For the past six years, I have tutored LSAT (all sections), GMAT all sections and SAT (quant section). I hold an MBA in finance from New York University (Stern), where I graduated in the top 20% of my class.

When I was a student, I scored in the 99th percentile on the math section of the SAT, as well as on the quant section of the GMAT.

I enjoy working with teens, college students and working professionals. As we quickly establish rapport, you will be able to focus and absorb the material that you need to learn. You will have fun as you quickly gain the knowledge you need in order to do your best.

My students have told me that I've got a gift for teaching and expanding their minds, and I can help you to learn how to make appropriate inferences and answer questions correctly and rapidly, so that you get your highest possible score on test day.

It is very important that you get your best possible score on these entrance exams, because a high score can mean thousands of dollars of scholarship money, which can make a top school much more affordable.

Some of my students have recovered their investment in tutoring tenfold, so it is worth the investment in a top-quality test prep professional.

When you are preparing for the LSAT, GMAT or SAT, you want to work with someone who knows these exams inside and out. Many tutors teach ten or more subjects. Since the LSAT and GMAT have question-types that are unique to those exams, generalist tutors cannot possibly know the LSAT and GMAT sufficiently if they are devoting tutoring time to many other subjects.

I am an LSAT, GMAT and SAT specialist who can help you to put all of the material into perspective, and help you to better understand tips and tricks -- not just memorize formulas, so that you will be able to apply the appropriate technique to each question that is presented. You will train in the use of diagrams, charts and logic to simplify each question, and to significantly improve the likelihood of your quickly selecting the correct answer.

When you work with me, we can spend time working only on the material that you are having difficulty with, so that we are not spending time on concepts that you have mastered.

I can adapt different approaches to working with students of differing abilities and backgrounds. I will help you to become self-sufficient, so that you really learn how to answer the questions quickly and accurately on test day.

Contact me today, and get on track to acing the LSAT, GMAT or SAT!

Best,
Paul

Study Skills

I have been tutoring students for six years, primarily in preparation for SAT, GMAT and LSAT exams. I have had students of many different skill levels and aptitudes. Below are some general guidelines that I recommend to any student who needs help in structuring a study plan and methodology. When we work together, I will tailor this program to meet your specific needs.

Determine your goals, values, and priorities.
Evaluate your schedule and make adjustments as appropriate.
Get a plan before starting a task. Set time limits to stay focused.
Break tasks into manageable (and meaningful) chunks.
Stay caught up with reading and assignments.
Have a strategy for taking tests. Monitor your time.
Stay up-to-date on assignments. Learn material and review as you go along.
Analyze past tests to determine how you can improve your test-taking skills.
Ask the instructor about the test. Ask yourself what was stressed in the text and in lectures.
Apply stress management techniques to deal with test anxiety.
Break up study sessions by units or chapters.
Prepare to answer different kinds of test questions.
Survey the test. Answer the easiest questions first, to control anxiety. Then strategize a plan and concentrate greatest effort on the questions that are worth the most points.
Outline responses to essay questions before writing.
