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]

I have tutored dozens of students to help them improve in the math section of the SAT exam. To accomplish this, I review test taking strategies, as well as the basic math rules that help them solve the required problems. I then go over sample problems on a step-by-step basis, and ask students to try similar examples to see if they have internalized the methods we've just learned. I am very well equipped to be a math tutor, having taught math to junior and senior high school students in private schools in the Riverdale-Manhattan area for over 30 years. In this capacity, I have trained studen [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]

***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 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 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]

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'm a recent graduate from The Cooper Union with a Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering. Graduating with this degree required me to develop a rigorous understanding of Mathematics to apply to a host of challenges facing humanity. Furthermore, I've taken the GRE Exam recently, so I have strong insight into the similar variety of logic and math questions present on the SAT. As a Biomedical Engineer, I'm passionate about learning and applying my breadth of knowledge in unique ways. My learning style is rooted in breaking down mental barriers between subjects to enhance overall comprehe [more]

Education is my passion. I naturally love to learn, challenge myself, and help others do the same. I earned a B.A. in Psychology then began teaching Middle School English. You would think this career choice and degree were unrelated, but it's actually all that kept the middle schoolers from driving me crazy! While teaching, I earned a B.S. in the Biological Sciences and earned a biotechnology certificate afterwards. During this period, I also kept up a healthy volunteer pastime teaching a w... [more]

Hello students and parents, My name is Justin, and I am a software engineer at Google in NYC. In my spare time, I do private tutoring with a specialization in math, computer science, and SAT/ACT prep. I enjoy working with students and sharing my passion for math & CS. It is always my goal to not only help students understand the concepts, but also to make things fun by explaining real life applications. I received a Master's degree in Computer Science from Drexel University, where I also wo... [more]
