"I work specifically with teaching students how to become better, more efficient, active readers. Many students read words, yet do not grasp the overall concepts that authors are trying to express. The questions on all standardized tests test a student's ability to understand greater ideas that authors are trying to convey. Understanding structure, and how an author builds his argument is essential in reading and answering the questions on all standardized tests. I teach a student how to become a better reader, so eventually, no material is too challenging for someone to understand. However, students must also learn to be patient so my background in yoga and meditation is helpful in teaching that skill in order to cope with the frustration that most of them are encountering on verbal sections.

I am a former test prep teacher from the Princeton Review, as well as a certified yoga and meditation instructor that has worked with teenagers specifically. I specialize in Reading/Writing on standardized tests including: MCAT, LSAT, GRE, GMAT, SAT/ACT, PRAXIS, SSAT, ISEE. I'm also a helpful and experienced advisor on college applications and essays, and am available for general tutoring in English, Literature, US History, Philosophy, and Sociology.

I have an extensive background in working with students in many capacities, both academically as well as holistically. Performing well on a standardized test has a lot to do with state of mind, so in addition to covering the materials, I also focus on helping students deal with stress and anxiety. I have excellent relationships with my students and those relationships have continued long after our work was finished. Excellent references upon request. If you need a special tutor, you're looking for me." less...
