I have more than a decade of experience in helping students achieve their personal best on standardized tests. I've recieved top marks on the SAT, GRE, and LSAT. I have a BA in Government & Politics from the University of Maryland's prestigious honors program. I am currently studying towards a Masters in Geography at Hunter College.

I started tutoring SAT for my high school in 2005, shortly after I took the test myself. I tutored part-time throughout college, and have been tutoring full-time since 2012. Since then, I've branched out into similar subject areas such as ACT, GRE and SSAT. I love that my job allows me to help kids succeed. It's truly fulfilling to hear back from parents when their children get accepted into the schools of their choice.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor!

I was struggling with GRE since I'm an International student. But after I took couple of tutoring from Adam, it became easier for me to understand how to solve questions.

Kate, 6 lessons with Adam

Great tutor

Adam really pushes our son, without being pushy. Very tactful and knowledgeable tutor. Highly recommended. He is helping our 8th grader in algebra, for upcoming tests.

Franck, 3 lessons with Adam

Great tutor!

Adam was really great with my middle aged school boys in SSAT prep. He was always punctual, well prepared and knew his stuff. He also had a really nice touch with keeping two boys focused and engaged with the review material. We would use him again and I highly recommend him.

Serge, 5 lessons with Adam

Excellent Tutor!!

Adam was excellent in prepping my son for the SSAT. He tutored him weekly for about 7 weeks and his progress was notable and better than expected. He ended up with a superb score on the SSAT on the first try; I am sure that Adam's involvement was a large part of his success. I would recommend Adam to anyone looking for an excellent tutor for their son or daughter!!

Stuart, 10 lessons with Adam

Very Motivating

My 8th grader has been working with Adam for 8 weeks to prepare for several high school placement tests. Adam clearly and patiently explains the material, and he helps my son understand when he gets the wrong answers without making him feel anxious or incapable. My son is always very engaged and looks forward to his meetings with Adam. This process has also helped my son to identify and close some gaps in his knowledge and skills, and I believe it will contribute to building his self-confidence.

Works at a good pace

Doesn't overwhelm my son with homework or test taking. Addresses questions about problems immediately and then gives practice ones to make sure my son understands the process.
