I'm a Harvard graduate who has worked for 13 years as a professional private tutor of SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, and AP Exams. I've also taught general academics including Mathematics, Calculus, English, Spanish, US History, and more. I love my job and take pride in my work.

Over the last decade I have helped over 400 bright young people -- all one-on-one -- take their high school exams, compose their college entrance essays, and gain admission to some of the country's most prestigious universities.

I always offer a free in-person consultation about the testing and admissions process.

How a Typical Program Works

Early 11th grade: learn the content of the SAT or ACT -- individual mathematics topics, rules of grammar, and a specific format for the essay -- in weekly sessions over two to four months

Middle 11th grade: take several timed practice exams to hone skills and strategy, and go over them together in subsequent meetings to identify and ameliorate problem areas

Winter/Spring 11th grade: take SAT and/or ACT twice

Spring 11th grade: take two or three SAT Subject Tests (MathII is most teachable and time-intensive)

Summer/Fall 12th grade: organize, compose, and edit college entrance essays

Fall 12th grade: retake exam(s) if needed, and finalize college applications
