...this particular student. My favorite subjects to tutor include writing and editing, whether we're working on a research paper, a college application essay, or reviewing grammar; public speaking; SAT prep; and study skills and organization, because each of these areas boosts overall academic success and builds a student's self-confidence. In any subject, I focus on study skills, critical thinking, and independent concept reinforcement so that soon the student will no longer need me to excel....

I believe that teachers and tutors should work to communicate their passion for a subject to a student, because interest is often the gateway to understanding and improvement. Along with reading and writing, music has been my lifelong passion. In my free time, I play the guitar and piano, write songs, and occasionally perform around the Boston area. I also like...

Certified SAT Math Tutor in Somerville, MA

I've been teaching biology to undergraduates since 2003, as a tenured professor at the University of Redlands and as visiting faculty at various institutions, including Boston College and Williams College. One of my greatest joys in life is seeing my students grow in their skills, their confidence, and the power to shape their futures.... I focus on helping students build a network of ideas so that they can remember and use them. I also guide them through the kinds of problem-solving strategies that experts use. My approach is to meet students where they are and work with them step by step until they master a topic, using positive feedback and encouraging self-reflection along the way.
