Whenever I tell a student that I've scored an 800 in the Math section of the SAT, their eyes kind of bug out, and they look at me like I'm a freak. What makes the math section so difficult is that students are expected have an extremely solid foundation of the math that they have taken over their high school careers. Some of the rules that they are required to know are very random (and they may not have covered that topic in their class). When I work with students I go over the most important concepts, the ones that show up the most frequently on the test, in order to maximize their score with [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 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'm an experienced business leader with an MBA. I joined WyzAnt because I enjoy helping motivated people acquire new skills and confidence! My approach as a tutor is a product of my own journey as a jack-of-many-trades and a life-long learner. As a student, I earned GPAs of 4.00 (Associate degree), 3.75 (Bachelor), and 3.79 (MBA). As a professional, I launched a start-up social enterprise in Eastern Europe. After relocating to New York several years ago, I joined a Fortune 200 company where I... [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]

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]

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]

Over 10+ years, I have led multiple students to a perfect 800 in EVERY section of the SAT, both Math and Verbal. I have experience creating strategies and curriculum for ALL sections of the test, and am familiar with the best ways to prepare. Whether you struggle with content, approaching the questions and passages, or timing/pacing, I have a solution to your struggle. Too often, SAT students make the mistake of viewing the SAT as a "trick" test which can be "gamed" or a test which can only be beaten if they learn to be better test-takers. As a result, they invest in expensive courses and pre [more]

If you're looking for somebody to either help you catch up in math, or get ahead in math, I'm your guy. I was a math major at Washington University in St. Louis, and minored in German, economics, and writing. While there, I tutored students in everything from counting to calculus, and beyond. I then earned a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Bard College in '07. I've been tutoring for 12+ years, and full-time for 9+. I've had students between the ages of 6 and 66, with a focus on high sch... [more]

About Me: I've always had a passion for Math and Science ever since I was in Elementary School. I love to teach and share my knowledge in those subjects with other people. I started tutoring at my local community college helping college students with their Calculus or Physics homework and test preparation. One of my colleagues introduced me to Wyzant. I have now been a Wyzant tutor for 4 years and going, and I love the service Wyzant provides in connecting students with local tutors. I approa... [more]
