About me

My SAT prep method is to teach a lot of strategy and having the student take many practice tests, which we assess in class. We work on the student's weaknesses and also boost his or her strengths so that there is a steady improvement in the student's marks and confidence. I believe that test taking is not only about verbal ability but also requires strong logical reasoning, and I work to hone these skills in the student.

I have an MFA in Creative Writing from City University, Hong Kong and an MA in Linguistics from Delhi University. I teach languages and give coaching for tests like SAT and GRE. I have been teaching for a little over 3 years.
