Award-Winning ISEE Tutors in Ypsilanti charter Township, MI
Katherine I have loved teaching for over 30 years, from elementary through college. I have tutored in many courses but focus a lot on helping with Math subjects. Whether non-motivated to extremely motivated, I enjoy working with all different types of students! I love to facilitate learning, start with success and build upon success. I believe I help students develop a "love of learning," rather than the "ol' grind of learning."... First session is the most important session. The student is judging me and sizing me up. I do a lot of "get to know you" while getting a "feel" for the tutoring subject.

Initially, I was hired by Kaplan Institute to teach ACT & SAT prep courses.

Lynda As an educator, I have had many experiences working with learners, from kindergarten through middle school. I enjoy the opportunity to promote learning while building confidence. All learners can make progress, that's the key to tutoring, providing the opportunity to feel successful. The reason I enjoy tutoring is that it establishes a special relationship between the tutor and the student that is much more difficult to cultivate in the classroom. ... When I work with students, I attempt to meet the student where they are in the learning process and celebrate learning as it takes place, step by step.

Eli I am a board-certified, licensed naturopathic doctor. Before becoming a doctor I spent several years tutoring and teaching. I have worked with students of all ages, from 3 year olds learning phonics to graduate students studying histology and physiology. I specialize in general sciences, medical sciences, reading comprehension, literary analysis, and composition. I love working with students of all ages and I love to teach.... I love teaching and I love working with kids. I understand that a good teacher needs to combine perception, patience, persistence, and respect. A gifted teacher discerns the uniqueness in each learner, and then tailors their lesson to that learner. I am able to recognize my students' learning needs, and I shape my language in a way that makes information more accessible and digestible. I believe passionately that education elevates both the student and the community, and I approach teaching with the seriousness and devotion that every learner deserves.
