I have a Regents diploma from Stuyvesant HS.
Having passed all the Regents from Math to Earth Science, I can really help others pass these dreaded assessment exams. In addition, a dozen or so students I have tutored have passed their Regents thanks to my help.
I received a 770 on the Math section of the SATs, took Calculus in college, and have tutored many students for the SATs, multiple Regents exams as well as the SHSAT.
In addition, I know many test taking strategies for solving problems ranging from Math to Critical Reading problems.
The SAT Reading section is one that I am very familiar with. Having taken the SATs twice, Reading was my main focus the second time. With about a 100 point increase, I know the main areas to target and how to do so.
This section tends to be the hardest for most students taking the SATs, and therefore must be taken especially seriously.
Writing is the third section of the SAT, and tends to be least focused on. However, for liberal arts majors, a good score is key to getting accepted into a preferred college. Having scored a 700 on this section as well as years of additional practice in college level classes, I am confident in my writing skills. In addition, there are several methods I have employed to tutoring students and helping them improve their writing skills.
History is one of my main passions. In addition to geography, we can only learn from our mistakes. History is bound to repeat itself if we are ignorant of it, and thus knowing one's history s crucial to progressing as a human being.
I have taken many courses in history, ranging from World History to American History.
I enjoy writing persuasive essays, received a 700 on the writing portion of the SATs, and took many upper English and writing courses in college. My writing incorporates complex ideas as well as terminology to more effectively convey ideas.
In addition, I have experience writing college admissions essays, including scholarship papers.
Reading good material is perhaps the best way of improving one's writing skills.
