Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Have you been struggling with grammar and reading? Need some help applying all those physics equations to real situations? Having trouble getting your child to finish his math homework?

I can help!

I'm an experienced tutor and teacher at levels from elementary school to college. My daytime job is as a part-time literature professor for college undergraduates, but I also work with students as young as 6 or 7.

My friendly, gentle but no-nonsense approach will help you discover what kinds of questions to ask yourself so that you solve every problem! I specialize in using multiple methods to deal with any kind of question, so that by the end, you understand the idea inside and out. Students tell me that my enthusiasm and my ability to understand the way they see a problem makes working together easy and fun.

Specific subjects I've tutored include:

* Reading
* Math
* Grammar
* Essay organization
* Vocabulary
* Poetry and meter
* Biology up to the college level (general biology, cell biology, developmental biology, ecology)
* Physics and advanced math (SAT prep, GRE prep, calculus, algebra, down to long division and borrowing)

My qualifications include 3.9 undergrad GPA and 99th percentile scores on the SAT and GRE. I know how to score high, and I can teach you to do the same.
