I went to Penn and definitely understand the constraints and competition that students deal with consistently. Everyone wants that tiny bit of help to keep them in the running or to hopefully stand out. Tutoring definitely helps, but outside of making sure your tutor is suitable, responsible, and good on paper -- you need a tutor who makes understanding your student's learning style their *utmost* priority. This is the basis of my teaching philosophy: customized learning. From the first lesson on, we will discuss your student's learning style, challenges, and goals; and then devise a curriculum that incorporates these factors into a learning plan from which your student will derive the most value.
About me: for the past 12+ years, I've been tutoring secondary school students, in the NYC area, and for the past 4 years as an educational consultant in Frankfurt, Germany. From 2004-2008, I also co-founded and ran a bicultural children's educational nonprofit based in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Bottom line: I absolutely LOVE to teach. And I really think that loving what you do matters -- this enthusiasm is sometimes the extra boost that matters, to get the material off the page and committed to our minds. The many students I've worked with, along with their parents, would heartily recommend me; I can definitely provide recommendations and referrals.
I am certified to teach and prep students for both the BULATS and BEC (the Oxford Business English test). I have been working in Germany (Frankfurt, Cologne) for the past 4 years, teaching English to students from absolute beginner level to advanced (according to the European framework, this is from A1-C1 levels). I'm a native English speaker, and have scored 800 on my SAT Writing and Reading and Lit tests each time I have taken them (I took the SAT I several times to boost my math score). In any case, my previous employer in Germany (a language institute) would heartily recommend my English teaching skills and vouch for me.
My students typically achieve an average score increase of 100 points. I show them the best shortcuts to answer in the most efficient manner (and not waste precious allotted minutes); as well as ways to start "thinking like the test" so they know what answers the SAT is looking for!
