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.
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.
