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]

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]

Science and Math for the Non-Traditional Student

I offer science and math teaching for under-challenged, over-challenged, home schooled, twice-exceptional, interrupted, and other non-traditional learners. I have ten years of experience as a teacher, and have been a dedicated private tutor since 2013. I've worked with many wonderful students who are constantly teaching me that there's a different "best teaching strategy" for every learner.

Ivy League test prep tutor - SAT/ACT/GRE/SSAT/ISEE

The multiple-choice section in the SAT Writing tests a short list of grammatical issues. I review those issues with students and teach them how to spot the issues in questions. For the essay, we discuss what goes into a good essay, what students can do to make the readers' jobs easier, and small changes students can make to turn a "good" essay into an excellent one. I am a Dartmouth College grad and current MBA student with 16 years of professional tutoring experience and outstanding student results. I've helped coach students to 300+ point improvements on the SAT, 5+ point improvements on the [more]
