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.

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.

I teach test prep, sat prep. For the levels: elementary school, junior high / middle school, secondary school, , , college, university, adult education,
I give lessons in person at the student's home.
I give lessons by webcam.
I am logged in these last 2 weeks.

Joseph's Experience

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.
