"Tutoring for the Social Sciences and Humanities"
I am a former college instructor, specializing in political science and international affairs. In addition to the subject areas I have taught in, I can provide tutoring for writing, standardized test preparation, and general study skills. The most important skill that a student can learn for college is not how to memorize specific information, but how to go about budgeting their time and breaking down the material presented in classes. By developing these critical thinking skills, students ca... ... More

I would highly recommend Theresa as a math tutor. She has helped my daughter to understand new concepts in both Algebra 1 and Geometry. She brought significant clarity to subjects and my daughter greatly enjoyed working with her. She has been exceptionally helpful in transitioning to public school, offering guidance as to testing, pace of study and curriculum merits. My daughter also made progress with focus and the ability to sustain independent work thanks to her time with Theresa. We found her to go above and beyond what we asked, and were impressed by how committed she is to her tutoring students.

"Home/ online tutor (learning coach). Special Ed and math area special"
I am a certified special education teacher. I have experience with ADD/ADHD students, Aspberger's/ spectrum Disorder students and mild to moderate disabilities.
ADD/ADHD students require a lot of patience and monitoring to keep them on task. They need assistance with organization and methods to keep themselves organized.
Often these students miss important information in class as they have a classic tendency to hear only the first and last things said. Tutoring will provide the missing information to fill in those educational gaps. ... More
I sought Dave's help for my college level Critical Thinking class which involved difficult logic problems that I was struggling with on my own. Having never tutored me before, he was able to review the class assignments and my book and then immediately dive right into the material with me. Although Dave and I only needed to meet for two sessions in order to finish my assignments, we were able to accomplish so much. I knew immediately that I made the right choice and would highly recommend him as a tutor based on his teaching background and vast knowledge. As I continue with my education, I would not hesitate in utilizing Dave again.
