I've spent my days increasing the average number of
careers Americans enter in their lives, which is
purported to be six. I have an associate degree in
journalism and worked as a reporter for the Advocate
newspapers. I have a bachelor's in English and a
master's in secondary education. Before joining
ivybound, I specialized in teaching English as a
Second Language but was also an adjunct professor
teaching freshman composition courses to both native
and non-native (English) speakers.
Just a quick note to let you know my daughter was admitted early decision to Vassar. Her SAT scores were 670 Math, 700 verbal and 760 writing. She has always done well in English and other verbal areas, so her verbal score was not unexpected.
She has not, however, been among those who are tops in math - so I am confident her math score was a result of the training received by you. You forced her to take more math practice tests than she really wanted to do, and I am positive this helped. She also seemed to have a better grasp of math shortcuts after her sessions.
As for the writing, you were extremely helpful in giving her advice which catapulted her into the top echelon of students in this area.
Thanks again for your professional and courteous instruction and the Ivy Bound methodology. Bruce K.
