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

SAT Writing requires three skills: punctuation, reading, and vocabulary. Punctuation is straightforward to learn. As with Math, the SAT recycles the same kinds of Grammar questions over and over again, and if you practice the rules, you'll eventually get all of the questions right. Questions about adding/deleting sentences, modifying phrases to make them more relevant, and putting paragraphs in order rely on skills that you'll be practicing for the Reading section anyway. 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]
