"My philosophy about test prep is largely based around the understanding that the material is all doable, with the right timing and the right approach. My goal is to teach students to tackle the questions that are in their favor, and minimize those that will just limit their time or frazzle them. Knowing the tricks the test-writers will attempt and knowing how to manage your time is half the battle. I've been known to work through LSAT games and SAT math problems while sleeping -- literally."

I have helped students who have difficulty retaining material or focusing on homework and studying, and who lack organizational skills.

"The mental leap from symbols on a page to a tangible function of one's life was the part of the education system that I feel was not out right taught but would have benefited my class mates immensely. My love of learning and understanding is what I bring to every student I tutor. I try to show my students why the number pi is used rather than telling them it equals 3.14. I look for parallels between the material in front of us and their own life so that tutoring isn't just an extension of a lecture period."
