## Great Experience

Christian, 44 lessons with KenyaKenya tutored my daughter for the SAT and we had a great experience. First off, we had left things to the very last minute and we needed a solution in place fast. Kenya was super responsive to our initial communications and really worked hard to make my daughter comfortable in this new learning atmosphere. Kenya helped put the focus on the right competency areas as well as the best tactics for taking the test. The results were a 210 point improvement in her score and a more confident and...

Background:

Tutoring has been passion of mine for over 5 years. I'm great at taking complicated concepts and reintroducing them in more palatable forms. I love being able to draw from everyday real-world examples to better convey physics and mathematics concepts to students. I worked as a Supplemental Instruction Leader for the Student Success Centers at both the University of South Carolina and the University of North Florida for a combined total of 3 years. I was responsible for organizing...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I have 2 years of experience tutoring high school students in algebra. I like to focus on helping students to identify the specific type of problem they are looking at and compartmentalize their approach in systematic steps. With algebra, I also like to use various real world examples to help students better understand the numbers as well as realize the usefulness of what they're learning.

I've been a calculus tutor for 5 years. I also have experience as a Supplemental Instruction Leader for calculus where I facilitated some group study sessions and some one on one study sessions for college calculus students. With mathematics, I like to help students with a systematic approach to solving problems coupled with an understanding for why each step is necessary.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

I've tutored students in geometry for over 5 years, including students in Honors Geometry courses. I also recognize the importance of providing visuals, especially in geometry, for students who benefit from seeing content presented in multiple ways. Furthermore, I have experience with group tutoring for geometry and in applying collaborative learning techniques to make the material more palatable and fun for students.

Physics,
#### Physics

I've tutored both algebra-based and calculus-based physics for 5 years. I also have experience as a Supplemental Instruction Leader for calculus-based physics where I facilitated some group study sessions and some one on one study sessions for college physics students. I like to teach students to look for key words in physics problems that help them to identify which equation(s) to use as well as what assumptions are necessary to start the problem. Furthermore, I like to encourage an understanding of the material rather than a memorization of steps.

SAT Math,
#### SAT Math

I've been tutoring SAT math for the past year and am very familiar with the exam. I scored a 790 on my own SAT Math test. As an SAT tutor I like to highlight the consistencies between similar types of problems that are found on the exam and introduce a systematic method for solving those types of problems.

Kenya has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **1 question** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Fantastic Experience

Kenya came to the lesson prepared and helped my son more in one hour than I believed possible. Just one tutoring session gave him confidence that he hasn’t had in ages. We immediately scheduled more sessions with her.

Melissa, 3 lessons with Kenya

## Very helpful and responsive!

Kenya is helping my son with Physics. After the first session he sounded so much more confident than he has all semester. I highly recommend Kenya!

Danielle, 3 lessons with Kenya

## Wonderful Tutor

Kenya is a wonderful tutor. My daughter loved the session with her and she also learned a lot from her. My daughter said Kenya is very patient, respectful, and knowledgeable about the topic. I am booking the 2nd session with her and would strongly recommend her to others.

Shimei, 10 lessons with Kenya

## Math Honors

Kenya was extremely responsive and quickly put my teen at ease! She earned a A on her first quiz after just one session. We are please with the process and look forward to the next session.

Natalie, 1 lesson with Kenya

## Relatable, kind, and brilliant!

This is a mom writing the review for my HS senior. With the way scheduluing works, she had been away from Math for a full year. Returning to Math 4, she found that she was rusty on many of the concepts and was struggling. With working with Kenya just one time, she just earned a 96 on her most recent quiz! We will be continuing through the semester to keep things in a happy direction. Thank you Kenya!!

Cherie, 3 lessons with Kenya

## Fantastic tutor

First 2 lessons went very well. Kenya is very kind & patient and gets straight to the point with transforming complex assignments in a simple way so my daughter can understand it. Explained very clearly and helped her rebuilding her confidence - very pleased:-)

Daniela, 2 lessons with Kenya

## She is remarkable!

Kenya worked with my daughter on a honor physics final review packet. She is patience, flexible and knowledgable! Thank you! We hope to use her again for SAT Prep this summer!

Joanne, 3 lessons with Kenya

## Great!

Super organized and punctual! I took the GRE this week and I felt prepared for the quantitative section thanks to Kenya!

Tanner, 6 lessons with Kenya

## Awesome!

It was a real pleasure working with Kenya. She was so accommodating and patient! We have worked with many tutors over the years and we enjoyed the experience. More importantly, Kenya was very flexible and knowledgeable.
