"Investing a lot of time studying and reviewing these tests makes me very familiar with them and I understand the strategies required to excel on them. I can also tutor a broad range of classes from elementary and high-school level classes to any of the required pre-business courses at the University of Arizona. I have found that I am quite passionate about teaching and helping others succeed. Much of my strength as a tutor comes from patience and allowing the student to find the answer on his own and not just handing it to him/her." ...

"I’m currently working on my thesis for an M.F.A. in nonfiction writing at Columbia University, but I started off as a field biologist, studying birds in Alaska. As a tutor, I draw on a wide range of tools, from organizational and time-management skills to interpersonal finesse and a strong knowledge base in English, writing, science, and high-school-level math. To my early education and five years working in the field of biology I have added years of work as an editor and writer."

"This is true both of the college students and of the high- and middle-schoolers I have taught. When I ran the test-prep program in Missouri, numerous students experienced high levels of success in improving not only their test scores, but also the skills these tests measure. I taught students who started at 25 on the ACT and ended up at 34, but at least as satisfying were those students who started at 14 and eventually achieved 19. More important than such external measurements, however, is the individual student's knowledge that he or she has come into possession of, and internalized, a set of tools useful for further learning. I've edited ...

"As a longtime Tucson native, I decided to come back home to Tucson after graduation and am currently in the process of applying to medical schools. Having taken several standardized tests throughout the years, including the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, and a variety of different courses as an Economics major, pre-medicine student, I feel I can help in many different subject areas. I've served in a variety of tutoring roles over the years, but the one I am most proud of was when I helped a 9th grader in algebra a few years ago. As I worked with him throughout the semester, I was able to raise his grade from an "F" to a "B" by the end of the ...
