"I am one of those rare individuals who love standardized tests, and I love helping students raise their scores to succeed on tests. I specialize in tutoring SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, ISEE, and SSAT. One of my favorite parts about being a tutor is receiving messages from my students saying that not only did they raise their scores significantly, but they also got into their dream program--sometimes with scholarships! I have tutored all components of each of the tests and have scored at least in the 95th percentile on all of them. I also work with students on gifted and talented tests such as the CogAT. No two students are the same, so I customize each test prep session according to the students' needs, goals, and time available.
In addition, I also provide academic tutoring and homework support for math (from grade school up to trigonometry/Pre-Calculus) and English. I have taught English both for native and for non-native speakers. I tutor very interactively and focus on customizing my tutoring for the student's particular needs. I can help with homework, study skills, or enrichment activities to go beyond the classroom. I particularly enjoy helping students discover that they actually CAN be good at the subject that is challenging them, provided they work hard and ask lots of questions.
I tutor exclusively online, which uses Skype and an interactive whiteboard so that we can talk in real time and take notes directly onto pdfs we upload on the screen. My previous students have found it effective and convenient, often much more so than face-to-face tutoring." less...

Education and Qualifications
|school:||University of Hawaii at Manoa|
I have over 15 years of tutoring experience, have been formally trained as a tutor, and have even won a National Tutor of the Year award for my work with one education company. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Washington with degrees in Linguistics and Psychology, and I have a master's degree in Second Language Studies from the University of Hawaii. My degree is in teaching English as a Second Language, but I do most of my work in test prep and math.
