, SHSAT, ISEE
, SAT subject tests in Math (both IC and IIC), GED
, GRE, GMAT
, CLEP, LSAT
I have experience tutoring students with autism
, ADD, ADHD
, and other learning problems.
In preparation for any of the above math-based tests, I focus on imparting deep-level mathematical understanding, and that can only be taught with individual attention. One of my great pleasures is helping students reach moments of epiphany when the light dawns and perplexity gives way to clarity.
Throughout our sessions, I focus on making you think for yourself and develop flexible mastery. Working together, I guide you to the correct solution to difficult test questions, using a Socratic method, leading you step by step in the right direction and without giving you the answers.
Tutoring for many years has afforded me the opportunity to go through most of the available material, and I have pinpointed the techniques and strategies that work most effectively on each question type.
In a conventional classroom setting, many students are unable to keep up with the pace of the assignments or lectures, have conflicting work commitments, or simply are unable to remember the appropriate tips and tricks under the time pressure of the exam.
I’ll help you to put all of the material into perspective, and help you to better understand the tips and tricks that you have learned, so that you will be able to apply the appropriate technique to each new problem that is presented.
I will tailor our sessions together to reflect your abilities, goals, and time-constraints. I also provide much more individual feedback than could be possible in a large classroom, so you will find that time spent with me is much more productive.
Whether you have taken a class before, or if you have just been working on your own--or even if you have not yet begun to study, I can help you improve your score. With guidance and practice, the examination becomes a challenge you can meet with a level head. When you walk into the test center, feeling confident and prepared, you know you will do your very best.
