Hello. I am Martin McSweeney and I provide test preparation (SAT and ACT). Also, I provide math tutoring from basic math through calculus 2. Many of my students have graduated from Ivy League and other top colleges. One has even achieved a perfect composite score of 1600 on the SAT. In addition, multiple students have scored a perfect 800 on the SAT Math and a perfect 800 on the SAT Math 2 Subject Test. As a National Merit Finalist myself, I do know how to score well on the entire SAT.
You can click here for some recent students’ accomplishments with some accompanying pictures. Should you need further proof, you can request PDF of students’ acceptance letters to MIT, Yale, etc.
Who Is A Typical Student?
Despite the achievements of some students, the majority of my students come to me in crisis. Often, they want only to achieve a passing grade or to earn a B rather than a C. If that is the case with you, feel comfortable knowing you are in the majority. Most of my students come to me in a pained relationship with math. Many times their joy of math was lost when variables start working their way into pre-algebra. Or when they became lost themselves and had nowhere to turn. I understand.
It’s unfortunate that many math teachers subscribe to a one-size-fits all approach. Or, that when you ask questions, you might feel ashamed. Or even attacked. Sometimes math teachers are difficult to approach. My goal is to be approachable and user-friendly. Feel free to ask any and all questions during your sessions with me.
While I typically work with high school students, I have also successfully tutored home-school students from middle school to high school. College students and returning students of all abilities are equally welcome. Basically, the age range I work with is 12-65.
What You Really Want To Know
You likely want either SAT Preparation, ACT Preparation, or math tutoring. All in-person sessions take place in a suite within the US Bank Building in Huntington Beach, California.
If you are interested in online test preparation, you can choose from online ACT Preparation or online SAT Preparation. All math tutoring covers subjects from basic math through calculus 2, otherwise known as AP Calculus BC. Please note that all my calendar times are Pacific Standard Time (PST).
