Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Test prep tutors in Irving, TX
" I worked for The University of Chicago Center for Urban School Improvement – an initiative of the university to bolster education in some of the city’s lowest achieving schools. During the school day I served as a Literacy Tutor for students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. I also provided homework help and math and literacy tutoring for K-8 students in an after-school program. At the conclusion of the school year, I was part of a team of two tutors whose students demonstrated the most improvement of all the students in the program, and I was selected to attend the Leadership Training Seminar by the Illinois Commission on Volunteerism ...

"At first i joined Number Sense which really improved my skills at mental math, and was then recruited by Mathematics which really tested my problem-solving skills. I've been tutoring math anywhere from Algebra to Calculus since 2008 through the Academic Bridge Program (ABP) as well as private one-on-one sessions. Mathematics to me is like a puzzle that consists of pieces and directions on how to solve it. Through many years of experience I have developed the utmost confidence that I can find your missing piece(s) of the puzzle and find the right direction for you to be successful, all the while sharing my passion for math.." ...

"Many times the reason for an outburst in class or confusion about an assignment is an underlying need for help or an issue. This may be the minor need of extra practice on two digit multiplying, or the “why” of fractions. As a teacher, wife, sister, friend, aunt, daughter, and student, I have learned that you need to back up and figure out the cause of the problem. Alleviating the minor needs can prevent major needs and gaps down the road."

" In college as well, by the time I was a senior, and was principal trumpet in the NYU Symphony Orchestra, I ended up mentoring some underclassmen and provided some private lessons. As far as SAT prep tutoring goes, math is my specialty. I've always loved the process of problem solving, acting like a detective who is trying to solve a mystery. I think what has made me an effective tutor in the past is helping my students to learn not only how to solve a problem, by why the problem is solved that way."

"I love working with students of all ages. I've taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 7th grade science,and K-6th math. Much of my time in public schools was spent as a specialist in gifted education. I'm particularly fond of gifted students who have learning differences that are not easily addressed in a traditional classroom."

" As a tutor, I’ve had the pleasure of helping students of all ages understand their subjects better, while reducing the expense of time spent on trying to understand something for the first time. As the son of a professional science and math teacher, I had the benefit of hearing mathematical scientific explanations years before experiencing them in the classroom. I also had constant access to someone who could take the time to explain their meanings to me, and I know what a tremendous benefit that sort of access gives. I take great pleasure in helping others to learn and be successful. On a personal note, I enjoy reading, studying science and ...

" I have taken every type of class imaginable because I never could decide what subject I loved more. That's why it took me so long to decide on a major! In all my difficult classes where teacher instruction has fallen short, I've just taught the material to myself from the text. I love problem-solving and figuring out complex theories and ideas. I am a people pleaser, a quick learner, and a hard worker."

"In 2009, I graduated from Northwestern University with a double major in Economics and International Relations and a minor in Political Science, and next year I will be attending Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. I’m very strong and experienced test-taker (my GMAT score is 740) and I feel confident that I can help students reach their target score by helping them gain deeper understanding of the concepts, provide them with test-taking strategies, and even helping them overcome their test-taking anxiety. ."

"I enjoy working with students of all ages, which is why I offer tutoring in subjects from elementary school to middle school math including algebra to reading skills for all ages in addition to the statistics, psychology, and basic biology. I believe in a more interactive approach, letting the student have a hand in guiding the sessions. I feel that it is always best to come from a position of building on the strengths a student offers. Many of the students who I have tutored know more than they believe."

"My first opportunity to tutor other students came in high school when I was a volunteer for the school Math Club and I loved it immediately! Since then I have tutored students ranging from middle school to adults in subjects such as math, English, science, and test prep and the satisfaction gained from seeing students progress from confusion to understanding never gets old. In my free time, I like to think of myself as an explorer who loves to travel, hike, camp, or simply wander around an unexplored neighborhood. I also enjoy playing basketball, swimming, and cooking (and eating of course!).." ...
