I began teaching about fifteen years ago while still a student at Princeton. When not tutoring, I can be found behind a piano keyboard writing music for opera and theater stages.
MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE
I have prepared more than four hundred kids for college and high school exams over the last decade. My students improve by an average of 150-200 points per section on the SAT, PSAT or SHSAT, 7-10 points per section on the ACT, and 2-3 stanine points per section on the ISEE. I have also worked with special needs students and kids falling behind considerably in school due to challenging circumstances at home and pride myself in being able to inspire even the most uninterested student.
MY TEACHING STYLE
I employ the Socratic Method abundantly in my lessons, trying to create a pace that is at the same time challenging and encouraging. Check out my blog for more on that!
