I love tutoring! First, let me just say I have an extremely proven track record. I'm confident in my abilities enough to give out free first sessions to see if you like me.
My confidence and ability comes from a pure passion and love for teaching others. I live for that A-ha moment when a student finally "gets it". I'm very adaptable to all types of students and try to put myself in the student's mindset and how they are perceiving a certain problem or situation. I've had a lot of experience in helping students with learning disabilities as well. Some of my teaching strategies include giving students a visual, audio and kinesthetic point of view on the same topic or learning point, which gives the student a greater all-around learning experience. I'm also a big fan of having the student teach what they've learned to me. While most of my experience comes from teaching college students, I've also had great success with the younger crowd as well. What truly makes me different is that I'm not just a tutor, I'm a mentor. I've been there and done the academic thing quite successfully and I don't charge extra to offer advice on anything from how to assess which college to go to, how to prep for a big exam, career advice etc. From my experience, being friends with your students is hands-down the best way to get the most out of them. They are more likely to pay attention to you and do homework assignments you ask them to if they are your friend rather than some random guy my parents sent to tutor them.
In terms of my ability to help with an applications process...well, I've helped 28 students with their Professional Business Applications for the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona (a super-competitive business school!), and all 28 have gotten in! Of course, more than willing to provide past student references for any and all my experiences.
