About John

John has over three years of tutoring experience, with 100% of students scoring at least a 600 on the SAT Critical Reading Section. Most of his students, however, score in the 700 range. John scored a perfect 800 in 2009 as a senior in high school, received the Prize For Most Outstanding English Student in 2010, and received a Dean's Scholarship to the University of Southern California, where he recently graduated with his Bachelor's Degree. On his first testing, John found the CR section to be the most difficult, scoring a 540. Yet after preparing, he scored an 800 quite effortlessly. Notably, John is a young (age 22), energetic, and an experienced tutor. He has plenty of experience tutoring over Skype as well, so remote sessions are available. Note: John also edits College Essays.

I do not guarantee perfect scores, but I do guarantee that the test will become easier for you. You will learn how to save time so that you are not rushed. You will learn how to separate the answer choices that are meant to trick you, and those that are most often correct. There is a simple strategy that I have learned that is very effective. Please contact me about previous Parent/Student references or contacts. They are happy to speak briefly with you on the phone or via email if you so desire. I like to create a real, friendly relationship with my students and parents. Above everything else, really enjoy my job. We work hard in our sessions but never to forget to laugh and make it so that students don't tread our sessions. Some even admitted to enjoying them!

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.

SAT Reading

I recently graduated as a Dean Scholar from the University of Southern California, and scored a perfect 800 on the Critical Reading section. I have over 3 years of experience tutoring Critical Reading over Skype and in person. I have the strategy and the relevant vocabulary library to raise your score. Every single student has scored over 600 and have improved their score (average increase 100-200 points).

Writing

I have years of experience guiding and editing college application essays, as well as high school and college level essays. I also tutor writing skills for lower and middle school students. Writing skills are in essence unquantifiable, but if credibility of importance, I received the Outstanding English Student award in both middle and high school at a competitive private school, and scored a perfect 800 on the Critical Reading Section of the SAT.
