I have had much success preparing students for the SSAT in math, at all levels. My expertise in standardized test prep and successful math tutoring methods will ensure readiness and confidence for this test. I explain math concepts using simple ideas and illustrations, making them easy to understand and easy to remember. We review the needed math concepts appropriate to the level test the student is taking. Depending on their grade and math background, some students may not yet have learned some of the required math for that level, and that can be unnerving! We prepare for that, and if [more]

I offer tutoring for a wide range of subjects, SAT, ACT, and AP prep, and college application counseling throughout Connecticut! I was accepted to 12 universities, including Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania, New York University, Fordham University, Boston College, Boston University, and Northeastern University. I graduated cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Education, and tutored and mentored students through school-university p... [more]

Is your son or daughter struggling to keep up in their coursework? Are you tired of arguing over homework or exam grades? I understand and I can help. A student's college trajectory is being set as early as 7th and 8th grade. It is absolutely possible to make up for academic weaknesses later, but the sooner a student receives necessary support, the better his or her chances of gaining acceptance to their preferred college or university. As your tutor, I will bring my 10 years of experien... [more]

I have been prepping students for the SSAT at all levels for the past 10 years. My students are strong test takers, and all have achieved significant improvement in scores on the exam. I also provide consultation services for independent/boarding school admission, based on my 20 years of boarding school teaching. I look forward to helping your family with this exciting process. I am a school librarian with more than 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience! I have taught all ages, pre-school through college, in Math, Music, English, History, and Foreign Languages (French, Spanish, Itali [more]

I am particularly qualified to tutor for the quantitative (math) sections of the SSAT, given I have been a teacher of secondary school (upper/high school) mathematics (Algebras 1 and 2, Precalculus and Calculus) and have held CT certification for teaching secondary school mathematics. APPROACH My goal is student understanding, building on a student's existing understanding level and familiar contexts, and looking for ways to help remembrance of procedures/concepts. I will look to determine and address the root or cause of a student's difficulties. I will seek to coordinate my instruction wit [more]

Mathematics is my strong suit, followed by Physics. My top performance in these gained me admission to the most sought out Mechanical Engineering program at a prestigious engineering college where only 1 % of students who wrote the entrance exam gained admission. I have tutored many students successfully in preparing for SAT, SAT Math I, SAT Math II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry, Algebra I and II. I focus on providing intuitive insights into the principles involved f... [more]

I also give Scrabble lessons, which help students with their vocabulary, math, and spacial skills.... [more]

I have over 20 years experience helping student improve their performance in math courses and standardized tests. I have an BS in Engineering with Math minor and also an MBA but more importantly, I have found that many of my 'secrets' of success can be easily passed on. The process that I use to help students maximize their potential involves customizing a program to the specific needs of each person. Many of the large tutoring businesses teach identical systems to everyone. Although ther... [more]

My system of preparation for the math portion of the SSAT (and, more generally, for the standardized tests in mathematics) is somewhat unique and unconventional. In fact, it goes against the grain of *most* of what you have been taught in school... and likely even in a test-prep class, if you have taken one. Sound a bit unnerving? Perhaps. But consider this: those same math teachers who tell you what to do, had most likely not scored well themselves when they were your age. What's more, chances are good that they cannot score that well now, either. That's because their ways are... well, [more]
