I received a BA (2011) in mathematics from Bard College. In addition I also attended a prestigious REU and the New York Academy of Sciences Science and research training program. My preliminary college work was at The University of California Santa Cruz.
I provide lessons that are concise, clear, and correct. A typical lesson/session may include an amount of time spent on reading and an amount of time doing math.
I never charge for a lesson in which the student is not completely satisfied.
In a typical lesson two hours are scheduled; the first is spent doing math and the second is spent doing reading/writing.
Of considerable importance: I use dynamic, non-linear teaching patterns to teach the SAT material. Students gain an analytic, conceptually rich understanding of all topics on the SAT. This includes the tried and true study oriented academic habits, or smart tricks and techniques such as process of elimination and back substitution.
My unique approach to the SAT involves very little memorization. It is not tedious or monotonous.
I can also provide advice and referrals for the type of testing needed to receive extended time on the SAT (time and a half or double time).
I work on both math and reading sections. Some writing practice may also be included.
Unlike your boring english and or math professors, I deliver exceptional eloquence that provokes your interest! It’s not rare that students get custom, fun-filled learning tools that get them ahead. Expect about 100 points increase in your testing.
In making your choice to with an individual you also understand that I respect your individuality. I also work with students who have disabilities.
You are getting the value driven investment at an industry standard. In working with me you receive the pedigree (A bachelor's and a high score on the SAT). That gets you tutoring which can’t be beat.
