Mr. Independent Tutor

About Me:

I am an educator, but a sharky one. I work as an independent tutor – not for any school or educational system. Frankly, I can’t deal with the bullshit that regular teachers do. I love watching my students grow and mature. After nearly a decade of helping students on various standardized tests and their courses, I’m ready to grow myself.

Let’s be clear I’m not some aimless twat – just someone who recognizes I need to know more.

I think you have a lot of unique strengths in your profile – differentiated work experience as an educator and semiconductor process engineer (congrats on the 3 patents!), robust academic track record (GPA and GMAT), and community leadership as a youth soccer coach. I appreciate that you want to go to business school to grow. MIT Sloan would be the perfect school for you as it’s one of the few top schools that recognizes that “career goals” for MBA students can and do change.

    Hello Mr. Independent Tutor, this is Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions. As a former adcom for MIT Sloan I see some interesting nuggets in your post but a lot of holes. While your GPA and GMAT are in the range for Sloan and your patents will show innovation and success, you will need to show your schools- not just Sloan- a lot more. I realize you don’t have much of space here but I would want to know details about your tutoring company; schools will dig into your business plan, customer acquisition strategy, revenues etc. Ditto with your community work- as a soccer mom myself I love your coaching volunteer work as well as your interest in helping kids in the …
