Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Test prep tutors in Seattle, WA
"I help students learn and even enjoy scientific topics by showing them the fundamentals on simple terms. Once a student understands the fundamentals, then the student can approach more advanced topics with confidence. I believe any student can learn any topic at any level with appropriate time and one-on-one attention. I enjoy watching students overcome intimidating material once they learn the fundamentals. Having taken many tests myself, I appreciate the difficulty of preparing and managing time during a test."

"Hello! As an engineer, I take the utmost pride in my attention to detail; I assure you that your tutoring sessions will be both thorough and educational. I have been a volunteer tutor for college freshmen and sophomore level math classes as part of my membership in the Institute of Industrial Engineers during my years in college, and have worked in an elementary school environment where my duties as a technology coordinator occasionally required me to instruct students. For me, the biggest thrill in any job is visibly seeing that "light bulb moment" as someone crosses the boundary between confusion and understanding. Thank ...

"I began tutoring in high school as a favor to a family friend who was struggling in her math class. With my help, she was able to turn her failing grade in Algebra into a B+ by the end of the semester. That was the beginning of my passion for teaching. I hold undergraduate degrees in both English and the equivalent in mathematics because I loved both subjects so much I could not choose between them."

"I’ve always loved riddles—the mystery always drives me to put in a full mental effort, and you never know how far away from the answer you are until you reach it. I saw the brain as the world’s biggest riddle, and used that curiosity to get a degree in Neuroscience from Pomona College. My tutoring style aims to teach each student not just the WHAT, the correct answer, but also the HOW, the methods and problem-solving abilities necessary for working out that answer. I guide students and help them work out the answers themselves, making sure that they understand the process at each step of the way." ...
