Featured Review:

## Very knowledgeable in her subjects!

Laurie, 102 lessons with VioletViolet was very knowledgeable in Chemistry and was able to help my son better understand the concepts so he could apply them to various test questions. I also like that she is very good with math because there are Algebra concepts that overlap with Chemistry.

I have a BSc in Chemistry with an emphasis in Biochemistry and minors in Biology and Mathematics. I also have an MS in Environmental Health and an MS in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in environmental studies. I have tutored extensively at the middle, high school, and community college levels for basic skills, composition, mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and arithmetic), chemistry, physics, and biology. I taught freshman chemistry at the college level. I have effectively...

GRE
#### GRE

Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a three hour forty five minute, multiple choice, and multi stage test required by most graduate schools. There are six sections to the test. The first section contains two essays. The next five sections cover verbal ability (reading comprehension, text completion, and sentence equivalence) and quantitative ability (problem solving, quantitative comparison, and numeric entry).
GRE verbal part of the exam tests vocabulary primarily in context, and with extensive reading comprehension. GRE math (quantitative) tests basic math concepts up to Geometry 1. Most commonly tested topics include basic algebra, geometry, averages, ratios, number properties, exponent and sequence roots, and numeric problem solving. There are also two essays. One will give you the argument and you will have to evaluate it. The other tests your ability to formulate convincing argument based upon a topic selected from two choices.
Every skill and content area tested on the GRE can be learned and mastered. With time, practice, and the right coaching you can master the GRE. I tutored students on the skill and content areas on the GRE so that they can improve their test performance and scores.

Proofreading
#### Proofreading

Proofreading is reading to detect and correct production errors in the text. Typically a proofreader looks at increments of text for grammatical or typographical errors, content and sentence structure; or compare written text to typeset copy, and then mark any errors using standard proofreading marks.
I proofread class compositions, masters’ theses, simple and complex projects on the job which were submitted to management.

Reading,
#### Reading

Reading is a complex cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive comprehension. It is a means of communication, language acquisition, and also sharing of information and ideas. It is a complex interaction between the text and the reader which is shaped by the reader’s prior knowledge, experiences, and attitude. Readers use a variety of reading strategies to assist with the translation of symbols into sounds or visual representation and comprehension.
Reading is usually an individual activity, although on occasion a person will read out loud for the benefit of other listeners. Most reading is either of the printed word from ink or toner on paper, such as a book, magazine, newspaper or notebook; or of electronic displays such as computer displays, television, mobile phones, or e-readers.
Reading is an intensive process in which the eye quickly moves to assimilate text. Reading skill (literacy) is the ability to use the symbols of a writing system. This ability is used so you are able to interpret the information symbols represent, and then re-create those same symbols so that others can derive the same meaning. Sub-lexical reading (teaching reading by associating characters or groups of characters with sounds, or by using phonics) and Lexical reading (acquiring words or phrases without attention to the characters or groups of characters that compose them or by using whole language learning) are processes which contribute to how we learn to read.
There are several methods of reading and some of them are:
a. Subvocalized reading – combines sight reading with internal sounding of the words.
b. Speed reading – a collection of methods for increasing reading speed without reduction in comprehension or retention.
c. Proofreading – reading for the purpose of detecting typographical errors. One can also learn to do this rapidly.
d. Rereading – reading a book more than once.
e. Structure-Proposition-Evaluation (SPE) method – Writing is read in three passes: (1) for the structure of the w

Instruction was in a freshman classroom setting and individual tutoring. I have a BSc in Chemistry with an emphasis in Biochemistry and minors in Biology and Mathematics.
Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms which are defined as any living organisms that is either a single cell (unicellular), a cell cluster, or has no cells at all (acellular). The branches of microbiology can be classified into pure and applied sciences (e.g. epidemiology / medical, industrial, microbial, food, agricultural, environmental, and water microbiology). Microbiology also can be classified based on taxonomy, such as bacteriology (study of bacteria), mycology (study of fungi), protozoology (study of protozoa), phycology (study of algae), parasitology (study of parasites), immunology (study of immune system), virology (study of viruses), and nematology (study of nematodes.
Microbiological procedures usually must be aseptic, and a variety of tools (such as light microscope) are used in combination with stains and dyes. Most commonly used stains are called basic dyes. Two types of basic dyes are simple stains and differential stains. Simple stains consist of one dye and are used to identify the shape and cell arrangement of bacteria. Examples of simple stains are methylene blue, safranin, and crystal violet. Differential stains use two or more dyes and help to distinguish between two or more organisms, or two or different parts of the organism. Types of differential stains are gram, acid fast, negative and flagella.

