I am a University of Maryland graduate with four years of experience helping students achieve admission to the top-tier university of their choice. I teach much more than the fundamentals of reading, writing and math, I include my own innovative test-taking techniques that dramatically help increase scores. I break down the SAT, helping build your student's confidence through effective practice of problem sets custom-tailored for your student. My program features three full length SAT tests to ensure your student is completely prepared for test day, and I analyze their answers to diagnose and track areas of strength and weakness.

I have regularly received perfect scores on the SAT since high school, and I want to help your student achieve the same level of excellence in their search for the best higher education. The college application process is a lengthy and strenuous one that I can help ease by ensuring your student performs to the best of their ability on the single most important test of their life. As a recent graduate who spent countless hours preparing for tests, I can easily relate to students and the stress they are under with test preparation. I believe developing a rapport is crucial to an effective student-teacher relationship and I have always been able to make my students passionate, active participants in the test-prep process.

My track record is solid enough that I can guarantee a 150 point increase. Let me help your student achieve admission to the school of their dreams!

SAT Reading

Reading comprehension is the vast majority of the SAT reading section, and I have spent four years creating new methods for teaching reading comprehension that have achieved remarkable results. In that time I have found it is the most difficult skill for many students to master, and my customized problem sets and lesson plans can help break down and simplify the process for your student. I focus on effective reading and note taking, with intense drills to break the student of bad habits while encouraging proper reading techniques. I will learn from your student what subjects they have a legitimate interest in and teach them from reading materials drawn from those subjects. I have never failed to help a student dramatically improve their SAT reading abilities and I would love the opportunity to help yours as well.

SAT Writing

My passion is helping students become what I call 'fluent' writers, as comfortable writing any style of essay as they would be having a conversation with a friend. I have four years of experience helping students learn how to perfect their SAT writing skills, and I take real pleasure in teaching this crucial skill to prepare them not only for the test but for a successful college career. Building confidence while teaching critical thinking skills is my focus when working on the SAT in particular, because a perfect essay is about confidence, pacing and sticking to what you know. I look forward to the opportunity to work with your student and help them realize their potential as a writer.

Writing

I have spent seven years as a writing tutor, helping students and adults develop their writing to a professional level of excellence. Whether it is an SAT essay, a law school brief or an English paper I have an established, effective program to help improve all aspects of writing from personal voice to important vocabulary.
