Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SSAT tutors
"I have a firm grasp on all subjects regarding Mathematics up to college level Calculus 2. As far as English is concerned, since my degree is both a science and humanities degree, I have mastered how to write persuasively, informatively, and creatively. Critical thinking skills and good reading comprehension, I believe, is crucial to succeeding in any English class or pass any sort of exam in English as well. These skills have been grossly ingrained within me, because of all of my humanities courses including but not limited to persuasive anthropology classes, writing seminars and the like." ...

"In addition while a calculus student in high school, I had the privilege of tutoring a few students in pre-calculus and Algebra and absolutely loved it! These students all ended the class with A's. On another note, as a future teacher myself, I hope to implement more effective teaching methods. As a student I struggled with the dull lecturing that most classes provided, so I would love to use more visual and handson techniques to explain the curriculum. In addition, I am very animated and friendly so I'm easy to trust and be comfortable around. In my free time, I love watching movies, shopping and reading." ...
