About Cameron Domenico

An outstanding score on the SAT or ACT is a crucial aspect of every successful application to America’s elite colleges and universities. And nothing is a better predictor of outstanding scores on the SAT than individualized preparation under the guidance of an effective tutor — a tutor who exemplifies the academic excellence to which his or her students aspire.

I was valedictorian of my high school graduating class and scored a 2400 on the SAT on my first attempt. I graduated summa cum laude and with highest departmental honors from Harvard College in 2011. In 2013, I completed an MPhil with Distinction at the University of Oxford, where I was awarded a prestigious Clarendon Scholarship (reserved for applicants who represent the elite academic candidates of their generation). I am currently pursuing a PhD in philosophy, which I plan to complete in 2019.

Academic excellence, however, is not enough. Effective tutoring also requires the ability to communicate complex ideas. I have a distinguished record in this area, as well. In high school, I was the California state champion in Student Congress, a form of policy-centered debate. At Harvard, I worked extensively with Harvard Model Congress, a government simulation for high school students. I also tutored my Harvard classmates in mathematics. In addition, I was an official tutor for the secondary school program at Harvard Summer School, where I received the best overall rating of all the tutors on a survey of tutee satisfaction.

I am a strong believer in customization. In order to best serve the unique needs of my clients, I begin each tutoring course with a simulated full-length SAT examination and prepare a detailed report on the student’s strengths and weaknesses. This report then serves as the basis for a curriculum tailored to address the particular needs of that student.

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.

College Counseling

I have been admitted to both Harvard and Oxford (where I received a prestigious Clarendon scholarship), among many other elite colleges and universities. Moreover, I have been an interviewer for Harvard College for the past two admissions seasons. I have a deep understanding of the kinds of qualifications necessary for admission to the most elite universities in the English-speaking world.

Public Speaking

I have a distinguished record in speech and debate. In high school, I was the California state champion in Student Congress, a form of policy-centered debate. I also placed 7th at the national tournament. At Harvard, I worked extensively with Harvard Model Congress, a government simulation for high school students, which involved coaching them in the ability to communicate complex ideas. I am comfortable coaching all kinds of public speaking, from dramatic monologues to policy debate.

SAT Math

In high school, I scored a perfect 800 on the SAT Mathematics section on my first attempt. I have continued to develop my mathematical expertise during my time as an undergraduate at Harvard and my graduate studies. My current research interests include probability theory and mathematical theories of rational choice.

SAT Reading

In high school, I scored a perfect 800 on the SAT Critical Reading section on my first attempt. Since then, I have earned degrees from both Harvard and Oxford. My continued success as a student requires mastery of the kind of active, critical reading tested on the SAT, and I am uniquely positioned to pass that mastery along to my students.

SAT Writing

In high school, I scored a perfect 800 on the SAT Writing section on my first attempt. My subsequent study of philosophy at Harvard and Oxford has taught me to write clearly and effectively and given me a detailed understanding of English grammar.
