"Math and Chemistry Tutor. Test Prep: SAT/ACT, Praxis, ISEE and more!"
Beyond understanding the required math, scoring well on the ACT has to do conquering those careless errors, because there is no partial credit on the ACT, - and being able to read and understand word problems. I can help on both fronts. I review the math covered by the ACT - algebra, geometry, data and statistics, and some trig/advanced alg 2. Even for those who have not yet had alg 2/trig, the ACT is very predictable, so we can prepare a student for the types of questions the ACT asks in those areas. More importantly, I teach a method to read word problems and quickly and confidently write do ... More
I have tried several tutors for my son for calculus. Daniel should have been my first choice. My son felt very comfortable with him and Daniel's knowledge of calculus enabled my son to succeed in his class. I highly recommend him.

"Russian language and culture from native speaker"
To master Russian language you have to learn phonetics, grammar, syntax and vocabulary. Any course I give in Russian, is based on audio listening, speaking and reading. Tutoring is successful if the teacher applies special approach, depending on the level and needs of a student. I take into consideration the goals of the students, their abilities and preferable ways of training and learning. Russian language is one of the Slavonic group, and some peculiarities of grammar and syntax have no analogue in English language, so cultural and historical explanations, comparison with English are to be ...

We met with Tara for a AP US History review for my 16 year old daughter. Tara is a wonderful, patient and caring teacher. She went out of her way to assist my daughter with various books and material. She was organized, a positive motivator and inspired my daughter with ideas and strategies on how to approach and prepare for the test. Tara made the lesson fun, gave her extra homework to focus on and broke down the material in sections that was easy to manage. I highly recommend Tara and will use her without hesitation if I ever need a tutor again.
