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

Harvey Mudd Grad Coaches Mindful Learning

As a professional SAT Writing tutor, I focus on the moment-by-moment experience my students have while doing each specific type of problem this test offers. By noticing where they get in their own way, my students develop their own techniques and learn how to teach themselves. I fully expect, for example, that you will find that the SAT Writing section treats you much better when you apply the Process of Elimination to each problem. I serve merely as a guide for this self-discovery and have seen phenomenal results with this approach. [more]
