SAT math tutoring (Portland)

Are you, or is your son or daughter, scheduled to take the SAT in the next couple months, and nervous about the quantitative section? Are you applying to college or grad school, needing help with and nervous about the math or verbal sections on the GRE, or GMAT?

I took the SAT several times in high school, and also scored in the 700s on the quantitative section. Since then, I've taken the GRE, with a highly similar math section, and scored 770 out of 800. I regularly tutor students for the SAT math sections. And I've tutored numerous students over the past several years for the GMAT and GRE math sections (highly similar to the SAT quant sections). And I've taught a course on the new GRE math section. As someone with a graduate degree in psychology, I can also help with test anxiety.

I'm also a very supportive tutor. One of the number one qualities my students would list about me is that I am kind, patient, and supportive.

Finally, I'm more affordable than the big test prep companies. I've worked for them in the past. They typically hire tutors like me who already tutor and double the rate! I charge $40/hour.


Some comments from former students:


...I got tutoring for the math section of the May SAT [from you] and we recently got our scores back. On this section in particular, I got a 670, mostly due to the math help you gave me! I'm just writing to say thank you for your help; it was very effective, especially getting familiarized with higher-level math concepts. Thanks again!!!!<

Just wanted to let you know that I got accepted into the PhD program and will be starting in the fall! You made the GRE super accessible and approachable. Thanks for all of your help! I don't know what I would have done without you!

...I took the test today. It was so long and really hard...I got a 150 on the quantitative (162 on the verbal). 150 was my goal... Both of the programs that I am looking at require a minimum quantitative score of 145 - so I did it! Whew. I am so glad that is over. Thank you so much for your help. You are a great tutor. I feel lucky to have found you.

...Got a 670 on the math section! Thanks for everything!!!!!!!!!!

...Just wanted to let you know I took the GRE's and got my scores today: 1300 total with 670 in Math, 630 in verbal. (91st percentile!) I was really pleased. Thanks for all your help!
