About Scott

Hi and thanks for considering me as your GRE or GMAT tutor.

For each of these tests, I have been in your shoes and so I know what it means to struggle with the material and to be lost as to how to approach the prep. I know how frustrating it can be when the websites and prep books are just not enough. What many tutors just do not get is that for these tests, the student does not need a teacher-like presentation of the material, the student needs to know exactly what to do to prep for these altogether unique tests.

I get it, though. My GRE and GMAT prep tutoring is not just my experience and academic credentials (I got 'em both, though), or even how well I know the material. It's much more about my understanding what YOU need to do, how you need to do it and my ability to figure out what is holding you back. It's also about communicating the same concept in any number of ways, so every student can get it. This is what good tutoring is all about.

I totally get it...and I get you, remember, I've been there myself.

Let's try a session, and get you the help you need!

- David, Gaithersburg, MD on 4/6/13
Scott replied on 4/13/2013

I certainly appreciate David’s frustration at his son having to retake the GRE, but his comments do not accurately reflect my experience with his son.

David’s son had done absolutely no preparation when he contacted me a few days prior to his test. After working together for only 4 days, he achieved a decent score on the test, especially given the circumstances. Right before his first test, David’s son told me that he had already scheduled a re-test and that he would call me to resume lessons. We did eventually resume lessons, but we only met for 8 hours in a 2 month span, not exactly the 2-3 times a week like Dad said. I’m also not as sure as Dad that David put in the necessary work. He canceled multiple sessions, and in every session ‘confessed’ that he had not studied vocabulary words or learned key math concepts, like special right triangles. Not surprisingly, he scored the same on his re-test as he did on his first test.

My program is not about ‘methods’. I help students learn the skills and logic they need, and I help students develop a structured plan for working on their own, when they are not meeting with me. My program works great for all students, no matter what level they are starting at, so long as the student is willing to put in the work.

Jordan worked hard. A bank manager by day, he put in 'overtime' in his GMAT prep early in the mornings, late at night and throughout the weekends. It paid off though, he was accepted into the MBA program at the University of Florida!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I remember about 5 years ago when I was looking for a GRE tutor. The first tutor I used had an Ivy League degree and the second tutor had a PhD in Math. I couldn’t understand a word either of them said to me. You see, they were total geniuses, and I’m not. They couldn’t speak my language.

Next, I turned to the prep books. I was amazed at how easy they made everything seem…until I realized they wrote the questions they were telling us how to answer. Then I understood why they always said stuff like “This is a good question for plugging in numbers, and the number 7 works really well here…”

My approach to tutoring for the GRE is much simpler: First, here are the “A, B, Cs” and “1, 2, 3s” we need to know and here is how we are going to learn them. Second, here is how we de-code GRE questions to make sense of them. Third, practice, practice, practice…

I give every GRE student a personalized plan for GRE success and then I help the student execute the plan. With an organized and sensible prep plan, EVERY student can score well on the GRE…including you.

Please take the GRE seriously, because your score really does matter. Grad school admission is ultra-competitive and it is the key to you fulfilling your academic and professional dreams. If you are ready to work, I am ready to help you reach your dreams!

Excellent tutor with high expectations — I worked with Scott for about 5 months and was very happy with the results. He is extremely knowledgable and was absolutely critical at helping me achieve the score I wanted. Scott has VERY high expectations of his students. As long as you put in the work, Scott's expertise will help you polish your skills and you'll see your score improve. It was a pleasure working with him. Highly recom ...
