" Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT. My teaching style is highly customized to the student(s) I'm working with: my main goal is always to make him or her feel as comfortable as possible.

I love to work with students on college essays, other applications, and general writing skills - this past year, one of my students with whom I worked on a college essay was accepted to every school to which he applied, and I work to achieve that goal with all of my students! I'm also experienced in Verbal and Writing test prep, particularly for the SAT, and find great satisfaction in watching my students' scores steadily improve.

This background enables me to provide instructive, substantive lessons, and to understand and draw upon each student's needs and potentialities, to unlock his or her academic potential. In addition to subject knowledge, effective self-expression (written and oral), and reasoned analysis of well-chosen evidence, I also encourage students to develop a genuine interest in the subject, by showing them how historical study may touch on today's most pressing issues, and on their own personal lives. The skills gained along the way--expository writing, public speaking, and critical ...
