Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Hi, I am a professional Math, Science, and Standardized Test Prep tutor. Through a highly developed system of teaching, I have helped 100s of students achieve a high level of success that they previously thought was not possible.

Every student has a unique comprehension
Tutoring is highly effective when attention is given to a students unique comprehension! By honing in on exactly what is missing, I dramatically accelerate the process of learning!

Teaching strategically is key to results
I can make any student understand any Math and Science Subject! My tutoring style is about teaching strategically, and not just about showing the steps! Students need someone to explain the concepts in a way that they can understand. A lot of times it takes showing student other simpler versions of a question to build them up to understanding the question at hand. Many tutors just show students how to do a problem. This generally does not work.

Being a well rounded tutor helps develop a respect that increases learning
By understanding a students interests and perspective, I evoke excitement and joy in even the most uninterested students! A boring tutor who is unable to connect with a student will have a lot of trouble getting a student to pay attention and look forward to a tutoring session. For this reason, making your student respect you, and appreciate you as more than just a teacher is significantly beneficial to the learning process.

Tutoring vs. Lecturing
The tutoring format is a more effective way to teach than the lecture format that is used in school! Most students, especially ones that are slightly behind, have trouble learning from a teacher presenting a concept to a classroom full of students. In this format, the student has to just do their best to pick up as much information and comprehension as possible. Tutoring is infinitely more effective, because it allows a constant interaction between the student and the teacher.

Academic Mentorship!
I make students feel confident that they are on the path to success by being a source of knowledge and guidance. School can be a lot of pressure! For a student to relax and enjoy the process, they need a strong support system! All my students know that they are in good hands.

I am a tutor that truly has a passion for the art of teaching. Many of my students have said that two hours with me is better than a whole week in class. I am available for travel to student's homes or a preferred location.
