I am a double Ivy League graduate (with degrees from Yale and Columbia) offering tutoring in a variety of areas. I am especially strong in language (reading, writing, grammar, organization, essays) and SAT preparation. For the last five years I have been an employee of a Connecticut-based tutoring and SAT preparation company, and I have worked with children and adults through piano lessons as an independent teacher for the last ten years.

I spend time with students to make sure they understand the material. I am friendly, but will work hard to ensure that the student learns the material.

Bar Exam

I passed the New York Bar Exam on the first try in 2008, with a Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) score of 151.4, significantly over the average scaled score of 140. I have special flashcards and other study methods designed for retaining the information on the bar exam.

Piano

I have played in numerous performances nationally and internationally, including at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, in Israel, and in the Republic of Georgia. I have studied for nearly 30 years, since age six, with professors from the Juilliard School, the Manhattan School of Music, Yale, and the Aspen Music Festival. I have over 10 years of teaching experience, including all ages, from four to fifty.

Great Educational Specialist The main goal of my lessons was improving my TOEFL score. I had difficulties with the Speaking and Writing sections, so we were focused on these two issues. What I liked the most about James is that he was very attentive; he was attentive to my goals and to my errors.
