About this tutor

I was accepted to many prestigious Universities, including Ivy League colleges and UC Berkeley, largely based on my SAT and other standardized test scores. I did not have a personal tutor back then, so I understand what it takes to train for these standardized tests. I love to learn, and want to show students what how to prepare for the Ivy Leagues, and lifelong learning.

I love teaching, and seeing genuine progress is very rewarding. Anybody can memorize facts and figures, but changing mindsets is the best practice.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, I want to layout the specifics for why are we doing what we are doing. If students can not see the big picture then they will struggle to progress. Second, I make sure students know that success with tutoring is a two way street, and since I will not take the SAT for them, they will have to put in the effort during and after sessions. Finally, I try not to overwhelm students, because most challenges can be overcome if things are taken one step at a time.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was accepted to many many prestigious Universities, including Ivy Schools, and UC Berkeley. As a mostly self taught student, I had to learn the hard way when it came to prepping for exams, but the knowledge I gained is very powerful, and I would like to share that knowledge with my students.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I work with parents and students to determine what the standard hourly rate is for their area and charge accordingly. If parents or students pay in advance for a bulk number of hours I can also discount my rate, depending on the number of hours paid for.


How did you get started teaching?

I have been tutoring students since I was a student in High School. I love helping others, and word around school spread that I could help in a large variety of subjects. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with many different skill levels of students. One of the main success factors I have found is student motivation, regardless of natural talents.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be wary of tutors that guarantee results, because success with tutoring requires a degree self motivation. Although a tutor can show you the best practices, it takes practice to solidify this knowledge. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students must organize their questions based on specific SAT prep questions, and general learning/studying questions. The SAT may be daunting, but it is essentially a test of how well you study. This means that questions of what is on the exam may be less enlightening than questions of how to approach the exam.
