Geometry
Under my guidance, students study Geometry as a mathematical system through the deductive development of relationships in the plane and space developed intuitively in previous years. Students study congruent segments and angles, circle chords, secants and tangent segments, parallel and perpendicular lines, angle measure in triangles, direct and indirect triangle congruence and similarity, proofs, solids of revolution, logic, similar triangles, quadrilaterals, transformations, the Pythagorean Theorem,...

PSAT
The preparation for MATH portion of PSAT test is similar to that for the SAT math. Please see my description for the SAT Math exam. Process is identical, except we would be working from PSAT prep books instead of SAT prep books.
SSAT
The preparation for that math portion of the SSAT test is similar to that for the SAT math test. Please see my description for the SAT Math exam. The process is identical, except we would be working from SSAT prep books instead of SAT prep books.
ACT Math
The preparation for the MATH portion of ACT test is similar to that for the SAT math. Please see my description for the SAT Math exam. Process is identical, except we would be working from ACT prep books instead of SAT prep books. ACT does not penalize for guessing, so ALWAYS answer every question.

Elementary (K-6th)
I have successfully worked with students of all ages, as young as 4 years old. Since 2003, I have tutored small children via a weekend mentoring program at my local church. From 2009 - 2011, I voluntarily worked with a local autistic non-profit organization, providing day-care services to autistic children for a 4 hour period on weekends. I am particularly good at helping young students improve their math skills. I realize the importance of making sure young students have a total grasp of math...
