ExperienceI have 10 years of tutoring experience, have been formally tutor trained, and have even won a National Tutor of the Year award for my work with one education company.
I have worked with students ranging from 1st grade to adults, and most often tutor students in Math (from grade school up to trigonometry/Pre-Calculus), English, Reading, and basic Science. I tutor very interactively, and focus on customizing my tutoring for the student's particular needs. I can help with homework, study skills, or enrichment activities to go beyond the classroom. I particularly enjoy helping students discover that they actually CAN be good at the subject that is challenging them, provided they work hard and ask lots of questions.
I am also one of those rare individuals who love standardized tests, and I have tutoring experience in the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, ISEE, and SSAT. I have tutored all components of each of the tests, and have scored at least in the 95th percentile on all of them.
Specific test scores:
SAT - 800 Verbal, 790 Math; have repeatedly scored perfect on recent practice tests
ACT - repeatedly scored perfect on recent practice tests
GRE - 170 Verbal, 169 Quantitative, 6 AWA
LSAT - 174 on practice test
HobbiesI enjoy coffee and living in the Northwest. I love spending time with family. I have also been known to do math problems for fun!
