I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with a BS in Psychology (major GPA 3.9/4.0), and a minor in Spanish. I have several years tutoring experience in high school (grades 9-12) subjects including Algebra 2, Geometry, English, and Spanish. I also served a year with Literacy AmeriCorps of Palm Beach County teaching and tutoring high school students in ACT/SAT prep and various subjects. I have also been employed by several other private tutoring companies such as Parliament Tutors, where I have tutored MCAT (my student raised her MCAT score from a 26 to a 32 after tutoring!).
My mathematics tutoring style is Socratic, and I value the idea of the student "putting the pieces together" himself/herself by asking pointed questions. I prefer example-based teaching, which starts with the problem before introducing the concept or equation. I also stress repetition, especially in Algebra 2 and Geometry, in order to solidify understanding of when to use a certain equation and how to apply it. All of my previous students have seen grade increases, and all of my high school seniors in my AmeriCorps program were accepted to college! My own SAT scores from high school were 750 Verbal and 710 Math, and a 5 on the AP English exam. I am a big fan of science fiction and comic book movies, and my favorite shows are Doctor Who and Game of Thrones!
Look forward to working with you!
