SAT/ACT Prep Expert

Many of my students have scored in the 99th percentile on both the SAT and the ACT, and now attend schools like Cornell and UPenn. I have helped dozens of students boost their SAT scores by hundreds of points, and their ACT scores by as many as 5 points! These results come from hundreds of hours of experience breaking down SAT and ACT problems into simple, easy-to-understand steps. During my lessons, I use prompting questions to help students understand the steps they must take to solve probl... [more]

ESL/ESOL

I spent two years in Romania and Moldova as a volunteer, where I taught two free English classes per week at the beginner, intermediate and advanced level. I also met with students for individual consultations. Since returning to the United States, I have applied the skills that I learned to help several students prepare for the TOEFL.

SAT Reading

Previously, I worked as an SAT Reading tutor for Huntington Learning Center. While there, I helped many students increase their scores significantly and gain confidence. This experience allowed me to become familiar with not only SAT Reading content, but also the test-taking strategies that are critical for success.

Elementary Math

I hold a bachelor's degree in elementary education and have led both group and individual instruction in elementary math.


Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a bachelor of science degree from Brigham Young University in Elementary Education. I also hold a current Utah Teaching License. I completed my student teaching in 1st and 5th grade classrooms.


Phonics

I hold a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, which included a course in literacy teaching methods. This course covered different methods of teaching phonics and integrating phonics into the literacy curriculum. I also completed a portion of my student teaching in a first grade classroom, where I taught phonics daily during guided reading and individual instruction. I also have experience designing individualized instruction for students using phonics to improve both their fluency and comprehension.


Study Skills

While pursuing my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, I successfully completed an instructional psychology class. In this class, I learned about helping students to manage their time and track their academic goals. During my student teaching, all of the students I worked with made significant academic progress after working with me to create and follow a personal study plan. I am also familiar with different learning styles and have designed customized study plans suited to individual student learning styles.


Handwriting

While obtaining my bachelor's degree in elementary education, I completed courses in literacy development which included instruction on handwriting development. My courses covered proper formation of each English character, including the pattern that the pen must travel while forming each letter. The courses also covered common handwriting problems that students face and how to correct them. I was evaluated and on and received high scores for both my teacher handwriting and my ability to instruct students in handwriting.
