Learn from the Master of Math
Join specialized master tutor, Nazar Rabadi, for his review sessions in upper level math courses. Nazar will cover Mathematics SAT Level 1 and 2 subject tests, AP Statistics, and AB/BC AP Calculus.
Each review session will cover a different course that's broken down into specific topics.
Use the tools below to learn more about the breakdown of each review session and the topics that will be covered.
Session Schedule & FAQs
Each session is designed in terms of "forms." There are three forms (A,B,C), each having its own questions and curriculum. This will give students an opportunity to take a specific review session on a different date if they cannot make the first time it is offered.
FAQ's
1How will my child benefit from these math review courses?
For students in upper level math courses, it's wise to get extra help to reinforce the material learned in school. Students who take AP courses have the opportunity to receive college level credits. Securing college credits in high school will reduce the total number of required college credits.
2What time does each session begin?
Each review session will begin at 10am. The AP Calculus AB/BC and statistics sessions will end at approximately 2pm. The SAT Math Subject Test sessions will end at approximately 1pm.
3What if my child cannot make one of the review sessions?
That is okay! We offer multiple review sessions in case a student cannot make one. Each session is designed in terms of "forms." There are three forms (A,B,C), each having their own questions and curriculum. This will give students the opportunity to take a specific review session on a different date if they cannot make the first time it is offered.
4How much are the review sessions?
- AP Calculus AB/BC: $150 per student
- AP Statistics AB/BC: $150 per student
- SAT Subject Level 1 & 2: $200 per student

Taking the topics covered over the session and bringing them all together
SAT Math Subject Test Levels 1 & 2
Who should take SAT Math Subject tests?
Students who have completed algebra, geometry, and algebra II trigonometry courses in school.
What topics are covered for the Level 1 Math Subject Test.
The session will cover the following:
- Number and operations
- Operations, ratio and proportion, complex numbers, counting, elementary number theory, matrices, sequences
- Algebra and functions
- Expressions, equations, inequalities, representation and modeling, properties of functions (linear, polynomial, rational, exponential)
- Geometry and measurement
- Plane Euclidean
- Coordinate lines, parabolas, circles, symmetry, transformations
- Three-dimensional solids, surface area and volume (cylinders, cones, pyramids, spheres, prisms)
- Trigonometry Right triangles, identities
- Data analysis, statistics and probability
- Mean, median, mode, range, interquartile range, graphs and plots, least squares regression (linear), probability
What topics are covered for the Level 2 Math Subject Test
The session will cover the following:
- Numbers and operations: graphical and other properties of complex numbers and series and vectors.
- Algebra and functions: advanced algebraic functions and equations including exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric.
- Geometry and measurements: applying concepts learned in plane geometry to coordinate and three-dimensional geometry. The Level 2 exam also includes questions about ellipses, hyperbolas, polar coordinates and coordinates in three dimensions. The trigonometry questions on Level 2 place more emphasis on the properties and graphs of trigonometric functions, the inverse trigonometric functions, trigonometric equations and identities, and the laws of sines and cosines.
- Data analysis, statistics and probability: mean, median, mode, range, interquartile range, data interpretation and probability as the Level 1 Math exam does. The Level 2 also covers standard deviation, least-squares linear regressions, and quadratic and exponential regression.
How long are the review sessions for the SAT Math Subject Tests?
The review sessions will be three hours long, thoroughly covering all the material mentioned above.
