CollegeBoard SAT Classroom Experience from Tier One Tutors

About Wesley
I have been tutoring in math as well as science subjects for two years.

From my involvement as a soccer referee, my participation in University Greek life, and as a teaching assistant and mentor, I've developed a positive mental attitude and I apply it to my work style. I understand the importance of discipline, rules and policies, communicating effectively, and teamwork.

I also teach English and Language Art

*** Lesson Details ***
I am enthusiastic about learning so I am somewhat of a motivational coach. I understand how the learning process works so I always fully focus on clarity to make sense to my students every step of the way. Sometimes a teacher with clarity is hard to come by, which is why my headline is the common sense solution.

The hardest part about SAT Math is not the math itself, as it barely hits upon Pre-Calculus concepts, but, rather, decrypting the questions to understand what they are specifically asking for. Occasionally employing the process of elimination really helps here.

About Erica
I am a former science teacher and currently a multi-subject tutor; I tutor arithmetic, Algebra I and II, calculus, chemistry, college algebra, pre-calculus, physics, and beginning Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. My favorite part about working with students is getting to the point where they understand concepts and have a resulting confidence boost.

I firmly believe in working on something until the student understands it very well or masters it; we work on that one thing "until" rather than focus on the completion rate, though both are important. I've tutored mathematics for the past six years and have expanded my repertoire to include various elementary, middle school, high school, and even college level subjects.

I could select many adjectives or adverbs to describe the quality of Erica's pedagogy, but here are some that come to mind quickly: knowledgeable, patient, professional, dedicated and attentive. She comes to work prepared, and works with your child where he or she is. Whether your goal is after school tutoring for your public or private school student or supplemental tutoring for your home schooler, Erica is without question one of the best tutors in Austin.

She tutors my two home school students, ages 7 and 9 in basic math, and reading and writing skills. My kids like her.

Erika is great at giving me approaches to understand how to work my physics problems. It helps to have a different explanation than my teacher's in class, and to have her point out the mistakes I am making. She has really helped improve my grade and test scores, especially on my AP test.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and I am currently studying for a masters in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique voice, weather it be through singing, acting or writing. I share with my students tools to gain the ability and con
fidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those arena's for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teachers job to respect each students individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, blues and cabaret artists and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the students individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal exercise come next, then when the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that the student be part of the process of picking material since the more they personally respond to the material the more apt they are to be engaged in their lessons and the more quickly they will learn. After three to six months they will understand the fundamentals of breathing and relaxation and its importance to proper vocal training. They will have begun the process of extending their range and will understand the principles of performance in song.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the must compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

I'm a Ph. D chemist trained in a prestigious US university and extensive experience in teaching and tutoring in high school sciences, freshman General Chemistry, sophomore Organic Chemistry, and advanced chemistry courses.

Through one-on-one and group tutoring, the subjects will be presented in a way that caught interest, clarified difficult topics and led student(s) through complex areas, and put knowledge into context so that its relevance was apparent.

As a chemistry educator, especially one who is tutoring at the high school and undergraduate levels, I will bring a lot of energy to my student(s). If I can't get excited about my subject, why should my student(s)? Another important element of my tutoring is encouraging reasoned thinking and rational problem solving, especially in developing logical arguments.

Need better scores? Or just help with homework? Contact me!

To help you reach your personal academic goals, (whether it be pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trig, pre-Calculus or Calculus, SAT, and/or the ACT test preparation, or may be GRE preparation for an older audience) I will find your weak topics and help you understand it fully. For that, I analyze your previous work and we discuss what you did and why. I will help you to see the logic in the solution and understand the relationship between concepts. Between sessions, I will happily answer short questions off the clock by email, or Skype.

For the SAT/ACT test takers my plan is usually for a student to take the practice test at home or school, then grade it and come back to me with the results. We will diagnose your problems (as in “didn’t have enough time”, “don’t know how to approach a problem like this”, “didn’t read the problem carefully”, “made a calculation error”, “didn’t know the definition” and so on) and work ...

About Marina
Hi, my name is Marina. I have a masters degree in Math and I'm from Russia. So, I could help you with both subjects:). I love to work with you on your goals and help you to achieve things that you set for yourself. I am also flexible with time and different types of math support.

I have several years of experience tutoring students in standardized tests. I am especially familiar with the most recent versions of both the SAT and ACT.

About Joe
I am a writing educator with 15 years of experience; I've taught in public schools, community colleges, universities, for tutoring companies, and privately. Every place tackles language arts test-taking in its own way and that makes me familiar with a very diverse range of strategies. The SAT has changed and other tests will soon follow suit, but I can provide an adaptive, focused curriculum, tailored for getting you the score you're looking for, no matter the test.

For those not looking for help with testing, I also offer regular writing tutoring for schoolwork and college essays, writing help for college students, and services for professionals, including resume review, cover letter drafting, and other business communications services.

For families, study buddies, or peer groups, I can accommodate up to three students at a time,
working on individual tasks.

I serve the entire ITP area and several OTP communities; I'm willing to travel to you, and we can meet in whatever setting is most convenient, including public areas such as libraries and coffee shops. Online tutoring is also available and I have additional times available for such sessions.

I loved learning creative writing from Jacob! He was a really fun teacher, but was also serious about helping me learn. He was always prepared, and really seemed to care about my thoughts.

What I loved most was how it never felt like he was talking AT me, but instead, he was talking with me.

I can't recommend Jacob enough!

Jacob is an adept teacher. In poetry where everything is up to the reader's interpretation, Jacob remained unbiased and gave me great advice, drawing from his vast personal experience. He never tells me what to write, just gives suggestions on what he thinks could be changed.

I've been sending my poetry to Jacob for a long time. He's a very deep and generous reader and always asks a lot of questions before offering suggestions, to make sure that he understands completely what I am trying to accomplish. When he gives me critiques, he has an amazing knack at separating the meat from the bone, tightening my lines, and modifying my structure to best suit my vision for the work.
