I am the tutor who puts his money where his mouth is. I get in there and take the SAT and other tests. I took the January 2013 SAT and scored a 2320 (800 Reading, 770 Math, 750 Writing. I got my superscore up to a 2400 when I scored a 2350 on the March 2014 SAT (750 Reading, 800 Math, 800 Writing). I also have a 35 ACT superscore when looking at my 2 2013 ACTs (35 English, 35 Math, 36 Reading, 33 Science).

I have been tutoring SAT (all 3 sections), GMAT, and other tests for over 15 years. I have worked with all sorts of students all over the world. I got a 780 on my GMAT. I have a very fun personality that gets the most out of people. I make learning fun.

I am available throughout the day and on some evenings and some weekends. I can travel throughout Philadelphia and NY/NJ, as I have clients in both areas.

I can also help with B-school applications and editing, as I have edited for the Bank of Japan for over a decade. I also do some writing and editing for Forbes.

You will be surprised what sort of knowledge I can unlock from deep in your brain!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I have tutored 100+ students in the ACT. Over 98% have gone up in score. Some by up to 7 points! I am funny and relate very well to children and teens. I teach the most common ACT writing questions and make kids confident about answering questions correctly.

My pricing and scheduling are both flexible.

Not only do I tutor the tests, I take them too! I have a 2400 Super score in the SAT for 2013-14 as an adult. I also have a 35 ACT Super score for 2013.

I put my money where my mouth is, and by taking the test, I won't just be speculating when I tell your children how to prepare. I will be battle-tested and armed with excellent first-hand information.

Please contact me for further info.

(-1)-(-5)=? (answer)

Minus a minus turns into a plus.  Most important thing to remember.     So -1 -(-5) is the same as -1+5.  And that is the same thing as 5-1.     Your answer is 5-1 = 4.
