Experience

Because standardized testing has become one of the most critical tools for everything from getting into college to achieving collegiate success, I am very passionate about tutoring others on how to prepare for them. I believe that everybody has the ability to make significant improvements in their test-taking abilities if they prepare themselves on how to take them. Beyond that, preparing properly for standardized testing can build confidence by showing students that if you put some effort into it, you can achieve your goals. I graduated from Vassar College with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. In the time since my graduation, I have been working with several different types of learners, including teaching low-income immigrants how to file their taxes, working with children, and preparing high school students on how best to take the ACT and SAT. I have experience teaching test preparation for several different tests, including the ACT, SAT, and GMAT. I particularly like to help get students ready for the writing areas of the test and the portions of the test when reading critically is necessary.When I am not working with students, I am an avid listener of podcasts, live music, golfing, and watching the Chicago Bulls.
