The ultimate purpose of an education is to cultivate your intellectual capabilities so that you may create the opportunities for your own self-fulfillment. Thus, an educational experience is one in which you are provided a challenging environment to explore, inquire, and achieve in your own way. My objective then as your tutor is to construct such an environment wherein these abilities may be maximally developed so that you are empowered to accomplish your specific goals. In doing so, I will... [more]

As an SAT math tutor, I specialize in helping students review content and identify strategies and shortcuts that will allow them to solve problems methodically. I have worked with several students on comprehensive SAT math. I am especially well-versed in teaching the geometry and probability problems. In my view, the most important strategy to use on the SAT math sections is to maximize the number of questions answered correctly. To that end, I think the best test strategy is to not rush but to identify the problems that can be solved most easily. After the "easy" problems are done, I e [more]

I have tutored many students in SAT math with good results and I'm a professional mechanic engineer. I specialize in advanced math, science, and engineering subjects at the college-level but also teach English, writing, and music. My experience as a teacher spans over 15 years with a strong track record for success. I believe everyone, and I mean everyone, has the capacity to learn, and I do my best to take the subject material and make it as easy to understand and retain as possible. Unlike most teachers, I have strong industry experience, and therefore actually know how math and science ar.. [more]

So often I find that students have been presented with steps and rules rather than the development of the why something works. Therefore, I take the time to develop concepts and understanding of the mathematics. I have tutored in the south Austin area for the past six years as well as provided instruction for home schooled students. I have taught the following elementary and secondary courses: 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th grade math, Algebra I, Pre-AP Algebra I, Geometry, Pre-AP Geometry, Algebra 2... [more]

The SAT is so different from other tests because of the way it expects the student to think analytically. I was a National Merit Scholar, and for me the kind of questions that are asked in the SAT are my favorite. They're so fun to solve because they expect you to arrive at your answer systematically. Determining a fundamental approach to solve each problem is very rewarding after it becomes a part of your math arsenal. We won't just drill practice problems, we'll make the knowledge permanent by seeing the structure of questions and their appropriate solutions. [more]

I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solving problems. That is: U - Understand the problem - what is being asked P - Plan how you are going to solve the problem S - Solve the problem Check - Check your solution, particularly for reasonableness I believe in giving the students the background so that they can understand how and why certain solution methods work. This... [more]

I have been teaching ACT & SAT classes around the country for the past 15 years. I have helped over 15,000 students prepare for these tests over the years and I enjoy seeing student succeed. I own a prep company that holds seminars at high schools all around the country, but my wife and I have a little one on the way, so I'm trying to stay closer to home this next season. I will provide materials for all the lessons and valuable insight on how to improve on each section of these exams. I... [more]

TUTORING PHILOSOPHY Having taught over 1000 high school students while teaching math at St. Michael's Catholic Academy, I have found that each student, regardless of age (middle school, high school or even post-secondary) is a unique person who has their own learning style. The key to successful learning via tutoring is to identify that style and use it motivate the student to gain knowledge. There are two major components to my teaching style: whenever possible: 1. provide more than on... [more]

I am a brilliant and dedicated tutor who has experience with classroom mathematics, competition math, and test prep. I have taught test prep in Austin and at MIT and I have a strong background in high school math and contest math. I have also worked as a judge at the Harvard-MIT math tournament, and worked closely with students at a variety of skill levels, from high school students to mathematicians. What I love about tutoring is seeing my students improve, and being able to boost their ... [more]

I have always enjoyed learning and education. I remember as a kid helping classmates understand certain concepts and having a feeling of satisfaction knowing I could teach something to someone else. My thirst for education has never ended. I grew up, went to college, studied electrical engineering for my undergraduate degree and worked designing computer chips for companies like Motorola and IBM. I eventually went back and received my master's degree in electrical engineering and worked at Sa... [more]
