I am a dedicated and patient test prep and math
instructor with more than five years' full-time experience in New York tutoring the SAT
with a large test prep company, in Buenos Aires running my own college preparation company, and here in Central Florida working as a private tutor.
My students have gone on to their top-choice universities that in many cases were just a dream school when we began the college prep process, including Columbia, Harvard, Yale, Brown, Cornell, MIT, University of Pennsylvania, University of Florida, and University of Miami.
I have 99th percentile scores on all sections of the SAT, ACT
, and GMAT
and was a National Merit Finalist because of my SAT scores, receiving a $100,000+ merit-based scholarship to New York University.
Unlike other tutors, I am highly proficient in teaching all sections of these exams AND the subject material behind them, not just the verbal or the quantitative portions, or strategy only. I don't tutor for extra income - this is my career and my passion, and my students have positive experiences and great score increases because of the professionalism and enthusiasm I bring to every session.
I focus on each student by creating an individualized lesson and study plan that adapts to his or her level, motivations, and learning type. I thoroughly enjoy the process of learning what motivates and makes sense to each student and my students benefit greatly.
Staying ahead of changes and updates in the college preparation process is hard work. I regularly take the exams; write, rewrite, and update my prep materials, as well as investigate what the universities are looking for in other areas of the application. Every fall I read applications for an elite national college scholarship program, and I regularly attend college fairs and campus tours.
Please note: As of 19-Nov-2014, I am accepting new test preparation
and admissions counseling students. I have Saturday availability now and will have weekday availability beginning 01-Dec-2014. Sessions are typically two hours in length and in-home.
