My name is Anthon. I have tutored hundreds of students over the last 15+ years and have spent thousands of hours creating learning resources and perfecting my curriculum and methods for improving students’ scores and confidence. I have worked with many tutoring programs, schools, methods, and courses and I know what works best. More importantly, I know how to get the best results! As an effective tutor, I have been rewarded as a top 100 Wyzant tutor nationwide.

SAT & ACT:

The results that my students have gotten speak for themselves: an average of 300+ points increase on the SAT and an average of 5+ points increase on the ACT. This is higher than any tutoring program or course out there, especially compared to the large so-called ‘elite’ companies.

I have tutored students at all levels. From those looking for a perfect score, applying to Harvard, Yale, MIT and the like, to students just barely keeping up in high school, looking for a score high enough to attend a local college.

My ACT and SAT tutoring sessions will take place online through Wyzant's platform with audio, video, chat and whiteboard. My tutoring availability is limited though: to guarantee that each of my students get the absolute highest quality tutoring experience, I only take on a limited number of students at one time.

MATH & PHYSICS:

In addition to test prep, I also tutor Math and Physics all the way up to the AP and college level. I have a Ph.D. from one of the top engineering schools in the country and love math and science. Especially teaching it. I know how to explain and relate difficult concepts in a fun and interesting way that not only makes sense for the students, but will stick with them. Students often tell me: "when you explain it, it makes total sense, but when my teacher does, I have no clue" or "why can't you just be my teacher?".

In addition to increasing my students' scores, I help students take ownership of their learning, with the goal of making them an independent and successful student. Many of my students become the to-go-to person in class for classmates that need help, or even correct teachers when they make mistakes. The pride I see in their eyes (or their parents') is priceless to me and it's one of the reasons I love what I do!

I look forward to helping you or your child to achieve your/their goals and to bringing fun back to education.

(Note: I currently only have availability to tutor through Wyzant’s online platform)

My ACT and SAT Approach:

Test prep is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. Regardless of the student’s level, my students will take a full-length real practice test before we start. This will serve as a benchmark and as a diagnostic test to identify what the student needs to work on most.

Then, through my systematic individualized approach, we focus on the student’s weaknesses, while elaborating on their strengths. We cover all the math, grammar and linguistic knowledge, as well as the strategies and tactics needed to use this knowledge. Both content and strategies are crucial to do well on the test. We apply all this through a step-by-step learning plan, in which each step will have to be mastered before we move on.

Throughout the process the student will take several other timed tests to keep track of progress and to identify what the student has mastered and what can still be improved.

Part of what you will learn:
-All the math, grammar, and linguistics content you need to know for the test
-Cut the time spend on math problems in half
-Double your reading speed
-Master the few grammar rules that make up the majority of the questions
-Write an essay that will score high every time
-The right strategies to solve math problems that are almost impossible to solve otherwise
-Recognize the different question types quickly and accurately
-Understand SAT or ACT language
-Tackle complicated word problems quickly
-Enhance your test taking speed and accuracy
-Eliminate answers to English questions in seconds
-And much more, including a huge confidence boost

After each session I assign homework and to get the most out of it, and to not waste time and money, I expect my students to be 100% committed and complete the homework on their own.

With the right individualized approach and instruction, any student is capable of achieving SAT and ACT scores higher than they ever imagined possible and they will soon realize that it’s not that scary after all. I look forward to helping your child improve as well!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra ever since I was in high school. Unlike many, fortunately math comes naturally for me. More importantly I am able to explain the concepts in a way that makes sense to struggling students. I have turned many struggling students into successful math students that even enjoy it again and hope to continue doing that for a long time.

