IMPROVING YOUR CHANCES FOR COLLEGE OR GRADUATE SCHOOL
I know what it means to do well on these tests and launch yourself into your new career. It means a new future and having your dreams come true! Whatever the issue is, I can show you how to improve your performance on these high-stakes test which are so crucial to your future. Many people have taken these tests repeatedly and still not achieved their goals. I can help. If you are motivated, you do not need to waste any more time, money, and worry; in a short time I can give you the tools you need to do well.
Many students already have the knowledge and capacity to do well on the tests they attempt, but fear paralyzes them and they feel they "just can't think" when faced with the real testing situation. Let me help you in a brief time to overcome this once and for all and be able to do your best on tests!
What does it mean to "decode"? This is jargon for the ability to know what sound each letter or combination of letters will make, in order to say a word in your head and then READ it out loud! Sounds simple, but many students have not been taught the BASICS of phonics and do not know how to begin to read a word or a phrase. I can show you simple rules that will always work for you and you can be a happy, successful reader!
How do you know I can help you?
I have a long history of writing successfully and powerfully. I have written numerous federal grants for millions of dollars. I have written academic papers in two Master's programs and one PhD program, some for publication. I have many happy, satisfied students who have come from "C" and "D" levels to "A" and "B" levels, and students who failed a professional exam 2-5 times and then were able to obtain the help they needed and passed with flying colors!
How do I work with students?
I do a diagnostic interview to discover your capabilities at this time and your goals for the tutoring sessions. I will give you a brief "pre-test" so we will have something to use to measure your progress. Then we start the work, which will not seem so much like work as a pleasant journey to the place you want to go! I like for you to set the pace, but I will work as quickly as you can progress. I can do a lot even in one session, and if you need a series, I offer discounts through WyzAnt.
I charge $65 per hour for most subjects, and $90 per hour for MCAT preparation.

Good luck in all your goals.
