Though I am new to Wyzant, I am trained in standardized test instruction by Kaplan (the leading test prep company), and have spent two years teaching at the college freshman level. When tutoring students in my specialties—math
, verbal, and writing
skills—I also share with them the same test-preparation and test-taking techniques that I used myself to score 780 math/770 verbal on the SAT
, and to earn perfect scores (800s) on the GRE
math and verbal. In addition to preparing students for the SAT, ACT
, GRE, and GED
exams, I also tutor younger students in math and English
for success in middle school and high school.
Whether a student is looking for help with algebra
equations or with the SAT writing
section, I usually ask him or her to complete a brief diagnostic test before our first meeting. I then use this assessment to identify the areas in which the student needs to improve, so that we can focus our time on strengthening these weaknesses from the very first lesson. By assigning challenging homework and reviewing it at the student’s own pace, I ensure that he or she makes steady progress without being overwhelmed.
Although my current rate per student is $45 an hour, students who meet with me in groups receive a discount of 10% off for every student after the first one and up until the fifth one; in other words, two students who meet with me at the same time each get 10% off, three students each get 20% off, four each get 30% off, and five or more each get 40% off. There are also discount packages that individual students can obtain with Wyzant of 5%, 10%, or 15% off of my hourly rate.
Since my only goal is to help you achieve yours, I do not bill for any lesson with which the student or parent is not entirely satisfied, and I frequently ask for feedback. Also, while I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up sessions at no extra cost.
My schedule is very flexible, so I try to accommodate the student’s own schedule as much as possible. I prefer to meet in group study rooms that I reserve at one of the five Fredericksburg area libraries (Central Rappahanock Headquarters, England Run, Salem Church, Porter, and Snow), since these are optimal places to get a lot of work done together, but I am open to other locations that are more convenient for the student.
I look forward to hearing from you, and to working with you!
