I have tutored part time for Los Angeles Unified School District in test preparation for California standardized tests (math and English). I have also tutored college students in the subject of psychology. I have taken several psychology courses. I have an A.A., a B.S., and I am currently a graduate student.
I use worksheets as well as hands-on activities to aid in the tutoring experience. I encourage my students to ask questions because I am here to help. There is no such thing as a dumb question. Before tutoring, I give the student a grade-level assessment test to see in what areas he or she needs assistance, unless the student specifies a specific area in which he or she wants assistance. The goal is to ensure the student increases by at least one letter grade, but it will take the efforts of both tutor and student, so we have to work as a team.
