...I have gone through training at one of the top corporate test prep companies, and know their standards well, but this is not the right approach to education. Tutors need to have a more holistic view of the individual they are focusing on. We need to breed conceptual independent thinking, creativity, and confidence.

I've been teaching or tutoring for over twenty years in some form or another. For me the reward from tutoring is when I see that a student has caught onto an idea, when the light bulb goes on. In my career I've not only studied physics, mathematics and statistics, but applied them as well as time management and study skills.

...I am flexible with time and only require a 4 hour cancellation notice. I will re-schedule a make-up session if necessary. I have reliable transportation and can travel to the students home or a nearby library/cafe.

...These aid in teaching to students. Although I truly love all math subjects I have studied, in many ways geometry is my favorite high school math subject. It is the only one learned as a deductive system (starting with undefined terms and defining all others from them, and postulates and proving all theorems from them). This is the way mathematicians do all areas of math.

...SAT Reading was the first subject I began tutoring back in 2006, so I know the material very well. This part of the SAT is unlike the tests students usually see in school, so it requires some adaptation and new skills. Timing is crucial to success in this section, so I always have my students first learn the techniques and then gradually build speed in working through passages.
