Carefully selected, highly-credentialed PSAT tutors in Oro Valley, AZ
" 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. As a writing instructor, I approach every student with the attitude that writing is something everyone can do effectively. Likewise, I believe that learning and test taking do not have to be intimidating."

"I believe I have a talent for communicating ideas and information in various ways to help others learn. I recognized this skill in my junior year of college, when I took non-traditional organic chemistry. This course differed from standard organic chemistry classes in that it was based on small (4-person) groups of students who taught each other the science that they needed to know, with lectures given only once a week. For both semesters, I led my group, initiating discussions and figuring out answers to others' questions."

"I also spent a summer teaching physical science at the high school level as a volunteer in Kenya … without electricity or textbooks. As an experienced writer and editor, I can help with essays, personal statements, writing technique and mechanics, as well as reading/study skills. I truly believe that every student can become a good writer with individual attention and encouragement. In school I was (and still am) a bookworm, and one who sincerely enjoys helping others to grow in knowledge.

"I have worked as an ACT preparation instructor for the Tucson GEAR Up Project, which is a college readiness program for high school students in the Tucson community. As an ACT prep instructor, I helped high school students prepare for the ACT college entrance exam by leading workshops in order to provide them with strategies and practice to succeed on the test.

"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 five books for Duke University Press, and I have also taught college. My students find me friendly and approachable, and I love teaching. My undergraduate degree is in classics (Harvard), for which I wrote an honors thesis on the Odyssey of Homer." ...

"Teaching and education is something that I consider extremely important. It is because of a few good teachers that I am where I am today. As a graduate student at the U of A, I have taught a number of different chemistry labs ranging from general chemistry to senior level physical chemistry. I put a lot of work into my teaching because I believe that a good teacher makes a huge difference in how people learn."

"This extended into high school where I excelled in my English classes, notably in AP English Language and Composition and AP English Literature. I scored 740 and 800 on my SAT Writing and Reading sections, respectively, and also took the SAT Subject Test for Literature and earned a 750. Being still in school myself, I can easily connect to students of all ages struggling with the stress of academics. I am willing and capable to assist with a range of tutoring angles, from specific SAT Prep and literature analysis to editing and breaking down a paper topic with a student. For any brand new readers, I am also very comfortable with young children ...

"I solve complex problems by breaking them down into small steps which is how I teach my students to solve problems. If I can help a student get a few steps into the problem, they usually began to see the correct direction and are able to find the path to the answer. Challenging my students to think for themselves, asking intentional questions and offering helpful advice and encouragement are what make me a great tutor.-."
