SAT Reading Score

I had no problem with SAT Math and Writing, but I could never seem to figure out the Reading section of the SAT. Richard was a revelation for me! Where before the reading section felt confusing and random, I now had an idea of what was going on and correct way to solve the questions. My mind craves logic and consistency and so Richard’s method of solving questions really fitted nicely with my learning style. Richard also pointed out that I had some gaps in my vocabulary and so he gave me this awesome little vocab book, which really helped with covering the gaps in my vocab knowledge.

SAT Composite Score

Richard really goes well beyond what is required of him as a teacher. I particularly liked the very structured way he taught all of the classes. Although there is a lot of homework to finish, you can really feel yourself improving when you get your homework scores! When I was studying alone, I felt kind of isolated and that I was facing this massive task alone. With Richard I never felt like that. I felt like he was always there making sure I was giving my best and prepping in the most efficient way possible. Most of my success is due to Richard’s kind patience.

SAT Composite Score

I worked with Richard on improving my SAT for about two months. I found him an excellent teacher who motivated me well and gave me the advice I needed! At the time I was a bit depressed about my preparation for the exam. I had tried a few other teachers and studying on my own but nothing was working. Richard provided me with a clear roadmap to solving questions (particularly in reading) that made me a lot more confident in my ability to solve questions. After solving a lot of tests and reviewing my mistakes with Richard, I felt my confidence grow. His essay template was also awesome! Thanks again Richard!

Richard helped my daughter when it seemed that she had given up all hope of improving. His methods worked wonders and I was impressed with the overall change in my daughter’s attitude toward SAT.

All of the above, I believe, makes me an exceptionally qualified partner for students who are chasing that dream score!
