Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT Verbal tutors in Clayton, MO
"I enjoy working with students to break down problems so that they can understand the process rather than just the solution. When I was in school, I benefited from one-on-one tutoring, so I understand the importance of shaping tutoring style and pacing to individual students.

" The student then follows that by rote, gets the desired result, but has not actually synthesized the knowledge. That was something that I struggled with throughout my degrees, till I found ways to take the information provided by my teachers and turn it around/rephrase it till it worked for me. I have since worked on applying this skill to the things that have come naturally to me so that I am more able to explain them: in helping my younger siblings with math or writing, I've learned it's not enough just to tell someone how to do something. It is my goal in any tutoring/teaching session to get a student to understand WHY something is done, and how ...

"I recently moved from DC to Saint Louis and am excited to start tutoring. Originally from Cut Off, Louisiana, I grew up in a bilingual community.

"While this image has been sadly true for many students, my own experience of learning math as I grew up was quite the opposite, and it is that opposite experience which inspired me to go into education. In middle and high school, I was fortunate enough to have educators who taught math not as a regimen of drills and memorization, but as a process of thinking logically. They taught not exclusively through by-the-book lectures, but through anecdotes and idiosyncratic metaphors which may have amused my classmates and I, but also aided our memories and our reasoning skills. Through high school and college, even while completing two unrelated ...

"For ten years I taught career and technical education courses at the high school level. I have also worked as a homebound teacher and substitute teacher in varying subjects. I have high expectations for student achievement and stress that school is a place for learning.

Students are encouraged to express their knowledge in a variety of ways, which encompass all learning styles."
