Hello Student and/or Parent,

If you need a tutor for pre-algebra, algebra, writing, grammar, SAT, Praxis, and GED, I am accepting students.

I have a proven track record in tutoring and teaching. I have tutored four subjects while in college. I have also tutored Praxis candidates, SAT candidates, and K-12 students. During my employment with Prince George's Community College, I successfully taught math and language arts (English) to GED candidates; I also taught them how to prepare for the real world by providing some of my life experiences.

More specifically, I have developed an innovative way to convert and compare Fractions, Percents, Decimals, and Ratios as well as a way to understand long division using my D-M-S-BD technique. These and my other strategies help improve students test scores and their confidence. My lessons are engaging and descriptive. In addition, I have the natural gift to lead and motivate others toward successfully completing their educational goals.

My Tutoring experience includes the ability to solve problems by first detecting and then resolving the problem as well as the ability to prioritize challenging topics and map out an plan of action. I exercise critical listening skills and patience with learners (adolescents and adults) as they wrestle with difficult subjects.

In summary, I have the training and experience to tutor for multiple exams and subject areas, . In addition, I have developed teaching strategies. I also have the ability to detect and resolve students' challenges with difficult subjects.

I look forward to talking with and working with you.

Thanks,
Arvel

In addition, I have the unique ability to explain math topics in multiple ways just in case the student does not fully understand the way the topics are taught in the textbook.

I have a strong command of the English language and the unique ability to explain English/language arts topics in a way that most students can understand.

GED

I have been a GED instructor at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and have taught GED classes previously with the Prince George's County Public School System. I have the unique ability to explain the more challenging areas of the GED subject areas.

Grammar

I have been teaching grammar and reading in the Adult Education program at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and previously with the Prince George's County Public School System's adult education program as well. I have a deep understanding of mechanics, punctuation, and sentence and paragraph structure. I also have the ability to explain complicated grammar topics in a way that most students can remember.

Praxis

I have been an instructor at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and have previously taught classes with the Prince George's County Public School System.

I passed the Praxis exam on the first try, while getting 28 out of 30 questions correct on the math part of the test.

Prealgebra

I have been teaching pre-algebra in the Adult Education program at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and previously with the Prince George's County Public School System's adult education as well. I am able to explain math topics in a way that students can understand.

Reading

I have been teaching English/language arts in the Adult Education program at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and previously with the Prince George's County Public School System's adult education as well.

Writing

I have been teaching writing at Prince George’s Community College since 2007 and previously with the Prince George's County Public School System's.

Very easy going - Updated — My son met with Arvel for the first time this weekend. He was very easy to talk to and patient. He was able to relate math to every day life occurrences and use that to break the ice. My son felt confident that meeting with Arvel will help him in the future. It is helpful to me as a parent, that Arvel is flexible with his schedule and able to meet at a variety of places. We are looking forward to ...
