"Hello, My name is Tara, and I have a Master of Science in genetics from the University of Chicago. I have tutored more than 350 students in the last 10 years. I have been ranked #1 among more than 60,000 worldwide tutors on universitytutor for 5 consecutive years, with an average star rating of 4.97 out of 5, based on 92 student reviews. I have a strong background in mathematics and science and have 99th percentile scores on the ACT, GRE, GMAT, and SAT. In the last decade, I have provided both one-on-one and small group lessons for standardized tests (ACT, GRE, GMAT, SAT, SSAT, ISEE, Selective Enrollment, GED, employment tests etc.), as well as for college-level math courses. My particular strengths are the GMAT, ACT, GRE and SAT tests, and I tutored the vast majority of my previous students for these four tests. My previous students have stated in their testimonials that I am very friendly, patient, and a great communicator. I believe in the Socratic Method of Teaching and like to help students gain confidence and independence by asking them a series of questions, guiding them to the solutions. A huge part of success on standardized tests has to do with timing. I specialize in shortcuts and more intuitive methods of solving problems, which benefit not only the students who have difficulty pacing themselves and finishing tests on time but also the ambitious students who want to score very high for top-tier schools. I have experienced that, for many students, one of the greatest obstacles to learning is a lack of interest in the subject matter. I make math and science as fun and interesting as I can, so that my students become self-motivated. I also provide consultation on the emotional aspect of test-taking to students who have fear and anxiety of certain topics. Finally, I don't catch fish for you, I teach you how to fish!" less...
