Frequently Asked Questions
How often do you meet with students?
I generally meet with students once per week (sometimes twice for academic support) at a regularly scheduled time.
Can you guarantee a particular score on the ACT or SAT?
To do so would be unethical. I can, however, promise to bring my years of expertise and talent to bear on the test prep process. No one is more motivated than I am to see my students reach their potential.
Does test prep really work?
I cannot make predictions about scores or promises about the outcome. I can say with confidence that in most cases test prep leads to higher scores on the major standardized tests for college admissions (SAT/ACT/PSAT). I have seen strong improvement in many cases, particularly if an individual student is motivated and willing to work hard.
What are the most important components to effective test prep?
Clear teaching. Student motivation. Practice. Good testing resources.
Do you work with small groups?
All of my tutoring occurs individually.
