Prepping for a test is very important. Being familiar with what the test is about is also important. I am a patient tutor, use examples and go step by step so each student gains confidence in understanding and solving the problems. This helps with success on the test.
I have worked with ADD/ADHD children in the past. I have several hundred hours of experience using Play Therapy which is a tremendous tool to help work with children as we tutor in subjects like math.
Using a tactile approach along with a white board and a textbook/study manual helps slow things down so the tutoring is done at the speed of the child.
Redundancy made fun helps the child retain what is learned and reveals strengths (successes) and weak areas (future successes).
Another area to help the parents with the child is filial therapy which I have used extensively.
I have always found math easy to understand and like solving problems. It's been fun to tutor for almost 20 years and make math more understandable.
I have worked with children with Asperger's and high functioning autism in the past. Since the area is so specialized and requires either a certified clinician or someone with a great deal of experience and awareness, I believe I do have that experience. I have a Master's Degree in Counseling and I have over two hundred hours of experience using Play Therapy for children with AS & HFA.
My experience is with children 8 years and older and have utilized art therapy and cognitive behavior therapy.
I believe using a tactile approach along with a white board and a basic textbook/study manual helps slow things down so the tutoring is done at the speed of the student.

I have a BS in Inorganic Chemistry and have tutored for almost 20 years. I've been employed in the Chemical industry for 17 years and have taught seminars on all aspects of chemical handling, reactivity, emergency procedures and chemical reaction in production.
I love tutoring in chemistry and my specialties are:
I try to make understanding chemistry easy by using examples, supplemental resources and strategies to make studying and retention much easier.
I've got a Master's degree in Counseling. I tutored other counseling students in career counseling at the grad school level. Most of my students are high school and adults which seems to be an audience affinity.
Every first session always has an assessment and the students often ask about college level classes. Also, because of my background in industrial and inorganic chemistry, I have a tremendous amount of experience with what many industries/careers entail.
I homeschooled my children who are now on the Dean's List at their college and have advised them in their college careers.
I've also been a part-time pastor who often counsels families and students regarding career and college choices.
I have taught and tutored discrete math for many years. I assisted the local school system and their high school students for the last two years and have helped at the local community college as well.
Topics such as set theory, Boolean algebra, Eurlerian graphs and critical paths, and the traveling salesman problem are typical of what we cover with great success for students.
I have 20 years' tutoring experience working with elementary aged children as a volunteer in public schools in phonics, grammar, reading, math, history and science. I tutored writing and grammar to third and fourth graders in the Florida public school system for 5 years.
I have also tutored elementary students in math and reading for 4 years here in North Carolina.
I have a great deal of experience working with special needs children who have high functioning autism and ADD/ADHD. Overall, it adds up to almost 20 years' experience with elementary aged students in reading, writing, grammar, math and science.
ESL is very important in today's world. I have worked with many students develop better skills by focusing on the basics through good grammar, enunciation and vocabulary. These are basic, but essential skills to prep for the exam.
Passing the GED is an important hurdle. Even though the format is changing, the basic skills and subject knowledge are still the same. I have helped people for many years and customize our sessions to every student. And we have fun in the process.
I have a minor in Biology from Northern Illinois University and have an MA in Counseling with six graduate hours at the MA level on Bioethics which includes very in depth knowledge on human genomics, stem cell research, and recombinant DNA technologies. I also have participated in Bioethics conferences and can provide proof of syllabi, grades - final exams and more. Since we also homeschool our children, I have taught my daughter (age 17) genetics and bioethics.
More and more schools are accepting the GRE, so having a deep broad knowledge on many subjects is essential. The best way to do that is to practice for the GRE. I give practice tests to prep and familiarize students so they know what to expect, know how long it will be and proctor and evaluate the results of the practice test. No student should go in unprepared. I prepare them.
I am very familiar with the MCAT. I have advised students on it and have experience helping them prep for the test. My wife works at a drug store and I helped the husband of the pharmacy manager prep in areas he needed a refresher in.
I also took the MCAT many years ago and remember the rigors of prepping and actually taking the test.
I have a BS in Chemistry from Northern Illinois University. I have worked for two large chemical companies and was a Technical Rep in organic and industrial chemicals. I am quite proficient in the subject and can really help students navigate their way through it.
As part of my MA in Counseling, I had to write treatment protocols in Psychopathology where I became familiar with basic pharmacological concepts including kinetics and dynamics. As a result, I earned 6 hours of credit at the graduate level in Pharmacology. This gave me the knowledge to tutor students on the effects and mechanisms of drugs and agents.
I also have a degree in chemistry and 20 years of tutoring organic and biochemistry too.
I have 20 years experience helping students apply the concepts of physical science to real world applications. I show how to make pictures of things, tabulate any data and immediately begin to apply and solve the problem at hand. This promotes good solving ability and memory retention as well.

I have used QuickBooks and QuickBooks POS for several years. I use it for inventory control, budgeting, accounts receivable, customer information, payroll and just about everything it has available. I am self employed, so wearing a lot of hats has made me pretty proficient in QuickBooks.
Good organization and commitment are the key to good study skills. For the last 5 years, I have worked with students by doing an academic assessment of where they're at. Once I see how their thought process works, I help them by making a schedule and develop a good routine for school. Their commitment comes from within themselves; but it begins by someone listening to them and giving them a perspective about things.
Then comes showing tricks for memorization and retention, good note taking, and developing their critical thinking abilities. "Over" learning a subject by learning about it more than one way and staying organized gives students the confidence they just might be the smartest person in the room. I have done this with high school students in Florida for 7 years and here in North Carolina for the last 5 years.
The TEAS (Teaching of Essential Academic Skills) test for Nursing School is a comprehensive knowledge exam. I have over 10 years' experience and have tutored dozens of students prepare for the exam. Although proficient in all areas, I specialize in math and science portions of the exam.
I have tutored trig and all levels of math for almost 20 years. I have found success by breaking concepts down into understandable pieces and solving problems and applications by putting the pieces back together. Trig isn't that hard once you understand the basic principles and functions. I try to help to "see" what trig is about. I have found that the better one can "see", the easier to understand and solve the task at hand.
