I also guide students in SAT/ACT exam preparation. With each student I try different ways of explaining concepts; so as I get to know the student, I determine his/her language of learning. I then can teach the student in the way he/she understands best. By challenging students to go beyond what they think they can do, I give the responsibility to succeed to the students and empower them to think independently.
