Bio

Did some tutoring in high school and undergrad, primarily in Math courses. Then worked as a tutor full-time helping with AVID courses in both the Lawrence and Overland Park School Districts, and working with students directly on Math coursework and standardized test prep. Subjects covered included Algebra I and II, College Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Trigonometry, ACT, SAT, and LSAT.

Did some tutoring in high school and undergrad, primarily in Math courses. Then worked as a tutor full-time helping with AVID courses in both the Lawrence and Overland Park School Districts, and working with students directly on Math coursework and standardized test prep. Subjects covered included Algebra I and II, College Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Trigonometry, ACT, SAT, and LSAT.

I enjoy using my familiarity with the subject material to help students improve their grades and meet their standardized test goals.

I have taken all of these courses and done well in them. I am also used to working with students at a range of levels in the subject, so I know how to adapt the session focus based on what the student is struggling with more specifically. For standardized tests I scored 32 on the ACT and 2280 on the SAT. My Math sub-section scores were 34 and 760. I have worked with students who improved to hit similar scores on their tests.

I am happy to discuss any of my experience before scheduling any lessons. I have significant flexibility for now on meeting times.

SAT Reading

During the year I was tutoring full time, one of my main focus areas was the SAT reading section. I helped students focus on how to approach the passages strategically to avoid problems with the time constraints and to have better recall. I am familiar with the test materials that College Board has made available and have also helped students with Reading sections for other standardized tests so I know areas that are often covered.

I took calculus in high school so I covered all of the math that appears on this test. I have also worked with students specifically on each of the math courses that are covered by this section. During the year I tutored the SAT I worked with students at a wide range of knowledge in the subject, so I am comfortable with both the students aiming for a perfect or near perfect score and the students who do not want Math to harm their overall score.

I took BC Calculus in High School so I learned all of the material that could show up on this part of the test. I have both worked with students on ACT Math directly and on each of the individual subjects that are covered on the test. And the students I worked with have been at different ability levels so I am comfortable working with someone who is aiming for a very high score as well as someone who is more concerned with math not hurting their overall score.
