Before we begin our lessons, I ask the student to take a diagnostic test that I provide and discuss the results with the parents and/or student so that we can develop a plan that works the best for the student and his/her schedule.
During the lessons, I drill the students on these topics until I am fully convinced that the student has fully mastered the materials. As we progress through the course and as the student make progress in different areas, I adapt the curriculum so that the students can most benefit from the lessons.
I normally use the Princeton Review's Cracking the SAT with 6 Practice Tests, Kaplan's SAT Math Workbook, and McGraw Hill's SAT with 4 Practice Tests, and 7 practice tests from College Board. From these resources, I will optimize the tests students should take depending on their needs. However, if the parents or students prefer that I use other materials, I would love to look into it.
For the best results, I recommend 1.5-hour of lessons twice a week, for approximately 10 weeks. This will also depend on where the student is in terms of their preparation. If this schedule does not work for you though, I would love to discuss with you so that we can come up with schedule that works well for you.

“I would not have passed my test in such a short time without her. I hired her a week before my test. She was very professional and very smart, and she used different technique to help me remember.”
“My daughter is so happy about her A in math. Thank you for everything you are teaching her!”

I'm an MIT tutor specializing in math and test prep, and I have taught math (anywhere from prealgebra to calculus) for 5 years. I have gotten perfect scores on SAT Math, SAT Math 2, and ACT Math. I also have taken AP Calc BC, AP Chem, and AP Bio. I have been an active member of math team throughout secondary school, and my sister and I solve math problems for fun in our spare time. I am especially experienced with the gifted students.
I believe in deep learning. Deep learning helps students build strong foundations to succeed in future courses. To facilitate this type of learning, I show how the formulas are derived and drill the students on concepts until they fully master the materials.
