Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Test prep tutors in Katy, TX
" I tutor a wide variety of subjects, but I especially love to prepare students for standardized testing and college entrance exams. I've learned that success on standardized tests depends on the strategy with which the student approaches the test. I have taken many standardized tests on my way to becoming a National Advanced Placement Scholar and National Merit Scholar; I love to share my successful test-taking strategies with other students. I find that these strategies give students the confidence to succeed."

"I prefer to teach in a one on one environment because it helps to focus in on the needs of the student and shows huge improvement over standard classroom teaching. I am currently a math major at the University of Houston. I am in my third year of school, and plan to go to graduate school to pursue a PhD in Math. When not working or studying, I usually am either playing video games or reading.."

"My mother, a small-business owner/educator and my father, an electrical engineer instilled the value of education in me at an early age. I learned a lot of my teaching style from them; patience, repetition, organization, and motivation to name a few. I began tutoring my cousins in my youth who struggled with math, science, or english. In college, this continued as I tutored underclassmen in the biological sciences, organic chemistry, algebra, and writing. After graduation, I had a natural inclination to service students in the classroom as a high school biology teacher for two years in HISD." ...

"For me, teaching works best through conversation. I like to ask a lot of questions and encourage students to learn the logic behind the answers. Typically, memory is more accurate if you learn information by relating it to your own life. My goal is to have the students develop a connection to the material and enjoy learning."

" I understand that a lot of students have various difficulties in school, but most of them boil down to a small number of causes which are completely fixable. The two which I try to isolate in my tutoring sessions are the fact that Math and Economics seem COMPLICATED and BORING to students. Math is complex and overwhelms a number of students. Many students get a problem incorrect before they even begin to work towards the answer simply because they freak out after reading it. I remember back before I learned one little precept by which I now live my life, I used to stare at some Math problems and think "How will I ever solve this, it is impossible!" ...

"My first teaching placement was for an ESL 5th grade classroom where I taught all subjects to transitional bilingual students. After that experience, I began working in the charter school network teaching 7th grade Algebra for a KIPP middle school. After finishing my two-year commitment to Teach for America, I chose to leave teaching to go to graduate school. However, my then-fiance could not find a job where I wanted to go to school, so we decided to stay in Houston. We got married on September 23, 2011, and then I began teaching again, now at the high school level." ...

"I am currently an undergraduate at Rice University studying Bioengineering and minoring in Biochemistry/Cell biology and Global Health Technologies. Throughout my undergraduate and high school career, I have been able to explore a wide range of subjects and identify subjects or areas of study that I truly enjoy.

"In the past when I tutored elementary school students, my style tended to be one of encouragement. My primary goal is to nurture a sense of accomplishment and pride in the student, so that they may eventually find themselves engrossed in their studies with little to no need for a tutor. In essence, I try to impart my own passion for learning on the student. Of course the strategy varies with each student: perhaps an athlete student would be better driven by competition, while an artsy child may enjoy discovering that mathematics can really be looked at like a beautiful foreign language. Outside of math and science, I do also speak/write in ...
