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.

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.

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.

Sports/Recreation

Poker

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.

Very personable and understanding

I was looking for a one-time session and I appreciated that Nathan was not aggressive in trying to sell me more, but rather was focused on listening to where I was at and what I should do in the future on my own.

Nathan is very adept at tutoring over Skype. He shared some "proprietary methods" for tackling logic games that once I master will help me a great deal in any type of LG question
