I have successfully taught SAT strategies to high school students both in a classroom setting and in private tutoring sessions with one of the top SAT prep companies in the country. I have also tutored students privately in all aspects of the SAT exam, math and physics. As a result, I have had the opportunity to teach students who functioned below, at, and above grade level. This allowed me to understand the varying needs of each group and to tailor my teaching style accordingly. I have a consistent track record of improving student performance... I have improved student SAT scores by up to 540 points under my tutelage over a period of just over two months! I am skilled in keeping students engaged and interested in the material, and my friendly approach has proven effective in keeping students interested and eager to learn more. I encourage students to take academic risks, establish high expectations and target multiple learning styles for effective dissemination of the material.
Given a limited time period, the most effective way to increase score potential when taking the SAT is 1) learning exactly how the exam is structured and how questions are asked, 2) learning strategies on how to best tackle not only each section of the exam, but how to identify and best approach the different types of questions in each section.
Not enough students (and unfortunately, tutors) understand that the needs of a student hoping for a score of 1500 differ from those of a student hoping for a score of 2000... a student striving for a perfect score will have even more unique requirements.
During my initial consultation, I create a plan based on the needs and desires of the student and parent/s. This approach is irrespective of whether our goals are short, medium or long term, or whether the client's needs are tutoring for the SAT, remedial tutoring, or long-term support during the school year.
