I scored in the 96th percentile on the SAT. When I was an undergraduate at Trinity University, I was exempt from taking the required English courses due to my high SAT scores in reading and writing.

He was experienced and very caring for my daughter to feel comfortable.
It was a first piano lesson for my 7 year old and she bragged about how she enjoyed the class. I am so glad that we found him!

Tim is an excellent teacher. He is great with my 9 year old daughter in her piano lessons. He is very patient, and quite passionate about music. He takes the time to answer my daughter's many questions, and has helped to further her passion for piano playing. She has been taking lessons with him for almost a year now, and has enjoyed and benefited from every minute. I couldn't ask for a better piano teacher!

I did well on the SAT. Preparation for these tests requires not only knowledge of the subject matter but test-taking strategies such as time management.

Need better scores? Or just help with homework? Contact me!

To help you reach your personal academic goals, (whether it be pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trig, pre-Calculus or Calculus, SAT, and/or the ACT test preparation, or may be GRE preparation for an older audience) I will find your weak topics and help you understand it fully. For that, I analyze your previous work and we discuss what you did and why. I will help you to see the logic in the solution and understand the relationship between concepts. Between sessions, I will happily answer short questions off the clock by email, or Skype.

For the SAT/ACT test takers my plan is usually for a student to take the practice test at home or school, then grade it and come back to me with the results. We will diagnose your problems (as in “didn’t have enough time”, “don’t know how to approach a problem like this”, “didn’t read the problem carefully”, “made a calculation error”, “didn’t know the definition” and so on) and work ...

Leona K.

New York, NY

I've been teaching SAT preparation for 10 years and my students have increased their SAT scores over 500 points from their initial scores.

I create a personalized daily syllabus that caters to each student's individual strengths and weakness, and check in with my students daily to make sure that they are completing their homework assignments and have no questions.

My program is rigorous and demanding, but leads to significantly higher scores very quickly. I do not give my students a chance to slack off or to stop doing their homework assignments because students are required to enter when they have completed their homework assignments, their scores, and their vocabulary words daily through a virtual tracking system that I have created.

I provide a book list including Collegeboard and Kaplan books, though can work with whatever books students already have. I incorporate technology to keep students engaged.

I can't wait to begin!

I will tutor you on any part of the SAT with which you might be having trouble. We will work practice problems and I will make sure you understand how to solve them on your own. For the essay portion, we will discuss the expected format for a student's essay and the dos and don'ts in crafting a well-articulated argument.

Chinese was really tough for me...but Gordon made it a lot easier and helped me practice to be comfortable with the language. He puts a lot of effort into making sure you understand the material. If you don't, he'll go through it with you and try different methods until you do. I highly recommend him!
