About Nathan

I have helped countless college, law school, grad school, and business school students get into the schools of their dreams.

My method is extremely simple and consists of doing practice tests slowly and methodically to learn how to get a perfect score BEFORE stressing about the time limit. This makes studying a lot less painful and turns getting a 99th percentile score into a fun and organic process.

I have a published study guide which I give to all of my students for free, including customized study schedules and a progress chart, so all of my students know exactly what to do and when. My method has worked wonders for hundreds of students - as long as they put the study time in.

We focus on weak areas in order to see very quick improvement. I explain every single difficult question to my students so that they understand fully and clearly why their answer was wrong and know exactly how to ace that type of question next time. The goal is that before moving onto the next practice test, the student is at the point that he/she would confidently get perfect on the current practice if taken again. This method guarantees significant and meaningful improvement.

I teach most of my students ONLINE using a virtual whiteboard - no advanced software is needed for this, and in my experience it works just as well (if not better) than being in the same room for various reasons. In-person lessons are of course also a great option.

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.

Common Core

Many of my students have greatly improved their grades as a result of my tutelage, and as such have subsequently had better school/career options. I've taught mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA) extensively for a number of years. I've helped many students understand concepts they previously found confusing.

Ear Training

Having studied at Berklee College of Music, I took the most advanced ear training classes, including Advanced Ear Training, Atonal Solfege 1, and Atonal Solfege 2. I teach private instrumental lessons and always emphasize ear training as an important tool for musical improvement. My methods are to work on each interval individually and help to facilitate a vivid image of that interval in the student's memory, and eventually translate that ability into longer musical phrases and pieces.

General Music

I graduated with two degrees from Berklee College of Music, in Performance as well as Film Scoring. My education includes expansive knowledge in music theory spanning a wide variety of styles and genres, as well as the study of composing and orchestrating for all sorts of different instrumentations. I have experience teaching on a few different instruments, including saxophone and piano.

GMAT

My GMAT score, a near perfect score of 760 for quant and verbal, was in the 99th percentile. This is largely due to my extremely intuitive methods, which I teach to all of my students. I have helped many students get into the schools of their dreams.

GRE

My GRE score, near perfect, was in the 99th percentile for both verbal and quantitative. This is largely due to my extremely simple and effective practice methods, which I teach to all of my students. I have helped many students get into the schools of their dreams.

Hebrew

I have a formal Hebrew/Jewish education and have worked professionally as a Torah reader at a plethora of synagogues in the New York area as well as Boston and Canada, including experience teaching Hebrew/bar mitzvah lessons. I spent one year studying classes in Hebrew at the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary of Yeshiva University in New York.

LSAT

My LSAT scores have ranged from 174 to 180, largely due to my extremely simple and effective practice methods, which I teach to all of my students. I have helped countless students to get into the law schools of their dreams.

Macintosh

I own a Mac and work with it for hours every day. Part of my employment is producing music for videos and the like, which involves the most advanced of techniques and shortcuts on the Macintosh platform. My degrees from Berklee had a huge technological component which involved getting to know the Macintosh computer inside-out, in order to facilitate quick and efficient work no matter what the task.

Music Theory

I studied at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated with two degrees, in performance and film scoring respectively. Additionally I have over a decade of professional experience as a musician and composer in the United States and Canada.

Poker

I was drawn towards learning poker a number of years ago when I began playing recreationally with friends, and started noticing that even though a lot of luck was involved, very often it was the same people winning and the same people losing. I wanted to pinpoint exactly why I seemed to be beating my friends so often, so that I could institutionalize whatever it was into my game, and discover more ways to exploit the weaknesses of other poker players. I began to watch and study poker on TV and the internet, and read books detailing strategic conventions and ideas. This was when I realized just how multi-faceted of a game poker is - it involves so much of memory, rational thought, discipline, and mathematical understanding, but at the same time, a great deal of simple instinct. Then, the experience of playing hundreds of thousands of hands online was what engrained the instinct in me of what to do with any particular hand in any particular situation, since I had been faced with every situation before and tried different strategies, my memory always noting the one that worked the most often. This knowledge is easily teachable to others in much less time than it took for me to assemble the knowledge and experience.

Regents

I have extensive experience teaching subjects like algebra, geometry, English. I've helped countless students raise their scores significantly on tests such as the Regents, SAT, GRE, and GMAT. My simple and intuitive methods are very practical for helping students achieving near perfect scores.

SAT Math

My SAT score (old score) was 2330, and my math score was a perfect 800. My goal with students is to break every difficult question into several very simple steps that are easy and natural to figure out. I have gotten many students into the schools of their dreams.

SAT Reading

My SAT score was 2330, and my reading score was a perfect 800. I have been teaching test preparation for a number of years, and have many devised and proven techniques for helping students reach mastery of reading comprehension. I have gotten many students into the schools of their dreams.

SAT Writing

My SAT score was 2330, and my writing score was 730 (98th percentile). I have done a lot of freelance English editing, and have been teaching test preparation for a number of years. My goal with students is to break every difficult question into several very simple steps that are easy and natural to figure out. I have gotten many students into the schools of their dreams.

Saxophone

My degree in Performance from Berklee College of Music was specializing in the saxophone. I have studied with some of the greatest saxophonists of this generation, and have performed with a wealth of ensembles worldwide. I have a lot of experience tutoring and coaching saxophonists at every level.
