About Theresa

Dear Students,

I am an Ivy League educator who has been teaching and tutoring students for over 20 years. A former professor at Pace and Manhattanville Colleges, I have been an SAT/ACT/GMAT tutor , both in the NY area and at American International schools abroad. I have logged over 3500 hours of SAT/ACT tutoring, and have worked in corporate I.T. as well as education. My students are without exception successful - many hardworking students gain 220-375 points on the SAT, and up to 6 points on the ACT.

Why you could choose me as your tutor:
- Theresa is a leading expert in college test prep, having taught college prep classes in NYC and abroad. She is also a sought-after speaker on college essay tips and writing, a published writer, and served on the Board of an International School. She values families and knows what families seek in a good tutor.

What can you expect to gain from test prep?

Depending on the number of hours tutored, and the initial score range,
MEDIAN SAT/ACT POINT INCREASE
Test First Practice Score Pt. Increase # Tutoring Hours

SAT 1700-1740 220-275 30-40
SAT 1800-1840 190 - 210 16
ACT 28-30 4 20 – 30

What is my experience?
Theresa's experience includes over 20 years teaching in international schools, independant high schools in N.Y.C., and Westchester, and university adjunct.

Proven track record: Students have raised grades from C's to A's, and gained substantial points in SATs.,
Ninety-three percent of college essay students gain admittance to their top three schools
GMAT and GRE scores are raised with significant effort and 8+ hours of classes.

My background (Cornell and Columbia U.) is in International studies, I.T., systems design, psychology, and Essay Writing for college or graduate school, I have taught math 2-12, English 2-12, U.S./World History (7-12), and writing ESL-College. I teach students the mental rigor required for tests, and will offer you all the techniques you need to excel -- whether in ACT, AP exams, SAT, or GMAT.

College admissions: Polish your interview skills, display confidence, and learn to ask key questions at your college visits: After my essay workshops, students have been admitted to many fine colleges, including George Washington U., U. of Rochester, U. of Delaware, Fairfield University, Atlanta College of Art, U Conn, SUNY Binghamton, SUNY Albany, Cornell, Dartmouth, Franklin + Marshall, Columbia Teacher's College, and more.

I invite you to go to the head of the line in your your academic goals -- by working with a professional who has a proven track record of guiding and motivating students to success. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

GRE vocabulary word families taught.

SAT Math

I have taught SAT math for ten years and am now at an academy teaching sat/gre math. I love to explain regents problems to kids. Available after school and weekends.

Writing

I have been a Writing professor in NYC, Westchester, and at the U.N. in Austria. I love to instruct students in research and then writing essays. I have also helped dozens of students write successful college applications. I use positive psychology skills to glean the most of a student's background and strength. Students are always thrilled by their essays. I would love to help your student!

Super knowledgeable and precise, Theresa is an amazing tutor! — We hired her for our son who is a high school senior, trying to improve his last ACT score in two months. From the first conversation I had over phone, I was very impressed by her insightful approach. As soon as she left after the first lesson, my son said to me, "She is great!" She knows exactly what students need. We feel so lucky to have found her. ...
