How It Works

INSTANT ACCESS ON DESKTOP AND MOBILE

You do not need to spend hours on end working on this material. In fact it is more effective to spend frequent short periods of time. For this reason, your lessons are available in both Desktop and mobile versions. Do you have a few minutes before your practice or class begins? Check out a lesson.

PRINTABLE NOTES AND EXAMPLES

Each lesson starts with detailed notes covering concepts to be addressed and several examples of each process being covered. These notes are printable so that students can create their own book. Students are encouraged to use these pages to highlight topics for review as well as key concepts.

VIDEOS OF PROBLEMS BEING SOLVED

Sometimes the whole process can be overwhelming and you need to see things one step at a time. My videos provide step by step solutions to problems with  explanations for each step taken. Many students learn best when listening as well as seeing. This portion of the course provides both.

QUIZZES AT THE END OF EACH LESSON

Each lesson ends with a multiple choice quiz of the material presented. This provides students with immediate feedback regarding their mastery of the concepts. Students must score 80% or higher before being able to access the next lesson. This insures that a strong foundation is being built.

ACCESS TO WEBINARS AND Q&A SESSIONS

Sometimes you just need to talk to somebody and ask a question. In that case, I offer webinars and Q&A sessions for an additional cost so that I can answer your questions “face to face".

About the SAT/ACT Prep Course

Many students, who are successful in school, find the SAT or the ACT challenging. The tests are constructed quite differently from the tests students are given in their classroom. Students need both mastery of the material being tested and strategies for the presentation of the material. This course provides both.

Math concepts and Grammar rules are reviewed. The structure of both tests as well as how to use that structure to raise your score is covered for each section. Example questions are reviewed and explanations for both right and wrong answer choices are covered. One of the most important things to remember is that you have to PRACTICE these skills. Working 4 to 5 days a week for short periods of time (20 - 30 minutes) will have DRAMATICALLY better results than a marathon session once a week.

That is one of the advantages to this online program. You get guided practice at your fingertips. No need to drive to a tutor or have one come to you and spend hours at at time. You can also focus on the skills that are most challenging for you. Remember, the questions you miss are your opportunity to improve. Review them! Practice them until you can answer them correctly at least 3 times.

Of course you will need to let some time elapse between attempts. Otherwise, you are just memorizing the correct answer and not learning the skill. Search out other similar questions. There is no advantage to repeated practicing skills you have already mastered. Focus on the questions that are challenging for you!

How We're Different

I was a teacher for over 25 years. One of the hardest things for me as a classroom teacher was to realize that I had one or a few students that weren’t ready to move on to the next skill. Maybe they were missing a pre-requisite skill or maybe they just needed a bit more practice. But, as a classroom teacher, I had to move on. There was a whole list of topics to be presented that school year whether the students truly mastered them or not. We had to KEEP GOING!

With this program you can spend as much time reviewing a skill as you need. You teacher may keep going but you can use this tool to look back and practice until you master a skill.

Math is an upside down pyramid. You start with a few simple skills, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Each year the number of skills grows and grows. Why does that matter? if you have a gap in your knowledge from a prior year, it impacts your success more and more as you move on. For example, the first skill that give students trouble is often fractions.

Building a strong foundation is invaluable in the mathematics. I believe it is those gaps in their foundations that causes so many students to think that they are “bad” at math or are “just not math people.” With the explosion of STEM careers, math literacy is a huge part of the future. By allowing students the ability to review topics as needed, this program provides a way to strengthen a student’s foundation and help them gain the confidence they need to become “math people.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Access to printable notes for each topic. Videos of problems being solved with step by step explanations. Quizzes to determine your mastery of each topic BEFORE you move on. If you need to review a previous lesson, you can always go back and access all of the material. You also have the option of attending a webinar (for an additional charge). These will be scheduled at least twice a week. Attendance is limited to 5 students and questions must be submitted 48 hours in advance.  For more information about our webinar options, click here.

Math takes time and consistent effort. There is no lasting quick fix. If you have concerns as to whether this program is for you, start with the monthly option. There is no minimum number of months to purchase. That being said, please plan on working consistently 4 to 5 times a week for at least 15 to 20 minutes. That is only an hour to an hour and a half each week. The results will be worthwhile and lasting.

I have developed comprehensive content for each of the courses. The number of lessons is different as the topics are different. Check the content listing for each course for a complete list of material covered.

I over 25 years of teaching there have been less than 10 students who genuinely put in the effort and did not see results in a reasonable period of time. If you find that you are not making progress as you had hoped, you may want to join a webinar to ask your specific questions or make sure you have the prerequisite skills necessary for the topics you are studying. If you truly feel this product is not right for you, please see my cancellation policy.

I am not able to meet in person. The joy of internet learning is that it allows teachers and students from anywhere in the world to work together. We may be 1000’s of miles apart but still be able to communicate. I do offer live webinars for members of my courses. Once you sign up for these (which will become available at checkout), you will receive an email of available times to choose from. If you'd like to see a sample schedule, please email us.

Anything worthwhile takes work. You may wish that I could sprinkle magic pixy dust or use my Harry Potter wand and make your math problems disappear but that isn’t how this works. I am not suggesting that you will need to spend hours and hours each day to learn the material in this course. In fact, I often hear from my students that my explanations are clear, concise and help them understand the concepts more quickly and more fully.

I wasn’t always a math person. I had to work at it. One day I was particularly frustrated and I went to see one of my college professors. He told me that math was his favorite subject because if he just worked at it hard enough for long enough he made saw results. Here he was teaching my class and admitting that he had to work at learning sometimes. I am a big believer in effort over outcome. If you put the effort in, you will achieve the outcome you desire.

I ask you to work consistently (completing lessons 4 times a week) for a period of at least 2 months. If at that point you do not see improvement (your grade in school has not improved) I will refund 75% of your purchase price.

Monthly memberships can be cancelled at any time. If you are concerned that this may not be a good fit for you, you might want to start with a monthly plan. I am confident that if you follow the program consistently, you WILL see improvement and your grades and confidence will increase more and more each day.
