I am Texas transplant and graduated from Tulane University, where I majored in economics. After graduation I moved to New York to serve as an AmeriCorps with Habitat for Humanity. The skills I learned in teaching volunteers to build a house translate well to tutoring, and I am sure that I can help you improve your scores! With a perfect score on the 2016 MCAT CARS section, I specialize in tutoring reading comprehension and English for both the ACT and MCAT. My goal is to help you learn to read between the lines and develop strategies for test-day success. Other than tutoring, I do woodworking, read, bike, and box. I am looking forward to working with you!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I'd see what the student felt comfortable with, see where he or she needed work, and help develop a timeline for improvement.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I feel it's important to emphasize the why behind the correct answers to help the student improve.
