Sciences, Test Prep, English & Math, Literature, and Biology

I'm experienced in tutoring students in the reading section of the SAT. I consider reading comprehension and passage analysis a forte of sorts and transfer that understanding to the student. I use techniques such as seeing through author and questioner intent, all of which helped me to score an 800/800 on this section when I took the exam. These same techniques are as useful and effective for the new SAT and will improve consistency and performance on the SAT. My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refi [more]

Experienced English and German Tutor (native speaker)

I have studied English, German, and French literature. It is important to know certain things before you analyze a poem or a book. Who was the author, when did he or she write the piece, what was his philosophy about society and life in general. Then you can ask different questions: Who is the intended reader? What is the tone of the piece? Is there irony? Is this writing to entertain you or are you to learn from it? What is the author?s style? Does he or she use symbolism, alliteration, sensory images or figurative language like metaphors and similes? Does she use satire or foreshadowing? [more]

Master Tutor for Test Prep (SAT/ACT), Physics with Customized Lessons

I consider the SAT/Reading test the most difficult SAT test. The best students can pick 2 answers that are correct and eliminate the rest Such students can also see why both answers are correct. But the SAT will have clues to show which one is the better answer. I have tutored over 40 student at WyzAnt in SAT and ACT test prep. And I am highly rated by WyzAnt in their listings of WyzAnt tutors within 40 miles of me. I am on the first page of each listing, often at #1-#3. The total number of questions a student can finish on SAT tests will normally be severely limited by the time allowed. Ar [more]

SAT and ACT tutor

Tutoring is one of my favorite things to do. I have been tutoring my younger siblings since they were in elementary school. I have helped them and some of my friends succeed in school. My strategy when tutoring is to take it slow until they understand the topic fully and are comfortable enough to take on a question themselves. I enjoy tutoring because I enjoy helping to spread my knowledge. It is a privilege to watch someone learn something they were struggling with and I want to see tha... [more]

After tutoring elementary, middle school, and high school students while I was in high school and college, I taught middle school mathematics from 2002-2006.
