Who is Teacher M?

What is an Academic Coach?

I am an Academic Coach which means in addition to tutoring students, I advise and guide students who are planning their academic paths. I have over 15 years of experience working with students of varying levels and goals.

SAT Specialist

I have taken hundreds of practice tests, and have taught over 1500 students the tests. I started teaching the SAT in 2001 when it was the form before the 2005 change and overseas students were required to also complete the SAT II Writing test. I taught the revised SAT from 2005 to January of this year when my students took the last offering of the test in January 2016. Currently I am developing materials and practices to attack this latest version of the SAT. My focus is on the Reading, Grammar and Essay sections. Additionally, I teach the SAT Subject TestsLiterature, World History and American History.


I have also taught the ACT for 10 years, helping students raise their Reading, English and Science scores to lift their composite scores. I have also created a new set of lessons to address the Essay changes that were enacted in October 2015.

College Application Planner

I have guided hundreds of students through choosing schools and planning their courses to prepare best for their applications. This is a process best started early so that students can take best advantage of their high school years and assemble an outstanding application.

  1. Hello, My son is using both your books on SAT reading. Thank you for the same.

    One of the decisions he is planning to make is if it is better to take SAT or ACT. What is your suggestion for him to take based on SAT/ACT Reading and Writing sections. Will preparing for SAT help with ACT also. Since he is strong in Math section, his decision will be bases on your advice

    Also, since he is in India, do you by any chance take one-on-one session for him, if so, can you provide some details around the same.

    Thank you again for the help to international test takers. I will be recommending your books here in India.
