philosophy, and Liberal Arts at Vassar College
Graduated with Honors
GPA 3.76 out of 4.0
ExperienceMy name is Gus and I'm a recent graduate of Vassar College. One of the aspects I loved most about Vassar was the one-on-one attention I received from my professors and teachers. I would like to pass the spirit of a liberal arts education to my students by challenging them to think critically and expand their minds.
The main subjects I am qualified to tutor are Philosophy, English Literature and Composition, Government & Politics, and History.
I have developed effective and critical writing skills in all my coursework in college. I can teach my students how to write an persuasive and well-structured essay. Last semester, I wrote a 50 page thesis on photography in New York City.
I would also like to help High School students apply for college. I am knowledgeable about the many types of universities and the academic/social cultures that fit different types of people. I remember choosing between Vassar, NYU, UCLA, and UC Berkeley when I received all my acceptance letters. I can help your student choose colleges, think about what they want to study, and write an effective, meaningful personal essay.
I am also a singer and an actor. I was in the Ragazzi Boys Chorus in the San Francisco Bay Area from ages 7-18, where I learned discipline, musicianship, and how to work in groups. I continued to sing in college by taking individual voice lessons. Classical music and musical theater are my strengths. I can teach voice and singing skills, as well as basic music theory. I have also acted in many plays and can coach students with monologues and scenes. I am a graduate of the American Conservatory Theater's Summer Training Congress. I also studied Drama at Vassar briefly and took courses in dramatic literature, acting, movement for actors.
