While most tutors simply focus on questions and providing answers, my goal as your tutor is to make sure you fully understand the concepts surrounding your questions. If you're not comfortable with a topic we'll work on it from every possible angle until it clicks for you. As a student that originally struggled a great deal academically, my techniques and emphasis on patience have been highly effective in bringing up the grades of struggling students. Be sure to browse my reviews and ratings from previous students!

If there's a topic you're interested in but it isn't listed below contact me and I am confident I can help with it.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have extensive experience teaching young children for years at both school districts and after school programs. I love working with children and feel confident that I can provide a strong foundation for their understanding of academic topics. The key to being successful in teaching younger children is to understand their frame of reference for a topic, and then converting the new topic in such a way as to feel familiar to them. These techniques and others reduce anxiety and promote confidence.

Test Preparation

STAAR,

STAAR

The STAAR Exams range from elementary all the way up to 9th grade. I have not only mastered all of these subjects and their courses, but I have been tutoring various students for their respective STAAR exams for much of my time as a tutor. Many of the concepts taught are fundamental to the grade level and all levels of the STAAR exam cover concepts equivalent to or are a lower degree than the lessons I have previously tutored for. As an undergraduate I took mathematics courses up to Calculus 3, so I have a strong grasp on the fundamentals of math leading up to that, all of which are covered in the STAAR exams. Additionally I have been a regular tutor for years so I have a solid foundation of walking students step by step through these fundamentals. Beyond the mathematics portion there is a reading portion which I would also be excellent at tutoring for as well. I have a background in the literary arts with my Minor in Creative Writing, and I have helped students in standardized tests ranging all the way up to the MCAT.

Excellent communicator. Good insights.

We appreciated the great communication and assessment of my daughter’s proficiency with Algebra 2. He helped her understand how to work through the specific areas my daughter needed input and helped with her confidence.
