Methodology


Every individual circumstance has effected what and how I will accomplish learning their learning processes. Ideally I would exhaust any and all resources at my disposal to understand how a specific client will understand the concepts at hand.

This could include past test results, IEPs, parent or family members perspectives, my various techniques of evaluation both formally and informally, and most importantly, the student. No matter the circumstances the student will always be the best source for my understanding their way of learning (regardless if they know it or not!).

I use a student- focused methodology for teaching. Which simply means what I have already touched on. I base each approach or method of teaching on what works best for the individual WITHIN each of their individual CIRCUMSTANCES.

That second part is very important too. All students will have the variable of time. Time can mean the hours spent in tutoring sessions with me; how long someone can study or work on assignments on their own; or how many days, weeks, or months before an assignment, a paper, or a test due date is. Some circumstances will allow for a lot more time than others depending a lot on things like: How soon before seeking out my services before the important dates mentioned, the student's involvement in after school activities (or work schedule if an adult), and a parent or students financial situation (ask about financial incentive programs I offer to find out how to save!

Background

I have many years of standardized test prep tutoring experience. I have been tutoring students in the ACT and SAT (including the brand new in 2016 SAT format) test prep for 4-5 years now. I have several more years or part time tutoring experience in a variety of subjects.

I began tutoring College Algebra in 2004 part time for a home schooled teenager and a non traditional college student returning to finish her college degree after raising a family. I love working with students of all ages and levels.

Over the past few years it has become apparent to me that I connect well with teens and young adults. This is the age most young people are taking their ACT, SAT, or GED tests. I love tutoring how to prep for standardized tests because it is the closest thing there is to an all inclusive comprehensive test of their required education so far. The questions on this test are not like the majority of or all others before them. Not just because they are a life long comprehensive test on the all core academic subject. The questions are testing one's skills in these areas that are derived from the learning objectives throughout K-12th grade.

I discovered that I work well with all types of learners because I focus on each one of my student's unique ways of thinking. Learning how they learn is the most effective first step teaching any student
