Hello. I am a former high school teacher (10 years) and current tutor for the Critical Reading/Writing portions of the SAT. I also tutor other standardized tests (ASFAB, GED, etc.).
Additionally, I have a Master's in Theatre Arts, and an extensive background as a professional singer/actor and director, so I would be happy to coach your child in voice and/or drama (e.g., audition prep, etc.).
I recently finished tutoring an 8 week SAT prep course and I continue to privately tutor students in ASVAB and SAT prep. For my SAT students, baseline scores increased by 200 - 400 points by the end of the course. I utilize test-taking strategies--both new and intuitive to the student--that are specific to each section of the exam. Additionally, students develop vocabulary and context skills; and writing and reading skills through practice exercises, practice tests, and "tutoring the tutor."
My strengths are in meeting students where they are, adapting my methods to suit their individual needs, and increasing their self-confidence as learners and test-takers by continually reinforcing what they are doing right in addition to correcting what needs to be improved upon. I enjoy teenagers and like to teach with a sense of humor so nobody gets bored!
