Make SAT Math a walk in the park.
I have a complete set of BEST SOLUTIONS to *every single problem* in College Board's Official Guide - that's 11 full-length tests. Students will do these tests on their own; in class, we'll work exclusively with questions they missed the first time around. First, I will have you walk me through your thought process - this will reveal where you went astray, and what concepts and tricks you're missing from your arsenal. Then I will guide you gradually with questions and hints, helping you "find" the best solution. Finally, I will have you do the problem again - on the spot, unassisted this time - to guarantee that you've mastered it - and that you've committed its solution to memory. We will also use materials that take you systematically through each of the sub-disciplines and question types that constitute the SAT Math test. Students will take pictures of questions they get wrong (smart phones come in handy here) and return to them periodically to ensure that nothing slips through the cracks.
Minimize class time; maximize results.
Near-perfect scores are absolutely attainable, but you can't afford to waste time. Work that can be done on your own, I will assign - copiously - as homework; work that can only be done in real time with a tutor, we will do in class. Every minute of class will be leveraged so that it packs the absolute maximum punch. The bottom line: crank up the time you spend with the test, and maximize how effectively our time (and your money!) is spent.
Long-term tutoring available.
For students with high aspirations but a long way to go, a longer period of tutoring becomes necessary. I have extensive experience with such students, and am happy to help them bridge the gap. The key is learning at your comfort level, but achieving rapid progress via high volume and efficiency; we will start with materials appropriate to your level, and work systematically up to near perfect score levels.
