I graduated from Harvard in May 2014 with a degree in Neurobiology and Portuguese. I will work as an investment banker in NYC starting July 7th. I taught the SAT with Ivy Insiders (only for top scoring teachers) and Living Stone Academy (for students at TJHSST-- the high school with the highest average SAT score in the nation). I am currently the curriculum designer for the SAT for the company POINTS Prep. I scored an 800 in Math and 760 in CR in high school. Since then, I have scored a perfect 2400 as a teacher.
SAT tutoring is a personal investment in your child's future. Two hundred points on the test can be the difference between full tuition and honors scholarships. Your investment will pay off in more college options, scholarships, and academic awards. Your score can be that extra push your child's application needs to get into selective colleges.
I am a very affable person and have not only taught the SATs, but also held award-winning programs internationally. In my last class, I raised the average SAT score by 215 points with my 19 students. Long-term personal tutoring usually results in 300-400 point increases combined, depending on your base levels and our timeline.
My rate depends on the subject and our timeline. The lesson planning has already taken hundreds of hours, so you'll be on the receiving end of my institutional knowledge with Ivy Insiders, Living Stone Academy, and POINTS! I know there are a lot of tutors online, but none have the specialized knowledge of the SAT as I do. They work on the SATs as a hobby, I do it professionally.
Kaplan hired me and told me that they would charge kids $2899 for 32 hours and convince parents that 70 points is a good improvement. I felt sick to my stomach. I immediately told them I no longer wished to work with the company. I will write a contract for you that if a student starts at 1500, I will personally guarantee you that he or she will be at 1700 in 18 sessions or I will give your student free lessons until he or she reaches that score.
Always online (Very effective for Math and Writing). I have a Surface so I can tutor similar to Khan Academy. Online rate is VERY negotiable.
Around NoVA until July 7th.
NYC until July 2016.
Rates and sessions:
I do 2 hour sessions once or twice a week for 2 months or so depending on the student's level. I will develop a timeline for the student and we can agree to a meeting schedule. I will always tell you exactly what I think my expectations are and your best options.
