My experience in tutoring spans a wide variety of subjects and disciplines. I have degrees in Biology and Mathematics and am comfortable teaching any and all of the subjects in both science and math.
I have personally tutored everything from Algebra to Advanced Calculus and English to AP Biology and everything in between. I also have experience teaching to the SAT and ACT, and my scores on these exams reflect my understanding and ability to convey not only the test subjects, but test strategies as well. I scored 800 on the Math section of the SAT, and a 34 for my overall ACT score. I have also recently passed the Praxis II Exam in Math Content Knowledge while earning Recognition of Excellence for scoring in the top 15 percent over the last 5 years. I am currently teaching math full-time, and have access to myriad resources in Geometry, Algebra and Calculus and any other math course offered in high school.
My most valuable quality, however, is my ability to relate to students of all ages, and to make even the most difficult subjects easily understood.
