    SAT/ACT Preparation - For Paris Lycéens/High School students trying to enter US universities
    I offer one-to-one SAT preparation sessions for students in Paris looking to enter American Universities. My lessons will focus on both the reading and writing sections and mathematics section. For the first I will work with students to improve their English reading and reasoning ability and practice writing the short essays on the topics from past-papers. The maths sessions will include close work on previous problems and general mathematics principles required for the exam. I will also review exam technique and approach with my students. The SATs/ACT are long exams with high-time pressure and good time management is crucial for achieving a high score. A little more about me: I am English/Irish and live in Paris. I entered the US university system as a foreign student after achieving a 1480 in my SATs in 2016. I attended New York University (2016-2020) achieving a GPA of 3.96 and finished in the top 1% of my graduation class. I also completed the post-graduate GRE aptitude tests and achieved scores in the 91st percentile. I then attended École Normale Supérieure and attained my masters' degree in 2022.
