Bio

I've spent a year teaching in a local Sunday school, and about as long helping others prepare for their SAT exams. Throughout my preparation for my SAT exam, I found myself thinking "surely there's a better way" -- and there was.

I've spent a year teaching in a local Sunday school, and about as long helping others prepare for their SAT exams. Throughout my preparation for my SAT exam, I found myself thinking "surely there's a better way" -- and there was. My approach to the SAT is centered on a deep understanding of how the test-makers formulate their questions, and what they expect as answers.

I want to share my method with as many people as I can. I remember how stressful exams can be, and a methodical planned-out approach can ease that burden. Students deserve to have the confidence that comes from gradually discovering a systematic way to answer questions that doesn't rely on luck or flashes of inspiration. I firmly believe that every student from any background can and should shoot for the high 1500's.

I spent much of my high school years helping my friends and classmates through their math classes. I always felt that Math revolved around a few simple rules, and once you really figure those rules out, it's a simple as plugging everything in. These days, I'm an Engineering student at Cornell, and am reminded on a daily basis of how important the basics are.

I received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam, a 5 on both AP Physics C exams, and an 800 on the Math II SAT Subject Test.

I've always had a passion for Chemistry, throughout high school and college. I was able to convince the school's administration to sit the AP exam in my sophomore year, which let me spend the rest of my high school years creating a solid foundation for the chemistry courses I am currently taking in college.

I received a 5 on the AP Chemistry exam, and an 800 on the Chemistry SAT Subject Test.

The English section of the SAT is widely considered to be the trickiest. While Math can be boiled down to knowing a few important rules and applying them, reading comprehension is much more complicated. When I took the SAT, though, I knew I needed to get close to a perfect score to get into my dream school. I knew that taking the SAT too many times looked ba
