SAT & ACT Perfect Score Expert

I grew up and attended college in Australia, but moved to the USA for grad school and have fallen in love with America.

Having worked in education for a number of years before grad school, I felt the passion to return to helping students achieve their potential.

In particular, I specialize in helping students master the SAT and ACT. Over the years, I have developed a foolproof method of attacking these tests that have produced amazing results for all my students. Using these methods, I have scored perfectly on both tests and have even trained students as young as 14 to achieve their own perfect scores.
