Macalester College, St. Paul, MN (Economics)
I want to help you identify the best strategies for raising your SAT scores in all three subject areas. Not only will I help you grasp the topics being tested, I will also help you identify your areas for improvement and teach you how to move more quickly and efficiently through the test.
I recently graduated magna cum laude from Macalester College with a 3.85 GPA. While there, I TA'd for a year and a half, teaching students mathematical theories and effective writing skills. I am a clear, energetic, and patient communicator. I am especially good at helping students set goals and lay out a plan for success. Sometimes the most daunting part of the SAT can be figuring out what steps you should be taking-- as your tutor I will eliminate this anxiety, leaving you the time and energy to focus on the material.
I've taught more than fifty students the math skills necessary to succeed in higher-level economics courses. I'm especially experienced in teaching algebra and trigonometry, graphical analysis, and logical reasoning, all of which are key areas on the SAT Math portion.
I've also assisted students with understanding complicated course texts and writing clearly and persuasively. In order to succeed in the Reading and Writing portions of the SAT you will need knowledge of grammar, broad vocabulary, and an ability to cut through long text to the central point-- these are skills I have experience teaching.
If you think we'd be a good fit, don't hesitate to contact me so we can set up a time to meet. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.
