If you are looking for a tutor who can not only help you ace exams but the ins and outs of education from elementary school to college, then you have found the right person!
I have been in the test prepping and consulting business for more than 6 years. I have led one-on-one tutoring sessions and large groups for many types of classes ranging from the TOEFL to SAT2 Biology. Some of my students have gone on to amazing colleges such as Duke, Stanford, and Cornell to name a few.
Over the years, I have run across hundreds of students from varying backgrounds with different learning habits and challenges. I must say I've learned from them as much as they have learned from me. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and constantly think about how I can improve not only the test scores of my students, but to guide them to do better in all that they do.
I can help you with:
SAT I all sections. Yes, there are tons and tons of books with all different strategies. Some of those strategies work and some simply aren't effective. For instance, did you know that the Sparknotes books are full of typos and errors? Did you know that the Fisk SAT I prep books aren't very accurate? I have all the books and I have dissected all of them question by question. I can customize which books and questions will work for you to improve your scores in a short amount of time.
TOEFL. I am an immigrant myself. I didn't have to take the TOEFL, as I came to the U.S. when I was in elementary school. However, as I was constantly immersed in a society of immigrants, I naturally became somewhat of an expert in teaching English to immigrants - my mother and father to name two. Furthermore, as a consultant, I have extensive experience with international students. I have helped them get into some top colleges and I know that everything starts with TOEFL.
SAT 2 subject tests. I have four years of experience teaching SAT II Biology and Math Subject level tests. I have never had a student dip below 700 on any of the SAT II subject tests for the last four years. SAT 2 subject tests tend to be challenging for many students and they really shouldn't be! I can make it easy for you by explaining the concepts you absolutely must know to ace the exams in a simple way.
College essays and consulting. I have been a lead consultant at an education consulting firm for 3 years. I know the college process thoroughly. I know about the major summer camp programs and how to prepare for them. I know what scholarships looks good and how to prep for them. I know what colleges are excellent for the different majors. I can help you write that perfect essay and impress the interviewer.
General school help in all subjects. I can cover all subjects up to high school - biology, chem, physics, mathematics, English etc. My belief is that students simply need to be taught good studying skills to excel. If the material is made to be fun and exciting, all students can excel.
+ more. Just ask!
Thanks and looking forward to working with you and learning from you.
