My specialty is mathematics, but I also tutor ELA and test prep for the SAT, ACT, SHSAT, and GED. As a mathematics educator, I use many real world applications in mathematics to help enlightened the minds of young people. My ultimate goal for my students is to gain an appreciation for mathematics. When I tutor ELA, I put an extra emphasis on being an active reader and using context clues to better comprehension. As a result, students will be more confident and their scores will improve.
