Standardized test preparation is all about gaining competency across a broad range of topics and being able to express that competency in a high pressure environment. My test prep tutoring style involves using a building blocks method over time using a plethora of practice problems.

After the lesson, I send the student some practice problems directed at those highlighted topics. I then ask the student to work through the practice problems and write down anything they think will help them so [more]

It is much easier to do something you like than to do something you hate. Secondly, I strive to present all material in the simplest and most... [more]

Hello, I am a UK student majoring in Mathematics. I am early in the phase of major studies, but have been asked by classmates in college Algebra to tutor them.
