I have earned my BA and an MA in education which allows me a deeper understanding of not only how to teach, but how to learn. I want to pass on this knowledge to you or your child. I have spent my life developing good study skills and have used them successfully at all levels of my education as an international baccalaureate and AP student and as an undergraduate and graduate student. I have also taught international students the skills necessary to succeed in a college environment in English for academic preparedness classes which not only teach the language but the culture of the university. IF A TIME IS NOT LISTED AS AVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE. I CAN PROBABLY ACCOMMODATE YOU :)
I have helped dozens of students over the last eight years improve their SAT scores dramatically. There are clear types of questions the math section of the SAT repeatedly asks. The first step to mastering the test is to know how to do each type, the next and most often neglected step is to know how to do each type with ease and the last step is to be able to quickly recognize each type and apply the techniques necessary for solving them. My method for achieving this is to explain the concepts multiple ways to find the one that makes most sense to the student. Then I have students repeatedly do each type until they become commonplace. Last, I have them do as many practice tests as possible so they learn to apply the concepts utilizing time management. By repeating each question type rather than doing one and moving one I ensure that the concept sticks in the student's mind. By repeatedly taking practice tests students earn the confidence they need on testing day to perform their best.
Looking for the best in personalized SAT prep? I train students in a series of techniques proven to increase test scores. How do I know it works? I've been tutoring professionally for over ten years, and the results are clear. My students have recently been accepted to Columbia, Cambridge, University of Chicago, NYU, and Emory. I currently teach students at Dalton, Collegiate, Horace Mann, Chapin, Riverdale, Poly Prep, and a handful of other schools. What's my secret? I've spent twelve years perfecting the strategies it takes to think like a test-maker. But I also tune my lessons, pacing, and teaching style to the student's specific needs. Every learner is different, so in order to crack a test like the SAT, each student needs to build their own, unique approach. It's essential to quickly identify challenge areas--like stamina, speed, subject-specific content, and question analysis. I lay out a weekly plan to tackle these challenges, leading up to the test date. Acing the SAT in particular is about learning the ropes and playing the game. Broadly, I focus on three areas: STRATEGY, CONTENT, and SPEED. My aim is for sessions to be both enjoyable AND demanding. The goal is to build confidence and familiarity alongside mastery of the material.
