A successful test-taker is a prepared test-taker. As both a university instructor and a test prep tutor, I am devoted to helping students master the daunting process of standardized testing. I teach the very best strategies, tips and shortcuts for the SAT, GRE and GMAT. I want each of my students to have the clearest advantage on test day.
For each section of the test, I teach only proven methods for raising a score. This includes an easy-to-learn Challenger Thesaurus. The Challenger Thesaurus increases the student's vocabulary dramatically and efficiently by setting comprehensive word lists into dynamic word relationships.
For reading comprehension questions, I teach a powerful and efficient method of analysis called MAPS, which stands for Meaning, Assumption, Purpose, and Structure. MAPS analyzes a passage quickly yielding its organization and logic as well as the function of each of its parts.
Next, teaching math for standardized tests can easily become bogged down by a mass of tricks students find difficult to remember on test day. I don't do that! I keep it clean and efficient, and focus on the fundamentals of problem solving.
Lastly, to achieve a high scoring essay, I show my students how to construct a position on the given issue by discussing it from multiple viewpoints. Supporting your position in an essay form becomes intuitive and fluid, and won’t have the artificial and tedious quality of the five paragraph template detested by graders.
I believe that if you know your test inside and out, you'll have all the confidence you need for test day.
