The math portion of the SAT is a tricky test, and I will be happy to give you a lot of hints about what these College Board people have up their sleeves. With the recent revision of the test, skills such basic trigonometry and circle graphs are part of the deal. The good news is that if you know what you're doing, lengthy calculations aren't required. I'll help you review any necessary skills and then tackle strategies for this test. I have more than 30 years' experience teaching at the high school and university levels. I love my students and flourished working in the classroom. Now I am [more]

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

My fall schedule is filling up. I have a couple of random evening times for ?math emergencies.? I have morning and early afternoon times. Due to the time difference, this works very well for East Coast students online. A bit about me... I didn't start out with the thought of being a teacher. I followed my heart...my passion for math. I have a Master of Science in Teaching Mathematics and I emphasize the teaching. I have been teaching at the college level for the past 20+ years and tuto... [more]

SAT Math encompasses arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and algebra 2. Even though a student may have taken all these classes in school, it does not guarantee good grades, since SAT Math asks application, multi-step, and tricky questions unlike the problems that students solve at school. However, it is quite possible to get good scores in SAT Math with practice and understanding of the types of questions. I have taught this subject for over 10 years and helped many students succeed. In 1998, I started tutoring 3 young kids just to earn extra money as a high schooler, and by 2002, I was doing this [more]

I've been training, teaching and tutoring on and off since 1987, and tutoring exclusively since 2005. I tutor simply because I enjoy helping others succeed by mastering the essential principles that will apply in all contexts. I specialize in preparing students for exams like the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT and MCAT, but can also help with advanced math, chemistry and physics at both the high school and college level. I can provide study material and several practice exams. I can usually help a ... [more]

I recently graduated from Oregon State University with a master's degree in Marine Resource Management. Before that, I obtained a bachelor's degree in environmental science, with a minor in chemistry, from Western Washington University. I've always been passionate about the environment, particularly the marine ecosystem. I'm fascinated by the way that humans interact with the natural world and how we can manage those interactions to protect and preserve them. I have experience teaching about... [more]

I have taught many students math for SAT and SAT II, including the new SAT. I helped design the math curriculum for a private tutoring agency for the new SAT math section. I am new to Portland, just moved from the SF Bay Area! I am looking forward to getting to know the city. So far I like it, though there is a lot of rain to deal with! I've tutored for three years in the San Jose area, mostly in math. I've taught kids from 5th grade up through 12th and some college students as well, covering all subjects up through calculus. (I don't do statistics though.) I have worked independently and for [more]

I have always been very good at standardized tests, and I can show you how to get good scores on them. I'm going to guess that the part you have the most trouble with is the math. I will help you understand the reasoning behind the math rules. When you understand that, it becomes much easier. I have taught Math 20 (fractions, decimals, pre-algebra) and Math 65 (mid-level algebra) at PCC. I can show you how to eliminate the obviously wrong answers. Sometimes you can even get the right answer without working the whole problem. And we will work on the "whole problem" so you and your math skill [more]

I have taught several classes in SAT/ACT test prep, and I have helped over 80 students reach their goal scores. Many of my students increase their scores by 100 points in the math section alone. I cover SAT/ACT math as well as strategies for the reading and writing sections. I also tutor academic math subjects - PreAlgebra, Algebra, and Geometry. My tutoring experience spans 9 years, nearly 1000 hours with Wyzant students, and almost 4 times as many tutoring hours with students at The Portland Tutoring Collective. I have coached students to perfect 800s on all sections of the SAT, and high 30 [more]

I have tutored SAT Math since 2010, and took a mathematics minor in college. I am a dedicated professional educator, whose experience includes over seven years of tutoring and three years of teaching high school physics across all levels. Currently pursuing a master's degree at Teachers College, Columbia University, I am committed to becoming the best educator I can be. A Magna Cum Laude BS/BA graduate in Physics and Music, I bring a history of hard-work, creativity, and subject knowledge, and I offer my students a promise that I will do all that I can to help them ac...
