Perfect Scores: SAT 1600, ACT 36, GRE Quant 170, Chemistry/MathL2 800

Once you've figured out what the author's saying, you won't have any problem identifying the correct way to edit each pas [more]

Academic Tutor Extraordinaire

The SAT essay is unique in that it requires a student to produce a final draft of an essay in just 25 minutes. I have developed a strategy that makes this easy to do with just a little bit of practice. For students who need help with the multiple choice questions of the SAT Writing Section, I offer no-nonsense approaches and am ready to teach the necessary grammar in a way that sticks even beyond the test. I have developed and taught a highly acclaimed grammar class--I make grammar rules fun (i.e., as much fun as they can be for grammarphobes). [more]
