Test preparation lessons I have held so far include SAT, GED, GRE, GKT, and ASVAB exams, where the students ranged from 15-50+ years old. Most of my test prep sessions have seemingly been focused on math or science but in reality are focused on problem-solving and test-taking skills, hidden within math and science problems. Learning the material is only the first part of test preparation. Knowing the content, however, does not necessarily guarantee success because many students blank on tests, have test anxiety, or run out of time. The way to solve this problem is NOT to repeat similar problems over and foster memorization because anything that is just memorized can be forgotten on test day. Rather, the way to solve these test-day problems is to ingrain the thought processes into the student's head using problems that may seem vastly unlike one another but are in fact teaching this same concept. When giving a student similar problems as practice, their brain will revert to "what did I

Emily is excellent! Emily is very knowledgeable, yet knows how to convey that knowledge to the student. She is smart, confident, patient, kind, and personable! I would highly recommend Emily to any student seeking to move to another level in saxophone mastery!

Emily is very easy to talk to and will go over things in different ways to make sure that you understand the concepts you struggle with.

I was very impressed with how open she was to setting goals and having something prepared for our first meeting.

Ironically there is very little I can express on this matter in this context, typed words...

Bottom line is this, I guarantee I am great at public speaking simply because I depend on this skill every single day of my life both professionally as the Director of my company, and personally when I meet new people.....

I have enough patience and confidence for the both of us and I am willing to share some with you right now if you just ask....

Thank you for your time and consideration,
Omar J.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

"My family and I appreciate Natalie so much. I recently PASSED my Reading (Score:44) and Math (Score:52) section in the CBEST exam!!! She has been very patient with me throughout the entire process of reviewing for my CBEST exam. She has helped and guided me all the way. She has provided me excellent materials that I used to help me review for my exam. The first time I took the test, I did not pass, so Natalie provided me additional exercises on material covered between sessions; it is an added plus and surely accelerated my overall progress. She would always remind me to always take my time, read the test questions carefully and double check my answers! During the exam I did exactly what she said and it worked!!! Everything that was on the CBEST exam are the ones we reviewed together. Natalie, you are just THE best - thank you so much for all that you did for me! I will miss our review sessions! I highly recommend her - anyone who would hire her will be in great hands!"
