Award-Winning SAT Tutors in Prince George's County, MD
Carl "...In addition, I have taught computer literacy, photography, and have done corporate training in various technical fields. My teaching style is a system of scaffolding. I ensure that the student has a solid knowledge base and we build from there with a specific goal in mind, whether it is to prepare for a standardized test or an academic one, or simply to get a better handle on a topic. One area in which I excel is crafting customized solutions for individual students. Each student is different and has his or her own unique needs and strengths. Having a set curriculum is helpful, but having one-on-one tutoring allows students to get individualized attention in the particular areas they need help with. My degree is in English with a concentration in writing and editing, but I am equally good with many math subjects, especially for the various standardized tests..."

Sarah "...I enjoy working one-on-one with students, developing a connection with them and encouraging them to be the best they can be. My most commonly tutored subject is math, particularly Algebra 1. I have been tutoring math consistently during the school year for the past two years; my work has encompassed both homework coaching and exam review. So much of grade school math is learning to see connections between concepts and build on earlier work. When I help students with math, I guide them towards making connections and ensure that they understand how concepts are interrelated - the Pythagorean theorem and the distance formula, for instance. I believe that the best way to make sure a student remembers a theorem or formula is to teach them how and why it works..."
Julia "...I have a strong science background, having earned a 4.0 in my major, and am able to help with all ranges of Biology, Chemistry, and Organic chemistry. I am also available for SAT prep, college entrance essays, and other writing and editing needs. During my college career, I tutored both high school and college-age students. I received positive feedback from both my students, who enjoyed my interactive tutoring approach, and my supervisors, who applauded the emphasis I placed on study methods and test-taking strategies..."

Laura "I have nearly three years of tutoring experience, predominantly as a Math and Science tutor in most K-12 subjects, SSAT and SAT I & II Prep, as well as in College Level Organic and General Chemistry. Working with students and helping them succeed and overcome challenges is a very rewarding experience. I believe learning can be a fun process, and that hard work, dedication, and inspiration can make a huge difference in a student's life. My goal as a tutor is to give my students the ability to feel empowered and happy in their learning.."
Nora "... However, I also enjoy math; a geek to the core, I sometimes work Algebra equations or calculate the angles in a regular shape just to keep my skills in shapes. I can comfortably provide tutoring in Algebra and/or Geometry as well as time-saving strategies for the math sections of standardized tests. In my off-hours, I indulge in a wide range of interests and hobbies. Since I was ten years old, crafts have held a special place in my heart; embroidery, crochet, and wire-and-bead jewelry claim most of my crafting time, and I design Celtic knotwork-inspired cross-stitched bookmarks. I've enjoyed gardening for nearly as long as crafting, and I love nurturing a vegetable or herb plant from seed to harvest..."
West "I tutored at a writing center while an undergraduate student, and became an Advanced Certified Tutor through the College Reading and Learning Association.

I enjoy tutoring because of the opportunity it presents to constantly adapt lessons and teaching styles to best meet the needs of individual students. . . . . . . . . . . ."
