Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am a full-time professional tutor and academic consultant. My job is to work with students, parents and teachers to achieve their academic goals and develop cognitive skills. A lot of what I do has to do with diagnosing specific performance gaps and using a highly personalized approach to target them. The majority of my clients hire me for help with math, specifically algebra and standardized testing like the SAT. For English and writing support, I coach students through the organized development of an essay with an analytic and structured language arts model that produces sustainable results.

It's common for students to say and truly feel that they are comfortable with a concept, and then perform poorly on an assignment or evaluation. This is a result of both their study as well as their teachers' teaching methods. Unfortunately, many educators focus on passively showing instead of actively teaching students how to problem solve. This facilitates the mere impression of knowledge, rather than fostering a real long-term understanding of the material.
