For every type of SAT question, I am able to guide students through the most efficient and effective path of problem solving while significantly boosting the student's confidence. I have educated and inspired college, high school, and middle school students for twenty five years as a mathematics instructor, specializing in calculus but capable of teaching all levels of math.

Standardized test preparation is all about gaining competency across a broad range of topics and being able to express that competency in a high pressure environment. My test prep tutoring style involves using a building blocks method over time using a plethora of practice problems. During each lesson, I will highlight one or two specific topics to focus on as homework for that lesson. After the lesson, I send the student some practice problems directed at those highlighted topics. I then ask the student to work through the practice problems and write down anything they think will help them so [more]

Good choices only come from having a good education to see the choices you have. I believe in drawing out a student's talent and potential. That means making sure that they have a sound foundation in a subject and have critical thinking skills to solve complicated problems. This leads to success in all phases of... [more]

I also have a Masters in Finance from Vanderbilt's Graduate School of B... [more]

I am going on my fourth year as an instructor at the college level. I have a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and a master's degree in mathematics, which makes for a unique perspective on the purpose of math and its application in the world around us. Unlike most professors, I teach entirely introductory mathematics courses, which include algebra, precalculus, and calculus. Combined with a more than a decade of one-on-one private tutoring, this makes me an expert in knowing both... [more]

I received a 740 on the math subsection of the old version of the SAT. I am qualified to tutor in the major subjects covered in the SAT math subsection such as algebra, trigonometry, geometry, etc. I am an undergraduate sophomore at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN majoring in Electrical Engineering. My parents always stressed the importance of education, and my own experiences in high school and college have helped me to better appreciate the value of learning. As a college student myself, I realize that students may have difficulty learning a certain subject due to a variety of factors [more]
