I've been teaching standardized test prep for over 15 years and teaching in the classroom for 10. I've always enjoyed coaching students to take tests, because I can help them realize how to find patterns, crack codes and see the whole structure behind the puzzle. Getting better at tests is like any other sport. You have to train better, become efficient, increase confidence and develop basic skills that sharpen your thinking.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I feel like my job as a test coach (and as a teacher) is to break material down into manageable pieces for you to absorb and retain quickly. My students say I'm "good at explaining." I pride myself in breaking things down so you understand the big picture, but also have a blueprint of steps to follow to easily figure out the problem.
