I'm very friendly, energetic, positive, and encouraging! I am particularly motivated by students whose frustration causes them to lose confidence. I have experience tutoring writing at the University of California, Davis, and I have also tutored test preparation for 3 years. (I'm familiar with many tests other than the SAT and ACT-- if you have questions about a specific test, let me know!) I can also help with college applications and admissions essays! In many cases, I can come to your home; I'm also happy to meet at a public library.
