Hi, my name is Wesley. Having attended both Stuyvesant High School and MIT, I am available to tutor in a variety of math
subjects as well as standardized test preparation
(see below for list).
I have more than 8 years of teaching experience, being a volunteer teacher at the Salvation Army, SCORE! coach, SAT
tutor at AIM Academy, and private tutoring with elementary, middle school, and high school students. Math has always been my passion and I tailor my teaching methods to best match each individual student. Through my experience, I know which tutoring strategies work and which just create busywork. Additionally, I can also recommend which books and study guides to use and how to best prepare for the specific exam.
Most importantly, I will teach a student how to attack the problem and how to think of the solution. Anyone can pick up study guides and practice exam books and go through it while checking their work with solutions at the back. However, the book doesn't tell you what you are doing wrong or how to improve yourself. If you want to be sure to do well on your first attempt, I will teach you how to approach problems, techniques, timing and approaches that cannot be found in any one single study guide but rather a compilation of years of experience and expertise.
I look forward to working with you!
P.S. For reference purposes, my areas of expertise include Pre-Algebra
, Algebra I
& II, Geometry
(AP & college level), and SAT Math
. I can also help you prepare for NY State Regents
, SHSAT, PSAT
, SAT, ACT
, SAT Math Level I & II, GED
, and GMAT
