I have experience tutoring students for the SAT and ACT in all areas of the tests and have taught mathematics at the high school level. I have a proven track record of increasing students' ACT and SAT scores and improving their skills. My approach is tailored specifically to the student, so no two programs are alike. My expertise allows me to quickly identify students' problem areas and most effectively address these in the shortest amount of time possible. For the SAT, each student receives a 95-page spiral-bound book of strategies, notes, and practice problems that I created from scratch after a rigorous analysis of the test.
In high school I scored 1550/1600 (780M, 770V) on the SAT, in January 2013 I scored 2390/2400 (800M, 790R, 800W), and in October 2013 I scored 2380/2400 (800M, 780R, 800W). Yes, I still take the tests to make sure I am teaching the appropriate material. I am available to tutor only for the ACT and SAT (all subject areas) at this time, weekdays 8am-9pm and Saturdays 730am-9pm.
I am a Princeton University graduate with a B.S.E. in Operations Research and Financial Engineering, plus I have taken education courses at Delaware Valley College. I am hard-working, patient, and able to connect well with students of all abilities and ages. I truly enjoy helping students achieve their goals. Thanks for visiting my page, and best of luck!
I majored in Operations Research and Financial Engineering at Princeton, which involved a great deal of higher level math similar to that seen on the Praxis test. To earn the degree I had to take a number of upper-level math courses. Also I was recognized by ETS for scoring in the top 15% of all Praxis II Mathematics test takers.
