Award-Winning GMAT Tutors in Barton Creek, TX
Sanjiv ...Competition Math. More recently, I spent many months tutoring groups of highschoolers in Geometry to prepare them for their TAKS exams. I have also given one-on-one Calculus tutoring to several college students, as Calculus is my favorite subject. Since I love math in general, I tutor many subjects from Algebra II to SAT/GRE Test Prep. I like to be very patient and encouraging with my students, because I believe all students can excel if they...

Tom I have a passion for learning and for helping others to learn! Started teaching undergrad courses in 1991...began tutoring in 1999 and received a tutoring award from the University of Pennsylvania. I like to make hard subjects clear and easy to handle!... Usually it's part "get to know you." But then I ask them what is bothering them the most, and we start there. If we have to back up to review things, no problem; I am there to help. I try to remind students I am not their teacher or parent, and I am not judging them at all.

I also have some experience aiding college students through coursework while leading group study sessions. I also taught elementary aged children the...
Andrew ...and motivation. Exercising the brain is no different than exercising the body. With effort, commitment, and determination, a student can find success. I thoroughly enjoy the "ah ha" moment when a student begins to grasp the ideas and concepts in a subject. Getting to this moment is important. Equally important is building on that moment in further learning. I have found that a student intuitively knows if the tutor is patient, understanding, and creative about...

Dominic Hi! I'm a true academic at heart who really believes that knowledge is power! I have an unusually wide range of academic areas of expertise, which provides me with a pretty broad set of perspectives to explore to find out what works best for each individual student. I always enjoy working with motivated students -- let's get powerful together!

John I graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC in 2008, the oldest English speaking acting conservatory in the world. In spite of my English background, I do a lot of math and physics tutoring. I'm a huge Red Sox fan and love watching detective shows when I have free time.... Positivity. Always. I believe that if a student is given positive tools and is allowed to understand the material rather than be lectured at, they're more likely to do well in the future.

Lana I'm committed to serving students in order to support them in their success by helping them explore and learn in ways that are more engaging. ... I meet the student where they are at to get an understanding of why they are having difficulties in the subject matter.... I get to know the student by asking lots of questions and listening very carefully.... I give the student tools and resources to discover on their own. I also find out what interests the student and connect the content somehow to that.
Jim I am a great tutor because when I am finished tutoring a student, they not only get their work done, they understand the concept they were having trouble with. I tutored at Austin Community College for two years, I taught Secondary Mathematics for three years, and I taught at a career school for over 3 years, where I taught College Algebra, among other general education courses. ... Before getting started, I tend to get comfortable and relax, with the hope that the student will as well. I believe that the student must be involved in their own learning. I do not do the work for the student. My goal is to give the student the tools to help themselves. When a student tells me "I don't get it," I use probing questions to get them to narrow it down to exactly what it is that they don't get. I encourage them to apply themselves. I also do plenty of examples, doing whatever I can to relate the work to the real world, and specifically, their real world. I try to gain a rapport with the student, then relate the course material to the student's life.
