When I was in high school I worked during the summer as a part-time receptionist at a seasonal medical office. One of the other receptionists was studying to take her LSAT and kept some of her preparation books in the desk. I was bored one day and decided to look through them. Before I knew it, I was doing the Logical Reasoning questions for fun

Study Skills
Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have been helping students prepare for standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, PSAT and SSAT for 5 years and have been extremely successful with helping them raise their scores. I review the basic math needed as well as teach test-taking shortcuts and strategies. References available upon request.

I took algebra I as an 8th grader long before the middle school algebra movement. I have 7+ years teaching the subject and can virtually solve problems in my sleep. I scored a 100% on the certification test and did all of the work in my head. Due to my vast experience with the subject I possess the ability to get inside the head of each student, view the material from the student's perspective and adjust my teaching accordingly utilizing a variety of teaching methods.

Textbooks tend to have different definitions of Algebra 2, Trigonometry and Precalculus. Therefore, I have seen certain topics and concepts covered in Algebra 2 in one school, but in Precalculus in another. I have experience tutoring all three subjects and am familiar with the vast majority of topics and concepts that may be covered in any of the courses. Furthermore, if I am not familiar with a specific strategy or concept I am usually able to understand the material after looking at a few examples and answers.

As a ninth grader, I hated geometry. In particular, I did not see the point of proofs. Therefore, I can sympathize with students who do not understand or like them because they have not been taught how to think in the way that is required to write a proof. As I have gotten older, I have learned to love proofs and have discovered tools such as Geometer's Sketchpad that help make them easier for students.

Many students are taught Pre-Algebra by simply learning rules without truly understanding why they work. I speak from experience having taught Algebra I for the past 5 years that this leads to problems later on as they struggle to recall and/or apply what they have previously learned. Therefore, I work with students to make sure that they acquire both procedural and conceptual knowledge.

I worked as a homeroom teacher or advisor for 9 out of my 10 years in the classroom. This often included working one-on-one with students to help them improve their study habits and develop their own personalized learning style, as well as whole class discussions and demonstrations of various study techniques including using a calendar, breaking up assignments into small pieces and various note-taking strategies.
