"Hello! My name is Luke. I am an experienced, dynamic tutor offering personalized private instruction in English/Writing, organization and study skills, and many standardized tests, including the SAT/PSAT, ACT, ISEE/SSAT, and AP/SAT II subject tests. I also provide specialized advice on how to write competitive essays for college applications, as well as proofreading services for college and postgraduate students. While I live in Palo Alto, I can travel throughout most of the Bay Area to make house calls for lessons. I am Harvard and Stanford educated (BA English) with more than 8 years of tutoring experience. If you are taking the SAT for the first time and want to make sure you are prepared, I can help you. If you are looking to improve your score, we can build a lesson plan that targets your specific strengths and weaknesses. I have helped many students do better on standardized tests by emphasizing test-taking strategies, and focusing on the individual needs of the student. Recently, in addition to my independent lessons, I have taught SAT prep at the Stanford Medical Youth Math and Science program, KIPP King Collegiate High School, and the Level Playing Field Institute in San Francisco. All of my students saw dramatic improvement in their results and their confidence. My area of expertise is writing instruction, and I offer an array of services from spot editing to basic instruction in style and grammar. Whether you are a high school student seeking advice on this week’s essay, or a graduate student looking to polish your thesis, we can work together to ensure that your writing is expressive, concise, and technically accurate. I have helped clients ranging from beginning writers to university professors improve their writing, and I look forward to helping you. Thanks for looking, and I hope we can work together soon!" less...
