I try to be a different kind of tutor. I have 20 years leading strategy & marketing teams for Fortune 100 financial services companies. Prior to joining Corporate America, I spent 10 years consulting to global powerhouse management consulting firms. As a result, I am always on the look out for opportunities to reframe a question in a "real world" way. Second, with 3 sons, I have learned how to tailor content, method, approach to fit a broad age range.
I have worked with professionals who are returning to school, college students eager for that first job and middle schoolers wondering why there are so many letters in a math class. I find that each age band helps me with students in the others and each repetition (I started tutoring in 1995!) makes me a better teacher.
Since nearly all students are seeking performance improvement, I am guilty of addressing the ENTIRE challenge. Subject matter mastery is necessary but not always sufficient. Test strategy and test-taking skills are part of this and we need to at least touch upon all factors that influence your evaluation.
Finally, I will close by noting that I take your success personally. This isn't a job for me. It is something I enjoy. And after thinking about why I enjoy teaching so much, it is because of the transformation I get to see as a student makes tangible progress up the proverbial "learning curve" that we all have.
