Hi prospective students, my name is Ricky, and I have over ten years of experience as a professional tutor.

Harvard doctoral, 10 yrs. middle/high school teacher

For a decade I taught writing to middle school students, and for five years after that I taught a writing-intensive introduction to psychology to Harvard sophomores, winning teaching awards each time. This range of experiences has helped me develop both strong methods of instruction and strong intuitions about how to understand and organize the thoughts of an adolescent writer. One simple yet useful approach to the SAT writing section is to recognize that in most respects it is more like scientific writing than expressive writing. Notwithstanding that the test often asks writers to express t [more]

Math, science, and test prep tutor fresh out of Stanford

For over two years, I've been helping students achieve the scores they need to get into their dream schools. Test prep can be stressful for students and families, so I always bring patience and enthusiasm to each session, as well as the proven techniques that I've used to help dozens of students significantly improve their performance. I carry a bachelors in engineering physics and masters degree in materials science engineering. Striving for an top-notch test score, or mastering math and physics classes, can be daunting and frustrating. Sometimes a teacher doesn?t explain the material well, o [more]

Tutor -- Writing, SAT Test Prep, History, French, Latin, German

My degrees are in history, but I have always required and evaluated student writing in every course I have given. I have helped scores of students improve their writing skills in order to prepare for the SAT essay section. After reviewing grammar, syntax, and word choice, the skills I emphasize are, first, demonstrating one's thesis or argument with specific detail, and second, developing one's thesis from introduction to conclusion. I greatly enjoy working with students, having tutored, taught, and coached students for the past thirty years. My degrees are from Harvard College (B.A.) and the [more]

Highly Experienced Tutor

A friend once commented to me that my success as a tutor is due to the fact that I am, "a Renaissance man in the age of specialization." In other words, I can tutor most subjects K-12, I speak French and Portuguese fluently and have an intermediate Spanish level, and I am highly experienced with SSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and TOEFL prep, among many other standardized tests. My students have told me that I'm, "funny, smart, and cool," but more importantly, I have many years of experience helpi... [more]
