Expert tutor with a Harvard BA, Boston College JD, and M.Ed. from Simmons. I am seeking just a few new students. I have rave reviews from the past 7 years of tutoring. Student scores on SAT have typically increased from 100 to 250 points! I offer reasonable rates and if you mention this ad, you can get 5 lessons for the cost of 4. I am also offering semi-private small group rates.
Most students in middle and high school need help with the challenging standardized test and application process. At the same time, my lessons and strategies provide skill building for longer term benefits.
This is your opportunity to hire a professional, skilled, reliable tutor for your student. Parents and students alike find me helpful, flexible and good at assessing what each individual needs. The lessons are tailored to each student.
You will find I am a patient, dynamic and dedicated tutor, and I enjoy seeing my students gain enthusiasm as well as better test scores.
I tutor all sections of the SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, TOEFL, and for school classes as well.
Test preparation often generates a lot of stress, and one goal of our work is to minimize stress while mastering techniques and strategies to increase confidence and skill. My students love to work with me on schoolwork, test prep and especially application essays. The lessons are intense and I give homework.
Lessons: I prefer 90-minute sessions although some prefer one hour. My rates are competitive - especially if you prepay a package of 10 or more hours. I am based in Newton Centre, and I can meet at a library, at your home, or at my home.
Dozens of my students have succeeded in raising their scores by 25% or more, and have been admitted to many Ivy and prestigious universities and prep schools.
Right now, I have openings on some weekday afternoons and Sundays.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Here is a reference from one of my enthusiastic clients:
"Monica provided SAT and ACT tutoring for my daughter and was very helpful. She has strong interpersonal skills and is capable and knowledgeable in all areas of the exams, including approaches to the essay/writing portion. Monica often provided extra, helpful articles about test-taking approaches, and was available for questions outside of formal tutoring sessions also. Monica was skilled at identifying which areas the tutoring needed to focus on by reviewing completed problems in detail in advance of tutoring sessions. My daughter's scores improved after tutoring with Monica; in one section, over 100 points!"
