I tutor SAT and ACT English and Critical Reading by providing my students with an accessible study plan, test-taking strategies, and useful rules and tips which they can apply immediately. Through observing my own trial-and-errors during the last five years, I have learned to genuinely communicate with my students and improve from feedback I consistently request.
After a tutoring session with me, the majority of my students will comment, “That was VERY helpful! Thanks for actually helping me understand.” The parents and educational consultants who work with me will often refer my services to their friends and clients based on consistent positive reviews from my students.
I feel you are not only a tutor, you just like an educator. My English is not good, I hope I can express clearly for you. You have very clear instruction and reading plans, you also sent many resources for my son to help him get more information to enrich the article's content. I think by joining the school, the only best thing is to have you be D's tutor. D changed lot of other subject tutors in the past. Only you are still here :)

Your tutoring services are really helpful academically. I learned a lot of grammar and improved my reading comprehension. Games you provided us to play are really fun and I enjoyed them, especially "Dominion". Also, the books you recommend are really interesting. I can't think of any ways you might improve - your tutoring is already really good.

I chose you as a tutor because you actually help me understand. I dropped the SAT class I was taking because the teachers just told us the right answer just "makes sense" or "sounds right" which didn't help me at all. It helps that you speak Chinese but you also explain the answer really well.

My goal is to help students become independent after teaching them test strategies and study habits so I only keep long-term students if they need assistance in areas other than test preparation.

I've taught many of Gunn High School's ELL students and from my experience helping them with test preparation, I express the following advice: start early. Far too often, senior ELL students will come to me a month before their last SAT, ACT, or TOEFL test and hope for a miracle. I abhor seeing my students fail but, unfortunately, ELL students have to work harder since they lack the foundation which many American kids already have, such as basic vocabulary, knowledge of idiomatic prepositional phrases, and reading comprehension abilities. This is the reason why I want ELL students to read, everyday, starting today. It is one habit that will help them immensely in all aspects of English proficiency.
