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

The Language Art/Writing section of the SAT is combined with the Reading section. Each part has a maximum of 400 points to give the 800 point maximum for this test. The "Writing" part covers both grammar rules (about 15) and rhetoric (ordering sentences and paragraphs, adding or eliminating sentences). The grammar-type questions are mostly straightforward once you have relearned all the grammar rules. The rhetoric-type questions tend to be more subtle and more difficult to track down the best answer. [more]

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

My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obstacles brought me further love for learning and those subjects. I want to transmit that feeling of accomplishment to students as they master their own subjects, and hopefully foster a passion for further learning and success in any of their other endeavors. As a to... [more]

Law School Graduate With Twenty Years' Teaching Experience

Hello! I have had such a great time tutoring and teaching hundreds of students over the last 15 years, and I would love the chance to work with you.

This was my approach: understanding "why" math works is just as important as learning "how" to do math problems successf... [more]
