I am an experienced (3000+ hours) tutor certified in over 30 subjects. I'm a college graduate of Tufts University, Medford, MA and have passed my CBEST having worked with children for the past 15 years. I have taught in all environments in ratios of 1:1 to 8:1. Some examples have included home-schooling, tutoring part-time at Huntington Learning Center and teaching SAT Math and Geometry in classroom environments (Top Learning Center and Perfect Score Academy). I have taken SAT practice tests where I score a perfect 800 in math and 760 in verbal. My experience spans all sections of the ACT.

In addition to tutoring all sections of many standardized tests (ACT/SAT/GRE/ISEE/HSPT), I can assist with most school subjects including math (algebra/geometry), reading, writing, and biology. In addition to traditional subjects, I can also teach your child to read, refine their study skills and test-taking strategies.

I have a car, a clean driving record and passed a recent background check.

Spot On

Evan was able to hit the ground running with my 8th grade son. They connected right away and communicated well with each other. It was clear that Evan had a good command of the topics at hand.

Great SAT tutor who made a difference

Evan was a super tutor who made understanding tricky SAT Math problems easy. My daughter recently took the SAT after being tutored by Evan and made a huge improvement on the Math section compared to the previous test. Evan deserves a lot of credit for making this improvement happen. Thank you, Evan.

Great teacher

My son loves the first class. He said it’s the first time for the ISEE class he didn’t even realize 1 hour passed so quickly until he saw the time.

Fantastic intro session

My niece had an absolutely fantastic first session with Evan. As a soon to be second time SAT exam taker he took time to learn what her strengths and needs were and then focus on her individual prep needs . After reading his credentials and other parent reviews I had a feeling he was going to be an excellent tutor and he is!

Great SAT prep

My son enjoyed learning from Evan and through it was very helpful. He broke it down in an easy to understand format and gave follow up assignments for the next session.

Evan is Patient and definitely can work in a pinch!

Evan is working with my son who has high functioning autism. My son does not communicate well, if he does not understand, but Evan is figuring it out and my son is making progress. Thanks Evan!
