General Mathematics Tutor
Before we get started I would like to know a history of your grades and progression in the subject and also your hopes and predictions for the future. This is so I can tailor our time to suit you perfectly. In my sessions I will be happy to answer any questions you may have, be it from homework, a textbook or from your lessons at school. I always find past paper questions extremely helpful and so will definitely be going through papers with you too.
I am Folasona, a graduate of Mathematics from Howard University. I also hold an M.A. in Humanities from New York University. I have extensive experience and specialization in teaching test-prep for the SAT exam. I scored a perfect 1600 on the SAT.
I have helped countless students strive for their full potential on standardized university entrance exams including the SAT, SAT subject tests, and the ACT. I have helped both highly achieving and struggling students make significant improvements by mastering not only the material, but also the timing, format, and style of these exams. It brings me great joy to see my students gain both the confidence and competence to expand their future educational opportunities.
