Award-Winning SAT Tutors in Prince George's County, MD
Carl "My teaching and tutoring experience includes test preparation for the SAT, PSAT, ACT, SSAT, and other exams, covering all subjects. 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..."
Eleanor "... I have an undergraduate degree in Biology and a law degree focused on environmental law. I have tutored students for the Bar exam, including many who had previously failed, and developed many strategies to help my students gain a better understanding of the materials and the test itself. I really enjoy helping students assess their strengths and weaknesses, improve their performance, and gain confidence that they can succeed at standardized tests..."
Nora "... In addition to offering my students strategies for retaining information, I am committed to helping them understand material by helping them see how new information connects with their previous knowledge or with other subjects. As a former French teacher, language and literature are my particular strengths. I love helping students tackle and master vocabulary, reading, literature, and writing (in English or French). 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..."
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..."
