Being a teenager is hard work these days. High school students are often overwhelmed by classes and extracurriculars and crunched for time. Getting the grades and test scores that will catapult them to college (and the world beyond) is a major stress point. That's where I come in!
My own great SAT
scores took me to UC Berkeley, where I graduated with honors. I spent seven years working for premiere test prep companies, so I am well-trained in SAT/ACT
techniques and have coached dozens of students to big score increases. I am especially effective working with students with test anxiety, a very common problem in taking college entrance exams.
I also tutor a wide range of academic subjects, breaking down concepts into bite-sized pieces and honoring the pace at which the student needs to work. Many students say I helped them finally grasp subjects they never understood in school, from coordinate geometry
to pronoun use. I truly enjoy working with teenagers, so they tend to enjoy working with me, too. I meet with most of my students at my quiet home office in Oakland, which makes an ideal work environment.
I develop real rapport with students, helping them identify their goals and find internal motivation. Preparing for a standardized test can be a drag. But working from the student's own motivators makes the process painless! I don't just tutor kids to better grades and scores. I mentor them so they can reach their potential beyond the test.
