I have plenty of experience as both a personal tutor and a class instructor. I have been a Certified AVID Tutor since back in 2005. I have my BAs in both political science and economics with a strong emphasis in mathematics from the University of California, San Diego. I received a perfect 800 on the Math Section of the SAT and a 790 in Math on the SAT IIs. I also have a strong writing background and have given private lessons in preparing for the SATs. My teaching style has always been one that encourages students to find their own answers with guidance, if needed, rather than to just provide them with answers. I am also a firm believer in the students learning both the mechanics as well as the application of problems. I believe that if a student can understand the reasoning behind the answers, they will be able to apply that reasoning to any problems with a similar application process. I also understand that not all students learn the same way and I am adaptable to how each student learns.
I also care about the pupil. All too often people only look at tutoring as a job, however, I care about the progress of my students and their successes. Before I start any tutoring, I always make sure to have the full commitment of the parents as well as the student to do their part along with sharing my commitment to you as well. This is the only way to build trust between all parties involved. With a full understanding of the needs and expectations of everyone, I believe that we can make the success of your student a reality.
