About Casey

Hi, I am a current undergraduate at Harvard college. I have experience tutoring all levels of mathematics from elementary math to linear algebra. I am also well versed in test prep, personally having scored perfect scores on the SAT math II subject test and the ACT. Because I am an undergraduate, I am freshly acquainted with the ACT and SAT II math subject test, having just taken them.

As a tutor I am comfortable teaching through the entirety of a concept as well as providing the extra guidance necessary to help students push through a challenging problem. During my lessons, I mostly focus on students practicing and performing each problems on their own, instead of only showing them how.

I encourage students to never adopt the phrase "I'm bad at math" when they struggle or are in need of help. Too many students accept the self-perpetuating fate that they are "bad at math" when all they need is a little more help and practice. I would like to provide that help.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I scored a 36 on the ACT Math and helped lead sections of math classes in my high school.

ACT Reading

I received a 35 on the ACT Reading test. I have extensive experience with the test, and have helped tutor students to improve their score on the ACT Reading test before.

ACT Science

I received a 36 on the ACT Science test's current iteration. A common misconception is that the ACT Science requires knowledge about specific scientific areas, but in reality, to improve on the ACT Science, one must improve critical analysis abilities, something I can aid in improving.

Algebra 1

I took Algebra 1 in 7th grade and use it everyday in my higher level math courses.

Algebra 2

I took algebra 2 my freshman year. I use algebra 2 concepts everyday in my college calculus class.

C

I took CS50 at Harvard, an introductory computer science course taught primarily in C, and received an A. I had also self-taught myself C to participate in competitive programming, in which I was successful.

Calculus

I took AP Calculus BC my freshman year, and later taught classes in my high school.

Linear Algebra

I have taken linear algebra twice, once in high school taught by a 4 year college professor, and I received an A, the second time at Harvard and I again received an A. I have taught sections of class and am qualified to tutor.

Logic

As an applied math concentrator at Harvard, I am required to take a number of philosophy classes in logic which I have done and received A's in.

Python

I self taught myself Python and used it as a Research Assistant at the Stanford Department of Economics to create advanced web crawlers that scrape millions of webpages per day.

SAT Math

I scored a 770 on the SAT Math and have tutored the test before. In addition, I was the most advanced math student in my high school and am now concentrating in applied math at Harvard.
