I have two graduate degrees from Harvard, have served on a Harvard admissions committee, and have led seminars and study groups at the Harvard Kennedy School. My areas of specialization are SAT and MCAT verbal test preparation, admissions essays and counseling, critical reading and writing skills. I have been teaching for 20+years and have won 3 teaching awards, including a Harvard Club award for teaching and public service.
I am dedicated to my students' success. Students who can commit to a twelve to sixteen week program of rigorous training in critical reading and writing usually score above 700 on the verbal section of the SAT and a 10 or above on the verbal portion of the MCAT. Like anything worthwhile, it takes focus and hard work, but a significant improvement in verbal skills is available when there is a combination of hard work and skillful teaching.
I take this work very seriously because it has lifetime consequences for students and my record speaks for itself in student evaluations. I enjoy working with students who are committed to their futures and my greatest reward is seeing their success.
