For more than 30 years, I’ve followed my calling, tutoring and teaching test prep, speed-reading, study skills, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. I love my work because it enables me to connect with unique individuals and determine their best paths to learning whatever they need to.

The major tests I work on include the SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, GRE, CBEST, CSET-MSAT, and some SAT subject tests. I also work with clients on Verbal (Reading and Writing) sections of many other tests.
My tutoring programs for speed-reading, study and learning skills, grammar, writing, and vocabulary include applying the skills, strategies, and techniques to your own reading, assignments, and projects.
My programs include work on:
- Anxiety reduction for high-stakes, high-stress tests and other difficult situations
- Assessing your learning styles and how to best apply them
- Nutritional preparation to improve your focus
