Introduction: I offer great tutoring at a reasonable price. I have experience with the SAT, SSAT, ISEE, LSAT, and other tests, and not only understand how to take the tests, but how to teach the material to students in a way they can understand. I can answer questions that relate to test prep and academic subjects that only a person with "real world" experience can give - such as "Why do I need to know this stuff, anyway?" Finally, I have a sense of humor, and can engage and entertain while teaching, without being a complete goofball or pushover who doesn't get the job done. This may sound clichéd and cheesy, but it's true. I enjoy reaching young minds and helping people of all ages learn and get ahead in life. It's nice to help someone learn a needed skill at a crucial time in life - what a person learns while young can open doors to a new world of opportunities, and provide needed skilled people to the world.

I sent John my essays for the grad school application. He did a stellar job rewriting them so that the essays can stay under the word limit while none of the original messages were removed. He also sent the revision to me two days after I hired him, which is extremely efficient! I'll definitely work with John again!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It's not complex. I charge an hourly rate. It's a little more if you live far from me, since I'll have to cover my cost of transportation from my place to your place, or wherever we're meeting. Basically, I just want to give you good work at a good rate.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically, we discuss the goal of the tutoring (e.g., getting a certain score on the SAT, admission to a certain college, obtaining an athletic scholarship). I review the student's previous test scores, homework, papers, whatever is relevant. Then we do a diagnostic test pertinent to the subject and/or review a test the student has done in advance. Then we set up a study plan with goals and steps to reach those goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I always buy the most recent test prep books and read the news regarding tests.
