I'm a certified teacher with LAUSD in English. I've taught test prep for over 5 years and have lengthy experiences with the SAT, ACT, and LSAT. My students routinely improve 300 points on the SAT, 5 points on the ACT from the PSAT or first administration of the ACT.

I believe in teaching all the necessary academic content for the test, but not more. That is, know what's on the tests, but don't teach what's not on the test. I also believe the students should take advantage of the available, useful test taking methods that are applicable to the SAT, etc.

I'm available to teach in person or online.
