Welcome! I'm a graduate student working towards my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a specialist in tutoring the GRE, SAT, and ACT. I'm also a published writer, excellent editor, and am committed to the success of those I work with.

My students are guaranteed relaxed and enjoyable sessions filled with patience, motivation, and a commitment to their goals. With 10+ years of tutoring experience both privately and with licensed, accredited higher learning companies, I consider myself an expert and have had the pleasure of helping my students realize their potential and see drastic increases in their test scores and overall confidence.

My goal is to teach you how to approach every question type, recognize exactly what is being asked, and learn how to break down each problem into manageable steps. Regardless of where you are in the process (whether you've just decided to apply for graduate school/college, have already taken an exam but not yet reached your target score, or somewhere in between) I guarantee that by test day, you'll feel confident and prepared to answer every question you're presented.

My personal journey has included dedication, many hours of study, and a realization that enjoying the process to reach one’s goals (i.e., understanding the importance of work-life balance) play a critical role in our overall success. Although I'm very friendly, my style of tutoring is focused on effectiveness, efficiency, and taking your test prep to the next level. I take my position as a tutor very seriously and enjoy working with motivated students. I look forward to working together to help you achieve success!

GRE

Studying for the GRE can be a strenuous, frustrating task, especially without proper support! I scored in the 93rd Percentile on my GRE exam and have helped numerous students significantly raise their overall GRE scores, meet their goals, and find themselves in the graduate programs of their dreams! Don't be fooled, the GRE is not a test of your intelligence. You can learn to master the exam, all you need is the right study skills.

Special Needs

I am currently a Doctoral student in Clinical Psychology. After graduate school, I will begin working as a licensed clinical psychologist. I have a strong knowledge of various mental health diagnoses and have worked in multiple clinical settings with populations of varying psychological needs, including hospitals, research labs, public schools, and summer camps. My research has focused primarily on Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD. In addition to my clinical experience, I have siblings diagnosed with Autism, bipolar disorder, ADHD, OCD, and Tourette Syndrome. I am confident that I can work with individuals who require any level of special attention and can manage to meet students where they are to help them grow and reach their potential. For the aforementioned reasons, I believe I am highly qualified to be listed as a special needs tutor.

Adam is the best

I'm glad I sought out to Adam for my GRE prepping. He was flexible in meeting every week with my busy work schedule. He assessed what I needed to work on in both the math and verbal sections, went over every practice sets and tests, and provided effective studying tips. I was able to raise my GRE scores to get where I needed for grad school admission. He was able to help out with my personal statement for grad school admission as well. Couldn't have gotten into my top grad school choice without Adam. Highly recommend!

Eduardo, 2 lessons with Adam
Tutor responded:

Eduardo was an absolute pleasure to work with. He committed himself to the process, put in the necessary hours to reach his goals, and applied himself from beginning to end. Once he received his GRE score and after we worked on his application essays, Eduardo found himself in a pleasantly challenging situation...deciding which graduate school to commit to!

Effective and patient tutor

Adam is great with my 4th-grader and has helped him to develop a motivation to learn the schoolwork. He's very patient with my son and very creative in getting him to focus on his assignments. He's been extremely helpful and has provided a well-needed encouragement with my son's academic progress.

Shang, 7 lessons with Adam
Tutor responded:

Working with Shang and her son was a lot of fun! I noticed in our first session that her son was not super excited about tutoring, and to be honest...how many 9 year-olds want to meet with a tutor during their summer break? Fortunately, I was able to engage Shang's son early on and our sessions soon turned into something that he looked forward to attending on the weekends.

Great so far!

We had our first session with Adam and it went better than expected, especially since my son does not think he needs a tutor for writing. Adam was able to connect with him and turn his attitude around. My son thanked me for choosing Adam as his tutor after a great first session!

Eve, 6 lessons with Adam
Tutor responded:

Thank you for the kind message, Eve. Working with your son on his AP coursework and high school newspaper writing assignments brought me back to my high school days. Indeed, he was a bit hesitant at first about bringing in a tutor. As soon as we started working together, he started thinking about creative writing in a completely different way and his homework became something he was actually excited to tackle. I took great pleasure in reading his publications in the Venice Beach newspaper!
