Dear all, I am a retired high school math teacher with over 29 years of experience. I am also an adjunct lecturer of mathematics at Hofstra University and Touro college. I am able to tutor math from 9th grade algebra thru college calculus and statistics. I enjoy helping students, my rates a rather reasonable compared to my extensive experience and varied background. I can travel within 15 miles of N.Y.C. should this be required. I am patient and dedicated towards my students.... [more]

Looking for a professional to help bring up that SAT Math score? I?m your guy. I know the SAT inside and out and I can assure you this test is learnable. That said, this is a strange math test, unlike anything you will encounter in the classroom. It's not enough to be good at math (and if you aren't, don't worry. There's hope!). I have two degrees in mathematics and I can tell you that nothing I have learned in class since 9th grade is helpful on the SAT. I scored a perfect 800 on the official SAT Math section in high school because I specifically studied "SAT Math", which is a totally differ [more]

I help develop self confidence and test-taking skills. My tutoring approach is based on working with a student to determine his or her strengths and then figuring out how to build upon that student's confidence with the subject matter. I think utilizing analogies can be a powerful tool to make the learning process more personal. My background and qualification cover a wide array of subjects; which I believe is helpful to finding such strengths in others. I can help students even when they ... [more]

I have over 100 hours in experience tutoring and helping students prepare for the math section of the SAT. From the start, I strive to build a strong working rapport with my students. This makes it easier to assess a student's comprehension and mastery of algebra, geometry, and statistics. There are fundamental concepts that a student must know very well before mastering the SAT math section. Then familiarity of types of problems and how to solve for them is the next key step. I guide my students with an encouraging, positive approach through each step and milestone in the process of achieving [more]

I grew up a little outside of Boston and recently graduated from Swarthmore College, a small liberal arts school outside of Philadelphia, where I majored in mathematics, minored in music, and ran on the cross country and track teams. I am now an early-career science journalist, informing the general public about important issues such as air and water pollution, climate change, and groundbreaking scientific research. I am also pursuing my master?s degree in science journalism from New York Uni... [more]

***My Experience*** In my 10+ years as an educator and tutor I've worked one-on-one with dozens of students on test prep (SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, GRE, GMAT, and Regents), academic subject support (math, physics, chemistry, and Spanish), writing, and college application coaching. My students range in age from 10 to 50 and come from diverse educational backgrounds. I graduated magna cum laude in English from Harvard University, and I have a master's degree from Columbia University, wher... [more]

I scored a 800 on the SAT Math section because I knew exactly what to expect on test day. Many students struggle on this portion of the test, not because they lack the particular skills being tested, but because they have trouble understanding what the questions are asking them to do. In addition to a comprehensive review of all the math concepts tested on the SAT, I teach students how to understand the test maker's logic, and how to approach every question systematically. If you're looking for expert instruction from a passionate tutor, I'm your guy. I scored in the 99th percentile on all the [more]

My specialty is Test Prep with a focus on Math. I have worked with many students on the New SAT Exam, and have been able to consistently improve their score. The SAT is hard as well as tricky, and timing is a significant hurdle to overcome. Einstein once said, ?If you can?t teach it to a six year old, you don?t understand it yourself." I certainly don?t profess to be Einstein, but I do think the key to effective tutoring is being able to articulate difficult concepts in a simple manner. I have a BS from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and an MBA from NYU. During my career I held a number of t [more]

I have been trained by a tutoring company in NYC to tutor students preparing for the SAT. The changes being made to the SAT will put a heavier emphasis on data analysis as well as interpreting graphs and charts. There are several general test-taking techniques that I teach for all standardized tests, and several methodologies that specifically apply to the math section of the SAT. Interestingly enough a significant proportion of students' success on the math section depends on critical reading skills. Often students will follow proper procedure and avoid calculation errors, but they will end u [more]

I have 15 years of tutoring experience and have helped dozens of students drastically improve their SAT scores. I demonstrate the test taking strategies that are unique to the SAT exam and provide a systematic approach that simplifies questions while still allowing students their own individual approaches. I'm passionate about mathematics and enjoy sharing this enthusiasm with my students.
