Catholic University of America (PhD)
I am a Harvard grad, currently working on a PhD in political theory at Catholic U. Prior to this I taught high-school math for 3 years while earning a masters degree in teaching. I've also taught several standardized tests for Kaplan, and so can offer you Kaplan knowledge, without the Kaplan price.
While I have tutored a variety of subjects over the years, my current focus is on LSAT and GRE tutoring.
My percentiles when taking the above exams were 99+ on the GRE (taken twice) and 97th on the LSAT.
*AVAILABILITY NOTE as of 8/29/13*
I will not be taking on new clients for regular tutoring during the fall semester of 2013. I will be available for strategy sessions (one or two meetings) with people who intend to self-study but would like to be given a program with recommendations for study materials, setting a schedule, and so on. I can also go over diagnostic or practice exams in this meeting.
I normally meet clients at the Catholic U. campus in Northeast DC. GRE/LSAT tutoring:

I met with Jan about twice a week for the five weeks prior to taking the LSAT exam, and it was worth it. I was able to raise my score from a 155 to a 168 using his methods. He was clearly knowledgeable on all three types of sections and specifically helped me with the logical reasoning problems and the games sections. Based on how I was progressing, he would help me plan additional study sessions that I could do on my own. It was great having such a reliable source of information, most practice test books do not explain the correct answers so I relied on him to help me figure out what I did wrong. He saw patterns in my mistakes and was able to help me actively target certain types of problems. He was very flexible when scheduling appointments, even last minute. Overall, he was a patient and excellent teacher and I very much recommend him if preparing for the LSAT exam.
Very nice and smart guy. I think I will learn a lot from him and I am looking forward to learning all I can.
Jan helped me prepare for my GRE exams a few months ago. In addition to having a vast array of knowledge on the subjects at hand and helpful tips on test taking in general, I believe that Jan worked with me at a very comfortable pace, assigning work and taking the time to go through it all. I would highly recommend this tutor for anyone preparing for a GRE or other standardized test.
Jan has been an effective tutor for me in preparation for my taking the GRE (Graduate Record Examination). Jan is very patient and he constructs each week's lesson based on building my skills and confidence. He commits to a set schedule of meetings and is intent on keeping my study momentum moving forward, so I can achieve success on the GRE. At 45yrs of age, I especially recommend utilizing Jan's service for GRE prep, due to his understanding of an older adult having to retrieve past math/verbal/reading comprehension skills to prepare for what is required to perform well on the GRE.
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.
