About Jocelyn

Are you looking for an SAT Expert? A Math Mentor at any level? I am a caring, intelligent and entertaining tutor with over 7 years of experience working with high schoolers in SAT prep and in all levels of Math from Algebra I and Geometry through Calculus. I have a deep love of all things mathematical, and I find teaching reading strategies, writing techniques and even grammar rules to be a delight.

I recently moved here from NYC, where I spent two years working for a premium SAT test prep company. I've helped more than 100 students reach their highest potential on test day, and, to put my money where my mouth is, have taken and aced the SAT myself multiple times (Three perfect 2400s so far - and one 2390, GRRR!). I'm looking for students who want to work hard to do the best they can in their academic lives, and want an excellent guide to help them maximize their achievements.

What I do:
*Complete SAT preparation (standard prep runs 10-15 sessions, and is also excellent practice for improving college level study habits)
*Mentoring in all levels of Math from the basics through Calculus (Math is a skill that can be developed, not just a natural instinct that people have or don't have. Attitude is everything.)

Also, I am an actress, a yogi and a pianist; I've traveled all over and I make a mean spaghetti sauce (thanks, Mom!).

If we don't make a good match, WyzAnt won't charge you for the first session. Let's meet!

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.

Yoga

I completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Rising Lotus Yoga in Sherman Oaks, CA in the fall of 2010. The instruction included philosophy, anatomy, and teaching practice. I have also been a dedicated practitioner of yoga for 10 years. I studied at Jivamukti and Park Slope Yoga in NYC, I studied the Ashtanga Primary Series in Seattle with Troy Lucero, and I've been practicing a vinyasa flow style of yoga (a blend of ashtanga and iyengar yoga) regularly at Rising Lotus Yoga for the last year and a half.

Absolutely the best tutor ever! — Jocelyn is a remarkable tutor in every way. She is effective, inspirational, makes her sessions fascinating. She is smart enough to know when a kid is coasting and calls them on it, in a very lighthearted way. She is smart as a whip. She is filled with positive energy and finally gets superb results. I have two kids who were tutored simultaneously for the SAT and ACT tests. They could not be more ...
