...I have tutored and home-schooled (Laurel Springs and University of Oklahoma programs) in Algebra 2 since 1998. I received a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from MIT. I come from 2 generations of chemists, so passing on the knowledge is something which comes naturally and brings me great pleasure.

...Included among these topics are conic sections, polar coordinates, vectors, matrices, and probability theory. I also enjoy connecting with the student to explore the concept of the limit and how it relates to the slope of a secant line. We have fun with topics including the unit circle, SOHCAHTOA, the Law of Sines, and the Law of Cosines.

...I can tell you from personal experience - the LSAT is beatable. It's a matter of understanding the sections, learning how to think about the questions and avoid common traps, and learning some of the shortcuts that will allow you to manage your time effectively. My biggest strength as a teacher is quickly assessing and understanding my students' thought processes.

...The PSAT/SAT is a test not just of specific math topics, but an overall knowledge of math expected from High School students. Practicing word problems in addition to "normal" math problems is usually needed to see improved scores. Better testing strategies can help improve scores as well.
