About Kjell Andreas

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with Bachelor's degrees in biology and English and a minor in Spanish. Between classes I volunteered as a tutor at some local elementary and high schools, where I taught primarily reading, writing, and math and found that I thoroughly enjoyed it: I enjoy simplifying complex concepts and assisting students in subjects with which I myself have struggled. And this proves true of the SAT.

The SAT has undergone substantial revisions since its introduction in the 1920's, but one thing has remained unchanged: it's a tricky test. It's designed to frustrate and confuse and I quickly found that I was by no means a natural at standardized tests when I took it in 2009 (when it was scored on the 2400 scale). Nonetheless, after dedicated studying and preparation, I managed to score in the 99th percentile. I want to help my students do the same, to transform the SAT into something that supplements, instead of detracts from, the college application.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

SAT Writing

At Penn, I received my Bachelor's degree in English. I opted not to specialize in a specific genre or literary period; instead, I broadened my focus, which included courses on postcolonial literature, Victorian-era works, and Greek mythology. The English degree not only refined my ability to analyze works of literature, but also sharpened my writing, including for the SAT.
