I taught middle school and high school science/math off and on for over 25 years along with raising 4 boys. I have been tutoring for the last 5 years specializing in study skills, SAT, and teaching students how to be successful in any class they are taking. I work with students for as little as 3 months to over 2 years. I use humor and positive reinforcement to show each student their potential. I am excited about tutoring any student, any age, in any subject. I am extremely flexible about meeting times and meeting places. If there is a last minute test or an essay to grade, I'll meet with my students to help them be prepared. Learning really is fun.
SAT math is about knowing which questions to answer and learning how to use the time as your friend. I can show you how to get a 600 on the math section as long as you are pretty good at math and have taken algebra 2.
The strategies for SAT reading involve using the time limit to your advantage. It is also not about comprehension and there are also strategies to use with two comparing readings. I teach many strategies to help students succeed on the SAT.
I have been teaching SAT prep for over 5 years both one-on-one and in groups. The most important part of the SAT writing is writing a great essay. I have the template that the SAT readers are looking for so my students always score high on the essay. I also have strategies for the other 2 writing sections including vocabulary.
