Math Competition Coaching

Make the AMC and AIME your admissions edge.

Why do I need an edge?

Once students have good grades and high SAT/ACT scores, they should shift their focus to activities that set them apart from their high-performing peers.

Math competitions train students to be flexible and creative thinkers, whereas the SAT and ACT train students to be good test-takers. Top college admissions officers know the difference.

What are these math competitions?
They are collections of carefully-crafted puzzles that accurately gauge both intellectual creativity and grit in even the brightest of students, distinguishing students in the 97th percentile from students in the 99th percentile and higher.
The main competition (the AMC) is given twice in February of each year.
The invitational exam (the AIME) is then given twice in March to those who qualify.
For a gentle introduction to this sort of puzzle, check out my podcast.
How do competitions affect college admission?
They are solicited and recognized by the most selective schools as a primary way to accurately rank students in the top percentiles.  (They are particularly helpful for girls, who are grossly underrepresented in this arena.)
