Hi, I'm Dave! I am a published PhD in Economics with degrees from both U.T. and A&M. My transcript shows 37 hours of college math and untold statistics hours. My 2016 GRE score was 170/170 and 170/170. Since 2012, I have teamed up with: high school students, against algebra, geometry, precalc, calculus, and statistics; and college students, against math, calculus, statistics, micro- and macro-economics; and test-takers, against GED, SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT. I will meet you at your ... [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]

Though I'm qualified in all core content, mathematics came naturally for me and has been my strongest subject. I somehow found high school algebra and geometry to be very easy, and I scored in the top 6% of the nation on SAT Math. In college, I continued my math training with pre-calculus, linear algebra, statistics, and business analysis, and used my deep understanding of math for years as a manager and salesman after graduation. Now, as a teacher, I find that my previous real-world experience using math every day enables me to help students find a way to apply the principles of logic to mani [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 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]

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]

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]

Hi students, I am a PhD in Material Science and worked at IBM, New York for 2.5 Years. Recently, I moved to Austin. I have my Bachelor's in Chemistry from India and Masters in Nanotechnology from Joseph Fourier University in France. I have strong passion for teaching. Maths and Science have always been my favorite subjects. In the past, I taught maths and science for 4 years to high school students. I also taught chemistry to undergraduates for a year. Most of the times, I feel studen... [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]

Hey there! My name's Luke, and I'm a native Austinite and graduate of Duke University. Thanks to the guidance of great parents and some great teachers and mentors, I have been blessed to achieve success at a high level in academics, extracurriculars, and professional experiences throughout my life. In high school, I was the typical do-it-all valedictorian, athlete, and nationally-ranked public speaker. I scored a 2270 on the SAT and a 33 on the ACT and was lucky enough to be admitted to a...
