Tutor Uncommon

 My name is George Echo Georgas, and I am a former teacher who specializes in test prep, having worked in the SAT/ACT/GRE arenas for 15 years. Although an English teacher by pedigree, I am equally comfortable tutoring in the verbal, math, or science areas of the different college placement exams. I actually tutor algebra, geometry, and pre-calc as singular disciplines, so that typifies my expertise therein. Test prep is all about reminding students about what they may have forgotten, and then it's about showing them ways to circumvent traditional channels. I show them the traditional ways to do problems and then alternative, often more time-efficient, ways. In critical reading, I show them how to more strategically navigate passages, while also preparing them for how to deal with the very quarrelsome inference questions. I also reveal tendencies of wrong answers and how to guess when faced with two seemingly correct answers.   I offer all my students a free editing/sculpting of their college applications/essays. As long as I am given ample notice or it is a fairly quick edit, I gleefully correct and, where necessary and desired, hone it to a resonantly brilliant hue! For free, as I said...

I recommend the following books for test prep: the Official College Board SAT (the one for about $22 is fine, as you don't really need the one with a disk), the McGraw-Hill SAT book (about $22, whether 2010-2013 editions), and/or the red-backed official REAL ACT textbook (about $35). I like what Princeton Review does with both of these tests as well, in case you inherit one of these for free. All you need is the first SAT book I mentioned, but the others are listed as notable supplements.
  
Additionally, excellent references from scores of parents, spanning numerous area and boarding schools, are available upon request.  843-343-9989
