I began tutoring more than eight years ago in connection with my position as a librarian at a private, college preparatory high school and was rewarded and fulfilled as I saw how much improvement my students made with intense, one-on-one private tutoring. I began working exclusively with high school students to prepare them for standardized tests two years ago, because I knew I could help students think effectively and critically--and give them the confidence they need to master these tests. Rather than rely on tricks or guessing strategies, I will work with you to break down the information you need in manageable chunks, and show you exactly what you need to do to score big.

I currently hold a B.A. from Indiana University and an M.B.A. from Penn State and have successfully tutored more than 40 high school students for the SATs and the ACTs over the past two years. While success rates vary, most of my students gain an average of 200 points on their exams. Whether you are an average student looking to raise your across the board, or a more advanced student seeking specific, targeted goals, my tutoring program can help you achieve your goals. With a unique program designed specifically for you, I will maximize your time and focus mainly on the areas where you need the most improvement.

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.

Study Skills

I have worked as a tutor for Mercersburg Academy since 2005 in addition to my role as a Librarian. In addition to tutoring in English, History and Religion, I taught study skills to many students seeking help with organization, time management, test taking strategies and note taking techniques. I developed an 8 week program that I called "Simple Steps" which is designed to help students become better students by managing their coursework and life. In addition, I worked as an instructor for Mercersburg Academy for four summers teaching study skills to incoming freshman.
