Math, English, and Test Prep Tutoring (SAT, GRE, and TOEFL)

I specialize in tutoring math and English for school and the SAT, GRE and TOEFL exams. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. I also keep a record of what we have done for each class.
My students improve greater than 150 points on average once they can master the main concepts. Many of them have gone on to attend top universities around the world.

Reviews (1)

So far the experience on apprentus and the teacher I met is nice!
I specialize in tutoring and preparing Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus AB+BC for the AP and also the IB exam. My goal is to improve problem solving ability of each of my students and also to increase their long term memory retention of learning materials. I assign homework after every session, schedule periodic review sessions and quizzes, and provide succinct progress reports. I have many satisfied students, many of which have gone on to attend top universities around the world.
I am a native German speaker and can teach A1 to C1 level. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. You will learn important and also interesting study strategies that will help you improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing. I usually assign homework after every lesson and keep a record of what we've done and will do for the next lesson. My quizzes and tests will keep you focused on your goal and not a source of discouragement.
