My name is Mena. I have a strong background in math with a degree in Actuarial science and have been tutoring the SAT Math, ACT Math, 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.

About Mena H.

hello, my name is Mena, I'm a high school math teacher, and I have been tutoring Common Core Math, Algebra I & II, Geometry, SAT, ACT, and Grade school math since 2012; there is nothing I enjoy more than watching my students succeed.

I create a relaxed environment for my students in order to make the work stress free and enjoyable. My goal is to make the coursework fun for the student by finding an approach to learning that works best based on their unique characteristics. Being able to empathize with students in order to understand where their challenges lie and patient in helping them overcome those hurdles is where I excel. By exploring different approaches to difficult concepts I break them into manageable pieces that fit with each students prior experience which make learning approachable rather than overwhelming. Behind every concept we have yet to master there is a myth in our mind about what it entails. Demystifying through creativity and humor allows my students to overcome a combination of fear, frustration and/or complacency that we all experience at some point while learning.

I have tutored dozens of students in the SAT and ACT and have helped them all increase their scores with most increasing their SAT score at least 100 points and some by over 400 points and on the ACT most by over 8 points and some by over 15 points. These are very difficult tests designed to be difficult to improve on. All of my students who gave themselves plenty of time to prepare and followed through on their promise to work on their own have seen significant score improvements.I have also worked with numerous students on developing study skills; helping them find the fun in school as well as helping with their organization skills and approach to homework.

We like Mena’s Style of teaching. He has a way to get my 16-yr-old son to study and do extra math work daily. He goes through the lessons to prep my son for the school work and also get him to do the SAT prep. He has a lot of knowledge and tricks on the SAT that are very helpful. We do a weekly class with Mena is the past 6 months and will continue through high school.

Mena was wonderful! He really pushed my brother to work hard. He provided really helpful and informative packets that my brother is continuing to use. Thanks to Mena, my brother feels a lot more confident in Math and has a lot of great tools, strategies and resources.

Mena was hired to evaluate and develop academic needs in math for my son, David . He is punctual and ready to start objectives immediately. He guided my son in current lesson plans and then helped to develop skills needed for future chapters. He showed a desire to teach and develop tools to help him achieve high scores and to learn concepts or rationals for the importance of each equation. I highly recommend Mena for his ability to tutor and I wish him success in his future goals.

Excellent!
Mena did a great job. My son took an SAT test before and after Patrick's tutoring and showed a noticeable improvement, using several specific tips and insights Mena taught him.
