Want to improve your SAT math score by 100+ points? Your ACT Math score by 8+ points? The best test takers are prepared test takers. Scoring well on these tests requires practice, honing your math skills, and learning the best test-taking strategies. I will clearly teach you the underlying concepts and problem solving techniques, reinforced with focused practice, versus confusing techniques that may be forgotten on test day. My students have increased their SAT math scores by an average of 130 points, their ACT math scores by an average of 8 points, and I recently tutored a student who improved their PSAT score from 194 to 225, and is recognized as a National Merit SemiFinalist. My goal is to unlock your potential and enable you to achieve your best score.

I enjoy working with students to grasp math concepts for Pre-Calc, Trig, and Algebra. I work in a math lab in a private school, working each week to explain math problems to students in a way they understand. I have helped failing students pass, and moved students from "Bs" to "As".

I have an engineering degree from Texas A&M, a master's degree in Computer Engineering from SMU, and currently teach SAT/ACT preparation classes at a private high school, working with students of varying learning styles. As I work with students to help them understand math problems, they often say "is that all I have to do?" Typical math problems on these tests can be solved in just a few lines of work, once you know the proper approach. I enjoy working with students and get excited along with students when they see their tests scores improve. My goal is for each student to achieve their best score on these tests to improve their chances of being admitted to the college of their choice, and increase their chances to earn college scholarships.

I live in the Richardson area and I will meet you at your home or a local library. Sign up today and begin increasing your confidence and test scores! Thank you and I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I teach an ACT prep class at a private school, helping students grasp underlying concepts so they can work a variety of problems. Students improve an average of 6+ points. I show students multiple methods so they learn new approaches and pick the one that makes most sense.

ACT Science

I teach an ACT prep class at a private high school and students improve an average of 6+ points by the end of the course. I teach and refresh students the underlying concepts so students can work a variety of problems. I also show students how to work problems more quickly so they can complete the test.

College Counseling

I work in a private school and regularly counsel parents and their students regarding preparation for college and preparing for the admission process. I am knowledgeable in the areas of writing college essays, placement testing, and preparing for college interviews.

Discrete Math

I have taken math through Calculus III and Differential Equations in college, and have a Master's Degree in Computer Engineering, and I have used math in my work for many years. Additionally, I have taught a College Math course at a private high school, which covers a variety of concepts, many similar to Discrete Math.

PSAT

The best PSAT test takers are prepared test takers. Students improve their math score by 10+ points after coaching. I identify growth areas after giving an assessment, and ensure students understand the underlying concepts. Students practice using sample tests and see improvement after 4-5 sessions. I have helped two students achieve Semifinalist status (224+ scores).
