Mr. Tim has been a great piano teacher. We started without any piano experience at all and Tim has inspired our whole family to play the piano. Our son, 10 years old, has ADHD and he’s autistic and loves his piano lessons! Would highly recommend!!

I am an MIT tutor specializing in math, science, and test prep, and I have received a perfect score on the SAT Math. I have taught math anywhere between pre-algebra and calculus (including including test prep) for 5 years. I also have received perfect scores on both ACT Math and SAT Math Level 2 (SAT Subject Test).

Before we begin our lessons, I ask the student to take a diagnostic test that I provide and discuss the results with the parents and/or student so that we can develop a plan that works the best for the student and his/her schedule.

During the lessons, I drill the students on these topics until I am fully convinced that the student has fully mastered the materials. As we progress through the course and as the student make progress in different areas, I adapt the curriculum so that the students can most benefit from the lessons.

I normally use the Princeton Review's Cracking the SAT with 6 Practice Tests, Kaplan's SAT Math Workbook, and McGraw Hill's SAT with 4 ...

Nayoon took my daughter from a failing grade to an “A”. I am indebted to her. My daughter loves Nayoon because she is interested, kind & cheery. She is ten steps ahead and understands exactly what the teacher wants her to learn. But, more importantly, Nayoon taught her how to think and not just memorize. Nayoon doesn’t try to waste time or spread out a lesson. She cares more about my daughter learning & absorbing & being prepared! My daughter now wants to take the AP exam in chemistry because Nayoon made chemistry interesting & understandable. Thank you so much!!! Hilary Kramer
