Greetings and thank you for visiting my page!
I am a Kaplan-trained tutor, teacher and proofreader - I have over 5 years of experience teaching ACT, SAT and GMAT courses as well as one-on-one tutoring in math, reading, writing, proofreading and other subjects. I have personally scored at or above the 99th percentile on the SAT, ACT and GMAT, and have re-taken them over the past few years to stay "fresh." I am experienced with young students, high schoolers, undergraduates and adult learners. I am comfortable with one-on-one or group sessions, and have no trouble adapting my style to the student's needs.
I am trained as an engineer - I have a bachelor's degree in Materials Science Engineering and a Master's in Operations Management. I also earned an MBA focusing in Operations, Logistics and Six Sigma Management. This means that I am a logical, critical thinker that is able to break down complex ideas and topics into more manageable pieces.
Last but not least, I'm a down-to-earth person. I am a firm believer in using common sense and logic to attack problems. Let me teach you not only how to get a higher score on an exam, but how to approach problems in a more effective and efficient way.
My general thoughts on tutoring are as follows: people can only focus for so many hours per day and per week - thus, I recommend 1-1.5 hour sessions one to three times a week. I also believe that preparing in advance is key! It's better to meet twice a week for six weeks than three times a week for four weeks.
I look forward to earning your business and helping you achieve your goals!
