Test Prep Master with 20 Yrs Experience in Many Subjects

As a poet and recipient of a master's in comparative literature, I have a very strong writing background. I have been teaching the Writing section of the SAT for more than a decade. I was initially trained by Kaplan, where I taught for many years, and continue to favor their materials and methods. However, I am flexible and well-versed enough in the exam to employ whatever materials my students prefer. I completed my M.A. in Comparative Literature on full fellowship at the University of Southern California (USC). I have nearly twenty years of experience as a teacher, tutor, and academic mentor [more]

Writing, Reading, and Critical Thinking for the Humanities

I have seen the difficulties that students have with writing from several different angles. I teach (and grade papers!) at the college level, and have been doing so for ten semesters, in 100- and 200-level and adult education courses. As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I have been teaching those skills as part of those classes for just as...

Experienced ACT/SAT tutor, Certified Teacher, Math and English

The SAT writing test is unusual because it tests students rhetorical skills considerably more than the ACT writing (English) test does. Rhetorical questions can be tricky, and even subjective. I've developed an approach to these types of questions that make them considerably easier for students to tackle. I am a certified teacher with 16 years of teaching experience and nearly seven years of tutoring experience, specializing in preparing students for the ACT and SAT. I have a solid history of results with students typically making gains of 5-8 points on their ACT composite, and increases of be [more]

Duke MBA specializing in GMAT, ACT/SAT, Admissions, Executive Coaching

I am an experienced tutor and love working with high school students. I trained with Kaplan Test Prep and taught SAT/PSAT classes for two years. Of the 100 or so students I taught during that time, my students gained an average of 225 points. Some students achieved even greater gains than the average, of 300-400 points, driven by their willingness to complete homework and to engage with me and ask for help. I'd be happy to help you achieve this level of success in your SAT/PSAT test preparation. National Merit scholar with a 98th/99th percentile score on the SAT/PSAT Writing section. [more]
