ExperienceI have tutored high school and lower division undergraduate courses for the majority of my college career. I focus mainly on science courses but I also write well and have experience editing essays and helping students brainstorm ideas for writing assignments.
For the sciences, I have found that I most effectively help students when I quiz them to pinpoint gaps in their knowledge and then find ways to help them condense material in a fashion that aids recall on exams. For writing assignments, I emphasize that students make it a goal to make arguments as clear and concise as possible for graders. Thus, I help them locate points in the paper that could be improved on and work with students to research how to strengthen the argument.
In high school I took 11 AP classes in a variety of subjects and am confident I have found ways in which to best outline the relevant exam material. Further, I competed in various science fairs and could offer my insight on how to create a testable hypothesis and make a year-long project out of it that looks great on college applications.
Research shows that the best way to learn is by teaching others. I enjoy tutoring because it has helped me in my academic career. Further, I sympathize with students who take courses with faculty that do not put much effort into teaching and thus do not teach effectively. I find it rewarding to help those who do not receive much in-class support.

Sunny Brar has been my daughters tutor since fall of 2014. My oldest daughter is currently a fifth grader and my youngest daughter is in third grade. We have always found Sunny to be well prepared, consistent, compassionate and reliable. She is always willing to come up with creative lessons that have proven to be interesting and educationally effective. Furthermore, she has spent many hours with my daughter working on math strategies that have been very successful. Prior to finding Sunny we had unsuccessfully tried many different tutors and companies, none of them compared to what we have now. My daughters look forward to seeing her twice a week. I appreciate that she makes the experience fun for them and that I have been able to see the difference she has made. I know with all confidence that she will do an outstanding job with any student and become an asset to the family or organization fortunate enough to have her.
Sunny does a great job of simplifying the subject matter in a manner that is clear and easy to understand. After just one session with her, I started to become significantly more comfortable with organic chemistry. She also has helpful analogies from everyday life that are good ways of remembering certain rules of organic chemistry. I definitely recommend her as a tutor!
