Introduction: **Please note my rate. Serious inquiries only, please.** Hello! I am an experienced and highly trained private professional tutor of 8 years, specializing in all sections of the SAT, ACT, and College Admissions Prep. I am a Princeton graduate where I was an English major. I myself scored a 2350 out of 2400 on my SAT: 800 Reading, 800 Writing, 750 Math. LOGISTICS: I am based in Manhattan and I have been tutoring exclusively remotely, and across the world, for 3 years. I use Facetime, Zoom or Skype. I am flexible as I tutor all 7 days a week. I provide all of the necessary materials. PAYMENT: Because of COVID-19, I am happy to offer a special discounted rate: I am charging $250/hr for my services, a big discount from my normal rate of $325/hr. Test Prep sessions are the standard 90 minutes and are prorated. One HIGHLIGHT of my test prep: I pride myself on having a lengthy list of important tricks and strategies that you are highly unlikely to find elsewhere as I have developed most of them myself. In fact, it is not uncommon that my students' scores improve an equivalent of 80-110 points on the SAT/3-4 points on the ACT after just ONE session. ADMISSION RESULTS: with my test prep and college admission prep, I am thrilled to have helped over 400 students over the years who have gained admission to top schools like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Northwestern, UMichigan, Dartmouth, Amherst, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, UPenn, and Tufts among likely every college (across ALL tiers) that you have heard of. I stand by my work 100% and look forward to impressing my clients. I hope to help and discuss further!

Caroline worked with my son weekly to prepare for his ACT. She was so knowledgeable about skills and strategies needed to do well. She was patient and knew which topics to focus on most. The grammar and mechanics he learned will stay with him through college and life. I would definitely recommend Caroline to family and friends.

Caroline was great in helping my daughter break down ideas and focus on a college essay topic. Her ability to assist my daughter in writing about a topic that was authentic helped secure several college acceptances.

My son Maxwell Vindman worked with Caroline for 8 weeks prior to his SAT. He received a 1320 which is a 120 point improvement over his first practice exam. We are very pleased with Maxwell’s performance and would recommend Caroline to anyone preparing for an SAT.

My SAT score went up 130 points within 2 months of tutoring with Caroline. I found her various strategies in the reading and writing section really helpful in improving my score! I would highly recommend to anyone who is having trouble improving their score.

Caroline was instrumental in helloing my son reshape and polish his essay. She took the time to get to know him and the story he was telling to ensure she provided good feedback. She not only knows a great deal about the English language and writing, but she was able to further direct my son to more thoroughly answer the prompt and highlight parts of the story that demonstrated growth. Caroline was supportive but honest, and her style was more Socratic (asking questions) to help my son write his best essay. He just got accepted ED to University of Pennsylvania so we are thrilled.

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

    -I charge $250/hr for test prep. (Discounted from $325/hr) -I charge $250/hr for college admissions prep. (Discounted from $325/hr) *Because of these challenging times, I am pleased to offer these big discounts.*

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

    For College Admissions Prep, please contact me for detailed information. Standardized Test Process: I like to look through the student's past tests and scores (if they have any) to evaluate strengths and weaknesses and gauge improvement potential. I discuss the major test strategies and make sure the student starts to employ any she's not utilizing already. I assign practice tests for weekly homework and go over the incorrect problems in the following session. I have my students cut out the problems they get wrong and paste them in a spiral notebook so they have a central place to study--my students love this tactic and it helps them get great results.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Every single type, including those with learning differences, ASD, and IEPs; I tailor their prep to suit their individual needs.
