In high school, students focus on higher math—including algebra I, geometry, algebra II, trigonometry, and pre-calculus—in preparation for high school exit exams, college placement exams, and standardized college entrance exams such as the SAT and the ACT.
By the time they reach high school, all students perform at different skill levels. To determine each student’s abilities, I give each one a written and verbal assessment. Based on the assessment results, I build a customized learning plan designed to fit the student’s specific needs in two important ways—to avoid spending time on things they already know and to strengthen the things they need help on.
I understand the pressures and busy schedules our high school students face, so my focus is to help with immediate problems, such as homework help and test prep, while filling in any foundational gaps in their mathematical knowledge. The goal is to enhance their performance in the crucial exams they’ll be taking that can have a great effect on their future—high school exit exams, college placement exams, and standardized college entrance exams such as the SAT and the ACT.
I provide homework and study help that addresses gaps in knowledge. As these gaps close, students understand the material better, boost homework confidence, and raise their assignment grades. With this help, instead of seeing homework as a burden, students begin to see it as a welcome challenge and an opportunity for further learning.
Students who prepare for standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, high school exit exams, and college placement exams enjoy a substantial advantage over those who don’t.
I provide each student with a test prep curriculum customized to their specific needs. To assess their math skills, each student is given a math skills assessment. Based on the strengths and weaknesses identified in this assessment, I develop a personal instruction plan for the student. Working with that—and giving them practical practice in test taking—I optimize their performance. The result: enhanced results on the actual exams and a more positive step into their future.
