SaraI currently work as an educational researcher, but in the past worked as an ESL teacher and an urban planner. I have also been a test prep instructor for the GMAT and GRE for the University of New Mexico and privately. I have a bachelor's degree from Antioch College in Latin America: Language, Literature and Culture, and I have master's degrees in Community and Regional Planning and Latin American Studies from the University of New Mexico. I feel rewarded by watching students gain new knowledge and the confidence to reach their goals, whether it is for their education or career. I can help students who need a tune-up of their knowledge, or students who are having trouble grasping challenging concepts. I enjoy seeing students overcome their challenges, especially in regards to dealing with test anxiety. In addition to traditional study methods, I sometimes teach students with test anxiety relaxation, visualization, and breathing techniques to help them during tests. I work to make difficult concepts easier for my students to understand. I strive to be compassionate and patient with my students. My hobbies include camping and hiking, traveling, learning new languages, and dancing. In addition to being an educational researcher and tutor, I am also a certified childbirth doula.

ChristopherI have a lot of tutoring experience in science and math. Through this, I've developed the ability to make difficult subjects easier to understand and engaging. I've always enjoyed math and been successful in it. As a result, I spent 25 years informally helping fellow students, friends, and family in math and science topics. As an undergraduate, I was a straight A student in math and was able to be a member of the math honor society. It's a joy for me to train students in science and math topics, but it doesn't matter if it's calculus, physics, or basic operations like addition. I've tutored many students who find math or science to be too difficult, and helped them turn around their grades and build a good understanding of these topics. In addition, I make it a priority to be flexible to your scheduling needs.
