About Ralph

Hello. I am a Connecticut native having passed through the Fairfield public school system and attending Hopkins School for high school. I am a graduate of Brown University with a degree in Philosophy as well as a graduate of Fordham University Law School. I have spent most of my professional life working in the educational publishing world and have created and edited dozens of books on reading, writing, and math. I am an easy-going guy and I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping kids succeed academically. I'd love to help you or your son or daughter excel in school or on standardized testing.

Having majored in Philosophy and receiving my J.D., my formal education has honed my reading comprehension, reasoning, and writing skills. As a professional editor, I have further developed my sense of what makes writing effective and powerful. I am particularly adept at academic writing and I know what teachers and test graders look for in assessing written responses. I can pass along what I've learned to advance my student's abilities.

I'd love to help you or your child, so please don't hesitate to contact me!

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.

Logic

As a Philosophy major at Brown University, I passed a rigorous formal logic class. I also studied logic and techniques for solving logic problems when studying for the LSAT, on which I scored a 168. I am familiar with formal logic as well as logical problem types found on standardized tests.
