I am a recent college graduate who has been studying and substitute teaching while I apply to a Masters program in secondary education. I have been tutoring/mentoring students since I was 14 when I helped a former teacher of mine at Lynnbrook Elementary. I have since tutored and mentored students of all ages from 7-21 in many different fields. I was a tutor for college level biochemistry and organic chemistry while in college and also taught high school chemistry and biology. My SAT and PSAT scores allowed me to be a National Merit Finalist and I am confident in the strategies and skills needed to do well on these tests. I went to TJ for High School and know the ins and outs of the entrance test for that school as well.
My method of tutoring focuses on helping the student understand the material they are confused with and can work with all types of learners. I apply both skills based and content based tutoring to help students learn the material so that they can not only recall facts, but use their knowledge in a variety of different contexts whether it be word problems, analogies or simple math equations.
