All SAT / ACT lessons are booked hourly.  There is no SAT or ACT course on the calendar because it will be tailored to your hours!

Recent success stories include an 800 on the SAT Math 2 Subject Test and a student who brought her ACT score from 23 to 28 and was accepted to Harvard.

The recommended course of study for the SAT or ACT is a full summer, working with me 2 – 4 hours per week in addition to homework.  We use the first half of the summer to diagnose and to review material at the student’s individualized level.  We use Khan Academy for most of the homework.  The second half of the summer is devoted to practicing actual test questions and time management.  I am also available for SAT or ACT test prep during the school year, though I only recommend it for students who are keeping up their grades and have time left over.  In this case, I recommend 1 – 2 hours per week with me, and I do not assign homework unless specifically requested.  The best way to prepare for the SAT or ACT is to do well in school!!!

Yep, we’ll work on essays too.

I do not offer group lessons for the SAT or ACT.  If you and one friend are interested in SAT / ACT lessons, I will reduce your rates by 25%.

My SAT / ACT Experience

My official SAT score is 1580, including a perfect 800 on the math section (score report here).
My official ACT score is a perfect 36, including perfect 36’s on the English, math, and reading sections.  (Score report here).
My very first teaching position was with an SAT test-prep company in 1990.  I have been tutoring standardized exams on-and-off since then, continuously since 2001, and have been active with SAT and ACT tutoring especially in the 2010s.
