I teach mainly high-school and college students. I prefer short, frequent visits (one hour or less at least once a week), and start each teaching relationship by establishing the student's goals and expectations. We then set smaller goals which we will achieve each week to progress toward the overall learning goals.
I have a dual bachelor's degree in Political Science and Economics and a Master's Degree in Political Science. I am a PhD student studying International Relations. I have been tutoring students on college test prep for 6 years. My students showed marked improvement in ACT and GRE scores and were thrilled with their results.
