Bio

Hi!

Firstly: If you are in need of tutoring, but cannot afford the regular test prep prices, please reach out to me. I will work with you.

To be brief, what sets me apart as a tutor is that I have been a high school teacher, as well as a college mental health counselor. I have a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education and English and a master's in Adolescent Psychology with an emphasis in Positive Youth Development - both from Boston College.

Hi!

Firstly: If you are in need of tutoring, but cannot afford the regular test prep prices, please reach out to me. I will work with you.

To be brief, what sets me apart as a tutor is that I have been a high school teacher, as well as a college mental health counselor. I have a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education and English and a master's in Adolescent Psychology with an emphasis in Positive Youth Development - both from Boston College.

The SAT and ACT are puzzles. They are not tests. There are ways to solve the material that you "don't know" if you know how to get around it. It sounds too good to be true, but I feel that I have shown that in my results. Feel free to take a look. To give you an example, what do you read first on math? Most read the questions first. I find that to be wrong from my 12 years of experience teaching the test. Read answers first. It allows for targeted math practice and elimination. This increases the amount of acetylcholine and dopamine in the brain by allowing for short term rewards and activated active reading. By combining psychology, neurochemistry, and quality teaching, I find that I am better able to support the whole student in improving their ACT or SAT score - fast.

In addition to SAT and ACT prep, I have taught English in South Africa, Ecuador, Ireland, Turkey, and the United States. My travels and meetings with people of all kinds have given me an appreciation for differences in the classroom.

I tutor with my tablet, which allows for mutual screen sharing and for me to write on the test to provide an "in-person" experience. In addition, I create a personalized drive with drills, strategies, and practice tests for each student that I tutor after analyzing areas of growth.

If you would like to learn more about my tutoring style, feel free to reach out however you like! It is a daunting decision to pick a reliable tutor. If I were a parent or student, I feel I would want that option as well.

Hope to learn with you soon!

Be Well,
Adam

I have tutored the SAT writing portion for 13 years now. I know what the test is looking for both within the content presented and the test-taking strategies needed to ace the test.

Adam is a gem !

I hired Adam to help my son prep for his ACT and I am glad I found him . He has a great way of connecting with my son and harnessing the best out of him. We have had 2 sessions with Adam and I definitely plan to continue using his services.

Geraldine, 13 lessons with Adam

Amazingly knowledgeable and encouraging tutor

My daughter did not start working with Adam until very close to the test date but Adam helped her with strategies and encouraged her to continue to strive to reach her potential. He is a pleasure to work with and so helpful. She enjoyed working with himneach and every lesson. We highly recommend him!

LORI, 14 lessons with Adam

Excellent Approach to ACT/SAT Tutoring. Would Highly Recommend

Adam has been tutoring Jordan in ALL areas of SAT and ACT prep for about 3 weeks now and I really wish had hired him 2 years ago! He is very experienced and was able to quickly assess Jordan’s skills, identify his areas of weakness and tailor his lessons to meet Jordan’s needs. Jordan is learning a lot of great problem-solving techniques that will no doubt help him a lot in the exams. We plan to continue to work with Adam over the summer to prepare for the ACT in August as Jordan is very comfortable with him and is learning a lot. Adam is also very flexible and is willing to adjust his schedule to meet your needs. I would highly recommend him as it is rare to find a tutor with all the skills he possesses

Winsome, 20 lessons with Adam

Knowledgeable, friendly, patient, reliable tutor.

Adam has been helping my son with SAT English prep and has been a huge help. He has bolstered my son’s confidence and given him guidance for taking the test and for figuring out his strengths and weaknesses. We plan to continue to use Adam to help my son prepare and would recommend him to others.

Mary, 9 lessons with Adam

My child's SAT performance and confidence has improved since being tutored by Adam.

Adam has been helping my daughter prepare for the SAT. In a short period of time, Adam's tutoring, combined with my daughter's effort, has shown material improvement in her results. She enjoys working with Adam, and has shown more interest in working harder. I highly recommend Adam as an SAT tutor, for all sections of the test.

Knowledgeable tutor!

Adam gave many different types of questions, and went over them. It was very helpful for my son to see what type of questions they were, and learn how to solve them. My son was very engaged in his lesson.

Accommodating, low pressure and patient tutor

Adam helped my son Tommy with preparing for his ACT test and Adam was very accommodating and patient with us. He had sample tests and homework which has helped my sons confidence immensely. My son Tommy very much enjoyed working with Adam. Adam provides a very low pressure lessons with a high volume of information. He has been teaching my son how to handle his stress before taking the test and how to decipher each and every question on the test quickly and efficiently.
