Private ACT Teacher

Studying is serious business. We will write essays. We will analyze passages. We will laugh in the face of all that is boring about standardized tests.

Ultimately, my paradigm as a teacher will be to make myself progressively unnecessary.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 re

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.

Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .
Sadie
Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

She is so awesome. I took SAT lessons and my score improved 300 points... way better than I could have dreamed. Got into my first choice college. She gives great advice and everything. Love her.
Tom
Katrina is honestly a lifesaver. She has taught me so much about singing. I have been working with her for years and she is truly the most amazing person I've met. She is not an ordinary tutor. She is dedicated, kind, helpful, and engaging. Every lesson I have with her I feel like I am growing as a singer. I have been taking singing lessons from her and my son has been taking academic lessons from her. She is amazing, I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
Sally
Katrina is the best tutor I could ever ask for! She has helped me learn and grow so much in my performance. I have been working with her for a year. Every lesson we had, she has been so encouraging and I have genuinely learned so much. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs an inspiring, energetic, and knowledgeable tutor!

Jacob
Spectacular and Recommended Tutor!
Jennifer tutored my daughter for the ACT. The results were nothing short of spectacular. Jennifer is incredibly smart, has a lovely disposition with parents and students, is prompt and communicative, and most importantly, clearly knows what she is doing. She is strategic in every aspect of her tutoring for the ACT, which is exactly what we needed and what hooked my daughter into the plan. She never complained about the tutoring sessions -- she saw the value immediately. Result: 7 point composite increase with 6-8 point improvement in every test area! To give you context to determine how your own student might fare, my daughter is highly intelligent, takes every AP class she can, and is very "coachable," so she started the tutoring with a lot of potential. However, she was not into studying for the test at all (SAT, same thing) and generally performs below her ability on standardized tests due to text anxiety. When push came to shove, she saw that her scores were below what she needed for her first choice college. With only three weeks to study before her last chance to improve her scores, she began to work with Jennifer. Jennifer tutored my daughter for a total of about 18 hours and gave her practice assignments. She zeroed in strategically on the types of questions that were the most problematic for her and explained, for example, that if she had just known a certain skill, she would have gotten 8 questions correct and thereby improved her score by 3 points (numbers estimated from memory). That approach drew my daughter in right away and it worked! I highly recommend Jennifer. She was worth every minute and every penny.
Steven
EXCEPTIONAL tutor!! Patient! Thorough! Highly Knowledgeable!
Jennifer consistently shows up for our daughter's online sessions with a bright, warm smile that immediately puts our daughter's nerves at ease. Jennifer patiently and skillfully untangled the complicated problems that had befuddled our daughter, and replaced her insecurity with clarity and confidence! Jennifer tamed the big "Math monster", replacing it with a manageable "math puppy"! Over the last 6 months, Jennifer was able to explain and demystify difficult math concepts, increasing our daughter's confidence and competence with every session! Before beginning sessions with Jennifer, our daughter had set the bar low, wishing only to "pass" her math classes with an acceptable grade, in order to complete her college career. However, by week eight of tutoring, with soaring confidence and new-found math proficiency, our daughter not only passed her final summer math class, but earned an "A" , finishing at the TOP of her class! This would not have been possible without the extraordinary skillfulness, expert teaching abilities and patience that Jennifer brings in her masterful "tool chest." She speaks the "language of math" in a way that crystallizes its concepts for her students! She is an extraordinary teacher and an absolute gift to her students!!
Stephanie
Highly Recommended!!!!!!!
Jennifer has been tutoring our daughter for over 2 years in ESL. Our daughter loves Jennifer, she is very knowledgeable, straight to the point, very clear with her explanations, and helps her a lot with grasping some concepts that are unclear for her. Jennifer is always willing to accommodate my schedule and willing to make extra time for my daughter when she needed it. She’s very patient and truly wants her students to succeed! My only regret is that we had not found Jennifer earlier!

Josh is a wonderful voice teacher who happens to also be an amazing human being. I feel comfortable enough to take risks and grow in my voice every time we have a lesson together. He has truly helped me expand as an artist and learn new information about singing!
Leya
Josh is such an amazing and caring teacher! Singing can be a vulnerable thing, especially when you are working on parts of your voice that need improvement and might not currently sound the best. However, Josh really made me feel comfortable when we were working on those parts of my voice and I could definitely see improvement even within the span of an hour! He is very knowledgeable when it comes to all the exercises that help you bring your sound forward, sing without tension and control your breathing. His enthusiasm for teaching is incredible and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants try classical singing!!
Anthony
An awesome teacher that makes me feel self assured and excited to work on the next level of singing! Very positive but also constructive, encouraging me to grow. Incredibly experienced performer as well

My daughter studied with him multiple times at a mutual site preparing for her ACT test. He would not only explain why she missed a problem on a practice test but then teach her so she understood the concept. He was very diligent, professional and thorough in his tutoring.
