Originally, I began by teaching SAT English and Math for the Princeton Review. My length and range of teaching experiences have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in both subject assimilation and standardized testing instruction. I feel extremely confident in my ability to help students feel more adept with both the content of and strategic approach to standardized tests.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

In tennis and tutoring, find out where the student is at and where he/she wants to go. Make sure the student feels comfortable with my approach and ready to improve. I then continue to build the skill base through repetition, greater appreciation for the task at hand and working with their strengths to offset the weaknesses on a regular basis.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a certified Engish educator, English and Math tutor, ESL certified and a longtime tennis coach.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Tennis lessons run from $40/50 an hour depending on how far the travel time is, whereas academic tutoring is from $50-70 an hour depending on travel and the task at hand
