I specialize in GRE tutoring and firmly believe that anyone can improve their score on the verbal section. I am an etymology zealot (etymology is the study of the origin and development of words), and I received a perfect score on the GRE Verbal section in 2012 (it wasn't my first try). If you can pay better attention to quirky bits of history than to rote memorization of definitions, then you can improve your score too.
Another specialty of mine is psychology, especially clinical/abnormal. My background is in psychiatric epidemiology research, and I have interviewed over 400 individuals with psychotic and mood disorders. I have also trained many interviewers in psychopathology, phenomenology, and diagnosis, which often leads to discussions on epistemology (theory of knowledge). Look no further if you need help with the GRE subject test for Psychology.
I have also written many hundreds of pages of professional narrative, and have edited an equivalent amount written by coworkers. I provide diligent editing services focused on improving organization and flow, and strengthening arguments, in addition to grammar and spelling review.
My strength as a tutor lies in my dynamic approach. Everyone learns differently, and I make a point of understanding how each person learns. While I set out to help people get the test scores they want, I try to help them develop a network of knowledge that improves retention and the ability to use information when it counts. Above all, my goal is to encourage curiosity and a belief in self improvement.
