I have tutored students individually and taught classes to prepare them for college entrance exams, including SAT and PSAT, for over 15 years, both privately and for the Princeton Review.

I have tutored students at all levels and all abilities, from struggling to gifted, as well as those with special needs. I have worked with students accepted to MIT, Wellesley, UC Berkeley, BC, BU, Northeaste [more]

I have a history of high test scores on standardized math exams, including the SAT: 790 math score. I successfully help students use test taking strategies to strategically break down the math section, and improve their score. I also provide targeted skills instruction to help students improve their math skills in all of the areas tested in the math section. One of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my ability to identify each student's individual needs! I am a certified, experienced English/humanities teacher who has taught in some of the top school districts in the metrowest area. I also ha [more]

I scored a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT, and routinely score 800 on the math section whenever I take the practice exams. Even if you aren't shooting for 800, the SAT math exam is definitely one where you can markedly improve your score with even just a limited amount of studying and practice. Fortunately, the SAT math exam covers a specific, well-defined set of topics, and tends to ask the same types of questions in the same way year after year. I will help you with the topics that you find the most difficult, and I have some basic strategies to offer that will help you effective [more]

I have many years of experience tutoring the SAT. In January, Wyzant named its "Top 250 Tutors in 2015" and I am very proud to be on that list! It was such an honor to be recognized! The following vignette tells you almost everything you need to know about me and my methods and my success rate - While helping a student with calculus, she spontaneously exclaimed, "This is the most fun I've had in math all year!" This was coming from an average student whose goal was "don't fail math." But after working with her for a few months, she got an ... [more]

I am a former SAT Instructor for The Princeton Review, and Massachusetts licensed math teacher. I have been tutoring SAT Math (as well as all other sections) for 7+ years. I build my lessons on a two tier approach: content and strategy. I teach both the academic concepts tested (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, etc.), as well as the best methods for problem solving (Picking Your Own Number, Plugging In, etc.). Standardized tests, especially the SAT math sections, are designed to be tricky, so understanding how to approach a math problem is at least as important as knowing the cont [more]

Doing well on SAT math is different from doing well on math in courses. Certain types of questions repeat, designed to test your ability to apply a few basic rules of math. Learn to identify what type of problem you are facing and the easiest way to apply the appropriate rule, and most questions can be done quite quickly. I look forward to helping you gain such facility. My most recent student earned an 800. I've helped students improve by more than 125 points from prior tests. Most students need very few lessons to perform near perfectly on this test. [more]

I have helped students increase their SAT math scores by more than 100 points through a targeted focus on both test-taking strategy and review of content tested. I teach students that SAT Math is not like classroom math. While classroom math rewards students for doing problems the "right" way, for SAT Math, it's not about how you get there, just that you get the right answer. While we review the important concepts for the test, I teach students more about how to tackle problems they don't know by using alternate strategies. I also teach them about doing problems in a faster way even if they we [more]
