About Terri

You have important goals for your education. I can help you get the test score you need to accomplish your goals. I scored a perfect 800 on the SAT Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing tests, and I've been helping students improve their scores for over ten years.

I love tutoring, and I make each lesson dynamic, engaging, and enjoyable. I've worked with students of many different backgrounds, including non-native English speakers and students with learning disabilities. I'm able to explain both the most basic concepts and the most challenging questions with clarity, and I tailor my instruction to each student's personal learning style. Many students have told me that they never really understood math until they learned it from me. I'm committed to helping my students improve, and I'm always easy to reach by phone or by email with any questions that pop up in between lessons.

Imagine the doors you can unlock with a higher test score. My students have been admitted to prestigious schools--including Harvard, Columbia, Georgetown, and NYU. Get in touch with me through WyzAnt and I'll provide you with an assessment of your current concept mastery and a personalized study plan that will help you meet your goals for the SAT. I look forward to helping you ace the test and get admitted to the college of your choice.

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.
