"Additionally, I've spent over one year as a tutor at the tutoring center at Loyola University Chicago. I enjoy tutoring one-on-one much more than group instructing.

"I believe that hard work and determination can lead to great outcomes, but some students also need to learn how to study. Many test-takers get bogged down in the details and try to memorize every little factoid, making complex subjects unmanageable. I like to break down each subject and consider how each subtopic can be tested. I also prefer focusing on learning concepts, rather than memorizing facts."
