My abilities are strong in tutoring all academic subjects in high stake exams such as SAT English, CASHEE English, ACT, Subject Tests and AP courses. I passed the RICA Exam (Reading Instruction Comprehension Assessment) given by the state of California, so I am aware of strategies to teach all the facets of the English language. For each student I tutor, I devise a lesson plan specially designed for mastery and success of the subject matter. At the end of each tutoring session I send a progress report to the student and their parents via email. I work on long and short term academic solutions with regards to curriculum and I work closely with other teachers. My teaching philosophy is that every student can achieve and succeed with the proper tools. I learn about my students so that I can help them learn in their own personal learning styles.

Eileen was able to come to my rescue with only one week left for me to study for the GRE. She had a flexible schedule and worked around mine very willingly. I only had time for a one hour tutor session, and yet she helped my score get higher than I actually thought possible! She had many useful tricks for me, and more test taking skills than I had expected. I would recommend her any day. Really great with essay writing especially.
Our first meeting with Eileen was great.
She worked with the kids and explained to us what her strategy would be if she were to tutor my kids. She went over details, patiently listened to our concerns, gave positive encouragement to the kids, laid out her plan & explained it very methodically.
After Eileen started to help my daughter with English honors, my daughter is feeling less stressed with her class. Eileen explains and teaches the method to write essays very well. She is the best.
Very detailed and organized tutor. Knowledgeable in the topic (AP Euro) and committed to the student success. My son is happy to have her as a tutor and is making good progress in his learning.
Eileen has been tutoring my 11th grade son on SAT critical reading and writing. She is very friendly and worked my son's pace and he improved a lot. He likes to continue working with her through his SAT test. I strongly recommend her.
She was extremely helpful and was very patient. I was helped according to my unique skills and needs. She helped me improve a great deal on my GRE essays in the short span of one week. In addition, she worked really well around my schedule and responded very quickly to my phone calls and emails. Overall, I had an extremely productive and enjoyable experience with Eileen.
Our daughter needed to complete extra essays in Economics and also needed help with English to improve her grades. Eileen understand the urgency and came to the rescue. She is a very knowledgeable and helpful tutor and my daughter had no problem understanding and learning from her. Will use Eileen for my other children as well in the future.
She gave my son a great help in ACT test. My son's ACT score improves a lot with her help.
Before first meeting Eileen, we had a few conversations via email and over the phone about what my goals were for the test I was taking and how we were going to prepare for it. I was studying for the Social Science CSET's and she had taken it as well and knows how hard they can be. But, after first meeting her, she has been a wonderful help to getting me ready for the exam. She provided great resources and tips and tricks when taking the test. If you want someone who can provide you with knowledge of a exam and tips to taking a hard exam, then I would recommend calling Eileen.
I treat all my students with respect and give them the encouragement they need to be successful. They are all unique, have different needs, and learn in different ways. I want them to exceed their own capabilities and I want to teach them how to carry their skills over to their lives after formal education. I care about and value each student. They teach me how to be a better tutor and enrich my lives so that I learn better techniques in reaching them attain their goals.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Study skills are methods to increase a student's ability to strategize information to help to study smarter and retain information over a long period of time. Study skills are important tools in all subjects because it teaches the student how to use the knowledge they acquire combined with their own prior knowledge. Study skills are prerequisites to perform third level thinking on problem solving. Study skills increase the students ability to master material because they have the ability and the tools to process information and apply them to build on new situations. Personal mastery of materials mimic life skills; it is a proven method for use of individual strengths to prepare to learn new material through their own learning style.
