Absolutely Proficient and Talented Teaching
I teach, diagnose, and tutor students
for a living, and take SAT & ACT exams and develop assessments. This is
not a side gig to earn extra cash.
I am a full-time professional
credentialed teacher & tutor who teaches 7 days
a week. Over the past 9 years I have personally taught and tutored more than
2000 students in middle and high schools, offices, conference rooms, and over
online meeting calls.
My teaching experience includes
planning lessons, creating worksheets / handouts / homework problem sets, and
developing quizzes and exams. I have written and produced hundreds of pages
of teaching & instructional materials.
When it comes to the SAT & ACT,
I have personally taken more than 60 SAT exams and 40 ACT exams, developed
hundreds of pages of SAT & ACT course review content, and analyzed over
7000 SAT & ACT exam questions.
I am a graduate of the
In addition, I have a corporate
background, having worked several years at two large management consulting
firms and two large banks.
If I can’t help you and you are not
learning, I will stop the lesson and you will get a refund for any unused
There is a Right Way to Teach & Tutor
Your lessons are just the tip of
The preparation and planning for
your lessons actually started years before your first lesson: I have spent months going through and
analyzing problems and questions, then putting together study materials and
handouts, worksheets and reinforcement practice problems.
time to do things right. Just as with any well-rehearsed performance, tutoring
is not something you can just walk into. With utmost attention to detail,
every problem and explanation has been taught and adjusted literally
hundreds of times.
Proper teaching & tutoring goes
far beyond just answering questions
1. Assess Knowledge
thing that needs to happen is I assess and determine what your teacher /
professor has covered in class, what you are supposed to know, what you do
know and what you don't know. I assess and verify your understanding by
asking your knowledge of concepts, and test you by giving you problems to
solve. You would be surprised how many kids think “Yeah I know it" but
2. Fill In Knowledge Gaps
waste time reviewing what you know, but I also find any gaps or deficiencies in
knowledge that need to be learned. I’ll go back only as far as I need to. I
provide far better teaching and explanations than other teachers / tutors so
that you will UNDERSTAND and REVIEW what you don’t know.
lesson and explanation is adjusted in REAL-TIME just for you: the speed &
pacing, the complexity of explanation, and how far back we need to go to fill
in those knowledge gaps. That also means how advanced we go is also based on
need more practice and reinforcement, I will give you practice problems and
3. Diagnosing the Problem
and diagnose what is going wrong with your thinking and reasoning to figure out what is going on. This is far more complex than
most parents and students realize. Parents and students love to blame “the
teacher doesn’t teach” as the primary cause, but actually it isn’t. There are
many different levels and reasons why students are having issues, from
confusing different concepts or making mistakes they don’t realize, to not paying
attention and jumping to conclusions, or just not knowing the material.
- I know
if you aren't getting it but you think you do. The most common mistake of
students is that they insistently think they are right, but can’t seem to get
the correct answer. Also many students get the right answer by guessing or
4. Solving Problems & Answering
other tutors who are essentially talking textbooks or talking web-pages that
just answer questions, what I provide is real
teaching and learning. You will not learn just by listening and looking at
answers. You will learn by thinking about what you are supposed to do and
then doing it. I will push you to think so
that you understand not only WHAT to do but also WHY you are doing it.
You get CLEAR,
SIMPLE, and CORRECT solutions and explanations to problems. You won't get any
confusing explanations or answers that don't make sense. You will learn the
What you learn goes beyond just
math or SAT or ACT: real critical thinking, problem solving, analytical
skills, and organizational and proper study skills necessary to succeed in
college and in life. These are lessons that you do not learn in school or
There are Many Wrong Ways
1. Talking textbooks
Teaching isn’t just answering
questions. Most students don’t know what they don’t know. An answer or explanation
to a problem will be incomprehensible without the prior knowledge that it’s
2. Incompetent / inexperienced / bad teaching &
Poor teaching results in confusing
or complex incomprehensible explanations. Often you get a “talking textbook”
who simply reads off a solution / answer that you could have just read on
your own, or watched on YouTube.
3. Tutors who can’t figure out what you are doing wrong
Without knowing what a student is
doing wrong there is no way to fix the problem
4. Group Tutoring ( 2 to 5 students ) a logistical disorganized mess designed to
rake in profits
You thought you were getting
private tutoring, but it’s actually a small group of students.
It's impossible to properly teach
anything when you have 2 - 5 kids all working on different problems and at
different ability levels. This is even WORSE than a class because at least in
a class everyone is doing with same stuff and going through the same
5. Wasting valuable time that you paid for
Other tutors waste valuable lesson
time by starting lessons late and ending early, going over material you
already know, talking very slowly and losing the student’s attention.
6. Random tutors
Often with tutoring companies you
get random tutors: Tutor Jenny one day, Tutor Sam the next day. They don’t
know you that well, and don’t know what you have already learned and covered.
7. Tutors who suddenly quit on you
With other places, when you signed up
you got Tutor Jenny. But Jenny quit after a few weeks, and now you end up
with Tutor Fred.
With me, you get a seamless
continuity from lesson to lesson. I know what your problem areas are, I know
what we did last time, and I know what we will be doing this time.

Here's what's changing and what's staying the same. Major changes to the SAT
are here. The exam is shifting to a digital format and shrinking to about two
hours in length. The College Board has presented these as student-friendly
changes, with Priscilla Rodriguez (vice president of College Readiness
Assessments at the College Board) saying, "The digital SAT will be
easier to take, easier to give, and more relevant." And so far,
reactions from students who sat for pilot exams and the international
administrations this spring have indeed been positive. Here's the timeline of
the rollout of the shorter, digital SAT: March 2023: International test
centers began administering the digital SAT. Fall 2023: All test centers
administered the digital PSAT. March 2024: Test centers in the
