"I am a Massachusetts licensed mathematics teacher, and tutor of 9+ years - including SAT Math and English for The Princeton Review. Since 2010, I have tutored students in Standardized Tests (SAT, ACT, GRE, ASVAB, GED), K-12 Math, Chess, Martial Arts, and even Guitar. I write custom practice problems and create worksheets so students can benefit from additional assignments.

My SAT, ACT, GED (High School Equivalency Exam) tutoring is focused on a two tier approach: content and strategy. I teach both the academic concepts tested (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, etc.), as well as the best methods for problem solving (Picking Your Own Number, Plugging In, etc.). Standardized tests, especially the SAT, ACT, and GED are designed to be tricky, so understanding how to approach a math problem is at least as important as knowing the content being tested. For this reason, I show my students time saving tips, tricks, and shortcuts that can increase scores on the SAT, ACT, and GED math sections. I help instill confidence and reduce test anxiety through positive reinforcement, so students believe in their abilities to succeed.

When I tutor for the ASVAB and GRE, I emphasize content review because many students learned the material years ago and have not practiced it since high school or even earlier. I fill academic gaps and teach the skills that are necessary for success in those specific tests. Through practice problems and drills, I help familiarize students with the types of questions asked on the ASVAB and GRE, so they are prepared on test day.

My K-12 Academic Math tutoring is based on the philosophy that math is pyramid. Students need to master math from the ground up, so that they can continue to excel in increasingly complex disciplines. For example, Arithmetic is a prerequisite for Algebra 1, and Algebra 1 is a prerequisite for SAT Math. For this reason, I try to fill any academic gaps to ensure that students are ready and prepared for the next level in their math education. I am available to assist" less...
