Holly Academic and Test Prep Tutor with Eight Years of Experience
381 Rating

I am a dedicated personal tutor who holds an M.A. in Economics and a B.A. in Economics and Middle East and North Africa Studies from Boston University. I enjoy helping students build the skills they need to achieve their goals and raise their grades and test scores. I tutor both K-12 students and college students. My focus areas are Economics, English/ESL, science, mathematics and statistics, and ACT/SAT test preparation. My goal is to help students reach their full potential. I base my tutoring sessions on students’ needs by identifying areas of improvement and using different teaching methods and materials. It is important for students to have confidence and become independent learners, which is why I also create goals with students and help them keep track of their progress. The environment I try to create in each tutoring session is one of positiveness, cooperation, and acceptance of mistakes.
