Through Teach for America and CMS I had the opportunity to teach high school math at both Independence and Rocky River High School. This experience also allowed me to teach an SAT prep course, help write the curriculum used for Introduction to Algebra, Pre-Algebra, and gain lots of experience in tutoring. I have tutored in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Introduction to Algebra, and GRE review and prep.
I also have a great deal of experience with writing. I am currently in law school, so I have taken the LSAT, but I have gained a lot of exposure to different kinds of writing and English. I have helped revise senior exits as well as college level papers and now law school papers.
My tutoring approach is to focus on what you need to succeed, and then go beyond just explaining the answer. The teacher in me comes out during tutoring, and I focus on getting you to understand the "why" behind the math, and how to improve so that you can succeed on all the exams and everything that comes with school. I also have experience with building in time management skills and study skills that will serve to increase the potential your student has in school.
