I founded College Hill Coaching in 1990 with a stable of tutors from Brown, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Columbia. Since then, I have tutored thousands of students from across the country and internationally—including over 1200 National Merit and AP Scholars—who have gone on to excel at colleges like Princeton, Stanford, Harvard, Brown, Dartmouth, Columbia, Duke, Cornell, Pomona, Tulane, Bucknell, Penn, Tufts, Middlebury, Williams, and Oxford.
You will receive a custom tutorial program based on your goals, needs, and time frame. I can help you to prepare for a test next week or a standardized test three months from now. My goal is to make you feel more empowered as a learner and more successful as a test-taker. I will take the time to get to know you and to find that spark that will make you love what you're learning.
The Best SAT Books
in the Industry
For over 16 years, my SAT preparation guides have become the standard for thousands of tutors and SAT prep courses throughout the country. The latest guides, McGraw-Hill's SAT, 6 SAT Practice Tests, and Conquering the SAT Writing are top sellers in the United States, China, India, and even Azerbaijan!
The New York Times calls McGraw-Hill's SAT "a sympathetic, holistic approach to soothing the fevered student brain."
The Eight Dimensions of Learning
Learning is about much more than just knowledge and skills. Real competency requires training in six other essential dimensions of learning: executive ability, emotional managment, problem-solving, communication, awareness, and creativity.
My tutorial focuses on all eight dimensions of learning in order to help you become a strong, confident, independent lifelong learner.

[My daughter (Pomona '11)] has enjoyed an exceptional experience with you. Her success in math this year attests to and your ability to motivate a student who has had only marginal success in the past, even with tutoring. And her SAT scores are beyond her dreams!

[Our daughter (Harvard '15)] has learned to persist with a subject that she found difficult, and there was a complementary 'spill over' effect to her other classes!

Excellent teaching techniques! [My son (Brown '18)] has always been an excellent student, but you have taken him to a whole new level.
