Richard has developed lessons, tips and tricks exclusive to Your Score Booster.
When you get an SAT tutor or take an SAT class from Your Score Booster (YSB), you’re getting help from tutors and SAT class instructors personally chosen by the owner, Richard Dalton, who has been teaching the SAT since 2005 and has developed lessons, tips and tricks exclusive to Your Score Booster.
Richard received a dual bachelor’s degree in computer science and mathematics from the State University of New York and a master’s of journalism degree from the University of North Carolina. A long-time journalist, he has contributed to several news stories nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
Richard has taught journalism at The State University of New York, helping students improve their grammar and writing. After teaching university students for nearly a decade, Richard decided to pursue a different kind of teaching: Teaching SAT classes. He took a 51-hour SAT Princeton Review training course in New York to teach SAT classes.
Some test-prep companies excel in English but lag on math material. But Your Score Booster founder Richard Dalton’s degrees in mathematics and journalism and his specialized SAT training have led the company to excel at teaching the SAT math, critical reading and writing sections.
Richard has developed special SAT apps for the TI calculators. Students can use the apps on test day, helping students boost their scores on the math section.
Teaching students is a passion for Your Score Booster’s SAT tutors and SAT class instructors.
We enjoy teaching so much that the hours fly by, and the enthusiasm is contagious. In fact, two of our students — in the middle of SAT tutoring — decided they didn’t need to take the SAT for various reasons. In one case, a student received a scholarship to a school that didn’t require the SAT, and, in another case, a student decided to attend a Canadian college. But the students continued SAT preparation because they wanted to learn the material — and they actually enjoyed the sessions!
Students say that Your Score Booster SAT lessons make learning fun. But the lessons are more than just enjoyment. Students boost their SAT scores hundreds of points.
