#### Experience

FREE initial consultation! (please see below for details)My Tutoring Credentials, Experience, Methods, and Preparation:

GRE, 12/2011 scores:

Math: 169/170 (98th percentile)

Verbal Reasoning: 163/170 (93rd percentile)

Analytical Writing: 6 / 6 (99th percentile)

Praxis Scores: On the demanding, high-level Praxix II 0061 math content exam, I scored 186, earning a certificate of excellence from ETS for “exceptional performance.” I Scored a perfect 200 on the challenging Praxis II 0063 math exam and a perfect score of 190 for Math Praxis I.

I recently passed all three CSET mathematics tests for teacher certification in California:

Subtest 1: Algebra and Number Theory

Subtest 2: Geometry and Probability

Subtest 3: Trigonometry, Calculus and History of Math

My work experience is extensive. I have taught SAT preparation classes since 2001. I have always excelled at SAT-type questions: As a high school junior my scores were 99th percentile in math and 93rd percentile in verbal. (The writing section did not exist at the time, but I achieved the 99th percentile on the more demanding GRE writing section.)

Since then, I have significantly strengthened my analytical reading and writing skills by regularly studying grammar, style, and word usage (I have a great library to share). I have taken dozens of practice SAT exams over the years. I averaged 2370 on four recent full-length SAT assessment tests.

I am confident in my ability to explain the concepts required for achieving your goals. I have a strong grasp of the tricks and tactics necessary for managing one’s time while taking this lengthy and stressful test, and I know useful strategies for narrowing down the answers for difficult questions so that students rarely need to resort to random guessing.

As I have helped others to do, I would love to help any prospective college student raise his or her SAT scores by hundreds of points and gain admittance to a first-choice college. I also offer tutoring for high school and middle school math classes.

I can be a valuable resource for anyone looking to improve the structure, grammar or content of a college essay or any other writing piece.

Additionally, I am an effective tutor for basic economics classes.

Though I have never taken an official ACT exam, I routinely complete ACT exams from The Real ACT book (actual ACT exams) with perfect or near-perfect scores.

I have experience tutoring for the more difficult SAT IIC subject test in mathematics (my own score was 780). I have also tutored for the GMAT and GRE exams.

For any test prep tutoring, I come prepared with examples, solved problems, notes, and any other materials that might be useful. The student's time is maximized as a result of my diligent preparation and dedication.

For all other tutoring, I come prepared with a basic lesson plan, examples, and solved problems tailored to the specific needs of the student.

PLEASE NOTE! I now offer a FREE initial consultation. During this 30 to 60 minute meeting, I further describe my methods and experience. I will also answer any questions you may have, and we will discuss your goals and expectations. So far, everyone who has taken advantage of this opportunity has hired me.
