Fun, excited, enthusiastic gap year student passionate about helping students do their best on the SAT. Scored a 2340 on the old SAT and received PSAT commendation for the new PSAT.

Methodology

My teaching method is designed to walk students through exactly what it takes to ace the SAT. I firmly believe that everyone learns differently and am enthusiastic about helping students not just memorize information or vocabulary, but actually learn thoroughly and completely. I begin with a practice test and move into practice problems and testing techniques based with regular homework exercises to keep every student's mind sharp and active.

Background

I am a gap year student and have 3+ years of experience as a peer to peer tutor. Two of my tutees have been recognized by the school for outstanding improvement. I expect to receive a degree from UC Berkeley, Harvey Mudd College, UCLA or UC Irvine as part of the class of 2022.
