Licensed Math Teacher - SAT/ACT & K-12 Academic Math Subject Tutoring

I have been professionally tutoring for the SAT since 2010, am a former SAT English and Math private instructor and classroom teacher for The Princeton Review, and am a Massachusetts licensed teacher. The SAT Writing section tests a student?s command of grammar, sentence structure, standard English conventions, and passage organization. Knowing a handful of grammar rules and best practices for writing can improve scores fairly quickly. A lot of students struggle with this section because it tests English rules, as opposed to the colloquial syntax that we are all used to. The way we speak and w [more]

Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

SAT writing is the most daunting part of the test for many. The student must know something of the assigned topic, elaborate on initial ideas and build a strong, cogent argument. It is necessary to write a thesis statement which is backed by specific supports with clear, interesting examples. The reader must be "hooked" into what is written and follow a logically presented rationale. The piece must avoid redundancy, irrelevant examples and vagueness. There needs to be something worth saying and it must be said/written not just well, but well enough to stand out. This is a tall order in a short [more]

Certified Tutor in Most Subjects:SAT/ACT/GRE/SSAT/ISEE Test Prep, Math

As an author and English major, I absolutely love the SAT Writing section. The writing section is comprised of multiple choice questions, which represent 70% of your writing score. The essay represents 30% of the student?s score. Students who work hard and study the grammar, usage, and mechanics review I give them, can look forward to improving their writing score a great deal. We focus on the areas of standard written English that are most frequently tested in the SAT Writing section, such as subject-verb agreement, ambiguous pronouns, parallel construction, dangling modifiers, coordinati [more]

RPI Grad For Math, Physics and Engineering Tutoring (All Levels)

I have been trained in the new SAT and work with Boston Scholar Athletes to teach SAT Prep courses at public schools all over the Boston area. In 4 years of High School, 4 years of College, and 2 years of Graduate School, I learned innumerable things about a wide variety of topics, but the most important lesson I learned was this: the students who get A's are not necessarily the most naturally gifted in the class, but are the almost always the hardest workers. Sooner or later, everyone finds themselves struggling to stay on top of their classwork, and when that happens, it's the diligent, not [more]
