Bio

"Phenomenal!"

With my scores of 1580 SAT and 35 ACT, and with my experience of helping students learn to improve their scores to reach near-perfection, I am well prepared to help your students reach their test prep goals. Content mastery, test-taking strategies, and physical training are the keys.

"Phenomenal!"

With my scores of 1580 SAT and 35 ACT, and with my experience of helping students learn to improve their scores to reach near-perfection, I am well prepared to help your students reach their test prep goals. Content mastery, test-taking strategies, and physical training are the keys.

Save time and money: students often reach out to me only after they have already tried other services. Although the improvement attributed to most tutoring services average only 3 points on ACT (sources: ACT and tutoring company advertisements), my students' average increase is more than 8 points.

Moreover, preparing for the ACT and SAT improves in-class performance. Mastering these test-taking skills also prepares students for effective learning.

Taking the SAT or ACT is like playing a tennis match: we must understand the game; recognize the possible challenges and be prepared with a toolkit of strategies; and be physically & mentally prepared to perform in top form, on the day. A symphony analogy also applies. Students must first learn to play the piece, then achieve mastery; finally, during performance, they must demonstrate fluency.

My approach to raising ACT and SAT scores is to address three areas: content; strategies; and top-form training. By first understanding your student's current needs and goals, I can recommend and coach strategies tailored for your student.

Here's what others have said about me:
* You are the one person I can thank for helping me win my $40,000 scholarship
* Was great at helping me understand difficult concepts
* Made it easy to understand
* Made it fun
* Helped me understand why this subject is important
* I love her!

I treat our mutual investment with the respect it deserves. Preparing for a standardized test involves a significant investment of time and resources by the student and family -- and should yield measurable results.

As your ACT / SAT tutor, I take this responsibility very seriously. I arrive prepared for every session, and I provide a session summary afterwards to ensure visibility and mutual accountability. Homework will consist of exercises targeted for your student and may include online interactives, exercises, and other materials.

An experienced tutor and teacher, I also have experience designing curricula for K-12, college, and professionals. I am also an experienced systems engineer and project manager; and I am a physics teacher (Georgia).

With my understanding of current research and best practices, I am fortunate to bring the context and insight to help you / your student "get" the point, and build accuracy and speed.

Lee is a Godsend, an asset in all subject areas to students

Lee is very thorough, detail oriented, supportive, patient and kind. I cannot put into words how awesome my daughter's lessons have been with Lee and how beneficial for my daughter. She takes time to genuinely help the student grasp the material. She works with my daughter in multiple subject area. We originally contacted her for struggles in Pre-Calculus after the first lesson my daughters first quiz was a 100 and her outlook was better than it had been in weeks. She continues to work with Lee in multiple areas and we are very thankful to have been so blessed to have Lee in my daughter's corner. She looks forward to her time with Lee and is feels relief and confidence in the subject material after each lesson. I cannot endorse Lee enough, truly grateful for her. If you are a concerned parent with a struggling student I highly recommend Lee.

Lee saved a (math) life

Lee did an excellent job explaining very difficult concepts. She was very patient, engaging, encouraging, and professional. Great communication skills. Wish I'd found her sooner- so many tears could have been saved.

Very Good Tutor

Lee, is very good at what she does as a tutor. My son is learning new concepts from Lee that will help him in retaking the SAT. He has met with her for approximately 4 lessons and he is feeling more confident about taking the test again in May. We recommend Lee as a tutor.

Kathleen, 6 lessons with Lindsey

Great lesson!!!

Caitlin really enjoyed her time with Ms Lee & Learned quite a bit on The first session. Looking forward to future lessons with Lee!

Laura, 3 lessons with Lindsey

Definitely knowledgeable and patient tutor.

We are working on ACT Test prep. Mrs. Lee made me fell at ease with the test information. We worked well together on both specific problems and overall test strategies. Looking forward to improving on the up coming test.

George, 2 lessons with Lindsey

Excellent teacher with great communication skills and wonderful personality

Lee has in depth understanding on AP Physics and she's a passionate teacher. She communicated very well with my teenage son, covered the topics thoroughly in a short time, and she's a great coach on test taking skills. We're extremely grateful for her help and we'll definitely go back to her whenever my son needs help on Physics or other subjects.
