Sid F. of San Francisco CA USA Tutor Profile
Tutor Personal Information
Tutoring Style and/or Experience
Academic success stems from a love for learning. I believe that a desire to learn can be nurtured at any age and requires a direct connection between teacher and student. I am committed to providing the best customized assistance to students who
are not getting everything that they need inside the classroom.
? I specialize and have extensive training and experience in tutoring SAT I General (M/V/W) and Subject tests and K-12 English, Math, and Science (AP included). I also provide specialized adult instruction in GRE (Math and Verbal), advanced Math, English, and a variety of software products.
? I graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University with a degree in Environmental Engineering (2008) and from Brandeis University with a degree in Chemistry (2008).
? I focus my review on specific strategies and techniques while checking progress with practice tests. I tailor my programs based on the amount of time remaining before tests, and based on a student's strengths and weaknesses, emphasize only those strategies that will maximize his or her score.
? I have worked with students with a variety of base scores and learning abilities. Average improvement was 150 points per subject area over the course of 6-15 lessons.
? I have my own car and can meet students in within 20 miles of San Francisco. Travel to further out locations may be arranged at an extra fee.