I tutored students in SAT Reading so that they can improve their test performance and scores.

#### TEAS

TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is a multiple choice exam that measures entry level skills and abilities of nursing program applicants by testing basic knowledge in Science, Mathematics, Reading, and English. TEAS exam academic content areas are as follows: Mathematics–51 mins. to answer 34 questions; Science–66 mins. to answer 54 questions; Reading-58 mins. to answer 48 questions; English and Language Usage-34 mins. to answer 34 questions. This is a total of 209 minutes to answer 170 questions. Only 150 questions are scored. The additional 20 questions are used as testing for future versions of the test. These questions are not identified apart from the 150 questions which are scored. Therefore the scored questions are: Mathematics (30 questions), Science (48 questions), Reading (42 questions), and English and Language (30 questions).
I have an extensive academic and tutoring background in Mathematics, Chemistry, and Biology. I tutored students in the following subjects in order to improve understanding, use of information, content skills, and performance.
The topics taught in the following subjects contain the information which is on the TEAS Math and Science test.
(1)Math (Some of the topics are addition, subtraction, multiplication, use of whole numbers, negative numbers, fractions, decimals and percentages; counting, fractions, ratios, word problems, and rounding rules)
(2)Prealgebra (Topics which were taught include study of numbers, ratios, proportions, percentiles, factors, and fractions). Algebra (Some topics are probability and statistics, functions, development and use of graphs and tables, identities, equations, and mathematical equivalents). Algebra 2 (Topics covered are probability and statistics, ratios, functions, graphs, identities, and equations)
(3)Geometry (Topics include the study of the properties of shapes to give the results of length and perimeter, logical connections such as and, or, if – then and the use of information from tables and graphs to solve problems)
4)Scien

## Knowledgeable and patient

Really made sure I understood the material and was very meticulous in her explanation. She even followed up with me about additional study resources. She was exceptional at breaking down the material and filling in the gaps

## Best Knowledgeable tutor!

Violet was very helpful and considerate in making me successful by improving my math and english skills. Based on my experiences, I could not have asked for a better tutor. I've learned a great amount of material pertaining to the ASVAB Vocabulary English, Arithmetic Reasoning, Mathematics Knowledge and much more while I was with Violet. I highly recommend to anyone who is struggling with any subject of the ASVAB test; to consider Violet as a tutor, as you will learn a whole lot more to what is entitled to taking the ASVAB and what to focus on for your future career. Best Regards, Jarriel B.

## Knowledgable & Experienced

Classes with Violet have been so worthwhile! Violet has an amazing way of breaking things down so that they are understandable, and always keeps it light and fun. I studied for the ASVAB test for four months and was successfully able to score a 76 percentile. There was a total of 9 subjects that was required for the test and she did wonderfully going over them one at a time. Her teaching methods are great. Very clear and concise. Doesn’t waste your time explaining meaningless background information and always lectures with the intent to help you understand the material. She helped me understand content for multiple courses and is one of the best lecturers that I’ve had. Recommending her is a no brainer. She's amazing at what she does! Her passion and dedication is beyond words! Thank you for getting me through this hard test, I honestly would have never passed if it was not for your help! Thank you so much once again!

## Gives great prep and follow up info

Once we were locked in for our first season, Violet sent my son pre-work to do to so that he would be prepared. She reviewed everything with him and gave him feedback. She then sent me a summary of what they covered and what she plans to do to help him improve. I'm looking forward to my son continuing lessons with her and increasing his knowledge.

## Focused, professional, and Expert Tutor

Violet took time outside of our tutoring session to prepare thoroughly and ensure that she was ready to address every area of concern I had with the G.R.E. During the session, we flew through all the concepts, not because she was going too fast, but because she was doing such a good job explaining each concept that we were able to move through everything very quickly. She also offered to grade my essays outside of our session, which I am very grateful for. Between her thorough understanding of the material on the G.R.E. and her dedication to excellent instruction, I feel very confident that my score will be much higher this time.
