Recently while helping a student with calculus
, she spontaneously exclaimed, "This is the most fun I've had in math
all year!" This was coming from a very normal student who originally just wanted to not fail calculus. After working with her for the last couple of months, she now has a different goal - to get an 'A'.
This is my goal for all my students - to enjoy themselves, to enjoy learning, and to strive for excellence.
Regarding my background, I have been a full-time classroom teacher, I have taught summer school, and I have tutored many students, from 10 year olds to law
students and everything in between! While my primary area of specialty is math - I majored in Applied Mathematics
at Harvard, I scored a 5 on the Calculus BC Advanced Placement Exam, and achieved a perfect score on the SAT II
Mathematics test - I do also tutor all the major standardized tests.
I have taught everything from pre-algebra
when I was a full time teacher at an elite private school in St Louis, Missouri. That included the full progression of Algebra, Algebra II
etc. I have also tutored the SAT
and the LSAT
many times. I scored 99th percentile on the SAT (perfect score on current scale) and 95th on the LSAT. In all I have over 20 years of experience with countless students in many different subjects. I relate well to young people and I will make our lessons fun and enjoyable - if learning is fun then it becomes easy and interesting.
Thanks for your time and consideration, and best of luck in your studies!!!
