I am a finance and engineering professional that will help high school students achieve their full potential on college entry exams. Preparing for these test can be a daunting hurdle for many students. I find that teenagers generally know more than they think they know; the challenge is showing what they can do on a mind-numbing four-hour test on a Saturday morning. Most high school students have very busy schedules, so I always try to tailor tutoring and test practice in areas where the student will achieve that greatest impact.
The one-size-fits-all concept from the big test prep companies tends to bore the students in the areas where they excel and move too quickly in the areas where individuals need more instruction and practice. For SAT and ACT test prep, I like to give a lot practice tests and then use the results to hone the weaker skills and work on test taking strategies. In addition to college admissions test prep, I also have a strong background in mathematics, physics and statistics and can tutor in these subjects.
I have been helping high school students prepare for the SAT and ACT for over six years.

Great direction and guidance
Steven really gave my son clear direction and guidance on how to take his very good SAT scores and bring them to the next level. The lessons were focused on the writing and reading sections. In fact he ended up with a perfect score in Critical Reading and brought his writing score up 70 points. This was with only 4 lessons and was clearly attributed to the very pointed lessons and reviewing on where my son was missing some key elements from previous SAT's. Very pleased with the lessons and the outcome.Kim, 4 lessons with Steven

Steven is reliable, relatable, extremely knowledgeable and has the credentials to back it all up.
Steven helped teenage siblings, high school juniors, prepare for both the ACT and SAT. He worked with them individually, and as a pair. They both felt better prepared for taking these standardized tests, more so than from a school-based prep class.Sallie, 3 lessons with Steven

Good first experience on short notice
We were referred to the site by a friend and did our research for tutors who specialize in the ACT. We were able to secure Steven on short notice and he was local and available. We had a very limited amount of time before the ACT for Steven to work with our child and in the end their ACT points went up and we were all very happy with the experience. We would utilize Steven again as it turned out to be a positive experience.Barbara, 5 lessons with Steven
