Studies have shown that the best way to accelerate your student's learning is to hire an individual tutor. A great tutor can cover twice the material in the same amount of time it takes a teacher with 30 students in a class. Here's what I offer to each student:
-Customized individual feedback
-Challenges and fun games to motivate your student to achieve better grades
-Keep track of what your student needs to focus on daily, weekly, and for the whole semester.
I graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from college with a degree in economics. I excelled generally in all subjects in K-12 through college. My academic success arose from being a hard worker and having a good system of learning in place, not from being a naturally gifted student.
One of the greatest secrets of "A-students" is not that they are naturally gifted, but that they work hard and fail often. Learning and and academic success come from learning from your failures before you actually get graded on them. In my sessions, we make mistakes early so we do not make them on the test.
I specialize in tutoring students in economics, SAT/ACT prep, and writing. I embrace the 'flipped classroom model,' which means I typically assign students material to read and problems to try before our session. In my sessions, we follow an agenda: diagnose the problem, test the student's learning, review the answer, and repeat. We spend more time applying skills and less time doing boring stuff that doesn't enhance learning.
In the past, I have typically worked with high school students and college freshmen but can work with any level if it is within my knowledge area. I try to tailor learning styles to achieve understanding and skill demonstration by any and all means. If my 'system' doesn't work, we'll find another way to get the material across.
I am organized, prompt, and hate wasting someone's time and money. I also embrace technology to make learning more effective and efficient. Send me a note and we'll get started!
