In the fall, I will commence my junior year at the University of Pennsylvania. I was also admitted to Dartmouth College, Duke University, Cornell University and Northwestern University. I have a great deal of experience with the college admissions process, and I am very familiar with the SAT, ACT and Advanced Placement examinations. I would love to help other students get into the colleges of their dreams via consulting on applications, essays, etc.

In terms of my personal experience with standardized tests, I received perfect scores on both the reading and math sections of the ACT and the math section of the SAT; I also took 16 AP Exams. My students find my testing strategies to be extremely effective come test day, and they find that they result in remarkable gains once scores come through.

Having spent the last five years tutoring students in public speaking, I have a great deal of experience and look forward to continue tutoring over the summer. I am interested in tutoring in math (Algebra I to AP Calculus BC), English (SAT/ACT Prep to AP English Lang/Lit), introductory economics and history (any level).
