Why work with me
I have 13 years of experience tutoring standardized tests, and have personally prepared thousands of students from middle school through college for these exams. I know the tests front and back, inside and out.
I have also helped hundreds of students write their college application essays, work through ELA assignments, and develop their executive function skills. Additionally, I teach students of all abilities effective study techniques; in other words, I teach strategies for how to learn new material quickly and successfully.
Who I work with
I work with students of all ages and levels, and I teach each student according to his or her particular needs. As a high school special education teacher, I am qualified to work with a variety of different learning styles and exceptionalities, and I can work effectively with students who are on individualized education plans (IEPs).
Whether you are new to testing or just need a review, I’ll teach you key content and test strategies to increase your scores and your confidence.
I offer private, one-on-one test preparation for the VERBAL / ESSAY portions of the following standardized tests:
- SAT II (Literature)
- ACT (verbal, essay and science)
- SSAT / ISEE / HSPT
Are you in high school? Not sure which test – the ACT or the SAT – is for you? Ask me! I can help match you to the right test.
Executive Function Coaching
I offer one-on-one coaching in the key areas of executive functioning, including organization, time-management, homework tracking, project management, study skills and more. As a special education teacher with a Master’s Degree in Special Education, I am qualified to work with students with learning disabilities, including ADD/ADHD. Executive functioning skills are paramount to academic and personal achievement: let me help.
I teach students how to learn. This includes note-taking, organization, study techniques based on content and learning profile, memorization strategies, testing strategies, and productivity / focus tips.
Book a basic study skills session to learn good study techniques and habits, or book a session before a big test: I’ll study with you and make sure you’re really prepared.
- Sessions are 60 minutes long, and all sessions are $125 per hour.
- Local sessions only – I currently do not offer virtual sessions.
- For test preparation sessions, students supply their own test book. I supply supplementary learning materials.
- No regular commitment necessary. I simply request a 24-hour cancellation notice.
