Why Choose McElroy Tutoring?
1) I'm an expert. I have over 20 years and 20,000 hours of classroom teaching, private tutoring, and essay editing experience, going all the way back to my freshman year at Harvard, where I graduated with honors in 2002.
Along the way, I've attained near-perfect (99th percentile) or perfect scores on every test that I teach (SAT, ACT, LSAT, GRE, GMAT), including perfect scores on the SAT, ACT, and GRE — and my students have earned admission to nearly all of America's top colleges and graduate schools.
Over my last two decades as a professional tutor, I've also created and developed my own proprietary strategies, methods, and techniques: ones that no other educator can offer, because I invented them myself. These methods have allowed my students to achieve some of the very largest score gains in the industry.
Finally, I offer my private students access to extensive digital libraries of high-quality prep materials. These materials — the very best available in the business — serve as the source of most homework assignments and (official) practice tests.
2) I'm patient, perfectionistic, and personable.
Patient: I am by nature a patient, friendly and calm instructor. I promise not to rush you or to make you feel stupid. Learning is a humbling process, and everyone makes mistakes, including me. We're only human!
Perfectionistic: I am never satisfied until you understand 100% of the material, and will put in extra time outside of our tutoring sessions to clarify my lessons or do further research on a question if necessary.
Personable: Yes, I have social skills! I can hold a relaxed, normal conversation, I always try to make learning fun, and I pride myself on my ability to connect with all types of students. Call me directly at 619-889-2935 to hear more.
3) I never stop improving as a tutor. The person who thinks they have nothing left to learn is always wrong. I constantly seek to master my craft through a variety of means, including reading every resource I can find and scouring the internet for good information. After more than two decades working full-time as a private tutor, I'm happy to report that there is still so much left to learn.
4) I'm committed to your success. I care about my students, and will do whatever it takes to help them achieve their goals. I understand that my services are not cheap, so I aim to prove to you that they are worth every penny.
