Thank you for your interest in the ASVAB. In appreciation and recognition of your commitment, I am happy to offer a 10% discount off my base rate, in addition to any WyzAnt discounts you qualify for. (Extended travel surcharge may still apply.) My focus on ASVAB preparation is on the Arithmetic Reasoning and Mathematics Knowledge sections. Particularly if it has been a long time since you've taken a math test, I can quickly get you up to speed in the most frequently tested math strands. I can identify weak areas and teach the concepts in a way to make them understandable and memorable, helping you reach your goals.
High School Placement Exams such as the COOP and HSPT can be nerve wracking for students. These tests are fast paced, and the timed element can add anxiety. As a successful tutor experienced in high school and middle school math, as well as general standardized test prep, I tutor the math portion of these exams. I help students by building skills and confidence; going over the most tested math concepts; and teaching strategies to lower anxiety and be prepared for the timed aspect of the test. Additionally I can help students organize their study for the other portions of the exam.
I offer Independent School Entrance Exam prep, specializing in math and test taking tips and strategies for this unique, timed test. In addition to reviewing the most-tested math concepts, the quantitative comparisons in the math section of the ISEE are unfamiliar to most students, so a particular concentration on these is included. My expertise in standardized test prep and successful math tutoring methods will ensure readiness and confidence for the ISEE student.
Whether you need just a refresher or remedial help for the Praxis Test, I am prepared to help. My expertise and successes in standardized test preparation, with focus on math skills, can help you quickly get up to speed. With years of experience working with students, and mastery of the content, I can quickly identify weaknesses, and efficiently work with you to overcome them. The secret? Showing you how to break the problems down into their easiest components, and then take them one step at a time. Worried about not being able to use your calculator? I can not only show you ways to easily estimate answers, but I can show you short cuts to lengthy calculations. I have helped many students gain confidence and ability to get the results they need on the math portion of this test. In addition to specialized concentration in math, as an advanced degree holder myself, I can help you organize your study and review your work for the other components of this exam. Please take a moment to look through my clients' reviews. I look forward to helping you too!
At the end of the year, students are under much pressure, and reviewing the content of an entire year of class material can be daunting. Furthermore, sections that a student was weaker on when first covered won't get much easier without targeted help. Often small clarifications or just being shown a concept in a different way can help greatly. With a strong background in algebra 1,2 (with trig) and geometry, I can help students successfully prepare for Math Regents exams.
With a Ph.D. in chemistry, I have done a lot of studying! The adage - "study smarter, not harder" is certainly true, and I can show you how. With a relaxed style and good rapport, I can help you organize your tasks, make a timeline, glean more from your reading, and strengthen your understanding. Please take a moment to look at the reviews clients have left for me to see if I would be a good fit for you.
The Test of Essential Academic Skills is used for admission to many nursing schools. It covers reading, mathematics, science and English and language usage. My main concentration is on the math section of the TEAS. Brushing up on math skills is essential for most test takers. Since a calculator is not permitted on this timed test, many students feel added pressure. I can help with strategies and skill building to help you arrive at the answers you need without relying on your calculator. In addition, I can identify your strengths and weaknesses in math to help you develop a plan to maximize your score. I have had extensive experience tutoring standardized math test preparation, and have helped many students. In addition, I hold a Ph.D. in Chemistry, and can help you work through test preparation materials in the science section as well.
