Hear from SidhiSidhi was born in Brookfield, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee. She was named a National Merit Finalist and National AP Scholar in high school and won the Cardinal Stritch piano festival as well as the Civic Music Association scholarship her senior year. A Classical Studies fanatic, Sidhi took first place in the Academic Decathlon and was named MVP of a Latin-based quiz bowl competition at the National Latin Convention. She went on to concentrate in Neuroscience at Brown University, where she was later inducted into the Sigma Xi honor society. Her first summer of college, Sidhi became a branch manager for Ivy Insiders, a program which allowed students to set up their own mini-tutoring companies. She was ecstatic to witness her help result in an average ACT score boost of 6 points for her students. Later in college, she also tutored for BRYTE, a student-led program which pairs undergraduate tutors with refugees from Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. While she is currently pursuing a film career in both acting and production in Los Angeles, Sidhi is excited to keep tutoring students to beat standardized tests!
Sidhi was very knowledgeable and even provided some of her own outside information when teaching us the roots of words and their meanings.
I loved her!
Sidhi was awesome - she presented everything in a way that made it easily learnable. I loved her! I feel so lucky to have gotten her, she was a huge blessing.

Hear from MikeBorn and educated in Southern California, Mike Ventri graduated cum laude from Servite High School Honors Program, receiving the Bausch and Lomb Science Award (and accompanying scholarship) for the top science student. In addition, he received the top scores in the school on a competitive math exam. Favoring a broad-spectrum education, Mike went on to earn Bachelor Degrees in both Physics and Biology, graduating just a few classes shy of a third Bachelor's in Mathematics. He also completed the pre-med coursework and testing requirements for entering medical school.
In addition to the hard-science and math education, Mike completed numerous units in other academic fields, including psychology, history, geology, philosophy, music, dance, physical education, art, and computer science. This eclectic background served him well in relating to students with differing backgrounds in the variety of teaching environments he has encountered.
Traveling, outdoor activities, music, dance, and learning have always been his passions.
Real reviewsI'm very lucky to have had him as my mentor

Hear from ReillyReilly received her Bachelor’s degree with honors in Africana Studies and History from Bowdoin College in 2013. As a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow she spent the summer of 2012 conducting independent research on racial identity formation in Lima and Cuzco, Peru. That same summer she also traveled to Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa to research prison literature during apartheid in South Africa. Her honors thesis, completed Spring 2013, ultimately looked specifically at prison literature produced through a program of higher education within San Quentin State Prison. Her goal was to define the conventions of the New Prison Literature produced within the past two decades, and the contemporary “incarcerated experience” as a subject position that intersects with race, class, gender, and sexuality. In addition to her written thesis Reilly also produced and performed in a live show that integrated the original poetry of incarcerated people, dance, and live music. Reilly is currently pursuing a career in the performance arts.
