About Abhi

I bring you breadth and depth of experience and content-area expertise. I've taught in classrooms in the US, Mexico and South Korea for over a decade, and have been a test-prep tutor since I was in high school. I helped design the TOEFL prep and teacher training curricula for East Asian industry-leader Chungdahm Learning and currently work as a consultant with Scholastic Achievement Partners delivering Common Core training to NYC teachers: I know what it takes to help students achieve. My own academic record is strong: with 99-plus percentile scores on the SAT, ACT and GRE and 5s on 8 AP exams, I turned down three Ivies to attend Tulane University on a full academic scholarship; I went on to be a NYC Teaching Fellow.

Experience translates to student success. I use a combination of cutting-edge diagnostics and a personalized, socratic approach to go beyond drilling-- to help you target your weaknesses and build your skills while getting the score you need. In the last 4 years, my students have averaged 150+ point increases on both sections of the SAT, 4+ point increases on all sections of the ACT, and 12+ point increases on both sections of the GRE. I work with students from the city's top schools (Horace Mann, Trinity, Friends, Riverdale, Dalton, Bronx Science, Stuyvesant, LaGuardia); my students have been admitted to the best high schools in the city and every one of the top 20 ranked colleges nationwide.

My own scores on the SAT, ACT and GRE Math tests were in the 99th percentile: I understand the concepts. As an experience curriculum designer, I also understand how to help you. I use diagnostic material to zero in on the areas where you need most work, and build a personalized practice curriculum to elevate your understanding. My goal is always to make sure you acquire the confidence and ability to succeed on the test, and the analytic skills to keep growing well beyond test day.

Personable, professional, knowledgable. I'm new to Wyzant, but I've had great success working with hundreds of students from New York's top schools. Contact me for a free consultation to find out how I can help you.
