Hi and thanks for visiting my profile. I provide top-of-the-line individual tutoring for the GRE/GMAT, for the SAT/ACT, and for history and law classes of all levels.
In each of these subjects, I have been in your shoes and so I know what it means to struggle with the material. I know how frustrating it can be when the classroom teacher and text books/prep books are just not enough. What many tutors just do not get is that if all a student needed was a teacher-like presentation of the material, the student would not need a tutor.
I get it, though. Tutoring is not just about my experience and education, or how well I know the material. It's much more about my understanding each individual student and why they struggle. It's also about communicating the same concept in any number of ways, so every student can get it. This is what good tutoring is all about.
I totally get it...and I get you, remember, I've been there myself.
Call or email me, we've got work to do.
My GMAT tutoring is specifically designed to meet the stated objectives of the test. The GMAT wants us to combine information with logic and reasoning to find solutions to problems. So, I try to show you how to do just this.
My instruction is therefore divided into three separate parts: The information, the logic and reasoning, and (perhaps most important of all) how to combine the information with the logic and reasoning.
The information is the academic skills (math, verbal and writing) the GMAT expects us to know. Even though most students look at learning these skills as the main focus of their preparation, the reality is that this is only the starting point.
The second part of my instruction focuses on the logical skills. Together, we will define these logical skills as a set of teachable general principles. These principles are practical and simple to understand.
The third and final part of the instruction shows students how these principles can be easily applied to a wide range of academic concepts to solve problems.
I have found that when you combine these three lessons, you can effectively understand exactly what each question is asking for and exactly how to approach the answer process.
I remember about 5 years ago when I was looking for a GRE tutor. The first tutor I used had an Ivy League degree and the second tutor had a PhD in Math. I couldn’t understand a word either of them said to me. You see, they were total geniuses, and I’m not. They couldn’t speak my language.
Next, I turned to the prep books. I was amazed at how easy they made everything seem…until I realized they wrote the questions they were telling us how to answer. Then I understood why they always said stuff like “This is a good question for plugging in numbers, and the number 7 works really well here…”
My approach to tutoring for the GRE is much simpler: First, here are the “A, B, Cs” and “1, 2, 3s” we need to know and here is how we are going to learn them. Second, here is how we de-code GRE questions to make sense of them. Third, practice, practice, practice…
I give every GRE student a personalized plan for GRE success and then I help the student execute the plan. With an organized and sensible prep plan, EVERY student can score well on the GRE…including you.
Please take the GRE seriously, because your score really does matter. Grad school admission is ultra-competitive and it is the key to you fulfilling your academic and professional dreams. If you are ready to work, I am ready to help you reach your dreams!
