In person: $125/hour. Online: $75/hour.

(PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING ME: I tutor in person and online. In person I only tutor in the Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Vinings, Brookhaven, Dunwoody and Midtown areas. If you live outside of these areas, you could either meet me at a coffee shop, or online through WyzAnt's online platform. WyzAnt's platform consists of video, audio, chat and whiteboard and is a very effective and convenient learning and tutoring tool. If you would like to try it, let me know and we will schedule a 'tour'. Thanks.)

My name is Anthon, and I'm excited to have the opportunity to be your or your child's tutor.

I have tutored for more than 10 years and have helped hundreds of students improve their test scores and grades, and I have been rewarded as a top 100 WyzAnt tutor nationwide (50,000+ tutors).

I have a Ph.D. from one of the top universities in the country and have received several awards and scholarships. I love admission tests and have scored in the 99th percentile for all tests that I tutor (SAT, ACT, GRE and GMAT).

Credentials are only half the battle though. The other half is knowing how to explain and relate difficult concepts in a fun and interesting way that not only makes sense for the students, but will stick with them.

I review concepts until it's clear that the student has mastered them, and new ones are introduced only when the student is ready. In addition to increasing my students' scores, I help students take ownership of their learning, with the goal of making them an independent and successful student.

I look forward to helping you or your child to achieve your/their goals and to bringing fun back to education.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra ever since I was in high school. Unlike many, fortunately math comes naturally for me. More importantly I am able to explain the concepts in a way that makes sense to struggling students. I have turned many struggling students into successful math students that even enjoy it again and hope to continue doing that for a long time.

Dutch

I am originally from the Netherlands and Dutch is my native language. I have helped several students in the U.S. with Dutch. Apart from fully knowing the Dutch language, I speak 3 other languages fluently, so I know what it is like to learn a language.

Geometry

Geometry is a more visual type of math and many students that are excellent in Algebra, struggle with Geometry. It doesn't have to be that hard if you have the right teacher/tutor and if you are willing to study (and memorize!) theorems and postulates. I have tutored Geometry for 10+ years and will help you 'see' math in an effective way.

Physics

I have a passion for Physics. Everything around us can somehow traced back to the laws of Physics, which I think is very fascinating. I have tutored Physics for over 10 years and believe my success with students comes from being able to relate physics concepts to day to day experiences and examples. This makes it much easier to understand, and maybe even more important, it makes it a lot more interesting and fun for the student.

SAT Math

I love standardized tests and have scored within the 99th percentile for all tests I tutor. I have been able to consistently help my students increase their SAT scores significantly by reviewing all math concepts that one needs to know for each test, and by teaching strategies like substitution, back-solving, and calculator elimination.
