I am a Veteran of the AMERICORPS program, wherein my responsibilities included teaching English and Mathematics to elementary school children of poor and underdeveloped communities in the United States.

I have a General IQ score of 140. This places me in the 99th percentile of test takers. I can provide official documentation of these scores upon request.

For the year 2016, I placed within the top 100 Wyzant tutors in the United States, placing me in the top 0.2% of Wyzant tutors in the United States.

I was nationally ranked on Wyzant during the week of September 5, 2016, fluctuating between the national rankings of #2, #3, #4, and #5. Only the top five tutors in the country are nationally ranked at any particular time on the Wyzant ranking system. In that period, I was also locally ranked #1 within a 50-mile radius of the Los Angeles area.

I am a professor at CT University. I was previously an SAT Instructor at Elite Educational Institute-Cerritos and Elite Educational Institute-Anaheim Hills. I have over 15 years experience teaching the SAT, the ACT, and the PSAT.

I have published a Philosophy book via Lulu Publishing that is currently for sale in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Sweden, Germany, Japan, India, Belgium, Norway, and the Netherlands. I have also edited a book on Philosophy of Business published by 90 Minute Books Publishing.

Although I was recruited by Harvard University, I would go on to receive my Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from the University of California, Los Angeles. I subsequently received a Certificate of Mastery in a Political Philosophy course at Harvard University via its edX Program.

I am currently in the process of working with Louisiana Baptist University and California Southern University to develop a certificate program in Leadership. The program will be based upon a series of books published by 90 Minute Books of which I will be the Chief Editor.

My students have been admitted to many colleges and universities, like the California Institute of Technology, Stanford, Yale, Dartmouth, UPenn, Johns Hopkins, Pomona College, Pitzer College, UCLA, UC Berkeley, NYU, USC, and Notre Dame, as well as various US Medical Schools, including the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Additionally, one of them was just drafted by the NFL's Green Bay Packers.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

I am an avid student of English vocabulary, and I always tell my students that when they come across a word they don't know, they will develop exactly one of two habits: a habit of looking up words they don't know or a habit of not looking up words they don't know. I instruct them that they are better off developing a good habit rather than a bad one.

And, my best improved ACT English pupil increased his score from a 20 (50th percentile) to a 29 (90th percentile) after about seven lessons, which did not focus exclusively on the English component. Despite that the ACT English test is a grammar test, insofar as the test remains to be an English test nonetheless, the multiple-choice format of the exam, which presumes a universality in answers, presents a complication in the context of English as not having universal answers for the questions it asks. Recently, I myself scored an ACT Composite score of a 32 (98th percentile) on a formal examination, which I can provide official documentation of upon request. My best performing ACT pupil scored a Composite score of 33 (99th percentile).

SSAT,

SSAT

The SSAT and the SAT are very similar standardized examinations. In this context, my most prominent qualification for the SSAT is as follows. I was a constructed response scorer for the new SAT for the Educational Testing Service (ETS), which is the company responsible for the development of the SAT examination. I was employed by this prestigious organization to score essays from actual SAT examinations administered across the United States and the rest of the world. The following is a listing of my accomplishments with the SSAT examination: (1) My best scoring SSAT pupil scored a 2265 (97th percentile); (2) My best scoring SSAT Quantitative pupil scored a perfect 800 (99th percentile); (3) My best scoring SSAT Verbal pupil scored a 767 (95th percentile). Recently, I myself scored an SAT Composite score of 1450 (98th percentile) on a formal examination, which I can provide official documentation of upon request.

First session went well.

This was our first session, but Clement arrived on time and jumped in quickly. He was courteous and helpful. We will be scheduling more sessions with him in the future.

Very good SAT Tutor

We worked through Reading and Writing sections - Clement offered good insight and analysis into what was being done wrong and how to fix it. Overall highly recommend Clement as a tutor for the SAT.

Winston is doing a phenomenal job with the SAT reading section. He is steadily and consistently improving his skill in that section of the examination. His SAT writing skill was already rather strong before we began tutoring, but where I feel that I can be the most help for him will be the SAT essay. I will continue to do my best to ensure his development and progress.

Smart and patient tutor

Clement taught my son an SAT lesson. He is a smart and knowledgeable and patient tutor. My son likes him. We will continue to have more lessons with him in the future. Thanks for him to help with my son.

It has been a privilege and delight working with your son. He is an excellent math student, and I am very, very much impressed as to how much math he can do in his head without writing anything down !! I will continue to supervise his progress in English, especially as it seems that he needs me more in that subject than that of any other of standardized test prep. Thank you again for the great feedback !!

Knowledgeable and straightforward

Clement is knowledgeable and patient. He is straight forward, gets the lessons done within the timeframe allotted; he is always on time. He is methodical in his approach and makes the effort to work with my daughter in ensuring that my daughter understands the task at hand.

Thank you very much. Your feedback is very much considered and appreciated.

Helpful and Methodical

Clement was very methodical in his approach to begin SAT/ACT instructions and gave Tom an initial test to gauge his level for further help. We found him to be someone that we feel will propel Tom in his understanding of Math required for a better score on the upcoming tests.

Yantong, 7 lessons with Clement
Tutor responded:

I have always believed in a systematic approach to anything, including mathematical standardized examination prep. The SAT Math and ACT Math are unique tests of their own right, and each is deserving of careful inspection and scrutiny. A methodical approach greatly assists in deconstructing the complexities each test directs towards its students.
