I taught high school English at Brien McMahon H.S. in Norwalk for over thirty-three years and have a BA and MA in English. I also have twenty-eight years’ experience in SAT prep as the owner of my own SAT tutoring company that held classes throughout Fairfield County. I have taken and studied the verbal and writing sections of over 70 different SATs and PSATs. The parents of over 6,000 juniors and seniors enrolled their sons/daughters in my program.
In addition to test-taking strategies for the verbal sections, I can also share strategies for math so that students can optimize their math SAT scores simply by knowing about the scoring system, pacing, and where the easy-middle difficulty-hard-hardest questions are.
My tutoring style is casual but serious. If I ask a student to complete two or three 25 min. sections between sessions, I will expect that all or most of the work will have been done; otherwise, we are wasting each other’s time.
