By applying the latest research in educational psychology, I teach my students the study habits they need to excel in any subject. I am always trying to improve my teaching methods and empower my students with the resilience, grit, and motivation necessary for a successful academic and professional career.
I scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT. A graduate of Stuyvesant High School and Vanderbilt University, I have over 10,000 hours of test prep experience (at age 10, I began preparing for the SHSAT and SAT exams).
Having received almost seven years of continuous of tutoring for these exams, I have significant experience on both sides of the table. I know which tutoring strategies work and which just create busywork.
Since I began tutoring five years ago, I've worked with students ranging from the elementary through high school level.
To maximize the effectiveness of my instruction and the individual attention I can provide, I limit myself to 7 students a week. (As of Jun 1, I am meeting regularly with 6 students.)
I have a patient and creative approach to tutoring. I help students identify their weaknesses and work to help them improve their knowledge and skills. I try to make each lesson dynamic, engaging, and enjoyable. I am committed to helping my students improve, and am always easy to reach by phone or by email with any questions that pop up in between lessons.
Frequently asked questions:
Q: Why should I get test prep tutoring?
A: Effective test preparation can result in a huge payoff: the most selective universities also award the largest financial aid packages (with need-based scholarships totaling over $220,000 over a period of 4 years!). However, admittance requires near perfect scores on standardized tests along with a high GPA, a record of leadership/extracurricular activities, positive teacher recommendations, and an excellent college application essay.
Q: Where do meet with your students?
A: Usually, in-home or in a public location (e.g. public library, cafes). I'm also certified by WyzAnt for online tutoring.
