About Torrey


Bio

My goals as a tutor revolve around uncovering teaching methods that work best for every individual. In keeping with that goal, I monitor new academic research in the cognitive & education fields on a weekly basis for different methodologies. I have been a private tutor since my freshman year of college in 2009 and have tutored more than 90 students in the last five years. Because I am motivated by my own acquisition of knowledge, I have been able to tutor in many different subjects.

My goals as a tutor revolve around uncovering teaching methods that work best for every individual. In keeping with that goal, I monitor new academic research in the cognitive & education fields on a weekly basis for different methodologies. I have been a private tutor since my freshman year of college in 2009 and have tutored more than 90 students in the last five years. Because I am motivated by my own acquisition of knowledge, I have been able to tutor in many different subjects.

I specialize in standardized test preparation including all sections of the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and ASVAB. I achieved the highest SAT score in my graduating class and was awarded an academic scholarship for my efforts. For military applicants, I scored within the 98th percentile nationwide on the ASVAB and have been recommended by many students for my tutoring abilities in that area.

My strongest tutoring subjects include the topics that I have tutored for at the college-level including general mathematics (pre-algebra, algebra I/II, geometry, trigonometry, integral and differential calculus, differential equations) and descriptive and inferential statistics with the statistical software SPSS, SAS, and R.

In addition to the topics I tutor for at the college-level and below, I have also tutored the following at the K-12 level: English, biology, chemistry, physical science, and physics.

I am well-versed in differing tutoring methods of students with various mental disadvantages including ADD/ADHD, Asperger's/Autism spectrum, and dyslexia/dysgraphia. I can provide patient guidance to all students.

Excellent tutor! Highly recommend!!!!! Our daughter will be attending USMA now!!

Torrey is an excellent math tutor! Our daughter wanted to attend USMA and while she had received a congressional nomination for USMA and was told she blew away the competition in her interview, was told her math scores needed improved upon on the SAT. After having looked at tutoring places such as Kumon or Huntington and the like, we found WyzAnt would be better for us as we needed highly customized tutoring, quickly and for days upon end for our daughter. We found Torrey and he was on our calendar for at least two months in a row for about six days a week!! Torrey has amazing character, excellent communication and worked so well with our daughter and our schedule. Our daughter felt that she and Torrey connected very well and he helped her so much!! Not only did he fill in many gaps she had in math, but she said she really enjoyed math after she understood it!!! This was a huge boost in her confidence and she raised her scores considerably with lots of tutoring and hard work! We are proud to say that she received an appointment to USMA and we can honestly say, she wouldn't have been able to bring up her math score without him! Torrey would be excellent for tutoring in ACT, SAT, Statistics, Algebra and Geometry as well as probably any other math you may need help with! Thank you so much Torrey! I've waited for this day to leave you a review so I could add that our daughter is USMA West Point Bound!!

Meets Student's Needs

Torrey has a relaxed way about him that puts my son at ease. He is currently providing homework help to my 8th grade son and addresses gaps in his understanding of the material. In working with Torrey, my son's self-confidence in Math has improved. We highly recommend Torrey!

Very Patient

Torrey helped me understand the statistics lesson at hand. If I do not understand it, he will continue to rephrase and adjust the content so that it is broken down to terms that I can intellectually grasp. Overall great tutor.

Great tutor but tough to reach

Exceptional tutor, no wasting of time. The way he explain and broke down the math problems made them very easy to comprehend. I would highly recommend this tutor to any student or adult. Great Job!

Excellent!

Torrey is an excellent tutor, and is very knowledgeable and works very well with my son regarding several high school subjects. He keeps my son attentive and productive while accomplishing school lessons. Torrey is always prompt, very polite and "low key" which is terrific for our busy household. I would strongly recommend him for tutoring, as long as he still has time for my son as well! Thank you.
