I tutor students K-12 and college in English (reading and writing at all levels), Math (elementary through Algebra and Geometry), Science (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics), and Test Prep. My test prep specializations include the ACT, PSAT, SAT, GED, and TOEFL. Whether you need help to improve your writing or math skills, I team up with you to help you reach your goals. I believe that everyone can learn just about anything, and I am here to help you get to where you want to be.
I've worked with students of all ages, from 4 to 65. I've worked with students with ADHD and dyslexia. Wherever you are on the age or learning spectrum, I love working with my students to help them master subjects and to support them in their educational endeavors. I help students improve their grades and build confidence as they master skills. I can work with the student's school curriculum, as well as provide supplemental material as needed. I am available to all my students and their parents outside of lesson hours for any follow-up questions or concerns, free of charge. Especially for my middle and high school students, I am very aware of the fact that I am teaching skills that will be needed for admissions tests on the horizon such as the ACT and SAT. Reading comprehension especially is a skill that needs to be practiced early on for students to do well on these exams, as it is not as much a "crammable" skill as others. I help students stay ahead so they aren't left scrambling later.
As for math, I teach my students where formulas come from instead of just drilling them in memorization. Each math concept is a building block that leads to another, so weakness in one area will inevitably lead to confusion as the student moves on in the curriculum. I make sure the student fully understands each concept so they have a strong foundation to build on. A solid foundation in core math concepts are critical as students will see these same concepts again and again on exams like the SAT.
I make sure my students become confident learners so they have the essential skills needed to build on throughout their academic careers.
I look forward to teaming up with you to reach your educational goals!
