Oxford Test Expert: Highest Scores on SAT, AP, GMAT, GRE, SAT II, ACT

I'm fortunate to be Oxford educated, where I won a Wellcome fellowship, and I have 10+ years of experience teaching, including the GRE, GMAT, SAT, ACT, AP, and SAT II exams. I also coach applicants and edit applications for some of the most competitive programs the US. I've made perfect or near perfect scores on every standardized test I teach, beginning from when I made perfect scores on SAT I Writing, Verbal, SAT II Math IIC when I was 15. It is not at all uncommon for my students to achi... [more]

SAT Math

For over 10 years, my students have gotten perfect or near perfect SAT scores, including most recently on the new SAT. With a few simple tweaks, many find they can get a 300 point improvement after only a few lesson. When I was 15, I scored 720/800 on the SAT I Math subsection and a perfect score on Math IIC. Since then, I have regularly made perfect scores on SAT I Math as well. I am familiar with all the major test prep companies and their approaches to this exam, including not just what is in their published books but also the supposedly "elite" strategies many say they reserve only for their highest paying clients. (e.g. Princeton Review, Kaplan, Barron's, but also Manhattan SAT, Axiom Learning, Crimson Education, Cambridge Coaching, etc.) I use obsessive data tracking, highly customized syllabi, and a rigorous methodology to quickly zero in on student weaknesses and improve scores. I'm sure I can help you reach your goals. Let's work together!


GRE

For over 10 years, my students have gotten perfect or near perfect GRE scores, including on both the computer and paper-based exam and on the new GRE. With a few simple tweaks, many find they can get a 40+ point improvement after only a few lessons. I have also made perfect scores on this test and have more recently earned a graduate humanities degree from Oxford, where I was also lucky to win a prestigious fellowship. I am familiar with all the major test prep companies and their approaches to this exam, including not just what is in their published books but also the supposedly "elite" strategies many say they reserve only for their highest paying clients. (e.g. Princeton Review, Kaplan, Barron's, but also Manhattan, Veritas, various private tutors, etc.) I use obsessive data tracking, highly customized syllabi, and a rigorous methodology to quickly zero in on student weaknesses and improve scores. I'm sure I can help you reach your goals. My first lesson is also always free of charge, so you can confirm I'm right for you. Let's work together.


SAT Reading

For over 10 years, my students have gotten perfect or near perfect SAT scores, including most recently on the new SAT. With a few simple tweaks, many find they can get a 300 point improvement after only a few lesson. I made perfect scores on SAT Reading when I was 15.

I'm sure I can help you reach your goals. Let's work together!


SAT Writing

For over 10 years, my students have gotten perfect or near perfect SAT scores, including most recently on the new SAT. With a few simple tweaks, often by mastering just a few core English grammar that this test focuses upon, many find they can get a 300 point improvement after only a few lesson. I made perfect score on SAT Writing when I was 15. I am familiar with all the major test prep companies and their approaches to this exam, including not just what is in their published books but also the supposedly "elite" strategies many say they reserve only for their highest paying clients. (e.g. Princeton Review, Kaplan, Barron's, but also Manhattan SAT, Axiom Learning, Crimson Education, Cambridge Coaching, etc.). I will recommend the best of these for our lessons together on SAT Writing depending on how you are currently doing, what your goals are, and what your current goals seem to be. I will continue to check and update my recommendations at each lesson as your mastery of the SAT Writing test evolves. I use obsessive data tracking, highly customized syllabi, and a rigorous methodology to quickly zero in on student weaknesses and improve scores. I'm sure I can help you reach your goals. Let's work together!


GMAT

Worried about the GMAT? I?ve coached many students to the 97 percentile. When students ask, ?How much?? what they really should be asking is ?What?s at stake?? You know you have to take this damn exam that stands between you and your future. What does that future look like? Most MBA-bound students want to go to business school to restart, redirect or re-energise their careers. They want new challenges at work, more pay, more respect. An MBA from a top school will open doors ? it will likely 3X your salary. Imagine your future: earning half-a-million dollars closing deals on Wall Street, wearing bespoke suits and eating at Michelin-star restaurants. Traveling business class. Or, maybe you want to help a Silicon Valley start-up raise money in order to bring a new digital service to millions, making you rich in the process (think Uber). Or, perhaps you?re a scientist who works for a large health-care company and you want to be a leader. Each of these futures requires an MBA. Each of these visions is possible if you work hard and harness the resources of a top business school ? not just classroom resources, but also the student body; networking with other ambitious, creative young business minds is the #1 reason alumni say business school is valuable. Imagine the respect you will garner from family, friends, associates (even competitive childhood friends) as you climb the ladder of success at your new company, building your career on the back of a successful MBA program. The prestige of making a mark in business is undeniable ? think Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbilt and J.P. Morgan. These are the figures from history that business biographies are written about. Perhaps you want to be the first female captain of industry in your chosen field. All these paths require an MBA. Finally, think about your children. Success in your career is vital if you?re going to provide the advantages that are increasingly necessary in the 21st century. I don?t need to tell you how competitive the world has become: there is fierce competition to get jobs, of course (try getting one without an MBA!), but also competition to buy a house in the right neighborhood and attend the right schools. By the time your kids are college-age, the competition to get into the Ivy League will be crushing. As more schools open their doors to hard-studying, wealthy international students, the competition to get a sterling education (which guarantees advantage in later life) will get stiffer and stiffer. Don?t you want your kids to stand a chance against the millions of other aggressive, smart and ambitious students out there? Well, one way to look after them is by achieving your own success so you can provide a strong start in life for them. What is a life like that worth to you? $100,000, $500,000? What if I told you I could give you that life for less than $50,000? even less than $25,000? What if I told you I could give you an opportunity to have that life for as little as $10,000? What would you say? Your perfect future, at a fraction of what you know it?s worth? So, whether you want to be a big M&A banker, a tech founder, a genetics pioneer or a humanitarian social entrepreneur, you?re going to need hard work and the right credentials. I?m talking about an MBA from a top business school. That diploma is the gateway to a life of excitement, wealth, prestige and respect. But, here?s the cold, hard fact: you need to ace the GMAT to get there. This difficult exam is now mandatory at all the big-name business schools. I?ve been teaching the GMAT and other standardized tests since I, myself, made a near perfect score on this exam in 2011. I have extensive experience working in both hedge funds/investment banking and Silicon Valley. I'm very happy to also advise my students on broader business school application issues and broader career mentoring whenever I can. I?ve seen every type of student, with every type of difficulty and handicap. I?ve helped hundreds before, and I can help you.


Macroeconomics

I earned perfect scores on the AP Macroeconomics and Microeconomics exams at 15 and did graduate work in Economics at Oxford. At The White House, I helped analyze and implement the $831B stimulus package President Obama passed just after the financial crisis. I have over 10 years of experience analyzing economic data as an investment banker, hedge fund analyst, and later as a hedge fund portfolio manager. More than just knowing the material, I believe I can make the most complex concepts in this field simple. And I can help students learn to constantly consider, question, and appreciate the web of proposed relationships that governs modern economic thinking. I am also familiar with the intellectual history, philosophical questions, and ideological disagreements that underpin most of our current economic debates. Though these are not always taught in the classroom, I find that explaining these supplementary topics to students can help them to really retain and master economic concepts. I want my students to achieve their desired grades and test scores, and I also believe that teaching economics in this way makes it relevant to the real world and, hopefully, even fun. I seek to help my students to become smart, savvy, and appropriately skeptical consumers of economic findings for the rest of their professional lives.
