I have a PhD in Statistics from Stanford University. I have over 30 years experience teaching at the college level. However, for the past 10 years I have been helping younger students. I specialize in preparing students to take the SAT and ACT mathematics tests and have been successful in preparing students to achieve higher scores on both the SAT and the ACT Math and Science sections. I have studied all the various techniques that have been proposed and I have adopted only those that have proven to help the students achieve consistently higher scores. I have also tutored many students in AP Statistics, both on the subject matter as well as the AP exam.

In addition to tutoring the standardized exams, I have also tutored all the basic high school mathematics classes. I have taught at the college level and know the skills required to succeed in today's challenging job environment. Because of my background I am qualified to help students of all ages and abilities from middle school to college level courses. I can provide guidance in both a group and in an individual setting. However, individual training is generally preferred in that I can tailor a program to the specific student. The success of the student is my greatest reward.

ACT Math

For the past 10 years I have had great success tutoring students for both the SAT and ACT math test sections. I have extensively reviewed the various techniques that have been proposed in the literature and selected those that really work. I specifically tailor the approach to the capabilities and goals of each student. I also emphasize those approaches that will assist the student not only on the standardized exams, but also in their standard school mathematics.

I also have a proven approach for tackling the ACT science test. This is a part of the ACT that many studentss find the most challenging.

Algebra 1
