I am a friendly and energetic tutor with an extensive history in helping learners develop their ability to grasp material and improve their academic and test performance. I have a bachelor’s degree from Rutger’s University and I tutor grades 5-College.

My tutoring style:

I use a critical thinking skills approach to assess students’ issues and determine the most appropriate tools and methods for improvement.

Success story:

I was approached by a HS football coach to help his athletes prepare for the ACT and SAT to meet their required score goals for scholarship offers. In one case, a student was being offered a scholarship package to an Ivy League university on the condition that he improve his ACT score by three points within a three week deadline.  The student really wanted to qualify for the scholarship offer, but as a student athlete in the midst of senior year, finding the time and motivation to prepare - for a test he thought he was done with -  was difficult.  Together, we took a small amount of time to commiserate over the unexpected challenge.  Then, we discussed his current responsibilities to develop a reasonable practice schedule.  Next, we delved into some practice to identify his most pressing test issues, which allowed us to establish the most practice plan.  Six weeks later - he, his parents, and I all celebrated when he met his score goal!

Hobbies and interests:

I love all genres of music.  I can rock with anything from chamber music to hip hop.  I also love documentaries, especially crime documentaries; I can watch them for hours!
