About Dr. Anthon

Are you looking for great results when it comes to your child’s SAT or ACT score? Or are you looking for better Math or Physics grades? You have come to the right person.

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 and courses and I know what works best. More importantly, I know how to get the best results!

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. As an effective tutor, I have been rewarded as a top 100 Wyzant tutor nationwide.

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.

In addition to test prep, I also tutor Math and Physics all the way up to the AP 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.

I review concepts until it's clear that the student has mastered them, and new ones are introduced only when the student is ready. 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.

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

Contact me to get started! Or if you would like to ‘tour’ Wyzant’s online platform before we get started, email me so we can schedule that.


(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!

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 love standardized tests and have scored perfectly on the ACT. I have been able to consistently help my students increase their ACT scores significantly by reviewing all math concepts that one needs to know for each test, and by teaching strategies like substitution, back-solving, and calculator elimination.

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.

Algebra 2

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

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 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.

GMAT

I love standardized tests and have scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT. I have been able to consistently help my students increase their GMAT scores significantly by reviewing all math, grammar, and language concepts that one needs to know for each test, and by teaching helpful strategies to approach the test effectively.

GRE

I love standardized tests and have scored in the 99th percentile on the GRE. I have been able to consistently help my students increase their GRE scores significantly by reviewing all math, grammar, and language concepts that one needs to know for each test, and by teaching helpful strategies to approach the test effectively.

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.

SAT Math

I love standardized tests and have scored perfectly on the SAT. I have been able to consistently help my students increase their SAT scores significantly by reviewing all math concepts that one needs to know for each test, and by teaching strategies like substitution, back-solving, and calculator elimination.

My daughter just got her February ACT composite score, It is "35"! And this is her first real test. She took an mock test last summer and her composite score was 29 with individual scores somewhere between 26 to 31. I had originally planned for her to take the ACT test three times to get a “superscore” of about "33" so that she is relatively safe for top instate university and has a shot for secon
