Hello, I'm Tayla. I am from Boston, where I first began tutoring at my college's Learning Resource Center. I like to focus on Math subjects such as Geometry and Algebra. I also have had experience tutoring in standardized tests, with a specific focus in SAT and GRE Quantative sections. I understand that each student learns differently, which is why it is important to talk with the student and figure out how they learn best.
