Karen Berlin Ishii One-to-One Premier Tutoring and Test Prep
Why should you choose Karen Berlin Ishii?
Personalized Instruction
Unlike the tutors at prep centers, I am not tied to a brand-name or hobbled by a preset teaching blueprint: I custom design my teaching for every student. I will work with popular texts and techniques that have been proven to offer successful methods, but have the freedom to supplement them with learning methods and materials customized to your needs. The bottom line is that I am devoted to your academic success, not the success of a brand.
One-to-One beats a classroom experience
Classroom courses have to be geared to the "average" student, whomever that might be! Working one-to-one with me, you won't waste time and energy going over stuff that is too easy - or too difficult - for you; you'll get attention to your particular areas of interest, strengths and weaknesses.
Convenience
I come to your home, your school, or your workplace - wherever it works for you to study best! Can't make a lesson because of a soccer practice or your history teacher has sprung a sudden quiz on you in two days? I will work with you to reschedule your lesson whenever possible.
Value
With over twenty years' teaching and tutoring experience, I have developed techniques that make lessons interesting and effective. For less than the price of tutoring at the highly-hyped study centers and test prep mills, students reap the benefits of that expertise and understanding, while their parents enjoy the confidence that comes from having a teacher who truly cares, keeps them in the loop, and always goes the extra mile for her students.
