I'm currently studying strategic communication at college, and my love of communication makes me an excellent tutor. I am able to identify the needs of the student, and by isolating the areas of struggle I can build up the areas of weakness using the student's own knowledge.
I took AP English Language, AP English literature, AP US history, and AP US government receiving a 5 on all four, as well as scoring a 740 on SAT reading and 700 on SAT writing. ACT: 35 on Reading and 33 in English. Cumulative High School GPA was a 4.13
I love Latin, and relish the opportunity to share my knowledge with others. I took four years of high school Latin, the fourth year year was Honors Latin, and involved works of Caesar, St. Patrick, some Virgil, and Catullus.
My tutoring method is, I think, extremely effective. The trick with Latin, as is true of any language, is practice, practice, practice. Upon discovering the skill level of the person I am tutoring, I select passages that are within their vocabulary so they can focus on grammatical structure. In between reading passages, students will be parsing verbs and learning new vocabulary words. The idea is that their vocabulary is expanding at the same rate as their knowledge of the syntax of Latin, so that they never stagnate in one area and are constantly improving.
With math, it is essential to establish a firm foundation. These are the core concepts, upon which the rest of the subject is constructed. Without a firm foundation, a student can fail lesson after lesson and not know why. I start at the beginning, figure out where they are missing those core concepts, if anywhere, and only then will I move on to the more advanced techniques. As somebody who doesn't enjoy math, I understand how frustrating it can be, but I put the time in to master the subject, and am more than happy to make it understandable for your student.
