I teach SAT and ACT prep in classes and 1-to-1. I hsve uniques strategies that employ such that the students can see the recurring patterns in the SAT and ACT question snd answer them with comfort and ease. I work hard to make sure my students have the confidence to tackle the SAT and ACT by working with them initially and then gradually leaving them to show me what they can do independently.
Each student has unique needs and I try to focus my sessions on meeting those specific needs in a thorough yet encouraging manner. I teach a wide distribution of levels from Junior High through Graduate School. Over the years, I have taught a number of students for whom English was not their first language.
I lean towards listening and observing the student. Taking note of such key points as learning styles, interests, past and current academic performance, and needs and wants out of sessions and future academic endeavors.
I have no unique approach to all students. My first session consists of 'getting know of each other' and 'determining the right approach'. Each student is different and I has different needs, so I always try to find the best 'teaching style' for each of them.
I base my classes on the Lesson Plan to be followed and own and shared knowledge of the world with the students: to associate what they are learning with the world. I try to make students communicate in the best possible way, with patience and once the pattern is established, I give them the opportunity to express themselves.
My teaching method is to make sure the student's needs are being met. Before I begin working with a student, my desire is to understand what needs they have first to prevent from waisting time. After that is established and I know what is needed, my goal is to provide a structured but fun, successful learning environment.
I work hard to make sure my students feel confident in their skills to master tests and content. I have taught hundreds of students from grades 5-12, and I am comfortable working one-on-one and in groups. I love teaching because I love learning--there is nothing like the feeling when information finally clicks together.
I really get these tests. I've been working with these tests and students for years. I've seen the changes to the tests over time, and can point these new items out to students as we work. I give strategies and work through a complete test with each student, then we move on to going over the homework tests I give them to complete each week.
I am most experienced with middle school, high school, and college-age students in the subject areas of writing, reading, history, and college application preparation. I do my best to not simply edit work, but to ensure that students learn skills that they can them apply to future projects and assignments.
I have been in school for over 16 years. I have a Bachelors in Health and Human Phyisology. I have over 5 years of Spanish under my belt. I have read countless books and articles and I am full of Star Trek Trivia.

ACT prep can be a difficult thing. First, we must establish a base score. Then, we can work together on each section to determine what factors can be practiced to perfection! Skills we may work on include: time management during the test, functional grammar, reading interpretation, math problem solving, and scientific essay interpretation.
I primarily teach college-bound high school students looking to boost their English scores on the SAT/ACT. I also take students who struggle with essay writing, grammar, and reading skills and help them achieve proficiency.

I try to figure out what strategies work best for each student and individualize my tutoring. I am very patient and accommodating. I have worked with a wide variety of students and feel it is important to build a personal relationship with each student to ensure trust and success.
My method is to improve skills by focusing on areas of greatest weakness. In writing, I use individual conferencing. In reading, I teach fluent efficiency. In poetry, I use the workshop method. In test preparation, practice tests help the most.
I work with students who are preparing for standardized test, such as the ACT and SAT, or who need a tutor for Algebra 1 and 2. I believe in using more than one method to get to the answer, as long as it can be mathematically proven.
I teach English and writing to students from around the world ages 8-88! My teaching method is upbeat, student-centered, constructive, and generative. I ask questions and always let each student's ideas be the guide for our discussion. I provide concrete ideas for development in a positive encouraging atmosphere.
I approach teaching with the knowledge that every student has particular needs, even though the tests may be standardized. I incorporate consideration of these factors into personalizing an approach to efficiently and effectively teaching the fundamental techniques required to achieve the highest scores on these exams.
Here are some things students have said: ABOUT MY TEACHING METHODS: “I really liked your teaching method. You made things easy to learn and with enjoyment. You also listened to what everybody had to say with an open mind.” --Jon A. "Lively, humorous--the way a class should be--educational but fun." -- Dennis P.
Hey! I know how difficult high school can be, and how stressful college season is towards the end of junior and all throughout senior year. I want to serve as either a mentor or admissions consultant to high school students because it is incredibly easy to make the whole deal a lot more challenging than it should be.
In regards to overall teaching methodology, I am flexible! I hope to teach students essay (and general) writing skills from elementary to collegiate levels -- as well as the accompanying test preparation(s). In regards to lesson structure, I plan to tailor my approach to the student's current level and breadth of understanding.
My lessons are variable, and focus on short, achievable goals as a framework towards larger progress. Most students ask for help with specific assignments at first, which I often use as a gateway towards developing other skills. For instance, if I offer specific instructions on an essay's structure, I will tie this in to a larger discussion of persuasive techniques and text features.
