Frequently asked questions:

Q: Why should I get test prep tutoring?

A: Effective test preparation can result in a huge payoff: the most selective universities also award the largest financial aid packages (with need-based scholarships totaling over $220,000 over a period of 4 years!). However, admittance requires near-perfect scores on standardized tests along with a rigorous course load, high GPA, a record of leadership/extracurricular activities, an excellent college application essay, and positive teacher recommendations.

Q: Where do you meet your students?

A: I offer in-home and online tutoring." less...
