I specialize in SAT preparation
. Even though I have the qualifications to tutor many different subjects, I have chosen to focus exclusively on this particular test in an effort to provide you with the most sharply-focused, efficient, and effective private instruction available.
Getting a high score on the SAT
requires more than just being good at algebra
, critical reasoning, writing
, and grammar
. You also need strategies for taking the exam that will help earn you the most points possible. My goal is to give you personalized lessons that will increase your knowledge in the three basic subject areas of the test, help you identify and deal with trap questions, and provide you with specific approaches to each type of test question.
During my 20 years of experience as a college professor, I have taught students with various backgrounds, learning styles, and abilities. I have spent countless hours working one-on-one with these students helping them overcome obstacles to their success. I am eager to put this experience to work for you by helping you develop a goal-oriented plan for taking the SAT that plays to your personal strengths.
As a tutor, I believe it is important for me to keep my own SAT scores recent for a couple of different reasons. First, taking the test myself helps to keep me abreast of any changes to its format, scoring, and/or administration. Second, going through the experience of sitting for the exam helps me to stay in tune with the kinds of practical issues that you will face on exam day. I most recently took the SAT in November of 2013; I scored in the 99th percentile overall.
My rates are very competitive among the top tutors in my area. Also, my tutoring is 100% satisfaction guaranteed. If you are not happy with the personalized instruction I offer you, you will not be billed for the session.
You will find me friendly, patient, enthusiastic, and reliable. Contact me today, and let’s get to work!
