Over twenty years' experience tutoring for the SAT, PSAT, SSAT, ACT, and New York State Regents Exams, as well as working with students on College Applications. References include former students who are now attending Yale, Georgetown University, George Washington University, Smith College, Washington University, NYU, as well as various law schools. I am known for 'doing whatever it takes' to get a student to learn, retain, and succeed on all necessary exams and applications, with intelligent and focused humor providing the general tone of our sessions. Typically, students request sessions continue long after their scheduled time. I am a many-times published author, with National Lampoon Magazine and The Writers' Journal among my credits.

For mathematics, I incorporate a wide range of 'tricks,' basics, and the test-taking techniques covered in all the commercial guides. One of my specialties is teaching the methods of success on the math sections for students who have always hated math. For the writing sections, I use my own blend of techniques I've developed over the years, including the main method to writing essays quickly -- emphasizing a method used by all professional writers I know, and yet which seems to elude most instructors of writing employed at the high school level. And so, I look forward to meeting you!

I have not only taught and tutored for the New York State regents exams, but I have been the Department Head who was in charge of grading regents exams and overseeing other teachers as they graded these exams. With over twenty years' experience teaching and tutoring students who were taking New York State regents exams, I have successfully worked with students from the remedial level to the honors level, as well as from students who had failed the exam prior to meeting with me to students who were studying material several years beyond the norm for their chronological age. Regardless of the age or level of the student, I used -- and continue to use -- teaching methodologies that combine techniques for visual learners, auditory learners, and kinesthetic learners, as I have found that although a student might be primarily one of these types, to some degree most students benefit from a blend of all three. I have also found that each student is unique, and after the first session I tailor each lesson to meet the needs of the student.

Perceptive, thoughtful, excellent in interacting with my son.

I am glad to have found Mitch; he quickly grasped my son's weaknesses and strength. His manner of working is extremely professional and systematic. He prepares carefully for each session, bringing his own materials with him, and has a clear plan. He blends a terrific sense of humor and an understanding for the mind of a teenager with experience in the subject matter.
