About this tutor

I have been tutoring for over 7 years, helping students to not only improve their grades, but their study skills. When a student at the University of Utah, I was employed through the university to teach calculus 1,2,3, college algebra, and physics. Calculus tutoring, in particular, was my speciality and my students were very pleased with my ability to break up complex  subjects into understandable concepts. 

I have studied test prep strategies extensively over the years and become an expert standardized test taker and test prep tutor. As someone who successfully was able to raise my ACT score by 9 points and score near perfect, and perfect scores on all four categories, I can attest that success on the ACT is a matter of incorporated the right strategies to obtain your target score. 

I previously was employed as a teacher through Sylvan Learning Center and received certification. I taught students in the age range of k-12. I have also taught many students in the k-12 as well as preschool age with much success. 

I am very adaptable as a teacher and my methodology is based off of cognitive psychology pioneered by Mark A. McDaniel and Peter C. Brown, which has reaped great results with my students.
