Our 8th grader is an honor student and does great in school but needs practice with his writing, especially as many high schools request writing samples for scholarships and even entry. Kristen gave our son a great base for starting, clear directions, and excellent feedback. She was professional but fun and was good at keeping him on task. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we plan to ask her to start working with him on a regular basis.

"Teacher - Geometry, Algebra, Writing, Special Education (ADHD, Autism)"
I currently co-teach American History. My original degree is Political Science. Basically...I LOVE this stuff! The Virgina SOL standard questions require students to extrapolate information before being able to answer the question in front of them. Hence some students need help with re-enforcement of information from class as well as test taking hints to do well on class assessments AND the SOL. And it is my job to fill in those blanks! ...

"Math Tutor With Excellent Track Record"
As a youth pastor one of my responsibilities is to ensure that all children, including those in elementary school receive lessons where they not only learn the material but also are able to apply it. I have personal experience teaching a weekly early elementary class for over a year and half where each night I prepared a lesson and activity and was able (in just 30-45 minutes) to teach a lesson, perform a craft and get the children to memorize a Bible verse. I am not only successful at getting young children to learn the class material but also get them to apply it as well. This in my opinion ... More

"Social Studies, English, Writing (General-AP)"
Unlike most private tutors I take a classical approach to tutoring that will specifically address your trouble spots. If for example, you struggle with a certain era of American History like the Industrial Revolution then that is where we will focus. Likewise, I provide students with the proper English grammar and mechanics they need to present their work at a higher level of quality.
If you are preparing for an AP test in: U.S. Gov't, U.S. History, Comp. Gov't, Macro/micro Economics I am... ... More

"Making Connections in English"
I hold a TESOL/TESL certification from Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA). NOVA is pleased to offer this outstanding credential because of their awareness of the need in this diverse community. We are blessed with many well educated foreign nationals needing higher English skills.
