- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
I am trained in philosophy (B.A., University of North Texas, and M.A., Biola University) and have been teaching/tutoring for over five years in math, reading, writing, SAT/ACT, and critical thinking/problem solving. I have taught a wide range of ages, from elementary to graduate students, and in classrooms of 100+ students to one-on-one lessons. Ultimately, I love to learn and teach, and I have a passion for helping others achieve their goals.
My students can expect to learn to think well about the subject we study together. We will not simply pursue the knowledge of how to, for example, solve some math problem, but we will also seek to understand why we can solve it this or that way. So, we will pursue both knowledge and understanding. When students have understanding, they are much better prepared to apply what they have learned to other similar problems. My students will learn to be creative, logical thinkers who can apply what they learn to their studies and beyond.
I tutored students one-on-one online in all areas (math, reading, writing/grammar, and science) of SAT/ACT test prep.
I taught intensive SAT training courses to classes of 15-25 upper-level high-school students.
I tutored students one-on-one in English/Language Arts and Mathematics. I worked specifically to find the root cause/s of their problems in those areas, and devoted time to helping the students fix those underlying issues.
I tutored high school students in their courses to help prepare them for college, employing the Socratic method by learning to ask students the right questions so that they could find answers themselves. I regularly worked closely with students in groups of 4-5.+ Read More
