Higher education is a pursuit reserved for those willing to overcome many hurdles, with the understanding that a degree is only the beginning to a successful career. As someone with experience both inside and outside the world of academia, I enjoy guiding students through these obstacles and providing insight into all aspects of academic and career trajectories, including graduate admissions and career applications.
I mainly tutor the GMAT and related quantitative and qualitative subject matter. Students enjoy my ability to relate to them on many levels and my capacity to explain a wide range of topics and break down difficult questions into easily understandable solutions. I believe that students benefit most from a healthy mix of specific, topic-related tutoring and general tutoring about admissions tests and processes. Furthermore, I provide students with the necessary tools to tackle multiple problems through understanding the underlying questions presented in admissions tests.
I am a graduate of the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. Since graduation, I have established a successful career working for international companies in management positions. In my spare time, I enjoy flying private aircraft, camping and playing music.
How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?
Each student has an individual learning style. However, the actual methods remain the same. So, I essentially modify my communication styles based on a student's needs in order to effectively tutor a certain area.
What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?
I mainly use the Official Guide for GMAT and supplemental materials provided by the official test.
