About Adam...

About me:

I am a 40-something year old SAT/ACT Tutor. That is what I am and it is something that I am very proud of. I actually have done many things that have led me to this end. In my past I have owned an Art-based business in New Mexico, designed web sites in Arizona and even owned a video game store in Vermont (obviously it's a long story). I've been around the block a few times and believe it or not, my experiences have led me to become a tutor.

Why I'm good at this:

I am good at getting the kids to relate to me. I have over 10 years of Summer Camp experience in various forms and it really has led me to understand what keeps a teenager motivated and interested. Oh, by the way, I am an absolute master of the SAT and ACT. It's really not all that hard once you know your stuff and I can assure you, after tutoring 3000+ kids over 12 years, NOBODY knows this test better than I do.

My education:

I have studied at Temple University (Tyler School of Art), The University of Pittsburgh and Temple University's Rome campus. In the end, I graduated from Temple University in 1994 with a BFA degree. In addition, I became a certified PA Teacher K-12 (although I am a full-time tutor now).

Finding myself as a tutor:

I've been tutoring one thing or another for as long as I can remember. In high school, if you needed help with your math homework, I was your guy. Standardized tests have always intrigued me. What is it about these tests that freaks so many people out? I had to figure it out. It took me some time, but in the end I prevailed! I've mastered every possible SAT/ACT method out there and integrated the most effective methods into my program. Each fall, I go to the bookstore and buy all of the new SAT/ACT books and manuals just to see if anybody has come up with anything new... by the way, they haven't.

Other things you should know about me:

I am a serious Softball and Hockey player and I play in adult leagues for both sports. I also play the bass guitar and I have been obsessed with the band 'Duran Duran' since 1982.
