EducationMaster of Arts in Counseling at Wake Forest University
ExperienceI have taken coursework up to and including third semester Calculus, and scored in the 99th percentile on the GRE (the equivalent of the SAT for graduate school). An experienced teacher and private tutor, I would be happy to tutor you or your child in Algebra, Geometry, or any math or problem-solving related subject. I also specialize in test preparation, including for the SAT, ACT, and GRE. I am comfortable tutoring gifted students as well as students with special needs, such as ADD and ADHD.
Your choice to tutor with me will be rewarded not only with a better grade, but also confidence, understanding, and a sense of accomplishment. I recognize that everyone has a different learning history and is coming to the table with unique strengths, difficulties, and goals. Therefore whatever your age or level of ability, you can be sure that I will listen to you and cater my tutoring to your individual needs. If you're feeling lost or would like to start at the beginning, I can provide direction, structure, and lead you down the quickest path to your goal. On the other hand, if you would like help with a particular problem area, I will answer any questions you have, provide support, and demonstrate step-by-step solutions. In short, I believe that tutoring is an interactive process, and I will be regularly assessing your satisfaction and our progress towards your goal.
I also believe that there is no limit to the amount of progress you can make. Your goal can be a near-perfect score, a passing grade, or anything in between -- whatever the case may be, in time we'll get there. There is no mystery or magic to becoming a great problem-solver. All it takes is practice and a good mentor! I will help you to maximize the effectiveness of your studying by offering you guidance and by teaching you strategies, tips and tricks that will accelerate your learning and improve your score.
I will be the teacher you always wanted -- making things simple and easy whenever possible, and telling you exactly what you need to know to succeed. For every problem we solve together, I will show you how to generalize your knowledge so that you can solve ten kinds of problems just like it. I also understand
that confidence and positive thinking can be just as important to your success as practice and know-how. This is why I will encourage you when you are struggling, congratulate you on your successes, provide you with constructive feedback, and give you a workable approach for every kind of problem so you feel prepared and can do your best.
HobbiesI like taking walks, talking about the future, appreciating beauty, and eating good food.
