About Tristain


Bio

Tutoring should reach further than teaching a subject. The goal of a tutor is not to simply fill the void that a teacher has not been able to breech, but to go beyond that space and erect platforms of success and understanding. My methods teach students to understand their subject matter and to assess their exam for its strength and weaknesses.

This year I was honored with being selected as part of the All-Washington 2013-14 Academic team, and was accepted to Columbia University in New York....

Tutoring should reach further than teaching a subject. The goal of a tutor is not to simply fill the void that a teacher has not been able to breech, but to go beyond that space and erect platforms of success and understanding. My methods teach students to understand their subject matter and to assess their exam for its strength and weaknesses.

This year I was honored with being selected as part of the All-Washington 2013-14 Academic team, and was accepted to Columbia University in New York. I tutor part-time, paying my way through college. I have worked with over 250 students in the past two years and have seen amazing score increases in my student's work.

I've always excelled at taking standardized testing, and I really love helping others improve their scores. I specialize in helping students with the GRE, ACT, SAT, and ASVAB. I scored perfect on my first ASVAB exam, and I've been able to score perfect on repeat exams of the GRE, ACT, and SAT.

I meet with students from all over the world. I use online tutoring software that makes tutoring efficient, current, and convenient. The software allows us to talk in real time (just like we're on Skype or on the phone), and we see and work the same problems together. I've taught in classrooms, over the kitchen table, and online. In my experience the online platform is by far the best. We cover more material faster, it's much more convenient for our schedules, and I can email you PDFs of all of the problems that we did. We also video record our session so you can watch them again and again for free.

My lessons are structured and thorough. I issue pre-lesson homework, follow-up homework, and I offer unlimited email support at no additional cost. Be prepared to work hard and score high!

Awesome Tutor

Tristan worked with my daughter to improve her ACT scores. He was well prepared and worked great with out daughter. I am hoping in three years he will still be tutoring, so he can work my younger daughter.

Like the Online Tutoring with Tristain

My son loves being able to log on, see the same screen Tristain sees, do lessons with him and hear each other talk. Tremendous program Tristain! We love being able to stay at home, as driving from our house at night would not be good for any of us.

Hi Jamie, It was great to hear about the scores today! A great score will take your son to places he has never thought of going. Congratulations and good luck in the future.

Helped Improve ACT Math Score!

Tristain helped my daughter improve her ACT math score, her confidence, and test taking strategies. My teenager liked his demeanor and found him very approachable. You'd do well to have Tristain's help for you son or daughter too.

Teri, 8 lessons with Tristain

Very Thorough

Tristain knows what he's talking about. Makes you think in ways you didn't realize. Absolutely a fantastic teacher and subject matter expert of material.

Sipriano, 12 lessons with Tristain

Great Tutor!

Tristain is very professional and engaged in helping my son focus and get the help he needs. I highly recommend Tristain and am very happy we found him.

Sandy (Levy), 17 lessons with Tristain

Amazing tutor!

I have done 5 sessions with Tristain and within those 5 sessions my math scores on my practice ASVAB increased by 50 percent! The program is easy to use and he was very patient and explained problems very well! I HIGHLY recommend tutoring with him!

Great experience for my son

Tristain provided a great learning experience for our 12 year old son as he prepared for an early introduction to the SAT this weekend. We have used him for several sessions over the past couple of months. He exhibits the knowledge, patience and charisma to inspire his students to higher levels of understanding. We intend to gift our son with occasional follow-up classes over the next year. The video conference sessions identify and provide assistance in only the areas most needed by our son...something no number of training manuals or tapes can achieve.

Teryle, 14 lessons with Tristain

Extremely positive experience

So far, my son has been very encouraged and this has been a positive experience for us. We appreciate the virtual learning environment, and we are anticipating an excellent outcome on the SATs he is taking this weekend. Very nice tutor; good with the parents, also. Recommend highly. Thanks.

Beyond expectations

Tristain took on a challenge when he started tutoring me. He took on a 20 years out of school and chronic weakness in math individual with only 3 weeks to prepare for GRE. He was successful in preparing me for the challenge and I am able to proceed with my graduate application. Tristain knows the test and required material well, is articulate, punctual and organized, as well as accessible. I would recommend Tristain to any friends facing the GRE and needing help.
