Boston SAT Test Prep Tutoring
The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is an exam given to high school students
who want to attend college after graduating.
While there are SAT courses in existence, I offer
personal, one-on-one lessons for high school students who want to
do well on the exam. Rather than learning in a classroom environment,
my SAT prep tutoring is tailored to the student's needs, abilities,
and skill levels. I have been helping students prepare for the SAT
for more than 20 years and I can help you excel.
background is that I have my B.Sc. degree in mathematics from
MIT and I have a Ph.D. in physics. I have published scientific

high SAT scores.

and the material targeted to the needs of the individual student.

knowledge. The SAT is not primarily a test of knowledge.)
- Techniques to overcome the tendency to make
- Processes to deepen the students' grasp of
what they already more or less know
- Training in what to do when your initial reaction
to a problem is "I don't know how to do this one."
SAT Verbal Vocabulary Tutoring
I train the student in a unique technique for
learning vocabulary words.
The various SAT verbal sections
Each category of verbal questions has one major
technique that works for it. I train the student in each of these
techniques. In each of the verbal subsections, I show the student
how to come up with an answer before looking at the 5 choices. Doing
this has enormous advantages. I show the student how to then relate
this potential answer to the 5 choices, by a strict and efficient
