Hello, First of all, I want to thank all my previous students/parents who have written their feedback and have helped me become one of the most reviewed and highly rated tutors on universitytutor. It is very humbling to me, and I am more encouraged than ever to dedicate myself fully to helping more students and changing more lives. I have more than 10 years of experience tutoring for standardized tests preparation and math courses. I have provided both one-on-one and small group lessons to 300+ students for standardized tests ACT, GRE, GMAT, SAT, SSAT, ISEE, Selective Enrollment, GED, employment tests etc. My particular specialties are the GMAT, ACT, GRE and SAT tests, and I tutored the vast majority of my previous students for these four tests. Many of my previous ACT/GRE students have gotten admissions into Ivy League schools, The University of Chicago, Northwestern University and other top ranked universities, and more than a dozen of my GMAT clients have been admitted to the Booth, Harvard, Kellogg, Stanford, Duke, and University of Michigan business schools. However, I have felt (and will always feel) most rewarded when students who start with very little hope and confidence on their math and test-taking skills eventually get admissions into a college, a graduate school, or a business school of their choice. A huge part of success on standardized tests has to do with timing. I specialize in shortcuts and more intuitive methods of solving problems, which benefit not only the students who have difficulty pacing themselves and finishing tests on time but also the ambitious students who want to score very high for top-tier schools. I have experienced that, for many students, one of the greatest obstacles to learning is a lack of interest in the subject matter. I make math and science as fun and interesting as I can, so that my students become self-motivated. I also provide consultation on the emotional aspect of test-taking to students who have fear and anxiety of certain topics. Test Scores: GRE: 1510/1600 (Quant - 800, Verbal - 710) SAT: 1470/1600 (Quant - 800, Verbal - 670) IELTS: 8.5/9 Compass Test: 99, a perfect score, on each of the 11 math and 5 verbal sections Finally, I don't catch fish for you; I teach you how to fish!
