Harvard graduate in NYC area tutoring SAT, ACT, History, English, and more!

Methodology

I am a proud New Yorker and a recent graduate of Harvard College, where I worked for nearly three years as a peer tutor at the Bureau of Study Counsel, helping fellow undergraduates with test preparation, essay writing and editing, study habits, and course material comprehension. My areas of particular expertise are standardized tests (SAT, ACT, AP Exams, SAT II Subject Tests, GRE, LSAT, etc.), History (American and World), and English.

I observed with tremendous pride the success and growing confidence of my tutees, and am excited to continue in this line of work now that he has graduated.

I am also uniquely qualified to offer college admissions counselling, having received acceptance offers from Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, and a host of other top universities.
