I really enjoy helping students learn. I particularly enjoy tutoring one-on-one because I can focus on what a student needs and spend as long as he or she needs for mastery. I have been teaching classes and tutoring in standardized test preparation for many years. I've worked with many students preparing for the SAT, ACT, GRE and GMAT. My own most recent GRE scores were 780 and 780. My coaching involves tips and perspective, but also involves practice on real test questions to familiarize students with the test and allay their anxiety. I have worked with students with vision impairment, dyslexia, ADD, OCD, ADHD and Asperger's syndrome, but most are normal students ranging from those weak on standardized tests to brilliant students working towards a perfect score. I have also worked as a classroom teacher in college-composition and creative-writing classes. While most clients have been interested in test prep., I also enjoy helping students with math up through Algebra II and with all types of writing, from business letters to fiction and poetry.
