*** Lesson Details *** College professor available to tutor students in a variety of social science disciplines as well as basic math. Also available for music and dance lessons both online and in person.
Master in all SAT math concepts. Can identify student shortfalls and address them through the subject fundamentals approach and by tying in real world applications for easier grasp of material.
I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 10 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your student to academic success!
Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attribute
d to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.
Experienced teacher of SAT available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of skills. I typically use books, and also have the tools available to use during lessons.
.I am an experienced Scientist & Mathematics teacher looking forward to help you excel in your academic skills. With the academic and leadership qualities that you are looking for, I believe I would be able to contribute to the objectives.
I have completed my bachelors in New York Institute of Technology as a junior in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in December 2015. I am thrilled to know that you are looking for a tutor and I feel that this is the perfect platform for me.
As a result of my previous work experience in the Bobby & Tariq for 5 years, I believe I am well equipped with not only academic qualifications but also experienced in working in an energetic and dynamic environment. I have been also working as a Faculty under Cambridge CIE board of education.
An opportunity to be able to work will prove to be mutually
beneficial. While I will be able to gain further experience about the real-world applications of teaching, I believe that will also be a great addition to the working terms and contribute to your goals and objectives.
I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity and believe will be worthwhile for us to meet. I have enclosed my resume and would gladly answer any further. Please feel free to contact TakeLessons using the details mentioned.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
My experience with this tutor was great! Despite my schedule mishap the other day, he was considerate enough to reschedule. will see you next week with math.

This tutor does not fill the total time paid for. If the student has no more questions, rather than structuring the lesson like other tutors he will simply finish early! I am sure he is very knowledgable, but his accent is very strong, making learning a newer subject harder through trying to understand new words with a strong accent.
A fan was constantly ticking in the background, and he admitted his internet connection was poor.
I can help with the SAT to get more marks in the exam.
I have been teaching since 2008 with some of the best online teaching companies in the world. Experience of 10 years is more enough to show my teaching skills to different types of students from different countries. My subjects of expertise are Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and Biologywith the class range from Elementary level to college grade. it will be really great to work with you if you need some best teacher that can explain everything from the easiest level to hard.
I've been teaching SAT preparation for 10 years and my students have increased their SAT scores over 500 points from their initial scores.
I create a personalized daily syllabus that caters to each student's individual strengths and weakness, and check in with my students daily to make sure that they are completing their homework assignments and have no questions.
My program is rigorous and demanding, but leads to significantly higher scores very quickly. I do not give my students a chance to slack off or to stop doing their homework assignments because students are required to enter when they have completed their homework assignments, their scores, and their vocabulary words daily through a virtual tracking system that I have created.
I provide a book list including Collegeboard and Kaplan books, though can work with whatever books students already have. I incorporate technology to keep students engaged.
I can't wait to begin!
Leona K. is available for in-home, in-studio, and online lessons worldwide! Leona has been tutoring students of all ages in academic subjects, test preparation, and violin instruction for over 14 years, since 2001. One of Leona's elementary school students who started lessons with poor grades was nominated Student of the District within three months of lessons with Leona. Leona teaches students of all ages and experience levels. Leona is a practicing attorney and is also currently pursuing her MBA. She attended NYU for her Bachelor's Degree, Washington and Lee for her JD, and is now an MBA student at NYU Stern. She has received As and superior scores in all of the academic courses and exams for which she tutors, and has won awards and soloed with orchestras on the violin. Her skills, personal experience, and schooling will bring all
students to the next level in their studies. Leona is a very patient instructor and works with students at their own pace to achieve great results!
Leona has been my life coach for several sessions now and I could not more highly recommend her. Depending on what information she is given beforehand, she will research the situation of the particular student (what career field they are considering for example) and bring what she has learned to the session. She then will listen intently to the student to find out what they want and what is most important to them. After that she will make excellent recommendations designed to maximize the chance that the student will succeed. After having several sessions with her, I can confidently say that every piece of advice she gives leads to a positive outcome if followed. For these reasons, I wholeheartedly recommend her.

I have been learning so much from Leona. I wish I had of started with her when I first began my GMAT journey. She makes everything very easy and break things down. You can't go wrong picking her.

Excellent teacher who developed a personally focused lesson plan that fit my needs. The constant and prompt feedback was what I needed to pass the TOEFL. I highly recommend Leona.
SAT Math requires both strategy and practice;Working with High school students including Beverly Hills High School and Culver City High, we identified key terminologies that typically repeat in SAT tests and used these to structure problem solving strategies with guaranteed success in the outcomes;Students have improved in their Scores and reigned in on their anxieties while going into the tests.

My professional architecture internships(TFA,K-RML,AJLA)Sports background and interactions with my nephews and nieces allowed me to use visual and Verbal ques in lessons.Math and Physics can be fun for you.
I have been teaching the SAT subjects for a long time now and when you take classes with me we will start with a practice test to get an idea of where your needs are. From there we will begin working on the highest subject area needs and work from there to get everything ready for the exam.
I went to Pensacola Catholic High and graduated in 2003. I then attended and Auburn University, where I became a Christian, and graduated in 2007.

I have been teaching since that time and am back home now to get my Master's degree in TESOL. I enjoy teaching people and watching their confidence grow as they learn new skills and develop new abilities. My teaching style is relaxing but challenging; as much as possible, I encourage and motivate students to have a love of learning, not just of this subject but of learning in general.
