About Lucas

I’m passionate about helping you score higher on the SAT, as quickly and painlessly as possible. I am an English student at the Harvard Extension School, a CELTA Certified ESL Instructor, and have been teaching for over eight years in a variety of subjects.

I believe that with effective guidance and instruction, anyone can significantly increase their test scores and reach the goal that will advance them to the college of their choice. Whether you hate tests or love them, are experienced or not, want to add massive points or just shorten that margin between you and a perfect 800 -- I can help you.

Here’s why I’m so confident I can help you: (1) I tailor every one of my lessons to your unique goals and learning style; I want you to learn in the way that is most effective and natural for you, (2) I am extremely picky about how I spend your time; each lesson is devoted to working directly (and only) on the areas that are challenging for you. (3) Testing is a skill, and I focus on teaching you the habits of the top 1% of test-takers so that you can combine this skill with your content knowledge. The SAT can be challenging, but it’s designed to be beat. With the right guidance and strategy, you can get a score well above where you’re testing now.

Every one of my lessons is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Contact me for a free consultation to see if we'd be a good fit. I look forward to working with you!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am a CELTA Certified Instructor and a Harvard Extension School Undergrad.

SAT Reading

I've spent a lot of time figuring out the best way for you to maximize your SAT test scores by identifying and working on very specific areas of weakness, reinforcing what you've already learned, teaching in the medium most effective for you and using technologies that allow you to effectively self-study and get that extra competitive edge.

Smart, Flexible, and Patient Tutor — Lucas is just amazing! He's teaching me strategies for the SAT that most don't know about. His schedule is very flexible and is willing to work with you according to your own schedule. He puts a lot of time and effort into making a lesson and making sure that his students grasp what he's teaching. He's very reliable and I'm sure my SAT scores will increase because of him. ...
