Customized test preparation to give your child a competitive edge
I offer one-on-one, semi-private and/or group tutoring for the following exams:
Navigating the complicated admissions process
Navigating the application process for school admission can be stressful and confusing. Test preparation is step one on the journey toward receiving that coveted acceptance letter from your child’s dream private middle school, high school or college. I welcome the opportunity to provide your family with support during the entire admissions process.
Test preparation: individual assessment
Before meeting with me, your child will take an initial diagnostic exam. Many test-preparation programs charge to administer this practice test, but I feel that this is an extra expense for parents. I can guide you through the process of simulating this test-taking experience in the comfort of your own home.
I will review your child’s diagnostic exam results and create a customized program that will focus on his or her specific needs. As the program continues, your child will take one additional practice test to ensure that he or she is progressing as expected.
My test preparation program covers standardized test-taking skills such as timing, guessing strategy and question interpretation. My materials are updated frequently to reflect the latest developments on each exam.
Easing test anxiety
My Master’s level specialized training in psychology provides me with a unique perspective on managing and easing test anxiety. This sets me apart from other test preparation programs and contributes to my students’ measurable success.
Support with mock interviews and application essays
In addition to teaching your child the tools to achieve a high test score, I offer support with mock interviews and with drafting and editing application essays for both you and your child.
Guiding students through the process of drafting personal statements is a delicate balance between maintaining the student’s “voice” while making sure that the essay is grammatically correct. I like to serve as the “bookends.” I help the student with brainstorming and outlining, allow the student to write on his or her own at home and then re-enter the process for editing. I find that students and parents appreciate this approach and are satisfied with the final results.
