I'm CBEST certified, and I've worked privately with students as well as with after-school companies. Recently I helped put together an after-school supplemental program for a charter school's CAHSEE prep. As a result, we had a 90 percent passing rate in total for all classes participating, a record!
I believe in three things when it comes to learning: routine, preparation and repetition. After a couple lessons of getting to know each other, it's important to develop a consistent schedule and strategy for each lesson. Once I figure out how you like to process information, I will do my best to construct a plan that fits you personally. It doesn't have to be rigid, but it helps to keep a steady framework of how we break down the time we have. Preparation is key for both you and me. Your job is to take what's learned in each lesson and find a way to digest the knowledge on your own time. My job is to know different perspectives of looking at the same lesson so that you know not just how to solve each problem, but why it is important to solve in the first place. Finally, after all the methods I've tried in helping students with exams and standards, repetition still proves as the most effective. Drills, exercises, flashcards, oral reviews; they all help in developing and coalescing ideas already discovered by you. I have found that even in reading and literature assignments such as essays, this helps my students to really organize their thoughts into well-rounded, informed opinions.
I am flexible on rates and willing to hear offers, and I only ask that cancellations are called in advance two hours ahead of the session. Thank you very much and I look forward to getting to work!
