Strive for success in K-12 Reading/Writing/SAT/ACT/TOEFL/IELTS Prep

SAT Writing involves mustering the basics of the structure of composition, understanding and recognizing typical grammar errors, and utilizing a sophisticated level of vocabulary (in the essay section). My goal is to turn students' weaknesses into strengths and to enable them make the changes they need to get the grades they want in exam preparation and in their school coursework. I believe in guiding rather than instructing; by leading students on a path of discovery to learn, retain and apply, in order to avoid making the same mistakes twice. Students are responsible for their own learning w [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]

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]
