Tutoring middle school, high school, and college students in Math, Statistics, Spanish, French, English, ESL, SAT prep, ACT prep, GMAT prep, and GRE prep.
I especially enjoy working with students who are struggling with math skills, find Spanish to be totally "Greek", face a Statistics requirement for a degree, have trouble showing their true skills when taking tests, or are totally committed to raising those entrance exam scores. I have also worked extensively with students who do not speak English as a first language.
The joy I find in working as a private tutor comes from the unique one-on-one relationship which is formed with each individual student. Each of us learns in our own unique style. Once the learning style of a specific student is assessed, we are then able to focus on his/her strengths when addressing the material at hand. I love getting acquainted with each individual person; this makes the time we spend together much more efficient and effective.
One of the things that sets me apart from other tutors is the fact that we focus on YOUR goals. It is important for me to understand the client's goals and aspirations. Our sessions can then be tailored to these objectives.
When working with students, I especially enjoy helping those who do not speak English as a first language. I, too, have been a student in a foreign culture. I recognize that it can be a particular challenge for those who have chosen to do this. Because I specifically appreciate words, language structure and methods of expression, I take pleasure in assisting those who choose to pursue studies in these areas. I, too, am a lifelong student of foreign language. My experience as a tutor includes work with Vietnamese, Russian, Mexican, Japanese, Thai, Chinese, Ukrainian, and Taiwanese students. Often, when working with them, we have found that the difficulties are not about intellectual ability, but more often they relate to understanding of language, gestures, or other cultural phenomena. What a joy it has been to share American language and culture with them, while learning a bit about their own. We have always been successful in reaching their academic goals.
As a math tutor with a Master's Degree in Statistics, I have been tutoring Algebra students in the local area for a number of years. I have been certified by WyzAnt in both Algebra I and Algebra II, and have worked recently with students studying matrices. Between the two of us, we can certainly get the job done!
I have been operating a full-time tutoring service in this region for the last 10 years, and have worked with both high school and college students, not only in their chosen fields, but in study skills and exam prep as well. I have trained in study skills at the local community college and have also studied multiple intelligences techniques(NLP) and self-talk improvement techniques.
