Description

Class Experience

By the end of this course, your learner will be able to say, "I have mastered 1/5 of the math concepts I expect to see on the SAT".
I've been certified in the public schools for teaching math in middle and high schools. I received additional certified training for gifted and talented learners. I taught math for sixteen years and I've been a personal SAT tutor for seven years. My students have typically raised their scores between 100 and 300 points.  As a chemical engineer and project management professional in the world of business consulting and information technology consulting, I've completed over five levels of college calculus and applied mathematics and used these math and computing skills throughout my career.  

The students I have taught had varying learning abilities that ranged from one with pronounced learning disabilities to gifted and talented. When it came to PSAT's and SAT's, each of them with impressive improvements in their scores. 

It can be done! Just watch how your learner improves!
A few problems for each session will be assigned. Students are expected to bring their solutions to class.
Paper, pencil, and a brain ready for thinking fun - A TI-84 or higher level calculator is also needed.  Students also may want to invest in a drawing pad. If they would rather not that is fine as I can write on the screen while the kids dictate their steps for solving problems.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
A benchmark brief assessment is given upon the first meeting.  A similar one is given on the last meeting.  Parents are provided a brief report of the improvement and how the possible improvement they might see on SAT scores as a result.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students should be at least middle school level.  Students who have not had geometry or Algebra II might struggle more with those concepts. Parents should be aware that these students will still benefit greatly with these lessons but the amount of time spent on these topics can't possible replace a full blown course. The concepts will be taught simply for the purpose of being able to tackle the questions appropriately on the SAT but not to the point of understand Algebra II and Geometry in detail.
No outside sources are needed.
