When I was in high school I worked during the summer as a part-time receptionist at a seasonal medical office. One of the other receptionists was studying to take her LSAT and kept some of her preparation books in the desk. I was bored one day and decided to look through them. Before I knew it, I was doing the Logical Reasoning questions for fun anytime there was a lull in patients.

When I was in high school I worked during the summer as a part-time receptionist at a seasonal medical office. One of the other receptionists was studying to take her LSAT and kept some of her preparation books in the desk. I was bored one day and decided to look through them. Before I knew it, I was doing the Logical Reasoning questions for fun anytime there was a lull in patients. I truly enjoy taking standardized tests and have done well on the SAT (Verbal: 610, Math: 780), GRE (Verbal: 720, Quantitative: 780, Analytical: 800) and LSAT (169).
I am a certified teacher in New Jersey, where I taught mathematics for almost ten years. I have also worked in New Jersey as an in-home tutor for over fifteen years for middle- and high-school age children. Since I enjoy taking standardized tests, I started by working with students to improve their SAT scores. Over the past ten years, I expanded to working with students who needed a little more help with various school subjects or help preparing for midterm and final exams.
Even though I am now the Mathematics Coordinator at a private school in NYC, I continue to tutor because I love to learn. In fact, several years ago I went back to school and earned my M.S. in Mathematics Learning and Teaching. During tutoring sessions I work to motivate the students to become life-long learners also. I believe that excitement is contagious and many of the students that I have taught and tutored have improved both their understanding and their scores or grades.
