Josh Pollock has been offering test prep for the ACT, SAT, GRE, and a host of other standardized tests since 2012. He has helped a wide range of students maximize their score potential, including those working with test anxiety and learning differences. In addition to test prep, Josh tutors in reading and writing and English Language Arts and Literature, including AP English and IB English courses and exams. Josh graduated magna cum laude from Wesleyan University in Connecticut and earned his masters degree in classroom instruction and curriculum design for English Language Arts from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He taught high school Humanities in the Denver Public School system for several years and before that worked in the writing lab at Wesleyan University, coaching undergraduate, graduate, and ESL students on a wide variety of academic writing. Outside of the classroom, Josh worked as an editor of a newswire, a communications officer and media contact for various nonprofit organizations, and a report writer for ecological field research and conservation planning documents.

My goal is to improve a student’s performance in and outside the classroom. To achieve the goal, focus is placed on boosting executive functioning, organizational skills, and learning how to “play the game” of school and life. Students will learn to create the routines they need for academic success and they will be tutored in individual subjects. Communication will continue between sessions to encourage improvement, further growth and create accountability.
Bonnie is a college essay expert and writing professor (Colorado).
Everyone has a story, a passion waiting to be uncovered. For some, the topic is obvious. For most, however, the story begging to be told is hiding layers deep. Giving voice to your viewpoint through personal storytelling provides a powerful lens through which to address the college essay.
Through a series of one-on-one coaching sessions, Daphne uses exercises and dialogue to help uncover the story that best illustrates your student's talents and voice. The right words allow them to confidently represent themselves to the world.
Daphne specializes in guiding people to identify and clearly articulate their unique perspective. her ability to authentically communicate with teenagers creates an environment in which even the most reticent teens share with confidence. Together they'll identify the best anecdote to use as a framework, crafting an essay that accurately showcases the experiences and skills that have honed your student's specific point of view.
