Overview

I graduated with a 4.0 from Lexington High School, one of the top public high schools in the country. I got a 2380 out of 2400 on the SAT and did very well on AP tests and the SAT Subject Tests. I attended Harvard College where I graduated with a 3.98 GPA and a major in Economics. I now run a tech startup which makes educational apps for patients at hospitals. I am a good listener and work to personalize my teaching so each student gets the most out of it. If you work with me once, I think you'll see I'm good at what I do.

Growing up with Michael Gants he is not only a great instructor/tutor but also overall a well rounded person. He's always looking out for others and finds small but powerful connections with other people. His teaching skills and the connections I've made with him since diaper days have stuck with me in a positive direction.

Michael has been an amazing help as I prepared for the SAT exam. He has always shown a dedication to helping others professionally, and just as a friend. He knows the ins and outs of this exam and can offer unique advice and skills to anyone gearing up for it.
