All-Around Tutor -- Math! Standardized Testing! Reading! Writing! ESL!

As a classroom teacher with years of experience, I have had many students who have struggled with organization and study skills, and have seen first-hand the types of approaches that have worked for them as well as what has not helped. My approach is to treat each student as an individual, helping each one identify the specific strategies that work best for him or her. As part of that, I teach my students specific approaches to note-taking, including outlining, the Cornell method, charting, mapping, and (for math), a two-column approach. I also help them learn to take notes from both oral [more]

TEST PREP and ACADEMIC SUBJECTS

As a practicing CPA and as an "A" student over the course of my lifetime, I have discovered the most efficient and effective ways to learn subject matter and how to score well on examinations. It's not always a matter of struggling to read every word in a textbook that gets you the knowledge you need, or the "A" grade. Just like real life, it's often a matter of knowing what is required of you, and addressing those areas first and foremost. Too often, students "spin their wheels" on areas from which they will not maximally benefit. They get frustrated going around and around in circles, not u [more]
