I try to meet students where they are, tailoring my approach to their existing strengths and targeting my teaching to their areas for improvement. I teach through practice, using resources from worksheets to KhanAcademy to talk through problems in real time.
I am a tutor with 5 years of experience, specializing in writing, homework help, Spanish, and test prep. I bring enthusiasm and fun to daunting subjects! I have helped students improve their grades, write excellent Common App essays, and see their SAT scores jump by 100-300 points and their ACT scores by 4-8 points.
