"I took a course, got private math tutoring, took practice tests, and came up with essay prompts. Ultimately, I got a very strong score, ranking me in the 96th percentile. I have since graduated cum laude from Tufts University with a BA in English and minors in Art History and Media Studies. As a member of the National Honor Society and Peer Leaders, I decided to use my experience to help others. I knew there had to be other students out there who were extremely bright and simply didn’t excel at standardized tests."

" My teaching style features visual learning, mnemonics, and hierarchical organization of material. I find that hierarchically cataloguing information by topic and sub-topic helps students retain material, as students are not simply memorizing, but are understanding how concepts relate to one another. More personally, my hobbies include tennis, movies, and travel. I also love trivia and 90's music."

"The simplest form is usually the foundation to it all. I have taught and/or tutored students from 3rd to 12th grade and taught at public high schools as well as private elementary programs. I love working with students of all ages. I am very familiar with the school systems and have developed my own teaching approach that leaves the students that I work with feeling a sense of accomplishment and ownership of the material. I have found that this is the key to lasting and continuing progress."
