I have a Master's Degree in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona, and a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Biology and Philosophy. All of that means that what I know how to do is write about science and use the scientific method to think about writing. I actually find tests very fun and love tutoring verbal and essay SAT prep, but I am always happy to work in Biology, the Health Sciences, or essay-writing in general.
I like to have my students teach me to teach them. Everybody learns differently and struggles with different concepts, and as long as these learning styles are discovered and communicated, learning is always possible. When it comes to the SAT and essays, understanding exactly what the question is asking and regularly practicing the methods for finding the answer seem to be key in building both confidence and high scores. And when it comes to learning, finding some enthusiasm for the subject is the key to getting motivated.
