I love tutoring Test Prep! Dedicated, innovative, and performance-driven, I specialize in assisting high school students in achieving higher SAT and ACT scores. For a decade, I have been training students to think systemically and to explain their problem-solving processes. As a Kaplan Test Prep teacher, I learned to encourage students to ‘think like a test-maker’ designing their own test questions. My approach is to create cumulative, custom quizzes to review content and timed drills to increase accuracy.
In addition to Test Prep, I have been teaching English and Math online for almost two years. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and helping them achieve their academic and life goals. Currently an EF Education First Teacher, I tutor one-on-one English sessions online as well as conversational English classes ranging from two to seven students. Since January 2016, I have taught 982 one-on-one lessons and 132 conversational lessons: since January 2016, I have averaged 4.74/5.0 student rating for conversational classes and 4.93/5.0 for one-on-one classes. It’s truly phenomenal to meet people from all over the world and to learn about their culture.
A Texas Certified Special Education Teacher, I am passionate about creating individualized curriculum and sharing personalized learning strategies. I teach and tutor with enthusiasm, patience, and structure. My lessons are planned in advance with great detail to maximize learning and encourage tutor-student discussion. In sessions, I offer immediate, constructive feedback and verbal praise, as well as, explicitly instruction and guided practice before independent practice. My teaching philosophy can be summarized by Dr. S Radhakrishnan’s axiom, "The true teachers are those who help us think for ourselves."
