Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Test prep tutors in Katy, TX
"At Learning Support Services, my employer, I provided weekly instruction to fellow UH undergraduates during the Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 academic semesters. The subjects I tutored ranged from college level science courses to advanced mathematics. In my opinion, the most rewarding aspect of tutoring is when I am able to convey a particularly challenging question to a student. I do this by approaching concepts from multiple perspectives and breaking things down into layman’s terms."

"I am very patient and creative with my students. If someone is unable to grasp a concept, I can try explaining in different ways. It is important that every student understands how their math problems are solved, so they can be successful in their classes and confident in their abilities. In my free time, I like reading books and rock climbing.."

"I'm a newcomer to the state of Texas, and “y'all” have been very welcoming! I have extensive teaching experience: I've taught students in four different states, and two different countries, ranging in ages from kindergarten to high school. I understand the frustrations of students who want to improve their performance. When I was a student, I excelled at school not because I'm naturally brilliant, but because I have high expectations. Although history and english and how to clearly explain concepts in writing came easily to me, test taking and math did not." ...

"I have years of experience tutoring others, from helping my four younger siblings with schoolwork and test prep to volunteering on National Honors Society tutoring nights. I think that everyone has the opportunity to do well in school if they get the right direction and enough practice. As a tutor, I work hard to help each student get to a place where they can feel comfortable with the material and go into every test with confidence in their ability. I like to find many different ways to explain topics or formulas including fun tricks that make them easier." ...

"I am currently an attorney in Houston. I went to the University of Texas, Austin (Plan II, Classics, and Sanskrit), and then went to the University of Michigan Law School. I am drawn to tutoring because I felt I had to learn a lot of things the hard way in my career path and would like to make things easier for others! I am passionate about classics and literature as well as law, and look forward to helping students beyond tutoring sessions as they start to build their careers.."

"Besides Chinese, I also love math. I received my bachelor’s degrees in Apply Mathematics and Chemistry from North Carolina State University in 2009. When I was in college I used to tutor Calculus I, II, and III, and I had experience in tutoring and teaching Organic I laboratory as well. I love helping people understand the concepts behind the math problems so that they can build their confidence and skills to solve the problems on their own."

" My approach to teaching is to cater to the learning style of the individual student. I focus on what the students feel is their weakest area. I like to develop study guides with the student to help them pinpoint key topics and through the process engage in comprehensive review of the material. I let the students lead the direction of the sessions through their questions rather than lecturing. I am accessible and flexible with scheduling."

"Though I don't plan on being a student forever, the time that I've spent preparing for college, graduate school, and now medical school has reminded me of how enabling a strong academic record can be. I've been tutoring since I was in high school and have worked with students at every level of education. I specialize in teaching from a very fundamental perspective and in building concepts from the ground up but also enjoy helping students to "just get done" with their homework. Though I'm particularly fond of math and science, I can provide assistance in almost any subject (from Latin to world geography to art history), and can also help in ...

"Being in a city like Houston is a big change, but I love all of the opportunities for experiencing the arts here. Even though I love music, my passion is teaching. From my first days in college teaching my hall-mates about the joys of classical music while hanging out, I knew that I loved helping people understand what it was that I found so interesting in music and the rest of my pursuits. I want to be a college teacher, so being a tutor is a wonderful way to get to know students on a personal level. In my spare time, I like to spend time cooking with my roommates and watching soccer (Viva Barcelona!) When I get the chance, I like to go to the Houston ...
