With nine years of experience tutoring in a variety of settings, I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of students improve their grades and progress intellectually. Whether it was the Division I college football player who needed to improve his grade in a difficult statistics class in order to remain eligible to play, the high school junior trying to pass the AP Economics test to get ahead in college, or the class full of 8th graders who needed extra preparation for high school math, my emphasis on cooperative learning and dialogue has never failed to find a tutoring method to accommodate individual students' learning styles.
My experiences include teaching a summer algebra class through UW-Milwaukee's Upward Bound Program, tutoring in Political Science, Economics, and Statistics for the University of Oklahoma Athletics Department, managing a team of nearly 40 volunteer tutors at Madison West High School's Schools of Hope program, and delivering review sessions to packed college lecture halls at the University of Oklahoma as an Undergraduate Teaching Fellow. I worked as a Master Tutor for the Milwaukee YMCA's Sponsor-A-Scholar program focusing on math and indepently developing and delivering a five week ACT prep course. I currently teach classroom SAT prep courses with a local Chicago organization.
While I have expertise in a variety of subject areas, I take particular pleasure in demystifying college Economics and teaching math to those who are "just not math people." I believe that the best teachers spend more time asking questions and listening than they do talking. I am looking forward to meeting you at our first session.
