At this time, I am tutoring at local libraries (no home tutoring) during the afternoon Monday-Thursday as well as Thursday evening. I have some availability on weekends. Sessions are 1.5 hours.
I tutor all sections of the SAT and ACT as well as SAT II Writing. I also help students with essay writing (including college application essays), from brainstorming to outlining to proofreading. I have tutored test prep and academic subjects with a national test prep company for the past three years. I have been tutoring independently for the past year.
My strength as a tutor lies in my patience, thorough questioning of a student's thought process and breakdown of more effective strategies, and a supportive attitude. My students leave with greater confidence and stronger study skills. Test prep students see an average increase of 150 points SAT/3 points composite ACT. Essay writing students learn to expand their idea base and improve the clarity of their writing. Students are assigned homework to reinforce what they've learned and I provide periodic progress reports.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree from Brown University with concentrations in American Studies and Literary Arts. In addition to my tutoring experience, I have three years experience teaching ESL both in the US and abroad. I also currently teach ESL in adult community ESL classes.
My time working in education has taught me flexibility and the necessity of creating a strong foundation. I believe that students really learn when they truly understand the principles behind how to do something. Over my years in education, I have developed the resourcefulness to reach students at all levels.
I look forward to hearing from you!
