I specialize in standardized tests taken for higher education. I am a top scorer in GRE, GMAT, SAT and TOEFL and that was how I started tutoring while preparing for my applications. I now have been tutoring for almost two years and have had a broad range of students from different disciplines mostly from the Five colleges who are happy to provide references.

Having a degree in the social sciences I am especially competent in the quantitative and writing sections in which I scored in the top in my last tests. Also these are the sections I am most experienced in teaching. However I also help my students with verbal section.

I am a student centered tutor and in my first class I always customize my lesson programs in accordance with students' needs. Though I am experienced, my experience taught me that no two students are the same so instead of the reverse, I adapt to the student each time. I am constructive but also persistent making sure that the student has mastered the topic before I proceed to the next. Over the years, I have examined many prep materials and I have a selection of bests which I use in my classes.

My previous students left my classes content and with positive feedback. I look forward to helping you with any of those tests.

Good luck to all.
