1st class Mathematics graduate with extensive experience and knowledge.
I plan to tailor my sessions to each individual, largely basing it on the specification for their course and the way in which they work best. I find that summarizing concepts into diagrams and simpler terms can help to understand them, however, I am always open to listening to what the student feels is best for them. I will also be available to help with current schoolwork for the given subject, as well as setting goals for the student based on what they're aiming to learn.
Levels Taught: Upper Secondary, Under Graduate, Professional Exams
Teaches students: Ages 14-18, SAT
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.
