I scored 1550 on the SAT after self-studying and learning the strategies of the test on my own. Because of this, I have a very detailed understanding of critical thinking skills required to do well on this important test. I am equipped to create a detailed study plan for those wishing to score in the 99th percentile, but I can also cater to those who want to simply increase their score.

About Shandra A.

Hi guys! My name is Shandra, I'm from West Texas, and I currently attend Yale University. I am so excited to tutor you guys! I am very friendly and outgoing and have a very flexible teaching style. I love building relationships with my students so that I can foster a comfortable and judgment-free learning environment. I am committed to helping my students reach their goals so that they can cultivate self-confidence in their educational endeavors.

I graduated high school in 2020 and was recently admitted to the Yale University Class of 2024. I was the valedictorian of my high school class of 510 students with a GPA of 102.408. I scored 1550 on my SAT and 34 on my ACT. I was a cheerleader all four years of high school and received many awards throughout my career. I was also recently awarded my International Baccalaureate diploma.

Although I do not have any formal teaching experience, I have been tutoring through various agencies since my freshman year of high school. I specialize in high school math up to AP Calculus AB, but I am well versed in high school English, AP Macroeconomics, and AP Microeconomics. I tutored for all four of these subjects through a club in my school called AP Ambassadors. I tutor for SAT math and have helped many of my peers improve their scores by at least 50 points. I was also a member of an organization called Peer Assisted Leadership (PALS) where I tutored children all over my school district, so I can also tutor elementary and middle school-aged children in all subjects.

Shandra is awesome! She helped me increase my ACT composite score 3 points in 3 weeks. And my reading score went from a 28 to a perfect 36! She is a really great tutor and I'm so grateful for her last minute help.

Shandra is an amazing tutor!! From the first lesson you feel very at ease with her personality and her teaching style. I really struggled with the math portion of the SAT and due to medical reasons I was out of school for a while, so Shandra had to essentially teach me a lot of things from scratch. She made sure I understood everything before moving on, and if I didn't understand it one way, she would go over it other ways until I got it. Shandra also gave me many helpful tips with the college application process. I would 100% recommend her as a tutor to anyone else!

Shandra is such a great tutor and mentor! The one thing I find very hard about tutoring is it sometimes feels uncomfortable or unnatural and Shandra has a way of making everyone feel comfortable and at ease, which is the best way to feel when you're learning new things. Shandra excels at everything she does and besides her obviously impressive background, she makes learning easy! I highly recommend!!
