I am a Harvard graduate (class of '02), SAT perfect scorer and full-time private tutor (SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, ISEE) based in San Diego, California. Since 1998, I have amassed nearly 20 years and 20,000 hours of private tutoring experience, both in-person and online via Skype. To arrange private Skype tutoring with me, or for a free 15-minute consultation, please contact me directly at 619-889-2935 (call or text) or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also book tutoring hours with me here.
Live in Idaho but want to connect with an expert ACT or SAT tutor in San Diego? Reside in Texas, but want to work with a 99% scoring GRE or GMAT tutor? Don’t want to change out of your pajamas before starting your ISEE tutoring session? Or maybe you’re just too tired of spending gas money and wasting time sitting in traffic.
Here is how it works:
I am often asked, "how is a tutor on the other side of a computer screen supposed to draw out math problems for me / my student?" Easy. I don't need any special equipment; I simply draw with pen and paper as usual, then hold the paper up to the screen and have the student take a screenshot. The student can collect all the screenshots in a folder and save them for later review. For your screenshots, use either the "Print Screen" (Windows Key + PrtScn) button on a PC or (Shift + Command + 3) on a Mac.
If you like, then you could even use screen capture software to record your computer’s screen so that you have a full video and audio record of the lesson. This is very helpful if you'd like to go back and re-watch the video to review certain topics / conversations. I also scan all my notes from the lesson afterward using and send students a PDF of the lesson notes afterward.
