About Steve Warner
Dr. Steve Warner is a mathematician and test prep expert who has been tutoring students in mathematics for standardized tests since 1999. During this time Dr. Warner has used the feedback from thousands of students to develop a unique system that can be used by anyone to drastically improve his or her math score in a very short period of time.
Dr. Warner's philosophy is quite different from most experts in that he focuses on testspecific strategy designed to save time, avoid carelessness, and exploit the weaknesses of standardized tests, as opposed to spending valuable time on the conventional teaching of mathematics. Furthermore, Dr. Warner realizes that students at different score levels must be taught differently and this is reflected very strongly in his materials.
Dr. Warner began tutoring his classmates while he was still in high school, and by the time he started college he had already tutored over 100 students in subjects ranging from algebra to AP calculus. He soon became known as the "math ninja" because of his incredible ability to help students get over a 90 on their tests with just one short tutoring session.
Throughout college Dr. Warner began tutoring more advanced topics such as linear algebra, differential equations and advanced calculus. His ability to get even the weakest math majors to understand deep theoretical concepts became well known throughout the campus. During this time he received several math scholarships and a 4.0 in mathematics, but it wasn't until graduate school that Dr. Warner had an experience which changed his philosophy on teaching forever....
When Dr. Warner began graduate school he actually found himself struggling with the material for the first time. He worked harder than he ever had in the past, but was not able to grasp the concepts as easily as he had as an undergraduate. Dr. Warner finally experienced the feelings that his clients went through. But an interesting thing happened soon after. All of a sudden nothing seemed difficult anymore and he was back at the top of his class. Despite the fact that he was taking even harder classes now, he was once again breezing through them with very little effort.
It was at this time that Dr. Warner had two realizations.
(1) Working harder and long hours does not necessarily lead to more success in mathematics.
(2) It is possible for anyone to increase their skill in mathematics to any level they choose.
You see, during that first year Dr. Warner experimented with many methods to get himself to learn material that was too difficult for him. And eventually he figured it out. It was this final step in his evolution that allowed him to become an even more effective tutor than ever before. What he learned during this process was incorporated into his already successful system of coaching for standardized tests to create a method that not only increased math scores, but simultaneously increased any students' mathematical skill level, whereby increasing their potential score.
Dr. Warner did complete graduate school, earning the TA teaching excellence award in the process, and becoming a successful Professor of Mathematics, first at Penn State and then at Hofstra University where he currently works. During his time at Hofstra he has taught a full range of undergraduate and graduate courses, published several articles in scholarly journals, and participated in a five year, eleven million dollar NSF grant, "The MSTP Project," to improve mathematics and science curriculum in poorly performing middle schools.
In 2012, Dr. Warner founded "GET 800" whose goal it is to provide inexpensive SAT math preparation for students who cannot afford to pay $500 per hour for one on one tutoring from a test prep expert. GET 800 offers SAT, ACT, and AP test prep products.
Dr. Warner works with students individually and in group settings, he tutors both live and by video conferencing, and he offers free materials in the form of his blog, his YouTube channel, and his Facebook page.

Blog postHello everyone.
Two weeks ago I posted a video teaching a very basic but important SAT math strategy – Starting With Choice (C).
Very often when plugging in answer choices, choice (C) is the best place to start. But there are some exceptions. Today’s video will talk about those exceptions. You can see the blog post that I have already written on these two subjects here: Starting With Choice (C) – A Basic SAT Math Strategy

Blog postHi everybody.
Today, let’s discuss an SAT math strategy I like to call Recognizing Blocks.
First, let me give my definition of a block: A block is an algebraic expression that appears more than once in a given problem.
Very often in SAT problems a block can be treated just like a variable. In particular, blocks should usually not be manipulated—treat them as a single unit.
This is simple in theory. Let’s try it with a Level 2 SAT math problem:6 years ago Read more

If you have been reading this blog, then you are probably familiar with what the SAT is. Just in case you are not, there is a link below in the main content to one of my articles that gives comprehensive information on this.
One thing that I have not yet talked about is the PSAT.
First, did you know that the “P” in PSAT stands for preliminary? Most people incorrectly think that it stands for practice.

Blog postHi all,
2 weeks ago, I wrote a post on divisibility tricks – i.e. how to quickly recognize if a number is divisible by another number without the use of a calculator. I have had a few questions regarding one of the statements I made concerning division involving zero. The answers to these questions are quite a bit more difficult than anything you will need for the SAT. So instead of adding this information to the previous post, I thought it would be better for me t6 years ago Read more
