Tutoring and Admissions Prep from a PhD/Ivy League Salutatorian (New York City)

offered in person
offered virtually
I have a PhD in the Social Sciences from Duke and am a BA graduate and former Salutatorian from an Ivy League University. I have been tutoring students and preparing them for college and graduate school admissions for the last decade. I tutor for the SAT, SAT Subject, PSAT, SSAT, AP, and GRE exams, and am also a writing editor and application coach, having worked with dozens of students to finesse their admissions essays and materials. Students I have tutored and coached through admissions have received acceptance over the years to Harvard, Princeton, Yale Graduate School of Art, Cornell, and CalArts, as well as many other esteemed institutions.

My work is now conducted entirely online. Usually, for students seeking exam prep (for any of the below-listed exams, as well as others), we hold Zoom or live sessions to practice answering sample questions, rehearse test theory, and cover thematic material. For admissions work and essay prep, our work is a combination of Zoom meetings, phone calls, and written exchanges that we conduct across the longer writing and polishing of an admissions application.

All of my tutoring is customized to each student and the nature of their needs. I design schedules and fee-packages based on what is of greatest use to my students and of most interest to those who are supporting them. A 20-minute phone call to discuss your goals and what our shared work might involve is always complimentary.
