Thank you for visiting. I’m Ronnie and I’ve been helping students prepare for the SAT for the past ten years. I have worked with some of the best test prep companies and have developed an extremely effective method of SAT preparation.
Why Private Instruction?
Different students can excel in different learning environments, but it is my experience that with the SAT, most students see the most improvement with private tutoring, as opposed to classroom instruction.
While SAT classes are typically less expensive than private instruction overall, the cost per hour of relevant instruction is almost always higher.
In my experience as a classroom instructor, I’ve observed that much time is spent on tasks that could just as easily be done “off the clock” such as taking and grading tests and quizzes. Moreover, since a classroom instructor must cover all the bases, every student will at some point encounter a lesson that is simply unneeded—and the more advanced a student is, the more often this holds true.
My SAT tutoring experience was great! I had been stuck with the same score twice already and was afraid of getting a 1990 again. Within two months of hard work, I was able to increase my score 120 points to a 2110. We primarily focused on critical reading and writing, and I believe Ronnie’s method of taking many tests and writing down all the words I was not familiar with actually works! Thank you for helping me reach my goal!
I had set an SAT goal that would guarantee my admission to my top university choices and increase my scholarship opportunities, and after only seven sessions with Ronnie my goals were met. I saw an over 100 point increase, bringing my total score to 1950. I appreciated that he focused on the areas I needed help with, and still strengthened other areas of the SAT test. The time and money spent have already paid off.
