"I'm happy to help students with any of the sciences, including college courses, English, or test prep for the SAT or MCAT. I will do everything I can to help you see results, and I'm also going to try my best to make sessions enjoyable because studying is painful enough already without a tutor making it worse. I try to make sure that I don't add to students' stress and help them relax while working through their studies with me. My basic philosophy with tutoring is to assess which areas are challenging and which areas are easy, then develop a plan to focus on the most difficult areas and build skills there." ...

" 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. I show students how to proceed through test questions quickly and manage time during a test. Test prep is necessary in today's education system, and I believe it's important to help students cope and excel through these pressure situations. I always emphasize with students that their goal is not a perfect score, but rather the ability to proceed efficiently through questions without second guessing." ...
