About Simon


Bio

I have been tutoring on a part-time basis for years and am very proud that 3 of my students achieved perfect math scores on their SAT. I start by explaining how to prepare for the test, review the math concepts and time management, and explain substitution techniques to make complex problems easy. One of the best compliments that I have received was that I made math fun, understandable and enjoyable. Bottom line is that I build math confidence and improve math scores.

I have been tutoring on a part-time basis for years and am very proud that 3 of my students achieved perfect math scores on their SAT.

I held a teaching assistantship while studying for my MA and have always enjoyed teaching. My full-time career is in financial services, which means I present (or explain) new systems to corporations and I have to be good at it. I pride myself on being able to communicate and I can present concepts in understandable terms. This ability enables me to prepare students for their SAT, ACT Math tests and help them understand Algebra, Geometry, and basic math.

Logic

As a Math major at Rutgers University; logic was part of my diploma requirements. I enjoyed this course and did very well. I also found that the logic course provided me with a solid base for other subjects, as well as for business because logical thinking is a requirement for making good decisions. I have the experience, the patience, and the knowledge to effectively tutor this subject.

Great Praxis Tips

Simon helped me with my Math Praxis review. We specifically looked at Probability, Linear Equation and Geometry problems. Simon helped me to ease the stress that I was feeling in re-taking the test and was very encouraging. He said I knew the stuff and encouraged me to approach the test with confidence. He gave me tips that would help me finish the test faster. It was great working with Simon. I would recommend him to anyone.

Trisha, 2 lessons with Simon

Very patient!

I'm really stubborn when it comes to math, but he is so patient and is so nice about re explaining answers to questions when I needed him to.

Demiana, 3 lessons with Simon

Very knowledegable; excellent results.

Simon tutored my son in math, including SAT prep, for over a year; the results were excellent including a 680 on the Math SAT. I would strongly recommend Simon for math-related subjects.

Alexander, 30 lessons with Simon

Great tutor!

My daughter was reluctant to get tutoring in the beginning, but that quickly changed after her first session with Simon. Simon was patient, encouraging and worked very well with her. He gave my daughter the confidence she needed. She was already doing well in class but she wanted to do better. And working with Simon did just that. Her grades went up and she felt very good about that. We will definitely recommend Simon to anyone.

Great Math Lesson

Simon is a fantastic tutor, he actively listens to the needs of the student and takes time to engage in ways that support the individual learning style of the student. He has a great command of Math and know how to make the complex very simple.

Irene, 3 lessons with Simon

Simon is a great tutor!

Simon is a very patient tutor who gave my daughter a lot of confidence and lessened her anxiety about taking the SATs and ACTs. She enjoyed working with him, and hopes to continue to do well with Simon's help. We would highly recommend Simon to anyone considering a tutor.

Excellent Results

We highly recommend Simon. Simon worked with our older son to prepare for the GMAT. As a result of Simon's help, our son's GMAT score was so high he was awarded a 75% tuition scholarship toward his MS in Accounting. We are so satisfied with Simon, our High School son is working with Simon to prepare for the PSAT.
