Experienced recent Yale grad offering college application essay writing in New York.

Methodology

My teaching approach varies from student to student. I view tutoring as a highly collaborative process, so I tailor the structure of my teaching to each individual student based on their unique learning style, primary goals, growth areas, and needs.

Background

My name is Alex Zafran and I received a degree in American Studies with distinction in the major from Yale May 2019. My strong writing, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills empower me to help students achieve success in this unprecedented moment in education.

My background as a liberal arts major, in combination with my professional experiences in the communications industry, serve me well in college prep work (including test prep and essay writing), as well as English, literature, and history tutoring.

While I don’t have professional tutoring experience, I grew up helping my three younger siblings in school and coached them through their college admission processes. In addition to working with my siblings, I’ve helped a number of family friends navigate college admissions and edited their essays as well. I’ve also supported students in a variety of other capacities, including working with students as a water polo coach, high school peer advisor, and collegiate backpacking orientation trip leader -- a role which extended into mentorship and support throughout the entirety of the year.
