I have over 12 years of tutoring experience, have been formally trained as a tutor, and have even won a National Tutor of the Year award for my work with one education company. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Washington with degrees in Linguistics and Psychology, and have some graduate school experience in English literature from Rutgers University in New Jersey.
I have worked with students ranging from 1st grade to adults, and most often tutor students in Math (from grade school up to trigonometry/Pre-Calculus) and English. I tutor very interactively, and focus on customizing my tutoring for the student's particular needs. I can help with homework, study skills, or enrichment activities to go beyond the classroom. I particularly enjoy helping students discover that they actually CAN be good at the subject that is challenging them, provided they work hard and ask lots of questions.
I am also one of those rare individuals who love standardized tests, and I have tutoring experience in the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, ISEE, and SSAT. I have tutored all components of each of the tests, and have scored at least in the 95th percentile on all of them. No two students are the same, so I customize each test prep session according to the students needs, goals, and time available.
