I first took the SAT during my junior year of high school. Though 2170 is by no means a bad score, I was convinced that I could do better, so I got my hands on what I deemed to be the most effective study materials and taught myself how to beat the SAT. When I took the test again and scored a 2370, I decided to start an SAT tutoring service out of my high school. I devised a 10-part individual tutoring plan and subsequently helped 5 students raise their scores, including one who went on to study at Yale. During college, I prepared students for the SAT Reasoning Test and the SAT Subject Tests through Harvard Student Agencies. I also taught a 3-part SAT class for groups of up to 20 high school students, so I am familiar with the dynamics of both one-on-one and group tutoring.
Because of my years of experience, I am comfortable answering all the tough SAT content questions that students may have. Furthermore, I know how to teach students methods to “learn” the test. It is important that students not only are familiar with the material that will be on the SAT, but understand the types of questions they will come across, and strategies for answering each type of question. I love working with high school students, especially helping to instill in them the confidence to do well on what can seem like an incredibly daunting task.
