About Torrey

My goals as a tutor revolve around uncovering teaching methods that work best for every individual. In keeping with that goal, I monitor new academic research in the cognitive & education fields on a weekly basis for different methodologies. I have been a private tutor since my freshman year of college in 2009 and have tutored more than 90 students in the last five years. Because I am motivated by my own acquisition of knowledge, I have been able to tutor in many different subjects.

I specialize in standardized test preparation including all sections of the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and ASVAB. I achieved the highest SAT score in my graduating class and was awarded an academic scholarship for my efforts. For military applicants, I scored within the 98th percentile nationwide on the ASVAB and have been recommended by many students for my tutoring abilities in that area.

My strongest tutoring subjects include the topics that I have tutored for at the college-level including general mathematics (pre-algebra, algebra I/II, geometry, trigonometry, integral and differential calculus, differential equations) and descriptive and inferential statistics with the statistical software SPSS, SAS, and R.

In addition to the topics I tutor for at the college-level and below, I have also tutored the following at the K-12 level: English, biology, chemistry, physical science, and physics.

I am well-versed in differing tutoring methods of students with various mental disadvantages including ADD/ADHD, Asperger's/Autism spectrum, and dyslexia/dysgraphia. I can provide patient guidance to all students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

SAS

In my undergraduate institution, SAS is heavily emphasized within the statistics department. In pursuit of my statistics and data analysis minor I have completed eight to ten projects utilizing SAS. On June 1st 2015 I will be eligible to apply for Base SAS certification and intend to complete further certifications after that point.
