Hi! My name is Derek and I have over 20 years of tutoring experience. After graduating from the Wharton School of Business, UPenn's School of Engineering, and USC's Film School, I began working as a tutor for some of the largest test prep companies in the world.

Hi! My name is Derek and I have over 20 years of tutoring experience. After graduating from the Wharton School of Business, UPenn's School of Engineering, and USC's Film School, I began working as a tutor for some of the largest test prep companies in the world. Based on my reputation and score improvements, I have become one of the most elite and in-demand tutors at every single company I've ever worked for. I've achieved this by 1) helping students earn massive score improvements (always averaging the largest score increases among the top of all instructors for every company), 2) teaching students every single concept that appears on the exam, and then making sure they've mastered them, and 3) truly caring about my students and working as hard as I can to get them a massive score increase. Ideally, this is done through fun and engaging lessons discussing real world examples.

In addition to my tutoring experience, I have also helped design curriculum for several companies. I've taught thousands of students for companies such as The Princeton Review, TestMasters, Blueprint, and ArborBridge. I written practice problems, analyzed wrong answer trends, and have probably thought about standardized tests as much as anyone over the past twenty years.

Aside from having a mastery of the exams, I have also worked hard to hone my actual teaching and tutoring skills. It's important to be able to adapt to different learning styles and find what works for each student. It's also necessary to be able to create captivating, engaging lessons that can hold a student's interest. My students all improve their critical reasoning, reading comprehension, and logical analysis skills, and they do so in a fun, captivating environment. My undergrad and grad students have been accepted to schools such as Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Yale, Penn, Columbia, Duke, Georgetown, MIT, John Hopkins, NYU, and Berkeley, just to name a few.

With regard to the ACT, I have scored perfects on the exam numerous times, and I have helped write several books on the exam. Additionally, I graduated with a degree from Wharton in International Finance, and I was even an award winning Mathlete in high school. I also have an engineering degree to help with science, and an MFA in Screenwriting for the English and reading portions. I know every single concept that is tested on the math, science, English, and reading sections, and after working with me, my students always know them, too. This has led to student's scores increasing by a roughly either a six point score jump or an official score in the 30s.

For the LSAT, I have taught thousands of students and trained dozens of instructors. I have scored in the 99th percentile on every exam I have taken, and I know the methodologies of every major test prep company, including TestMasters, PowerScore, Blueprint, The Princeton Review, Kaplan, The LSAT Trainer, 7sage, and Manhattan LSAT. Additionally, I have written course materials for the exam, and I am comfortable with every section on the test. My students average over a fifteen point increase, and a very large portion scores in the 170s.

I have spent the better part of two decades helping students improve their scores and prospects for admission. I would be happy to help you, as well. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or comments. Thanks for reading!! I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully helping you achieve your dream scores!
