About Christian

I am a former higher education professional with years of SAT tutoring experience through companies and on my own. Although an increasing number of schools do not require the SAT or ACT, most of the country's most selective colleges and universities still require standardized test scores to demonstrate what they believe are a student's ability to solve problems quickly.

Unfortunately, students do not have equal access to the education required to tackle problems on the SAT. Contrary to popular belief, the SAT is not about memorization. The SAT is designed to present vague problems without clear ways of finding the answers. Finding out the method to an answer is 95% of the challenge on the SAT. I tutor from this perspective.

Most people who have struggled with math believe it to be a fault of their abilities. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Complex mathematical principles are easy only if people have a firm grasp of the fundamentals. Unfortunately, most students in junior high school are not taught to use math to solve problems. Instead, they are taught to follow formulaic rules. As a result, encountering problems that are posed differently can become stressful. I know how to re-teach math to students and to help them overcome anxieties with complex math problems.

I am flexible during the day and I have experience with giving confidence to students tackling the SAT. I work best with students who are personally invested in their success on the SAT and are willing to work through difficult problems without becoming overwhelmed.

With several years of experience with both a nationally-renown test preparation company as well as private tutoring, I am confident that I have the ability to get your student to feel confident in taking the SAT.
