DON'T TAKE CHANCES WITH YOUR FUTURE.

You've worked hard for four years, and now everything hinges on a single test.  This is probably the most important exam of your career.  Don't play games with your chances.

I've been teaching people how to take standardized tests for over a decade.  These tests - the SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, IELTS, psychometric, and psychotechnic - are not just about the material they contain.  Taking them is a skill in itself.  A skill I can teach you.

Together we’ll identify and repair your weak spots, so that the biggest factors lowering your score will be wiped out.  You'll learn every important trick and shortcut, as well as the most important sections to focus on.  By the end of our time together, you’ll know how to cut to the heart of a problem, and quickly.    

My methods are systematic; every element of your test is taken into account.  We'll apply them together.  You'll be brought through an orderly process of how to approach your test.  I'll teach you all the basics you need to know, emphasizing the things that appear most frequently.   

I'll also coach you through the test psychologically: how and when to take breaks, how to minimize nerves, and how to get through the long and exhausting exam without losing focus. 

I retake these tests regularly in order to stay up-to-date.  I know what you're going through.


Count on me to pull you through.

TOEFL & IELTS

Learn What You Want, Where You Want

You dream of an American college.  You've worked hard, your grades are good, and there's only one thing stopping you: your English exam.


The TOEFL and IELTS aren't just basic English tests.  They're sophisticated, complex exams which even native English speakers can struggle with.  I've seen too many talented students give up their dream of studying at their dream college because they couldn't make it through their English exam. 


I’ve coached dozens of students through these tests.  I’m quite familiar with the stressful time crunch on the TOEFl and IELTS; I’ve seen how difficult it is to comprise a conversation in a matter of minutes, and I know how confusing the vocabulary on these tests can be.  Experience has taught me exactly how to help.  Contact me today.

"Tova is brilliant.  I always had a problem with math, and when I first saw the math section of the GMAT I thought I'd have no chance.  Tova broke it down into small sections that I could understand.  I got into my accounting program!"

Jordan Ewings

"My son is bright, but he was solving the SAT questions too slowly and getting low scores because of that.  We went through a slew of teachers before we found Tova, who finally helped.  She showed him how to filter out details and cut directly to what was important.  We're very satisfied."

Sara Bearitz, Max's mom

"Tova guided me through the IELTS study process.  I was super nervous, and I take things in slowly, but she helped me through the speaking and the writing sections.  She's a patient, smart teacher, and she was able to see exactly why I was having trouble with a problem and explain it to me in a way I could understand.  Wonderful teacher."
