I am so grateful to have had Horace as my LSAT tutor. Not only is he very intelligent and very experienced in all things test taking, he really helped me look at and approach the problems from a different perspective. I felt that he really cared about my improvement and put in a lot of effort into each meeting we had. He answered my questions, listened to my concerns, and always helped me through things I didn't understand with a positive attitude. Horace is also very funny so it was always a fun time. I would highly recommend Horace for anyone who is looking for help studying for the LSAT. Thanks Horace for all your help!! -- Gabi.Oct 19, 2019Verified

I hired Horace for a few lessons to boost my verbal gmat score. He is very professional and hardworking, and has a fun personality. He is knowledgeable about the subject, and was able to spot my weaknesses quickly. He also puts in a lot of time outside of just the lesson itself to put together question sets and review work. I thought the value for the money was great too, some other tutors were charging up to $200 more than him. Overall it was a positive experience and I’d work with him again.Dec 10, 2018Verified
He made math understandable and was willing to work over problems in different ways to help me better understand how to do it myself. Thanks.Nov 7, 2017Verified
Horace undoubtedly helped improve my analytical writing for the GRE. After scoring too low for the my graduate program's requirement, I knew I needed coaching. Beyond his likeable personality, Horace proved to be an expert. He provided manageable homework, flexible scheduling and focused plans for both writing sections. At first I didn't know if I could afford his rates, but I'm happy to say it was worth the money.Oct 1, 2017Verified
Horace is an excellent coach, especially for those aiming to score in the 99th percentile on the GMAT. Horace is able to offer valuable insight in regards to both strategy and content to help you achieve your goals. He also consistently provides targeted feedback to improve areas of weakness. I highly recommend Horace to anyone preparing to take the exam.May 7, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$100/hour for online sessions with negotiable discounts for off-hours (before 4pm on weekdays)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I pride myself on providing an individualized experience but generally start in one of two ways. For exams such as the ACT and LSAT for which students may have access to past efforts (their questions and answers), I’ll often ask for those to be provided so that content related opportunities can be identified. I’ll follow up that analysis with a more detailed conversation with the student centered on their own experience of the test and particular question types/content areas. For exams such as the GMAT and GRE where such data tends to be much less granular or the SAT where it is virtually non-existent, or for students who have not yet sat the test in question, we’ll begin with a diagnostic test which will give us both a baseline for our efforts and help us discover opportunities for improvement.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been involved in high stakes academic competition since my days representing my elementary school at the national spelling bee and my church at our National Sunday School competition (3 time champion, twice runner up). Since then I have competed successfully in National Mathematics competitions and successfully navigated a wide array of professional and academic exams. My success in these exams have helped me gain admission to our nation’s most selective universities and job opportunities at elite consultancies. Teaching and coaching I learned thru apprenticeship. As a teaching assistant, I learned from professors committed to motivating highly ambitious and motivated students. As a track and field coach, I learned from my own coaches in high school and college. As a student preparing for management consulting interviews but coming from a non-traditional background (my academic training is in History), I learned from consultants who had had success and learned along the way as I successful coached fellow non-MBA students. I learned even more as I paid it forward while coaching aspiring consultants at universities in the North East and the Midwest. I have continued this learning by doing as I helped people preparing for more traditional standardized tests and young entrepreneurs and college aspirants.
