I am an experienced tutor, with over 25 students helped in the past 2 years alone. I am based in Newton Centre but I am willing to travel to meet you at a local library. I have worked with public school and private school students from 8th grade through college seniors.
You will find me reliable and flexible. I teach in your home, a library, a cafe, or my home. My students find the lessons creative and enjoyable. As a long-time WyzAnt tutor, I have great references as well as proven success. My preferred approach is customized lessons, tailored to each student's strengths and weaknesses. With a Harvard BA and a JD, I have found that I love to teach. The past three years, I have developed broad expertise tutoring for the GRE, SAT and ACT, raising student scores by up to 200 points on average for the SAT, for example. Many types of students benefit, ranging from from those frustrated with their test-taking skills in general, to top students who want to strengthen their scores in one or more areas.
I love tutoring and motivating students to do their best. My work with students at all levels shows that we can make real progress in 6-10 ninety minute sessions, although some students prefer 2 hour sessions. I prefer weekday afternoon and evening times, and I also teach on Sundays (not Saturdays).
I offer excellent tutoring in all areas: Writing, Math and Reading tutoring on the SAT as well as the ACT. In particular, I have great tools for improving your writing skills, grammar, vocabulary and essay scores.
Sample lesson topics: math technical skill building, tips on identifying 'trick' questions, study tricks for vocabulary drills, grammar lessons that are lively and interesting, and general strategy.
I offer reasonable rates for an experienced college-prep tutor, averaging about $90 per hour, depending upon the location and circumstances (for example, my top rate applies to help with essay-writing or college application advising). I am lively, patient, and skilled at make the tutoring sessions interesting and often fun!
NOTE: I have had great success helping college and grad school applicants with their interview prep, application strategy, personal statements as well as drafting and editing application essays.
