Strategies to raise SAT verbal & essay scores! I can help!
I encourage you to take and score the short-answer parts on your own time, and I review with you incorrect answers and lucky guesses. As you become more alert to errors in grammar, idiom, and punctuation, your errors will decrease—you’ll also become a better writer.
There’s a good reason why the College Board now includes an essay. As one student quoted in The New York Times said, “You can’t fake good writing. If you can’t write a complete sentence, that’s going to show, and I think that’s a good thing for colleges to know.” I share with you strategies for writing high-scoring essays.

I have learned valuable techniques for writing. She taught me how to approach a topic, zero in on good examples used in essays, and organize the content of essays to make them more appealing to readers. More importantly, she taught me how to express my ideas in a simple and concise way. Now I write with confidence."

I knew very soon after Matthew began studying with Anne that my worries were over. He enjoyed the sessions, and there was clear indication of Anne's professional, methodical, and creative approach to developing his writing skills. In just a few sessions, he learned how to structure the short 25-minute essays for SAT. While developing essays for college applications, Matthew found in Anne a thoughtful and demanding advisor who helped him find the ways to express himself in the most effective way.
I would not hesitate to recommend Anne's coaching services to anybody as I already have on a few occasions."
