Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT Math tutors
" On campus, my research focuses on nanomaterials and nanodevices, and it has taken me to Bremen, Germany and Beijing, China. I tutor in middle and high school level math and science classes, focusing on understanding fundamental concepts through real world examples and building on that foundation. I also tutor in German, which I studied for 4 years before spending 6 months in northern Germany. In my free time, I love participating in outdoor sports including cycling, hiking, rock climbing, and flag football. I also spend a lot of time cooking, doing graphic design/photography, and dancing (country/western, swing, and waltz).." ...

"While at my university I also worked with adult students pursuing a GED. Ultimately, mathematics is not about memorizing formulas but about the logical process of arriving at a conclusion. Ideally, my job will consist of reminding the student of the tools at their disposal and they will make the leap themselves towards their desired answer. This ability to think about problems is not limited to mathematics and, if mastered, will stay with the student for the rest of their lives. Aside from mathematics I enjoy playing my piano. I especially love playing music from movie, TV show and video game soundtracks.." ...

" I was also involved in Boy Scouts. I attained the rank of Eagle Scout, and along the way I taught hordes of antsy boys the basics of camping. I am also the oldest of four children in my family, so I have been helping out with homework for as long as I can remember. As a tutor for Varsity, I have helped my clients achieve remarkable results, the most notable being one high school student who raised his ACT score from a 26 to a 31, high enough to qualify for Missouri's Bright Flight scholarship program."

"I love asking “why” questions and pushing students to understand their academic purpose as well as the right answer! I have studied and done biological research in the field (as well as in the lab) in three different countries, so it's no surprise that I love traveling, living in new places, and learning about new cultures. I have always kept up a strong work ethic to help me succeed in school, even while I was studying abroad in Germany and Peru, and this is also something I try to promote in my students. I try to lead by example and am very dedicated to forming a positive teacher-student relationship. I have tutored and taught elementary ...

" Through high school and college, even while completing two unrelated bachelor's degree programs, I began tutoring my own classmates, younger students, and even adult neighbors using a similar delivery style as my own teachers, albeit tailored to each student's individual struggles. My clients all showed a drastic improvement in their respective classroom performances. In graduate school, I had the opportunity to teach a semester of College Algebra, again peppering my lectures with idiosyncratic memory triggers. My students all left the class with well-earned grades showing their increased understanding of mathematics." ...

" In short, I believe in the modern-day revival of the Renaissance man. When it comes to teaching and tutoring, I love that light bulb moment we get when something finally starts to make sense. I'm addicted to it. I love getting that feeling when I learn something new and I love spreading that feeling to others. I am encouraging and patient with my students and have a knack for making seemingly senseless problems feel relevant and practical. Most importantly, I believe in actually teaching students how to approach and solve problems as opposed to simply doing it for them." ...

"I am enthusiastic and creative, and am constantly scanning the latest pedagogical literature to keep abreast of current teaching theories. My strengths lie in verbal expression, although I have a background in science (especially biology) as well. My specialty is helping to improve language/reading scores and writing/editing skills, as my perfect scores in the verbal portions of the SAT and the GRE demonstrate. I have lived/studied in France for a year, and am extremely proficient in the language."

" My tutoring style is influenced by my background in philosophy. When I teach a math problem, I try to make sure my students understand not only how to solve the problem, but also how to explain the principles and the logic behind the solution. That way they can safely and confidently approach novel problems on their own. Finally, I believe it is important to make learning as fun and as interactive as possible."
