I am a native New Yorker; I was born and raised in Brooklyn and currently live in Manhattan. I went to NYU and finished my degree in just three years, thanks to AP credit. Now I work as a tutor and an actor/singer/dancer and director/choreographer. When I’m not working with students or working on a show, I love to play the drums, read, and hang out with Chowder (the best tuxedo cat in the world).


I have been preparing students for their standardized tests for 15 years. I have helped over 400 students get the scores they want on their SAT, ACT, ISEE/SSAT, and AP English Literature and Language tests. My extensive background in the arts helps me connect and communicate with all kinds of learners, including students with LDs, students with test anxiety, students aiming for perfect scores, and students who consider themselves “bad test takers.”


There is no such thing as a “bad test taker,” because the skills needed to succeed on standardized tests are learnable. If a student feels like a “bad test taker,” it probably just means they haven’t learned the skills necessary for this test yet; that’s where tutoring comes in. I believe that personalized one-on-one tutoring is the best way to move test scores and grades. I meet students where they are and tailor their program to their individual needs.
