Bio

I have 15 years experience as an instructor of philosophy, during which time I have taught over 100 courses at a variety of colleges and universities, most recently and extensively at Los Angeles Pierce College and East Los Angeles College.

I have 15 years experience as an instructor of philosophy, during which time I have taught over 100 courses at a variety of colleges and universities, most recently and extensively at Los Angeles Pierce College and East Los Angeles College.

A lot of that teaching concerned the traditional topics of philosophy (about which I am always happy to talk!), but through Pierce College’s Honors Program, I had the unique opportunity to design and teach a “Critical Thinking and Composition” course each semester that has helped me to understand the difficulties students have in analyzing argumentative writing and composing essays that evaluate such writing – exactly what you will be asked to do on the SAT, ACT and GRE.

I have also been a tutor for the SAT, ACT, and GRE for the past 12 years, working at first for a big prep company and then independently. In that time I have helped over 300 students improve their scores through my one-on-one lessons.

I have worked with students as young as 10 and as old as 65, but the vast majority of my teaching has been with high school and college-aged students.

I love teaching in a classroom, but there is something great about the challenge of one-on-one tutoring. I try to figure out what is holding individual students back and adapt my teaching to their needs. This allows me to be very efficient at raising my students' scores, regardless of the level they begin at.

If you would like more details on what and how I teach, please don't hesitate to contact me. I would be more than happy to share the general principles I cover in my tutorials. I have a well thought-out program and I would be glad to let you know what you are going to learn ahead of time.

I believe these exams can be beaten! It takes hard work and dedicated practice but I have done it myself and helped many others do it too.
