I am a professional tutor with over 6 years of experience. I tutor many students and promise success! My students have improved their grades by 1-2 letter grades within 3-4 sessions on average.
When tutoring, I am attentive and understand when a student is confused.I explain concepts in a manner in which they were taught in school so the student does not get confused.
I specialize in these subjects:
1) Elementary - Grades 1 to 8
2) Early Childhood - Preschool, Prekindergarten, and Kindergarte
3) Excellent academic preparation for kids entering grades K-6
4) Reading instruction for students with deficiencies at any grade
5) Math - Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and Calculus
6) Introductory and Intermediate French
8) ACT and SAT tutoring
I have worked with many students with ADD/ADHD. As a tutor, I find that the one-on-one interaction gives the ability to foster a strong interpersonal relationship that gives the student the flexibility to refocus his energy. With students diagnosed with ADD it is essential that we maximize the students' ability to concentrate. I thus teach the students in a calm environment and often give students checklists (agendas) of what they will learn that day, which allows the student to focus more clearly because they can anticipate what will come next.
I am a native speaker of Hindi and have tutored many students in the past to help improve their Hindi.
I have successfully prepared many students for this exam. In preparing for the MCATs, my approach is to cover the essentials in all four subjects. With biology, we review the integral concepts tested with respect to mcb and physiology, and practice using questions from EK, TRP, and AAMC. Practice is essential to doing well on the MCATs, and I have helped students raise their scores from 28 to 37.
As a tutor, I have helped many students improve their organizational and study habits. During sessions we work on organization and time management, including assignment and grade tracking, organization of papers, binders and personal study area, study planning and goal setting. In addition we work on note-taking skills, covering everything from listening well and following directions, to managing, presenting, and organizing information. I have also worked on reading and studying skills including making use of notes effectively, handling textbooks, reading strategies across school subjects, researching and writing reports, and subject-specific study techniques. We also work on test-taking strategies that include approaching different test question formats, including mcq and essay, and overcome test anxiety
