About Olivia

After graduating as a valedictorian from Foxcroft School, I earned a dual degree in International Relations and Economics from Johns Hopkins University. Over the last seven years, I have professionally taught thousands of students in both South Korea and the United States at various renowned teaching institutions, including my own test prep school in New Jersey. My husband and I recently moved from New York City to Michigan where I am looking to open a second test prep center. As an expert in SAT and ACT teaching, I have had the pleasure to help students realize their true potential by applying the exclusive techniques I developed while learning at one of the best schools in the world and teaching in a competitive, professional work environment.

SAT/ACT READING AND ENGLISH
My focus is to move away from an approach that merely instills student with superficial and fragmentary understanding of the SAT/ACT reading. Instead, I revolutionize students' analytical mindset through groundbreaking methodologies that fundamentally increase their reasoning ability and prepare them for all real College Board tests regardless of content unfamiliarity and difference in level of difficulty amongst the tests. This is what real test prep should be: 100% success rate for EVERY test.

SAT/ACT MATH
As a valedictorian at one of the most prestigious private high schools in America, I have completed 8 AP courses with a score of 4 and 5 in all of the national AP tests. Two of the AP tests I have taken with great success were AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC. I understand that fear of math itself is what prevents students from even trying to do well in math. With my easy-to-understand step by step explanations and test strategies, students will not only gain confidence in math but will also score high.

Time Management
Comprehending and solving all questions in the given time frame of the SAT/ACT is a challenging task, if not an impossible one. With my researched, tested and proven time management training, students will not only overcome the fear of reading under time pressure, but will also see an improvement in critical thinking, which ultimately leads to a dramatic increase in scores.

My focused and results-driven methodologies guarantee not only dramatically higher scores but also confidence and actual enjoyment in preparing for the SAT and ACTs.
