I am a professional tutor specializing in test preparation aimed at achieving elite scores. I scored a 2400 on the SAT and in the 99th percentile on the LSAT, and have successfully taught SAT and LSAT prep for Kaplan and The Princeton Review. I love teaching and the tremendous rewards of helping my students gain confidence and enthusiasm, break through blocks, and earn fantastic scores and grades.

I graduated from Yale and Columbia Law School with highest honors, and am an alum of Hunter College High School in New York City. I've analyzed my own study and test-taking techniques as well as the methods taught and recommended by several test prep organizations and publishers to understand the variety of techniques that can be effective to improve scores. I work with students to select and develop their best techniques from amongst all available to us.

Patience, good humor, understanding, persistence, and faith in my students' abilities are key components of my teaching approach. We will shape our lessons to focus on your specific needs and learning style, and strive to equip you both for your immediate test prep objectives and more broadly as a student who can take on anything thanks to your superior study and work habits.

I offer lessons in Nyack at my private teaching space as well as home lessons throughout Rockland, Westchester, and New York City. My rate for lessons in Nyack (posted above) is more modest than those of many elite test prep tutors in order to help bring high performance within reach of a much broader spectrum of students. My home lesson rates vary depending upon location and timing.
