CollegeBoard SAT Classroom Experience from Tier One Tutors

About Wesley
I have been tutoring in math as well as science subjects for two years.

From my involvement as a soccer referee, my participation in University Greek life, and as a teaching assistant and mentor, I've developed a positive mental attitude and I apply it to my work style. I understand the importance of discipline, rules and policies, communicating effectively, and teamwork.

I also teach English and Language Art

*** Lesson Details ***
I am enthusiastic about learning so I am somewhat of a motivational coach. I understand how the learning process works so I always fully focus on clarity to make sense to my students every step of the way. Sometimes a teacher with clarity is hard to come by, which is why my headline is the common sense solution.

We will focus on understanding what areas are most challenging, by simplifying the question, and communicating the nest way for the particular student to learn the topic. I work with the student to develop a strategy and approach that works for them.

About Keith
I have an MBA in finance and more than 10 years of experience in Capital Markets & Banking, as an Investment Analyst. I have conducted financial analysis of companies across most industry sectors, and I have tutored clients through their Executive MBA programs resulting in a 3.96 G.P.A. I specialize in taking the most complex subject matter and simplifying it, as well as, relating it to real world examples.

I can provide tutoring in such business subjects as: accounting, business, financial management, financial analysis, economics, management, marketing, social media training, investments, sales training, technology, marketing, and investment analysis.

I have over four years in toastmasters, which is an incredible organization for improving your communication skills. I attended Adelphi University, Garden City, NY, where I received
a M.B.A in banking and finance. I attended State University at Old Westbury, Old Westbury, NY, where I received a B.S. in business.

My approach is to create a collaborative, non-judgmental learning environment, and my goal is to help you internalize the "learning" so that you own the material, and not just know the subject matter. I invite you to contact me, so that I can learn about what weaknesses or challenges you are facing, and together we can develop tools and strategies around these areas of improvement.

I have been studying martial arts for over 15 years, read a book a week, and am technology savvy.

Scoring at the 99th percentile on the SAT myself, I have tutored the SAT for the Princeton Review, other large test prep companies, and in my own SAT/ACT business for many years. Many of my students score in the 90-95th percentile and above, with some even receiving perfect scores. I have consistently received strong recommendations from those that I tutor the SAT on.

About Albert
I have over 20 years of piano and music education & experience and have formally passed examinations for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). I have trained under renowned piano instructors who have trained in and taught at world-famous music institutions such as the Shanghai Conservatory of Music in Shanghai, China. I have passed one of the ABRSM grade examinations with distinction and was invited to play a piece at Chabot College in Hayward, CA at the annual California ABRSM recital. I have many years of experience performing on-stage in front of audiences in semi-formal settings. I specialize in teaching piano (all levels - from beginner to advanced) to children, teens, and adults. I have taught children as young as 5 years old. In addition to the piano, I also play the flute, clarinet, and piccolo. I have played
in orchestras and participated in concert and marching bands.

The SAT can be a daunting and stressful exam, but I am here to maximize your efficiency when studying! When I took the SAT, I created a self-study plan that eventually allowed me to attain a score of 2310 on the exam.

About Janis
Hi there! I'm Janis, a recent graduate from the University of Southern California. While at USC, I studied neuroscience, but beyond my science curriculum, I took many literature and music classes.
I love learning about all types of topics and people, and I want to bring this energy to my students. From a very young age, I have loved creating lesson plans for my younger siblings. This developed into more formal tutoring and mentoring roles through middle school, high school, and college.
I have experience teaching everything from beginner piano to young children, to science presentation skills to international teaching assistants.
Using passion, compassion, and a positive energy, I would love to help you achieve your learning goals! :)

Our 5 y.o. daughter just took her first lesson with Janis and she much enjoyed the lesson. Our daughter is excited to learn to play the piano and Janis made the lesson fun and enjoyable. Our daughter is off to an excellent start with Janis. Janis left homework for our daughter until she returns for the next lesson. We are very pleased with Janis. She is very pleasant and patient and our daughter much enjoys her company.

We moved recently to LA from London and Janis is a fantastic teacher. My two boys are very much enjoying their lessons now and even practice without me having to ask. She discovered how best to motivate each child and customized her approach. Janis is much better than the previous two teachers in London.

If you need to improve your scores on the Reading, Language, or Essay portion of the SAT, let me teach you my tried-and-true test-taking strategies! I can also teach you specific Language rules and vocabulary and reading strategies that will help you be able to answer more questions correctly.

About Sara
As a seasoned educator, I know that the recipe for successful one-on-one learning is simple. It has only two main ingredients: your (or your child's) desire to learn, and the expertise I bring from 16 years of experience as a classroom teacher and tutor. When you combine them over the course one or more hours of tutoring, the result is a more confident, skilled, and knowledgeable learner who has achieved or made measurable progress towards his or her goals. The positive, friendly and colleagial relationship you will have with your tutor (me) is just the sweet icing on the cake!

All around SAT prep!

About Jaime
Hey there! I'm a fully bilingual (English & Spanish) graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh. I received my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio and am now studying Rehabilitation Science and Technology. During my undergraduate career, I also took the necessary coursework to be considered a pre-med minor.

Additionally, I was also an all-around tutor for Sylvan Learning Center during the Summer of 2016. There, I taught children and teens of all ages on all of the subjects available. I also did a lot of ACT and SAT prep sessions.

My background as a Mexican-American, Mechanical Engineer, Pre-Med student. former Sylvan tutor and a current graduate student (which requires a lot of reading and writing) allows me to be a great instructor for subjects such as Spanish, Math, Science,
Language, and even ACT and SAT prep!

Jaime was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TEACHER! He had the ability to work with students who were Pre-K through college. He could relate to them in a way that that fostered mutual trust and provided a safety zone for students to work and grow as life-long learners. I completely and wholeheartedly believe that he has can teach any subject from beginning reading to WHATEVER!
