Bio

Hi there! I'm an engineer who graduated from MIT and I am passionate about education and helping hard-working students reach their full potential. I have several years of experience tutoring SAT and ACT, and I started teaching the GRE last year. (GRE tutoring is a somewhat new area for me, but my students thus far have increased their scores by as much as 32 points, so I think the methods I teach are working!)

Hi there! I'm an engineer who graduated from MIT and I am passionate about education and helping hard-working students reach their full potential. I have several years of experience tutoring SAT and ACT, and I started teaching the GRE last year. (GRE tutoring is a somewhat new area for me, but my students thus far have increased their scores by as much as 32 points, so I think the methods I teach are working!) I love to work with motivated students and have a track record for helping them not only to raise their scores significantly, but also to retain the information they've learned in the long run.

Math, Verbal, Essays, Reading, Science... I teach them all, and in the way that helps you understand them best. Every student is different, and I am here to help you find out what works for YOU so you can attain your very best score. Warning: I assign weekly homework! I do this because I have seen through experience that those who make the largest gains in their scores are the ones who spend 30 minutes a day learning the material rather than try to absorb it all at once.

Some people have asked me in the past what my test scores were... all my scores have been elite-level scores, suitable for the most competitive institutions in the country and the world. More important, however, is my proven ability to teach YOU how to achieve high scores as well.

Scoring well on the Math requires both knowledge and strategy. I will teach you both so you can get the CORRECT answers and get them FAST so you can answer more questions and get the very best score possible.

Test makers test the same exact grammatical rules in every single iteration of the SAT and ACT. Math whiz who hates English? Hate both English AND Math? The rules are actually quite straightforward, but your English teacher wants to confuse you and teaches the rules in a way that is more difficult to understand. I'll give you all the pointers you need for mastering English grammar.

There's no way around the SAT vocab if you want to score well on the test, but there ARE non-boring ways to remember the meanings of seemingly obscure words. I will teach you those methods. With my help you can learn these words so well that you'll use them in daily life.

Whether you're taking the paper or computer version of the GRE, I will help you master both the quantitative and verbal parts of the GRE. You'll have a chance to enhance your vocabulary, learn to think like the testmakers, and strategize your approach to getting the highest GRE score you can achieve.

Thanks for considering me as a possible tutor! Please feel free to contact me with your questions or to request tutoring. I look forward to learning more about your tutoring goals.
