About Sanders

Hi! I am an experienced tutor of 4 years, and currently an undergraduate student at Carleton College studying cognitive science.

I am very experienced in tutoring elementary school kids in math and reading, having served as a private one-on-one tutor for two years in addition to tutoring in the Northfield public schools for one year. I am also experienced in tutoring middle and high school students in math, English, history, and science through working with the Northfield TORCH (Tackling Obstacles and Raising College Hopes) program. I cover all math topics up to precalculus.

The most rewarding part about tutoring is helping a student develop learning strategies, and seeing them use these strategies to master concepts and tackle problems on their own. Thus, my tutoring style is very student-focused and relatively hands-off. I will explain concepts initially and step in to diagnose, clarify, and provide feedback on the student's work, but I encourage students to develop their own strategies and "learn how to learn." This is will be achieved through problem sets and homework, informal discussions, and opportunities for the student to explain and "teach" the material themselves.

I have taken undergraduate level math courses up to linear algebra, and am very experienced in tutoring elementary school-level math and middle school-level math through private tutoring and public school tutoring programs. I cover all math topics up to precalculus.

I am an undergraduate cognitive science major, and have completed 9 psychology and cognitive science courses with an in-major GPA of 3.7. I can tutor high school psychology and AP psychology test prep, in addition to most undergraduate level psychology courses.

I have three years of experience tutoring elementary school kids in reading, from first grade through fifth grade.

I am available for tutoring from 8 AM to 9 PM, and can travel to students in Minneapolis and St. Paul or meet them online (Twin Cities suburbs may not be as feasible since I rely on bike and public transit for transportation). My base rate is $35/hr for in-person lessons and $20/hr for online lessons or lessons that take place within a 1 mile radius of me.
