I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn test taking skills whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 8 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I taught SAT literature and writing for my entire time in Shanghai, helping students learn the intricacies of the grammar and the best way to craft an essay. Now that the test is changing, I look forward to changing with it.

"My son was scheduled for the end of the school year Regents Algebra 1 the next day after we hired Chris on this platform. Chris was an excellent tutor and very experienced. He did the handholding patiently and helped my son gain new insights to problem solving. I highly recommend Chris and plan on using his services for my son's next school year more regularly!"

He broke down the math problems to the basics and never gave up until I understood the problem completely. He is professional and was extremely patient with me throughout our tutoring sessions. I would most definitely work with him again! Thank you Daniel!!!"

"I hired Matt based on positive reviews. What a great choice! My daughter had taken the SAT 3 times before contacting Matt. She was 30 points away from qualifying for a  substantial scholarship. With only one more chance and 3 weeks to prepare, I decided  to give Matt a chance. He was very professional, punctual, and made my daughter feel at ease. He provided study materials and gave very helpful instructions and tips. Her  score went up an unbelievable 60 points in 3 weeks! She was able to get the scholarship and is set to start college in 3 weeks. I would recommend him to anyone  and will definitely use him again."
