Hi! Let me guess: you're getting ready to run the gauntlet of standardized tests that guard admission to the school of your dreams, and it feels like that dream where you walk into a class naked, without having studied, and with no number-2 pencil.
We can beat that monster together. I'm a graduate of Wellesley College (undergrad) and Harvard University (masters), with an SAT of 760V/750M and a GRE score of 800V/770M. I have scored a 5 on both AP English tests, as well as the US History, Government, and Calculus exams (and a 4 on Art History). This isn't because I'm a genius--it's because I'm a good test taker, and I can help you become a better one as well. Whether you want to try to make dramatic gains on a test or you just need a bit of tweaking, I can tailor my approach to your needs.
I was a peer tutor in college, I've taught 10th grade English, and I've helped South African university students prepare for the GRE--so no matter where you fall on the spectrum, we can customize an approach to help you make the strides you want to make.
I also love tutoring English, literature, and social studies, among others, so whether you're getting a summer school credit out of the way, struggling to get through a tough course, or shooting for an A and a 5 on the AP test, I'd love to help you.
College is so much more than a test score--but the test score is a prerequisite for getting there. Let's own it so you can have the college experience you dream of!
Very inspiring! — Shannon is an excellent tutor. She has a sensational approach with my son, who never wanted a tutor in English. She doesn't only help him organize his ideas, but also inspires him to go beyond what he is comfortable with. In only a few sessions with her, he developed a strategy to reach an A. Now, he works for a better A. Thank you, Shannon! ...
