Bio

I am an enthusiastic teacher who believes that the best learning occurs when the you engaged and having fun. At the same time, I expect you to work hard and show the same dedication to your goals as I do. The trick is, as with all great learning, that you won't realize how hard you have been working during your improvement because it won't feel like "work."

I am an enthusiastic teacher who believes that the best learning occurs when the you engaged and having fun. At the same time, I expect you to work hard and show the same dedication to your goals as I do. The trick is, as with all great learning, that you won't realize how hard you have been working during your improvement because it won't feel like "work."

I graduated summa cum laude from Boston University (BA English) and then obtained a Master's in Education from Harvard University. Over the past seventeen years, I have had the pleasure of helping thousands of students achieve their standardized test goals, and I'm proud to have had "graduates" achieve acceptance to all of the top 50 universities in the United States.

Each course is designed with the student's strengths and weaknesses in mind, from which I will provide a unique curriculum and individualized practice material. The focus of this curriculum is to challenge the student and, as soon as the student has achieved a new level, to then again raise the bar. This is also achieved through homework, which is assigned after each lesson.

I look forward to teaching and learning with you!

I have been helping both American and international students apply to universities for 13 years. I have counseled them on university choice and guided them through the application process. My focus is to ensure that each student can tell their complete story, in their own words, through every application. Furthermore, I am obsessed with ensuring that every word of every application is perfect and uniquely tailored to each specific university. During my career, I have helped students gain admission to all of the top 50 universities in the US (as ranked by US News & World Report 2018).

Paul taught me how to write a concise essay more beautifully for SAT. He also taught me how to make choices for reading and writing questions I am weak at.
