Andrew ...I went on to the University of Iowa College of Law, where I served on the Iowa Law Review, and I graduated in 2013 with a Juris Doctor. I received a 169 on my LSAT (97th percentile), and I have performed equally well on the ACT, SAT, and on numerous Advanced Placement exams. My areas of expertise are in LSAT preparation, Government, Political Science, English, and History. I hope to meet you soon!... I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all philosophy for students. I think each student needs a specialized plan, depending on their ability, motivation, and preferred method of learning. I try to develop such a plan for each student I teach.

Adam ...real world. It's boring and UNPRODUCTIVE for everyone involved. What I want to impart is the ability to practice a sort of “meta cognition.” I want to suggest to that what we call thought typically follows the same procedure as filling in that equation. Real deliberative, reflexive thought takes place BEHIND the number crunching.

Timothy ...and tutor for over five years. I specialize in areas of transition from high school to college, such as math, research, and writing, as well as college test prep (ACT/SAT and Application Essays), but I also have experience in more specific areas as well.
