Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
High School

I take a fun and unique approach to test prep with my students. First and foremost, I believe in quickly discovering what my students know, sort of know, and don't know. Once we determine this, we can focus on the areas they "sort of know" and "don't know". This makes all the lessons VERY relevant to the student. I also present with a positive attitude and sense of humor. My goal is to prepare students by teaching them knowledge, skills and strategies--once they acquire more of these, there confidence naturally increases. With this improved confidence, performance will go up. Along the way, I believe in continued assessments to make sure my students are experiencing growth and the lesson goals and objectives are being met. I look forward to working with your son or daughter.
