About James

I am a double Ivy League graduate (with degrees from Yale and Columbia) offering tutoring in a variety of areas. I am especially strong in language (reading, writing, grammar, organization, essays), SAT and ACT preparation, and LSAT preparation. For the last five years I have been an employee of a Connecticut-based tutoring and SAT preparation company, and I have worked with children and adults through piano lessons as an independent teacher for the last ten years.

I spend time with students to make sure they understand the material. I am friendly, but will work hard to ensure that the student learns the material.

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.

Bar Exam

I passed the New York Bar Exam on the first try in 2008, with a Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) score of 151.4, significantly over the average scaled score of 140. I have special flashcards and other study methods designed for retaining the information on the bar exam.

Piano

I have played in numerous performances nationally and internationally, including at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, in Israel, and in the Republic of Georgia. I have studied for nearly 30 years, since age six, with professors from the Juilliard School, the Manhattan School of Music, Yale, and the Aspen Music Festival. I have over 10 years of teaching experience, including all ages, from four to fifty.

Great Educational Specialist — The main goal of my lessons was improving my TOEFL score. I had difficulties with the Speaking and Writing sections, so we were focused on these two issues. What I liked the most about James is that he was very attentive; he was attentive to my goals and to my errors. He paid particular attention to my habits that led to my mistakes and suggested the ways to avoid them. Our lessons were very u ...
