About Mindy


Bio

Hi, I'm Mindy! I received my undergraduate degree from Cornell University, and first taught the SAT, PSAT, GRE and LSAT while in my Master’s program at Penn State. I consistently score in the top 97-99% for all tests that I teach.

I scored a 760 in SAT Reading and SAT Writing combined in the October 2019 exam.

I know there are many options for families when it comes to exam prep for their kids, including online instruction or self-led study using Khan Academy or books. However,...

I know there are many options for families when it comes to exam prep for their kids, including online instruction or self-led study using Khan Academy or books. However, effectively preparation for a standardized exam is best accomplished by deep diving into one’s mistakes and analyzing the test’s patterns. Without proper direction, this can be a painstaking process. Most self-led programs don’t teach it, and students simply don’t have the time and energy to systematically identify their personal pain points on their own. Other students have trouble connecting with the material using screen-based technologies. That’s where instructor-led prep can help, and why I believe that face-to-face is the best way to learn.

I sit the SAT with my students twice a year. I scored a 760 in SAT Reading and SAT Writing combined in the October 2019 exam. Previous exams have seen my score as high as 790 (yes, I'm chasing that perfect 800!). In addition to making sure my students have a similarly strong grasp on the test content, I'm an expert at common traps the test makers like to set. I share these, along with an arsenal of test-taking strategies, with my students to increase their knowledge and flexibility in choosing the correct answer. Most importantly, I hold students accountable for doing their homework. The improvement happens in the application between classes.
