About Echo

I have been tutoring students in Math and Psychology for 25 years and I have been teaching for 10 years. I am college professor with expertise in Psychology and Statistics. I have a fairly adaptive tutoring style that fits most learning styles. As part of the tutoring process I help students become more self-aware of their optimal learning style and study habits. Often students are unaware of their own learning style or find themselves in a class structure that conflicts with their learning style. This is not always the case as many students find that they are struggling with the material itself. Once we have identified where the problem lies we can focus on study strategies and material comprehension.

My favorite part of working with students is getting them to those "aha!" moments and watching their confidence increase over time. I have an intuitive and approachable style that helps students comfortably ask questions and work through their own thought process. I am patient and thorough in my sessions with students and, in most cases, I am able to put myself in the student's perspective which really helps me understand where they are getting stuck and how best to explain a process to them.

Approved subjects

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.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using MS Windows in my personal and professional since starting graduate school in 1999. I am a currently a college professor. I have used MS Windows to access and create various word files, excel spreadsheets, & PowerPoint presentations and to perform numerous online activities. I have observed changes to the MS Windows format over the years and have spent a fair amount of time troubleshooting issues with internet connections, printer and device set up, and file corruption. I am also knowledgeable regarding various backup and virus protection options and requirements.
