I am an SAT and writing tutor with three years of experience immersed in both instruction and curriculum development. As a former Kaplan SAT/ACT Tutor with an SAT score in the 99th percentile (2250 total w/ 800 in Critical Reading), I have spent hundreds of hours familiarizing myself with dozens of real SAT tests and SAT format-specific strategies. I have been working with student on the NEW SAT format since August 2016, and have a developed a strong command of the new test structure. While a tutor, and later general manager, at a university admissions consulting company in Cairo, Egypt, I played a leading role developing SAT curricula for a variety of skill levels. Over time, I have have had the pleasure of regularly helping students improve their scores by 100 points per section.
Though I have played a number of roles as an educator, I take a special pleasure in prepping students for the SAT. The SAT is a fundamentally understandable test with a limited number of patterns and question types that can be mastered with practice. The formulaic nature of the test allows me the privilege and joy of being able to reveal a manageable and orderly structure to students who have previously seen only a confusing mess of problems.
I prepare extensively for my lessons, and I ask my students to put in work on their own also. I believe individual practice is the best way to maximize the benefit from the time I spend together with the student. During SAT prep lessons, I balance content review with test specific strategies, and, because it is ultimately all about your score, I provide regular assessments.
I am happy to offer a free one-hour consultation and evaluation for SAT students. Get in touch with any additional questions and I look forward to helping you achieve the score you want or write a remarkable essay!
The NEW SAT:
The SAT was significantly changed starting with students applying to enter college in Fall 2017. I have extensively researched the new format and will continue to stay on top of new information as it emerges. I am really excited to continue making sure my students are specifically prepared for the unique nature of the test in its redesigned format.

Noah was my tutor for about 6 months and helped me through 2 SATs. He was extremely patient with me and knew exactly how to work with my strengths and weakness. If I had a problem, there was a resource he had to help work it out. Noah helped me to score about 200 points higher on my SAT. After my very first SAT, he took the problems I had on that and made them the concentration for the next time around. He was always on time and a very friendly person. All-around I was very happy. Highly recommend him!!Jade, 19 lessons with Noah
Noah is a terrific tutor! He tried extra hard to accommodate us on very short notice. He is extremely responsible and punctual. And, most importantly, he is very very good at what he does. My son was scoring in the middle to high 1700s before he started his lessons with Noah. He was completely lost in the reading and writing sections of the test. He had no idea how to write an SAT essay. After just one session, my son moved from scoring 3 to 10 on the essay part. And in the course of one month his reading and writing improved significantly. We just got his first SAT score: 2040!!! Noah gave my son a lot of helpful tips and equipped him with successful strategies, but he also gave him the confidence to face the test and do well. Thank you, Noah!Anna , 4 lessons with Noah
He is good at making strategy! I am not good at SAT grammar, but after he taught me some lessons, I feel like my grammar improved a lot. He can quickly go through the reading or grammar problems and tell you why to choose A instead B, etc. Working with him is very efficient! He is also very patient and responsible! Highly recommend this tutor!Kaili, 6 lessons with Noah
