About Acumen Tutoring

Hello, and welcome!

I offer subject tutoring in math, science (chemistry, physics, and biology), statistics, and writing. My SAT, GRE, GMAT, SSAT, PRAXIS, TJ, and PSAT lessons are structured to fit the needs of my students and take into account their prior learning and test scores, as well as their goals. I most recently taught full time at a Maryland community college, and now work as a math content specialist on a national assessment project.

Many students have been accepted to top-rated schools and programs (with scholarship support), and I have helped students move up several letter grades in school - some have even improved from a D or F to an A!

I hold a master's degree in mathematics and bachelor's degrees in mathematics and education.

I truly enjoy teaching and helping others reach their potential. I have a solid knowledge of local academic programs, and when school-age students are involved, I work with parents and teachers to set up the best plan for my students.

I have professional writing and editing experience and have taught mathematics and science at various private and public schools and colleges. My successes include students with differing abilities, including accelerated students and those with learning disabilities.

I tutor in Northern Virginia, and Washington, DC, with particular focus on Arlington, McLean, and Alexandria, and can also tutor in Prince George's County and Montgomery County, MD, when it fits into my commute schedule.

Students can choose one-on-one or group tutoring and test prep options.

One-on-one rates for subject tutoring and test prep start at $50/hr. (within 15 minutes of my location in the Ashton Heights/Clarendon neighborhood of Arlington); group rates for two or more students are $30/hr. or less per person, depending on the number of students.

I look forward to working with you.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Ask the provider how he/she conducts lessons and whether there is a certain number of hours required. If the provider does not already have testimonials or successes, ask for information about his or her experience.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. The more you practice basic skills and use them in your life or in your profession, the better you will be able to grasp the higher-level topics.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. How much experience do you have?
What do you do if the student does not seem to be improving?
What information do you find out about your students before you begin?

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. For test preparation, it is good if clients have an idea of what level they want to score at before applying for a school or college. This helps to give us an idea of how much time will be needed, and how much effort will be needed from the student. If general improvement is the goal, however, then target scores are not necessary in the beginning.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I love when a student who was frustrated with a subject or topic leaves with a smile on his or her face and indicates that he/she has learned something. Even better is when someone goes from disliking a topic (such as math) to wanting to study more of it in the future!
