About Ryeen

Hailing from Stuyvesant High School in New York City, I have been tutoring SAT Math, Reading, and Writing as soon as I completed the exam and gained admission to the top universities in the country, eventually settling with Caltech. I have been tutoring for the SATs and ACTs for ~3 years, and I am very familiar with material presented by third parties such as Barron's, Princeton Review, Kaplan, and Examkrackers. I have mastered the Mathematics, Writing, and Reading sections and have several special tricks for the myriad of problems presented by the SAT and ACT that aren't presented by commercial tutoring products/ services. Furthermore, I have tutored arithmetic, algebra I and II, trigonometry, geometry, and precalculus privately for 2 years.

Tutoring is such a rewarding experience for me because of the progress I am able to track in my students. Identifying the talents and skills each student is graced with, encouraging growth and development of strengths, and fostering a nurturing environment for weaknesses is what I do for my students. My teaching experience is a negativity-free zone! The only requirement is that students come with an open mind and the will to learn. As long as they have these two qualities, progress is inevitable.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can also speak with students and their guardians for a consultation regarding precollege mathematics, the SAT, or the ACT, including any recent changes to material and how to prepare for it. Simply ask for my number after getting in touch with me through Wyzant!
