FTCE/SAT/ACT/GRE Education Expert
Your success is my goal. I love tutoring; to me, it means making a difference in someone's - your - future. You see, my students reach or exceed their goals - in fact, two of my recent SAT students are two of the top scorers in our area: 1580 (2019) and 1560 (2018)! (I’m also a top scorer, but it’s not about my ability to do well on these tests; it’s about how I can help you do well that matters).

Your success is my goal. I love tutoring; to me, it means making a difference in someone's - your - future. You see, my students reach or exceed their goals - in fact, two of my recent SAT students are two of the top scorers in our area: 1580 (2019) and 1560 (2018)! (I’m also a top scorer, but it’s not about my ability to do well on these tests; it’s about how I can help you do well that matters). All of my FTCE (GK/PET/El Ed/etc.) students have walked out with PASS! All of my SAT, ACT, and GRE students significantly increase their scores! Whether in person or online, I coach my students to success! For me, there's little that compares to sharing the joy when my students tell me their GRE or SAT scores, that they got the 'Pass,' or have been accepted to the college of their choice! I love what I do, and I'm super proud of all of my students.
Since 2008, I have been providing private tutoring for high school and college students in a variety of subject areas such as Alg 1, Alg 2, Trig, Geometry, English, Language Arts, etc. as well as test prep. With regards to GRE, FTCE, TABE, SAT, ACT, PERT, and other test preparation, I have helped my students get into their desired schools by helping them with understanding/practicing on the specific test formats, reaching score goals, improving school grades, improving college resumes and application essays, etc. I also provide ongoing support and encouragement throughout the entire process, as well as provide tips on ways to reduce test anxiety. Every one of my students is unique, and each has differing needs, strengths, and weaknesses, so I tailor each session to best meet my students' needs and goals. I also continually work to improve what I do so that I stay current and can provide the most effective test-taking tips and strategies. I’m also a FL-certified teacher (who has taken and passed the FTCEs, too). My students consistently achieve success!
Why I do what I do: My son (as well as many others) has difficulty in traditional classroom settings, and sometimes he doesn't understand or he needs a little more help. But, the teachers keep moving forward, whether or not he's 'getting it,' and as he gets older, classwork has gotten more difficult. After years of hoping someone else would figure out how to help him (and other students) truly reach their academic potential, I decided to DO something about it. I became that person. Now, I use out-of-the-box, evidence-based learning techniques and approaches so that students not only learn, but also gain confidence in their own abilities. I love what I do. Guiding students, alleviating some of their and their families' stress, and sharing in the excitement of D's to A's and acceptance letters feels really, really great.
I have a Master's of Education degree and a BA in Psychology. Thank you for reading my profile! I look forward to hearing from and working with you! :-)
