Hi, I am available to tutor in a variety of math subjects, including standardized test preparation. I graduated from Stuyvesant High School and then from Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a B.S. in Math.
My areas of expertise include Pre-Algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus (AP), and SAT Math. I can also help you prepare for NY State Regents, PSAT, SAT, ACT, Math IC, Math IIC, GED, GRE, GMAT.
My past test scores are as follows:
SAT Math 800
GRE Math 170
AP Calculus BC 5
AP US History 5
SAT Math Level I 780
SAT Math Level II 800
I have more than 6 years of teaching experience, being a volunteer teacher at the Salvation Army, SCORE! coach, SAT tutor at an area 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. I 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 pass on your first attempt with a high score, 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!
I have tutored fellow classmates for the Probability P Exam and they have passed as a result. I have also passed Probability P Exam this past year. I am as comfortable tutoring this subject as I have with calculus and other subjects.
I have taken the Regents with the following grades during high school:
Chemistry - 95
Physics - 98
Biology - 96
Sequential Math I, II, II (though I believe it is referred to now as Math A and Math B) - 98, 97, 98
US History - 100
English - 93
French - 92
Though I am most comfortable with Math, I am fully confident in my ability to teach any or all of these Regent exams. In addition, I am experienced with the Regents testing format. Some subjects like US History have questions that are primarily reading comprehension based and do not actually require knowledge of historical events. I believe the format of the Regents is much less rigorous than other standardized testing and thus there are more testing taking techniques that can be used.
In addition to having taken the SAT Math and receiving 800 in it, I have also taught summer classes for SAT Math at AIM Academy for 2 summers. I feel very comfortable with explaining both the subject material and special test taking techniques throughout the test. I tailor my lessons to help students reach their score goals and will be very frank on how to do so.
Excellent and Conscientious Tutor — Wesley was an excellent tutor in AP Calculus AB. He was well prepared, extremely diligent, and patient. He is very good at explaining complex math concepts. He provided review work and sample exams that helped deepen understanding and build confidence in the subject. With the benefit of his hard work and academic support, test studying and practice translated into a stellar performance on the exam ...
