Bio

Hello, my name is Lawrence!

I graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 2016 and graduated cum Laude in 2021 from NYU with a bachelor's degree in Global Public Health/Anthropology with a minor in Chemistry. I have a strong background and interest in the STEM field and will be applying for medical school admission in 2022.

When I took the ACT, I scored 34 out of 36, which was the 99th percentile of that year. On the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT), I scored a 579.

Hello, my name is Lawrence!

I graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 2016 and graduated cum Laude in 2021 from NYU with a bachelor's degree in Global Public Health/Anthropology with a minor in Chemistry. I have a strong background and interest in the STEM field and will be applying for medical school admission in 2022.

When I took the ACT, I scored 34 out of 36, which was the 99th percentile of that year. On the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT), I scored a 579.

I have been tutoring students on the SAT/ACT/SHSAT/NYS Regents Exams since May of 2017. I am looking forward to sharing all of the test taking strategies that I have learned throughout my own studies and through working with over 90 students since 2017.

I can proudly say that after completing multiple sessions with me, all of my students have seen their scores increase by an average of 200 points on the SAT and an average of 6 points on the ACT. I genuinely believe that my method of teaching, which involves learning test-specific strategies and reviewing real test questions, is highly effective in raising my students' test scores.

Additionally, I am very familiar with the concepts being taught in Elementary, Middle, and High School mathematics and ELA, including Algebra, Geometry, Grammar, and Reading Comprehension.

If you have questions or would like to set up an appointment, feel free to contact me. I am very flexible will try my best to work with your schedule.

I look forward to hearing from you!

patient and smart tutor.

Highly recommend Lawrence. He knows these tests inside and out. Helped us recognize our son’s strengths and weaknesses and to set up a strategy to work towards on the SHSAT.

Glad we connected with Lawrence Y.

My son is a Junior this year and is preparing for the college entrance exams. Lawrence met with my son twice and already my son has made a decision about whether he wants to take the ACT or the SAT. Lawrence was able to help break down the components of each exam. Lawrence is patient and answers all of my questions as well as my son's questions. My son feels he is challenged when working with Lawrence and leaves the lessons feeling like he has learned so much in such a short period. I am glad we connected with Lawrence. Thanks ~Christine.

The tutor who understands and listens

Lawrence is a tutor who puts a lot of effort into teaching. The most important part is he listens. He doesn't assume things and jump into conclusion based on experience with other students. He's also very open minded and honest. He knows what he's talking about and he isn't arrogant like my previous tutor.

Help withTest prep for SHSAT

Both of my sons are applying for the specialized high school in NY. Lawrence was extremely helpful with the English and math, specifically helping them prepare for the NEW SHSAT, by having them review problems from SAT. He was very knowledgeable and we will be tutoring with him again!
