I provide math and SAT tutoring. I am an experienced tutor with strong individual teaching skills. I tutor all math through calculus BC, statistics, and pre-calculus. I have a John Hopkins' math degree and current 2350 combined SATs. I often help students improve from D or F to A.

This was a problem with a client who ended a first lesson early and was rude and disrespectful, and has chosen to write a review. Mr. J indicates that he hired me for my excellent references. I have multiple references indicating I helped students get A's in honors high school math and helped them get 780-800 on their math SAT Is. Most students I work with who are in danger of failing improve to A's or B's. I was hired to tutor this student for the Math Level 2 SAT 2. Over the phone, the father told me she was an honors student and had been valedictorian or her middle school. Her questions were very basic and she was not initially understanding some of my explanations. After 30 minutes, she got up and talked to her father. The father came back and told me that she was an advanced student and needed advanced explanations. I replied that everyone I tutored for the math SAT 2 was an advanced student. However, if she didn't understand the initial explanation, I would give her simpler not more advanced explanations. Mr. J ended what had been scheduled as a 2 hour lesson after 30 minutes and paid me for 1 hour. I was taken aback, as I pride myself in the quality of my work and had never had anyone end a lesson early and express dissatisfaction. I am a Johns Hopkins graduate with good manners, never make racial slurs or curse, and I am offended by the false accusations.
