BACKGROUND:
I have been tutoring diverse students in many subjects for over a dozen years now. I believe that a strong education is the backbone of a good life.

I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a minor in Philosophy and Ethics. I attended as a National Merit and Flinn Scholar. After graduating, I served for a term in AmeriCorps.

SPECIALTIES:
I tutor in many subjects: most HS subjects, test prep, and college general education, as well as high-level coursework in social sciences, history, philosophy, and other humanities. I can serve as a single, long-term tutor for students that need support in several subjects. I consider myself an "expert generalist," which is a rare specialty at the college level.
I enjoy working with students with learning differences. For example, students who need help keeping up with the many reading and writing assignments in college.
I also work well with international students and non-native English speakers.

SUBJECTS:
At all levels: English, writing, economics, psychology, history, philosophy, sociology, political science, ethics, logic.
In math: algebra, geometry, introductory statistics.
In science: Up to and including introductory college biology, earth science, astronomy, ecology and geography. Also up to high school physics and chemistry.

TESTS:
Standardized exams: ACT, GRE, PSAT, SAT, GMAT, and many high school AP subjects).
For grad school entrance exams, I am strongest with the verbal and writing sections, but also comfortable with quantitative sections.
For the military ASVAB test, I can tutor every topic except engineering.

OTHER SERVICES:
Planning and editing papers up to graduate-level theses, designing research projects, and preparing applications for college admissions, scholarships, IRB, etc.
Training effective studying, test-taking, and research skills.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that a tutor is a partner in learning, paired with students to support their success. I don't exactly think of myself as a "teacher," because teachers have additional classroom responsibilities that distract them from ensuring learning. To that end, I provide all around support, from academic content to study skills and college/grad school admissions.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Independent learning often relies on the quality of support materials the student has available. The worst is an unfriendly textbook, and the best is a self-composed study guide (or flash cards). Helping a student learn to prepare their first study aids so that they can make their own study materials will enable them to learn independently after our sessions.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Obviously, there are many ways to teach a skill or concept. In my experience, metaphors are an amazing learning tool with which to grasp difficult concepts, leveraging the power of the brain to deal with complexity through imaginative thinking. Skills are always gained through practice, but practice can be augmented through several techniques, such as visualization, comparison to skills already learned (and how much practice they took to master), and fostering a growth mindset and strengths-based perspective. Again, all of these techniques are brain-based, rooted in proven psychological principles.
