I an experienced tutor with a proven track record in ACT and SAT preparation. My approach to college admissions test prep can be summed up in one word: Personalized. Despite what they claim, almost all large companies and even many one-on-one tutors take a cookie-cutter approach to test prep, using standardized curriculum or working with students out of the usual study books like Kaplan or Princeton Review. Unlike most individual test prep tutors, I am equally skilled in teaching both the verbal and the math sections of the exams. I hold a Masters in history and was a Ph.D. candidate at UC-Berkeley in geography -- the top ranked department in the United States.

My emphasis on personalization is not a marketing slogan. I was a middle school science teacher for 3 years, and I know how to motivate, challenge, and encourage students who are still becoming adults and who feel frustrated and overwhelmed. Emotional barriers such as anxiety and self-doubt are HUGE factors in student under-performance on college admissions tests, and they are completely ignored. I have yet to meet a new student has who told me that throughout their test they felt confident. Overcoming anxiety and developing confidence turns struggling students into academic successes.
