I Specialize in Standardized Test Preparation.
I have attained perfect or near-perfect scores on the SAT, ACT, GRE and GMAT, and have been tutoring professionally since 2002. I am a skilled communicator and perfectionist, and I can teach you how to excel on these tests like no one else can.
I try to be as flexible as possible with regard to lesson times. I understand that many students have very busy schedules, and am happy to accommodate each student's needs. I schedule lessons on a first-come, first-serve basis, and am available 5 days a week (Sundays 10 am-4 pm and Mondays through Thursdays, 10AM-7PM). Lessons are normally 90 minutes each, but I also offer 1-hour lessons if you prefer.
Short-Term Test Preparation
For those of you who do have at least 3 weeks remaining before your test date, a full preparation is possible if you work hard enough. Students should meet with our tutors at least twice a week (3x a week if needed), for approximately 10-15 lessons of 1.5 hours each. This type of short-term preparation requires that the student be able to devote a substantial amount of time and effort to the task at hand. Homework will be assigned, and as the test date approaches, several practice tests will be administered in order to gauge the student's progress. Students will be expected to complete at least 2 hours of homework for every 1 hour of tutoring time.
Long-Term Test Preparation
Some students prefer to make sure they are prepared well before it comes time to take the actual exam. For example, high PSAT scores can earn scholarships, not to mention build confidence for the real SAT. By starting early, students will get a head start on the rest of their classmates, and will be able to prepare gradually, making sure that they are ready for all aspects of the test.
