I would love the opportunity to help you or your child succeed. I've been tutoring for 12 years and have helped hundreds of students master difficult subjects. My clientele are divided into two categories:

The first half are from New York City private (Dalton, Chapin, Horace Mann, Fieldston) and public (Eleanor Roosevelt) schools. I cover primarily the SAT as well as Math, Statistics, English, History, Government, Economics, and Biology/Chemistry. Many of my students require specialized teaching and I tailor my instruction to fit their needs. For example, I have a 6th grade student who understands Math in a more visual way so I draw tons of graphs and pictures to convey a point. Others are better at verbalizing their understanding so I have them repeat concepts back to me in their own words. Nearly all my students have been referred by existing clients and references are available upon request. The majority of my clients have been with me for over a year and meet with me 2 or 3 times per week. These patient and consistent relationships have worked wonders with the students.

The second half of my clientele consists of college students and young professionals studying for the LSAT and GMAT. I use the techniques I discovered on my own when studying for the LSAT (170, 98th percentile) and GMAT (750 Q50, V41 98th percentile). I've helped tens of students markedly increase their scores using by providing flashcards, extra practice questions and testing strategies. My schedule is flexible and am always a text or call away to help with momentary difficulty.

I hope to be a part of your success!

ADD/ADHD

I have dealt with both ADD and ADHD personally through medicine and therapy. I am aware of precisely what is required in terms of techniques to help students focus and succeed. I give frequent breaks to my students and keep them entertained with games relating to the subject material. I've been tutoring for 12 years and have helped hundreds of students master difficult subjects.

Bible Studies

I went to both elementary and advanced schools for Bible and Talmudic Studies--Valley Torah High School and Ner Aryeh School for Talmudic Learning. I am familiar primarily with the Old Testament and Judaic literature and currently study at least one page per day in the 'Daf Yomi' cycle.

Discrete Math

I've tutored students of all ages (including a 64 year old at Fordham University) in discrete math and am familiar with probability, systems of equations, and statistics that are included in the subject. In my previous job as an options trader I employed many of the concepts dealt with in discrete math.

Social Studies

I have tutored tens of students from New York private and public schools in Social Studies. I worked in the Department of Justice early in my career and am quite familiar with the U.S. government and U.S. demographics. As an Economics major in U.C. Berkeley, I wrote several reports on countries such as Brazil, Argentina and local U.S. municipalities--all examining access to basic resources and local demography.
