...I keep it simple and fun! I have given students confidence in their math skills which has transferred into overall confidence in themselves. We both roll up our sleeves and do the problems together.

...In lesson 2 the student gets 2 new rules - the long vowels and the special e. With these he tackles new words until he has confidence to use them - now effectively using long and short vowels and the concept that an e can make a vowel say its name. The student can also identify vowels from consonants and voiced and unvoiced sounds.

...I am able to teach the specialized programs that I use and even provide homework help via online methods. If using a specialized program, I have a copy of the workbook in front of me and the student has a copy of the workbook in front of him or her. We go through the comprehension activities on each page of the workbook exactly as if we are sitting across the table from one another.

...I have specifically taught AP Physics for the past 5 years. In order to keep up with current AP testing strategies, I am constantly going to conferences in order to learn the newest techniques to help students prepare for the exam. I approach tutoring like I do teaching, I try to make the subject matter as fun as possible.

...A slightly different strategy might be needed for ACT. As students move through their math studies, a lot of material is forgotten or just not used a lot. Going over the basics again, like fractions, decimals and percents can play a large part in success for algebra and beyond.
