If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I possess degrees in engineering and finance and have tutoring experience with Kaplan in standardized tests (LSAT and GMAT) and special subject matter. I've also served as an admission counselor for a top business school.

My teaching style is deliberate with concrete steps to approach both study habits and assigned tasks. I immediately assess existing ability to identify strengths and areas for improvement. This allows for maximum success within a specified time window.

For standardized test preparation, I make sure students understand the reason for and format of each test. Test takers should understand time management and set a score or percentile range as an ultimate goal.

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.

ISEE

As an engineer with a communications minor, I specialize in both verbal and quantitative material on standardized tests. I have helped students prepare for the SSAT and ISEE through grasping the context of verbal question prompts and formulating a preliminary response to select the best answer. Similarly, I utilize number properties and relationships to foster competence around quantitative test problems. I've successfully taught verbal and quantitative content to many students from ages 9 and up. Confidence and familiarity with the test are imperative for high performance. I've scored in the 99th percentile on verbal standardized tests and taught quantitative content for Kaplan.

Great tutor very patient — My first session was great she was very patient with and took the time to explain everything properly. I truly believe that with time I will get to my goal of a 150-160 for the lsat. ...
