Green Academics

About

I’m a Harvard graduate who has worked for 16 years as a professional private tutor of SAT/ACT, Advanced Placement Exams, and College Admissions.

Over my career I have helped some 650 bright young people—all one-on-one—take their high school exams, compose their college entrance essays, and feel passionate about their futures.

I love my job and take pride in my work. I draw from the energy and positivity of diligent students just as they draw from my experience and enthusiasm for teaching. I keep in touch with students many years after instruction and am thrilled to see their success in university and beyond.

I always offer a free 30-minute consultation about the testing and admissions process.

I’ve been tutoring professionally since 2007, so many of my former students are now living full and productive adult lives. It’s humbling and rewarding to keep in touch and track their progress. Often I learn that they have finished advanced degrees and gone on to the rewarding careers. But what satisfies me most is seeing that they’ve found a healthy and happy balance as adults and that they look back fondly at our learning together.
 
In many instances I have instructed two, three, four, or even five siblings over the course of several years.

As always with changes to standardized tests, there will be a scramble to acquire practice materials and feedback about the test in order to help people prepare ideally. It seems that overall, however, the basic content and outline of the exam isn’t significantly changing. It will still be a test of understanding the basics of Mathematics, Grammar, and Reading.
