Bio

I love my job. When I do my job really well my students head off to college not only with higher scores on their tests but also scholarship money. I spent 5 years teaching SAT and ACT classes full-time for The Princeton Review and the last 17 years tutoring both tests in Boulder, CO. I can honestly say that I have thousands of hours of experience teaching just SAT and ACT prep. I work very hard so that my students can earn the highest scores and the most scholarship money.

I love my job. When I do my job really well my students head off to college not only with higher scores on their tests but also scholarship money. I spent 5 years teaching SAT and ACT classes full-time for The Princeton Review and the last 17 years tutoring both tests in Boulder, CO. I can honestly say that I have thousands of hours of experience teaching just SAT and ACT prep. I work very hard so that my students can earn the highest scores and the most scholarship money. I have personally gone through all of the real SAT's and ACT's that have been released since 2003. I have gained a firm sense of the content, structure and timing of each test. I have already helped hundreds of students raise their scores. I will gladly share what I've learned so that you can raise your scores too. Most of my students are able to make significant score improvements with just one or two sessions focused on their biggest weaknesses. However, I see the largest gains from students who also spend a little extra time to fully capitalize on their strengths. As a student at CU Boulder I was an editor for the Honors History Journal for 2 years and also part of the History Department's undergraduate scholarship program in which I read and evaluated scholarship application essays. I really enjoy helping students with their application essays and scholarship essays as well. I am always willing to answer any other questions or provide additional references from local students and parents.

I have helped to de-mystify the Science section for literally hundreds of students. The most important thing to remember is that it is not really a science test at all, but actually a test of how well you read charts and graphs. If you get really good at finding the proper clues in the questions the answers become much easier to find. I would be happy to give you some pointers!

Knowleadgeable and patient tutor

Michael gives Regina homework lessons, to help her improve. They review the homework assigned during tutoring and go onto the next lesson. Regina is really enjoying working with Michael and feels she will be ready for ACT in no time.
