Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mr Alvin B.
Gender: Male   Age: 31-40
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have a 7-year track record of successfully instructing high school and college students in algebra, geometry, calculus, and physics. I am proficient in instructing all areas of SAT preparation. As the Head Instructor at C2 Educational Center in Burke, VA, I routinely prepared students to increase SAT scores 300+ points. In 2005, I was awarded Instructor Of The Year.

TEACHING STYLE: My approach to teaching is that each student is different and that it is the job of to the instructor to determine what method, technique, or strategy will work best for student. I am proficient in detecting auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning styles and tailor my instruction accordingly. I also know one of the keys to learning is that the student must be comfortable with me and feel that my mission is to help them master the subject at hand so that he or she can be at peace with the subject. In order to give my students every advantage I possible can, I routinely study accelerated learning material and pass that knowledge onto my students.
