I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from preschool through graduate school. While I have expertise in teaching reading, literature, writin [more]

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.
