I'm Bruce.

I graduated from Wharton with my MBA, and from Grinnell College with my teaching certificate. I scored in the 95th percentile on both the GMAT and the SAT.

I'm guessing you're probably a bit stressed about taking your SAT or GMAT. I know. I've been there. But you you don't need to be. I'm an expert at raising scores. In fact, I commonly raise SAT scores over 150 points and GMAT scores over 100 points.

I combined my test taking skills with my training as a teacher and developed a system that dramatically improves scores. It's not magic, but it's really, really effective. I create a highly personalized curriculum based on an evaluation of your skills and goals. Then I generate sets of practice problems that are carefully crafted to systematically build skill and confidence in the areas in which YOU need the most help.

That's all there is to it. The approach works because it combines a rigorous, customized approach to the test with an experienced tutor who simply loves teaching. Those two things together produce great results.

HERE ARE SOME COMMENTS FROM PAST STUDENTS:

Bruce is fantastic. He teaches concepts really clearly and also builds your confidence at the same time. My GMAT went from 570 to 670. Christine S.

Bruce is the best tutor I’ve ever had. He made learning interesting and motivating. I improved my SAT by 150 points! Matt D.

Bruce was a life saver! My daughter has been struggling with test taking for years. Her results on her SATs were clearly not a good indicator of her academic abilities. Last winter she had participated in a 6 week long course given by another well known company. The results? Her scores actually went down. My daughter worked with Bruce for 4 weeks this fall...re-took the test, and scored considerably higher in almost every category even though the focus with Bruce had been on reading comp only. Bruce is an intelligent, patient, punctual, knowledgeable, and caring tutor that I would highly recommend to all! Lisa W.

My GMAT went from 610 to 700. Now I can apply to Wharton, Stanford and The London School of Economics. Muhammad, T.

Five sessions with Bruce did what an entire GMAT course couldn’t – raise my score from 670 to 720. I am now able to get into UCLA! Michael H.

Bruce is the best tutor I’ve ever had. Bruce was able to identify my weaknesses and gave me strategies that worked. During our interaction, Bruce gave me methodologies to not only deal with the subject matter, but he also had better insight into how standardized tests worked and what I needed to do to improve my scores. I recommend Bruce wholeheartedly as a great tutor and advisor. Justin K.

I can’t recommend Bruce enough. I always had really good grades but for some reason I just couldn’t score well on the SAT. My test scores were keeping me from applying to the schools I really wanted to go to. After a few sessions with Bruce I could feel myself get better really fast. He is a great teacher and taught me math and grammar in a way I got easily. Beyond that, he's patient and supportive and motivated me and made me believe I could do well. I improved over 200 points. Jamie M.
