Proud to provide by far the best one-on-one math tutoring for the SAT, ACT, and SAT subject tests. Teach the required material, drill practice exams, detailed decomposition of and solutions to problems, expose underlying themes, question categories, time management, and test taking strategies. I take a unique approach to teaching the math portions of these tests – I actually teaches the math! No tricks that try to replace learning and comprehension, no gimmicks with fancy names, no relying on memorizing formulas. High scores are earned through a combination of the best tailored instruction and diligent work by the student. My students consistently achieve superior scores and develop creative problem solving skills for success now and in the future. Remember, the goal is not just to get into your college of choice, but also to succeed there!

When choosing to take the SAT or ACT (or both), the most certain way to determine whether a student has a propensity for one test over the other is to take a separate practice test for each. I analyze the results of these practice tests with the student by going over problems while assessing abilities and capabilities. I discover strengths, weaknesses, and learn how each individual student learns best. It is usually straight forward to then determine which test is better suited for the student and how to proceed with teaching and obtaining high scores. Single tests that attempt to determine this propensity suffer from a lack of consideration for a wide variety of factors (chains, multi-tutor companies, and commodity tutoring brokers use single tests because it is easier for them, not better for the student). The math portions of the SAT and ACT are distinctly different and require very different preparation.

Solve this system of equations for x and y. No calculator. One relaxed minute should do.

\[\begin{array}{c} \color{blue} { \eqalign{ & \frac{1}{x} + \frac{1}{y} = 1 \cr & \frac{3}{x} \,\, – \, \frac{2}{y} = 8 \cr} } \end{array}\]

I think George is not merely a tutor – he is a real educator. He knows that what helps students perform well on tests is the same as what makes them good students. A solid academic foundation pays dividends throughout schooling and careers, and George never loses sight of that in his work.
