I earned a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering and a master's degree in business administration. I taught graduate students leadership and critical decision making in an MBA program as well as middle and high school science and mathematics. I coached the best high school math team in Palm Beach County for five years. My SAT students have shown great improvement. I also home-schooled my son from 1st to 8th grade - he attended Princeton University on a full academic scholarship and graduated Cum Laude in economics June 3, 2014. In addition, I have experience in high school guidance and can coach students on PSAT, SAT, ACT, ASVAB and GED exams. I also was the math instructor for the Palm beach State College Upward Bound Program.
I have worked with several students on the ASVAB Mathematics questions including Mathematics Knowledge, Arithmetic Reasoning, General Science, and Numerical Operations. I have reviewed a hundred sample problems and have a background in chemistry and mathematics teaching at the middle and high school level.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple choice test, administered by the United States Military Entrance Processing Command, used to determine qualification for enlistment in the United States armed forces. The ASVAB comprises ten individual tests: Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Mathematics Knowledge, Arithmetic Reasoning, General Science, Auto and Shop Information, Mechanical Comprehension, Electronics Information, Numerical Operations, and Coding Speed.
I worked for American Heritage for 2 years in Career Guidance and College Counseling. I have been with Wyzant since 2009 and worked with students on many subjects and also helped them with writing college essays, applying for scholarships, SAT preparation, College selection strategies and timing for college applications. I homeschooled my son Francis, who is about to begin his Senior Year at Princeton University on a full scholarship. He received 7 scholarships from various sources. I am familiar with Common Applications, Florida's Bright Futures Scholarships, Questbridge Scholarships, and many others. I maintain a library of books on college scholarships. I have a Masters in Business Administration and have taught middle, and high school students as well as graduate students in Business Administration.
I worked with several students on Pre-calculus courses including online courses. Course material included Polar Coordinates, Ellipses, Parabolas and Hyperbolas, The Unit Circle with sines, cosines and tangents, the rules of Sines and Cosines. We calculated asymptotes, foci, vertices, directrix, Limits and Derivatives.
For the last 5 years I have worked with high school students on SAT Math. All my students have improved their scores in this subject. My philosophy on Math is "Practice makes perfect." I teach one or more ways to solve each question. I emphasize the importance of speed and accuracy.
The last time I took the SAT in October 2008, I scored 800 out of 800.
I have worked with dozens of students on the writing portion of the SAT. I scored a perfect 12 on the essay by writing a 5 paragraph essay including a thesis, 3 proof statements and a concluding paragraph. I have had students write essays. Then I will either rewrite the whole essay for them or critique the essay line by line with them.
In the 5 years since I began tutoring, I have always emphasized the importance of being organized and developing good study skills. I have taught dozens of students from middle school through graduate school including my son Francis, whom I home-schooled through eighth grade. With new students I always emphasize the need to read essays carefully, to underline the actual question in a word problem, and to write outlines of textbook chapters for later review. My students are very well prepared to continue their studies.
I have tutored math for 5 years - algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and arithmetic. The Math subtest of TEAS covers whole numbers, metric conversion, fractions and decimals, algebraic equations, percentages, and ratio/proportion. I work with these math subjects all the time.
