About Craig

I have been a tutor for the past several years, tutoring all ages of children in a variety of disciplines but mainly specializing in preparing students in math for the SAT,the ACT and the PSAT. I have also prepared students for the Catholic High School entrance exam, the COOP. My style combines instruction in the basic math concepts as well as continual testing with practice exams. I believe this best prepares the student for the rigors of the test and helps build the stamina necessary to succeed. I especially concentrate on having the students eliminate careless errors and understand what each question requires. Depending on the skill level of the student, I customize the program according to need.

I graduated Washington University in St. Louis with a liberal arts degree and a teaching certificate. My background is quite varied, having worked on Wall Street as a research analyst for 10 years and an operations manager for a publicly held company for 10 years. I have also worked in the school system. I am happily married with three children who have graduated from college and are now leading successful careers. In short, I have many life experiences which enable me to connect with children of all ages and I find it especially rewarding to help students learn and succeed. I look forward to having the opportunity to be of help to your child.

Excellent Tutor!!

Craig is an excellent instructor. He explains the whole mathematical process to a question. I like the style of tutoring he does. I feel much more comfortable with the math section of the sat.
