Whether you are a student, a parent, or a counselor, there is something here for you. I offer private, one-on-one tutoring for students preparing for diagnostic tests.

For over 15 years, I’ve helped high school students prepare for the ACT, ACT Plan, PSAT, SAT and the SAT subject tests in Math and Literature. I’ve tutored college students for the GMAT, GRE, and LSAT. Almost everyone can benefit from tutoring, especially when it comes to Standardized Test taking.

Diagnostic test taking is different from the tests one takes in school. A number of people think they are “bad” at “standardized tests” when the truth is, they’ve never learned how to take them. Often, the techniques and strategies for scoring well on these tests are NOT taught in schools. The key is you have to learn the techniques and then actually USE them.

What I have learned over that time is that there is no one-fits-all-plan. Some students require a session or two and are fine on their own. Others require more supervision or “motivation”, which I am happy to provide. Still others may have taken a prep class before, but need some brush up in a certain area. After a phone interview to discuss your specific needs, I can develop a plan to fit your needs. For more information about the services I provide, visit Tutoring Classes.

The most important thing you can do to prepare is to take real, previously administered tests. You can read more about this by clicking on Test Prep Books.
