Experience

It is an uncontested fact that Asian students score very high on the SAT/GMAT/TOEFL/IELTS. The keys are powerful strategies + intensive practice! Our SAT/GMAT/TOEFL/IELTS prep courses consist of: general SAT/GMAT/TOEFL prep strategies (for Verbal, math, and essays ) + test taking strategies (e.g. elimination, pacing yourself, read the answer choices vertically...etc.)+ speed reading strategies+ analytical reading strategies+vocabulary building strategies... among others :) We have powerful strategies to build GMAT/SAT/TOEFL/IELTS vocabulary (50 - 100 words a day), help you double your reading speed,and tackle sentence completion, critical reasoning, sentence correction,and reading comprehension...etc. We also provide prompt analysis, templates, composing strategies to help you substantially improve your GMAT/GMAT/TOEFL essays. All strategies will be demonstrated and practiced through real test questions. In order to teach GMAT/SAT/TOEFL/IELTS prep effectively, the instructor needs to : identify the patterns, rules, and strategies for each type of questions in the test; articulate and explain them clearly to the students; and demonstrate the problem solving process of test questions through workout examples. This is exactly how our instructors differ from others: Based on our years of teaching experience, we identify successful test prep and test taking strategies for the GMAT/SAT/TOEFL/IELTS prep. We introduce and demonstrate those strategies to the students before having them practice the strategies until they become proficient in using the strategies in the test questions. We always conduct needs analysis for our students and administer a diagnostic test to assess the students' strengths and weaknesses on the test. We use the most credible and official learning materials for test prep, combined with a collection of our handouts, tips, and online materials. Our study plan and lesson plan are individualized so as to address each student's needs. We are a teaching,writing, and editing team of Ivy League PhD's (with strong publication records) and MA's who have over 10 years of experience in teaching test prep,academic writing and editing. We also help our clients with their term papers, theses, admissions essays for college, MBA programs and graduate schools across more than 20 disciplines.
