I've been tutoring others since I started high school and have continued to do throughout my college career. At first I tutored math predominantly, but over time I have also branched out into tutoring economics, accounting, SAT math prep, and the GMAT. The core of my approach is to understand the student first and how he or she learns so that I can adapt my style accordingly. I have experience teaching students of all ages, from volunteering in a kindergarten classroom to doing SAT and GMAT test preparation, and understanding how they think makes all the difference.
To give you an idea of my academic background, I majored in business economics at UCLA with a 3.9 GPA with minor in accounting with a 3.5 GPA. My college level math is decent too, as I was pursuing a mathematics minor for a while. In high school, I did the International Baccalaureate (IB) program; I received a 7 in HL chemistry, HL economics, and SL math and a 6 in HL physics, SL English, and SL Latin. I got 2100 on the SAT I with an 800 in math, and on the SAT II subject tests I scored 770, 790, and 800 on physics, chemistry, and math II, respectively. Lastly, I was in the 96th percentile on the GMAT with a perfect score in the analytical writing section.
Overall, you can see that my specialties are 'number related' subjects and standardized tests, the latter of which I know how to 'break'. I'm an efficient and thorough teacher, and will make sure you know the material on your own when test time comes, but overall I like to have fun with the whole process.
