I'm exclusively an SAT
tutor, and I can help you maximize your score! I tutor all sections of the SAT and ACT, and I provide value for parents by consistently outperforming the highest priced tutors.
I draw on both years of experience as a course instructor for a premier test prep company and a strong background in cognitive psychology
to personalize my approach for each of my students. I weave cutting-edge test-taking strategies into individualized lessons. With each new student, I begin by carefully observing how the student naturally proceeds as a test-taker. I then tailor my instruction toward my student's strengths, making sure that each student feels challenged yet motivated.
I have a strong track record of success: I've tutored some students toward perfect SAT 800's/ACT 36's and others out of trouble-zones into respectability. Whether a student is intellectually gifted or requires specialized instruction, I always proceed at a pace and in a style that instills confidence.
Parents are most impressed by my ability to connect with my students in such a manner that they are motivated to learn and eager to perform to their potential. My students like me, but they also realize that I hold them to a high degree of excellence: I expect their best.
To familiarize by students with the stresses and pressures of the real exam, I coordinate weekend morning practice exams on the optimal dates leading up to test day. In other words, I ensure that my students practice their new skills and knowledge in a simulated test day environment: an unfamiliar place, surrounded by students they don't know and at the same weekend morning time as the real exam.
As for my background, I have a master's degree in psychology, and when I am not dedicating myself toward my students' test day success, I am working toward a second master's in statistics
*For cost-conscious parents, if your son or daughter is available during off-peak hours or can meet me at a more convenient location, I can make myself available at a reduced rate.
