Prepare for spring SAT and ACT exams with a compassionate, expert tutor


My students and their parents often describe me as “not just a tutor, but a life coach.” My approach is holistic, caring, patient, and effective. I support each student in developing an individualized approach specific to his or her unique needs and goals. Mindfulness and anxiety management are also part of my teaching practice.

Together, we address all aspects of the test-taking process, from content and strategy to focus, stamina and confidence. My special ability to connect with my students enables me to identify and address their challenges and help them maximize their strengths. I support students through the entire testing and admissions process, from choosing the right test, to preparing for it effectively, to school selection, essay writing, and navigating the application. I provide weekly academic support in all subjects, as well as help with organization and study skills. I also prepare middle schoolers for the ISEE, SSAT, and HSPT exams.

Since I graduated with honors from Brown University in 2001, I have tutored hundreds of students in grades K-12, with a particular focus on middle and high school students. Please visit my web site,, to learn more about my practice, and please be in touch to talk more about how I can be of help.
