Mathematics skills for the SAT and ACT will be taught by Stu Radin, a well-respected local educator, who has many years of experience preparing students for the SAT, ACT, SAT-Subject Test, AP Exam, SSAT and PSAT assessments. Optimizing a student’s ability on the SAT and ACT requires a combination of content knowledge and test taking strategies. Stu is uniquely qualified to provide instruction encompassing both areas. He has worked with Westminster students for the past nine years.
In order to focus on the needs of each student, preparation will be provided via one-on-one instruction. Individual tutoring offers a more “surgical” approach, which can better identify each student’s unique areas of need and focus on those topics and skills which the student needs to improve. Sessions, which are normally one hour in length, are scheduled during free blocks, after school, during study hall and on weekends, at the convenience of each student. Due to coronavirus concerns, all instruction will be conducted remotely, until further notice.
Stu has earned certification as a professional educator for mathematics, grades seven through 12, in the State of Connecticut. He is also “BEST” (Beginning Educator Support and Training) certified and has been determined to be “highly qualified” by the State of Connecticut. Stu’s formal education background consists of a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, a Master of Business Administration and a Connecticut teacher’s certificate for grades seven through 12. Stu is also a professional engineer. He has been teaching and tutoring since 2005, making a career change after a 20-year career in engineering and the construction industry.
