Hi and thanks for considering me as your GRE/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...

Hi and thanks for considering me as your GRE/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!

My GMAT tutoring is specifically designed to meet the stated objectives of the test. The GMAT wants us to combine information with logic and reasoning to find solutions to problems. So, I try to show you how to do just this. My instruction is therefore divided into three separate parts: The information, the logic and reasoning, and (perhaps most important of all) how to combine the information with the logic and reasoning. The information is the academic skills (math, verbal and writing) the GMAT expects us to know. Even though most students look at learning these skills as the main focus of their preparation, the reality is that this is only the starting point. The second part of my instruction focuses on the logical skills. Together, we will define these logical skills as a set of teachable general principles. These principles are practical and simple to understand. The third and final part of the instruction shows students how these principles can be easily applied to a wide range of academic concepts to solve problems. I have found that when you combine these three lessons, you can effectively understand exactly what each question is asking for and exactly how to approach the answer process.

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!

American History

I have a master's degree in American History from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL. My focus was in early American history from the colonial period, through to the onset of the Civil War (of course I have graduate-level expertise in all aspects and eras of American history). I can effectively tutor you in all areas of U.S. history, including AP U.S. history. Please contact me with more specific questions you may have about how I can help you in this subject.

Over the past 3 years, I have developed very simple and straight forward strategies to teach basic and advanced math concepts to students. One of the reasons that I am an effective tutor is that I am not a walking math book- it was hard for me to learn math the way math “experts” teach it. I believe a tutor or teacher needs to identify how to relate to their student and deliver the message in a way that the student will learn it. It seems many teachers, especially math teachers, only teach one way: as though everyone is a math expert. I realize that if this was the case, you would not need a tutor to begin with!

Very knowledgeable and patient.

Scott is super patient with me which makes me feel very comfortable. He doesn’t judge me if I don’t know the definition of a word or a a simple answer to a simple question. He’s also provides great techniques for the different GRE subjects, which has really been helping me. He breaks everything down and makes it a lot easier for me to understand.

Lyniece, 20 lessons with Scott

Excellent start!

Scott has helped laid the foundation for improving my score on the GMAT. I’m excited to learn and for future sessions!

Frank, 3 lessons with Scott

Direct and pinpoints weaknesses

My time with Scott was not wasted. He jumped straight to work, which is what I was wanting, and helped me identify my weaknesses so I can be a better student as I study for the GRE

Jacob, 3 lessons with Scott

excellent GRE prep

Scott has helped me develop strategies for improving timing, reviewing weak content areas, and has given practical tips on how to target practice and continue to improve. He has also shared valuable resources and videos to assist in my GRE study plan. I highly recommend his lessons for GRE prep.

Wonderful lesson!

Great lesson I love the way you explain everything. As we approach the date of the exam I feel more confident in the way Scott is assessing my weak points and plan a strategy to get better. Already seeing improvement on the mock exams from the first to the second. Feel really confident right now with the steps we are taking! Thank you Scott!

Karla, 15 lessons with Scott

Amazing!!!!

I had hit a wall studying on my own. Scott helped me get my scores where they need to be! I was hopeless before he came along! He puts things in layman terms so they are easily understood and he tailors each lesson to my individual needs! I am confident that I am going to crush my test tomorrow! Thank you Scott!!!!
