I have been tutoring high school and junior high school for a little over six years. My primary areas of expertise are math (through precalculus), English (literature, grammar, and writing), religious studies, chemistry, SAT, ACT, SAT II in Literature and Math, and the GRE. I am very good at making complex concepts more accessible for students of all levels of academic achievement. I have helped students raise their SAT scores from mid-600s to high 700s (on all three sections), and I have helped students raise their scores from lower 400s into the mid to high 500s. I relish the challenge of learning how to teach the same material to a wide variety of students with varied, diverse learning styles and abilities. I work with students of all ages, but excel especially with high school age students (or college students taking courses within my purview). I recently took the GRE myself and managed to score a half-point off of perfect (I'd be happy to show you the score reports). Since then I have begun to tutor individuals for the GRE as well. I am comfortable working with students who are highly intelligent - even those seeking that elusive perfect score on the SAT or ACT - as well as those struggling with learning disabilities, asperger's syndrome, or other issues that make succeeding in a standardized educational system (at times) extremely challenging.
My tutoring style is warm and personable. I haven't really run into students who don't like working with me, and I have a lot of fun getting to know the students I work with as I help them meet their academic goals. I have tutored with several different private tutoring companies throughout the years, and I have worked with students without the medium of a tutoring organization. As far as my educational background goes, I am a graduate of Azusa Pacific University. I have a Master's degree from Claremont School of Theology and have self-published a book about spirituality. I think it's rare to get a tutor who's very gifted in math and science, but also able to work extensively with humanities, English and writing.