Calculus,

Calculus

I tutor Calculus up to the AP level (both AB and BC). I have several degrees in Engineering, so I have done more calculus in my life than was probably useful, but I love teaching others how to make sense out of calculus and how to simplify it so much that it becomes understandable. I have helped many calculus students, so send me an email and we can get started!
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is a more visual type of math and many students that are excellent in Algebra, struggle with Geometry. It doesn't have to be that hard if you have the right teacher/tutor and if you are willing to study (and memorize!) theorems and postulates. I have tutored Geometry for 10+ years and will help you 'see' math in an effective way.
Physics,

Physics

I have a passion for Physics. Everything around us can somehow traced back to the laws of Physics, which I think is very fascinating. I have tutored Physics for over 10 years and believe my success with students comes from being able to relate physics concepts to day to day experiences and examples. This makes it much easier to understand, and maybe even more important, it makes it a lot more interesting and fun for the student.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus includes a lot of trig and that is scary. It doesn't have to be though with the right instruction. I love teaching others how to make sense out of precalculus and how to simplify it so much that it becomes understandable. I have helped many precalculus students see the light, increase their scores, and become the student to whom classmates go for help.

last minute help

Dr. A was able to help my son at the last minute before a test to gain some understanding of the material. Test results weren't great but much better than quiz the day before. We will continue with Dr. A until my son has a firm understanding and until his grade is back in the acceptable range.

Margo, 11 lessons with Dr. Anthon

Incredible tutor!

Dr. Anthon has been my tutor for math and science for the past 7+ years and he has helped me immensely! I cannot imagine finding a better tutor! It's very hard for me to understand math and science concepts, but he is one of the few teachers I've had that always finds a way to explain it to where it makes sense to me. He is very patient and understands how different people learn and is incredibly accommodating to all types and thinkers! 10/10!

Alyson, 18 lessons with Dr. Anthon

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

AMAZING TUTOR!!! He’s been saving my math grades since I was in 7th grade and I’m a freshman in college now and I still meet with him every week!! He’s taught me geometry, trig, algebra 1 and 2, precal, calculus, statistics, and now math modeling.

CaroleAnne, 53 lessons with Dr. Anthon

SAT prep without a lot of time

Dr. Anthon did another amazing job. He has helped us in the past with my daughter and her prep on the ACT. We went back to him for help with our son on his SAT prep. He was amazing - AGAIN!!! Dr. Anthon was able to quickly identify where he needed help and focus on that with him and it really helped. My son had a pretty good score but we knew he could improve with some help from Dr. Anthon. He was scoring around 1260 before he worked with Dr. Anthon and within 4 weeks he was scoring in the 1400s and 1500s and even 1600 on one practice test. We will see what his score is on the actual test he just took but I'm confident it will be higher than his last actual test based on Dr. Anthon's help and the practice tests. Thank you, Dr. Anthon!

Kevin, 15 lessons with Dr. Anthon

Excellent tutor

Anthon has helped my son, a high school junior, become a lot more confident in his physics class. He is teaching him how to approach physics problems that is very helpful. Anthon is also helping my son to prepare for the ACT, especially with math where my son is already improving his scores. His communication is excellent and timely and he has been flexible with a tutoring schedule as my son has multiple extracurricular activities and sometimes needs to change last minute.

Teresa, 22 lessons with Dr. Anthon

Excellent SAT Prep

My daughter is only a few lessons into her SAT review and already improving on her skills and strategies to take the exam. We plan on continuing to learn new strategies with Dr. Anthon. My daughter has enjoyed her tutoring sessions and they have covered a lot of material, focusing on the areas of greatest opportunity first.

Kim, 10 lessons with Dr. Anthon

Great explanations and strategies for the SAT

During our session we went over the reading and writing section of the practice test I took earlier. We went over the questions I missed and afterwards he gave me different strategies to improve my score. He was really helpful and insightful in explaining the right answers. After our session he assigned some homework. He is a really great tutor and I would recommend him to anyone.

Lauren, 2 lessons with Dr. Anthon

Knowledgeable and patient

Dr Anthon was able to answer any question. He teaches with complete clarification. Dr anthon was able to switch between Bc calc and ap physics with complete ease.

Sarah, 41 lessons with Dr. Anthon

Highly experienced and knowledgeable

Anthon is tutoring honors precalcus to my son. We have only had one session with him, but it is very evident that he knows what he is doing and is very good at it. He was very quick to identify my son's weaknessses and come up with a strategy to best help him. I am already seeing a difference in my son's confidence level! I was also very impressed at his professionalism and would highly recommend him to anyone.
