During the school year, I play volleyball and partake in numerous extracurricular activities such as DECA (a competitive business club), Rotary, and Scholastic Bowl. Finally, I'm extremely passionate about helping others succeed on standardized tests."

"I tutor all subjects on the ACT. Outside of school, I swim, lifeguard, and teach swimming lessons. I love teaching!"

Josh Gross


"I really enjoy tutoring because I like explaining the "why" aspect of questions, and meeting people of other ages and cultures. My favorite section to tutor is Math, but I'm happy to help with anything you need! This subject tends to have really interesting answers, and "discovering" them is a great way to learn the material. I love playing the saxophone, and I participate in the Jazz Ensemble, Marching Giants, HPHS Wind Symphony, Pit Orchestra, STUNTS, and Pep band. I'm also a proud member of the HPHS Science Olympiad team. "

Allyson Gordon

"Hi! I'm a long time player of the violin and am a runner on the XC and track teams. I'm a member of Highland Park's Model UN team and that has sparked my interest in social justice. This summer I'm working as a wilderness trip leader and spent some time hiking in the Porcupine Mountains! I tutor all subjects and can't wait to help you out."
