Why you'll like working with us
Whether it’s shaky confidence, a time crunch, or a simple need to get it right this time,
we’re here to help you finish strong.
And along the way, we’ll help you build skills you’ll be using long after you get in.
How we’re better for you
We take the stress out of success.
My partners and I take the sting out of prep by making a high score feel easy. It takes work, yes, but less than you expect.
Because with us, you’re doing the right work.
Start by filling out our introduction form below. These details let us get started quickly and effectively. Then gather up the following:
- A recent GRE / GMAT summary report
- Any recent practice tests you’ve attempted, with scratchwork
- A list of ways you’ve prepared for either of these tests so far
- Your evaluation of what’s been going wrong so far
Ways we’ll help you
We pride ourselves on understanding what’s in the student’s way, rather than just on explaining the material well in several ways.
Meet the GRE & GMAT team
First, let’s do logistics and strategy. You’ll begin your grad school placement test prep in an one-on-one intake session with me. Together, we’ll lay the groundwork for study strategies.
Then, it’s time for high-powered tactics. You’ll do the groundwork with personal guidance and tutoring from Michael. Deconstructing a test, and the path to right answers, has never been easier (or more interesting).

Why work with Wes?
For success on these tests, you need a difficult-to-achieve combination of skills: genuine content fluency, calculator expertise, pencil-and-paper expertise, analysis/close-reading skill, reliable pacing, self-monitoring, and emotion management. Whew! There’s too much there to admit a single recipe for success. What you need is expert help across all these domains. I start with a thorough assessment: What do you already know about the material? When do you like to study? Do you experience anxiety around tests? Are you attentive to detail? For how long can you concentrate without losing focus? What frustrates you most about particular problems?
You show me your preferred learning style, and then we teach you to use your natural strengths to excel.
Why two tutors?
We’re each expert in a different domain:
- Knitting the habits of truly successful preparation into your busy schedule
- Deconstructing each question so that you can bring your unique strengths to bear
You need both.
When should you prepare?
We should start work 8 to 20 weeks before your chosen test date.
But planning that prep starts now.
Fill out the form below as soon as you can, so that I can help you set up and schedule the right prep plan.
The right prep is just one click away.
