About Andre

I have tutored hundreds of students to success in the SAT and the ACT, am the founder of a Greater Philadelphia Test Prep Company, and am authoring a book for ACT prep that will be published in May.

There are 2 things that separate me from other test prep tutors you will find.

1) Just how good can a tutor be if the last time they took the test they tutor for was 6,8, 10 years ago?
I take the SAT and ACT at least once a year to keep my skills sharp and deliver the best prep possible to every student I work with.

2) How effective can a tutoring session be if the student is simply being spoken to and doesn't take notes? Efficient learning is a multi-sensory process. I use a SmartPen, a digital tool that captures all of the notes and audio of each session so the student can access and replay their notes to build retention of important concepts and strategies.

3) Diet, Sleep, Goal-Setting: these are all things important to master for success on these tests, but things students never learn about in school. I will work with your student to ensure they optimize their physiology for peak performance on the test of their choice.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Great tutor -- thorough explanations, great subject knowledge! — Andre has been helping our daughter prepare for SATs. He has great hints for studying, learning formulas, breaking problems down, etc. He is always timely and professional. Because he was recently a college student, he is very familiar with the SAT process. We would highly recommend him if you live in the Collegeville area. ...
