For more than 20 years, I have successfully helped students, across the country, dramatically improve their test scores. What makes me an effective teacher is my consistent ability to help my students achieve their target scores or improvements.

My teaching method is custom-built around you.
Lessons are adapted to your particular learning style.
I will help you to strengthen your weaknesses and master time-saving shortcuts to enable you to earn your highest score possible.

I eliminate or lessen the "time pressure" aspect of tests by teaching you how to work smarter. You will learn how to focus on a step-by-step strategy for each question type, instead of on the clock. Working smarter through a mechanical strategy will allow you to finish the test, with more correct answers, and without the usual stress and nerves.

You will increase your confidence level and significantly improve your scores.
I am extremely patient and supportive. I understand the crippling fear of failing the test and know how to refocus that energy into selecting correct responses.
My students typically enjoy a large increase in their scores.
We will work out a specific plan to obtain your target score and then reach beyond it to provide a comfortable safety net.

In addition to helping you improve your test scores, upon request; I will review your essays and provide constructive feedback.

I also offer tutoring on successful approaches to improve your mastery of grammar, phonics, reading, math through pre-algebra, critical thinking, logical reasoning, time management, study and organization skills, and essay writing.
