My name is Mena. I have a strong background in math with a degree in Actuarial science and have been tutoring the SAT, ACT, Algebra 1&2, and Geometry for over four years. I have extensive knowledge of the testing strategies needed to make the exam fun and easy. I work with students to find areas that need strengthening then work patiently with them to hone their skills. Successful test preparation is largely about demystifying the test through time spent learning the correct approach which I have years of experience doing, with that confidence students can achieve any score they set their minds to.
There is a SPECIAL PRICE if you buy the whole course including all study materials.

Test preparation lessons I have held so far include SAT, GED, GRE, GKT, and ASVAB exams, where the students ranged from 15-50+ years old. Most of my test prep sessions have seemingly been focused on math or science but in reality are focused on problem-solving and test-taking skills, hidden within math and science problems. Learning the material is only the first part of test preparation. Knowing the content, however, does not necessarily guarantee success because many students blank on tests, have test anxiety, or run out of time. The way to solve this problem is NOT to repeat similar problems over and foster memorization because anything that is just memorized can be forgotten on test day. Rather, the way to solve these test-day problems is to ingrain the thought processes into the student's head using problems that may seem vastly unlike one another but are in fact teaching this same concept. When giving a student similar problems as practice, their brain will revert to "what did I

"Colin helped me through the last semester of IB Calculus. He would email me two days before each lesson so he was prepared with a relative lesson plan for our hour long weekly session of review. He even created a video explaining a topic I was stuck on and sent it to me after our weekly session. I wouldn’t have gotten an A in the last semester without him. Thanks Colin."

"Nick is a wonderful teacher, he is knowledgeable and perceptive. I first came to Nick for help on my essay for my college application. He was able to help me narrow down the options of topics to write about so that I could confidently write about a topic I am passionate about. He continued to help me outline and structure the paper so that it would be organized and academically acceptable, and finally, he helped with editing so that the final copy was ready. A few months later I received my letter of acceptance.
After helping with my college application essay, Nick continued tutoring me through my semester at Community College. he taught me how to do a close reading, to arrange paragraphs, and to better phrase my ideas. He offered new ways to strengthen my writing. Nick is so patient and full of encouragement, I could not have made it through the semester without him."

"Colin's vast knowledge in so many subjects allows him to find unique approaches to teach and tutor. He knows the material so well that he is always able to find ways in which to break down the process of understanding the material. Colin will also breakaway from the point at hand if he feels that there might be some basic knowledge that I might not be aware of, but will contribute to my understanding. He also provided me with techniques that have helped me restructure the way I learn. Overall, a great instructor that has helped me come a long way in my ability to learn."
