============ Typical Results: “Jeff was patient with me through every practice problem, and it was all worth it on test day. It felt second nature, I barely had to even think about the strategies and skills…I am very thankful to be in the position that I am in!” Allison — GRE Student “Jeff was professional, dependable, and came to the first tutoring session prepared to help where our son needed it the most.” Parents of Oglethorpe High School Student Studying for the SAT ============ The vast majority of the students I work with have been stressed over an upcoming standardized test. Whether they have test-taking anxiety, trouble second-guessing their answers, or they just need a more efficient way to prepare, I specialize in helping students achieve success as they begin the next stage of their academic career. My personal tutoring philosophy is two-fold: I provide a patient, stress-free environment during sessions, and I also provide unfettered access between sessions—i.e. you're never charged any extra just for contacting me with a follow-up question! Finally, I like to offer students the option of full-service, start-to-finish tutoring options. After all, your standardized test scores are just one aspect of getting into the college or grad program of your choice. After we work together to make sure you've scored your best, we can continue working together on all your other academic needs, including start-to-finish editing and guidance on your personal statements, resumes, and application essays. And while I scored in the top 98% on the ACT & SAT, and the top 99% on the GRE, a tutor's scores aren't what ultimately matters. What ultimately matters is whether your tutor can help you achieve your own best possible score. With over seven years as a professional tutor, and over 9 years teaching college-level critical thinking courses, I have the experience necessary to help you succeed. But the recommendation of my prior students is the best indicator of my ability to help you prepare for your upcoming test: ============ “Jeff helped me accomplish my goal of 1100, which after 10 years of no formal math was quite an accomplishment!” —Doug, Small Business Owner & GRE Student “The tutoring sessions were great. Jeff were very organized and thorough. I would have not accomplished what I did without his help!” —Rachel, GRE Student ============ To find out for yourself the difference that effective tutoring can have, contact me today and we can schedule a free trial session for your upcoming test!
