Experienced high school tutor and teacher of 40 years. Twenty years teaching in public schools and twenty years teaching in private schools. B.S.Ed. and M.S.Ed. in mathematics. Comfortable with classes from arithmetic through calculus. High average SAT scores in the past twenty years. I have been tutoring individuals since college and enjoy pupils of all ages. High school mathematics is a teachable skill available to everyone and all educated citizens should be knowledgeable through Calculus I.
Methods include academic dialogue as a pedagogical technique, didactic teaching, and lots of guided practice. Few good things result from a quick application, such as readying for the SAT I or II in a month. This generally does not work well for students. This test is more about how you use what you know rather than just what you know.
A high percentage of my students graduate from college as mathematics or applied mathematical science majors. Many local schools like NCSU or UNC Chapel Hill accept my students as well as schools like Princeton or Emory.
