My SAT Scores

Below┬áis the score report from my latest Official SAT test, which I took in Cambridge in May of 2013. I took this as a refresher when I decided to continue teaching here in London. As you can see, it’s not a perfect score. I misunderstood two questions based on table data and I couldn’t figure out the last math question in time! But, as this goes to show, you don’t need a perfect score to get into Harvard (or any other school, for that matter). It also shows that no one is perfect, and even a veteran tutor can experience a testing hiccup. What’s important is to demonstrate competency.

After receiving the score report, I ordered the Q&A results so I could see the actual questions I had missed; I quickly saw where I had gone wrong. Subsequently, I have taught and taken hundreds of practice math sections and scored perfectly – including on the harder Level 1 and Level 2 Mathematics SAT II Subject Tests. Rest assured, you’ll get expert instruction.

If you’re curious, I scored a 1510 (out of 1600) on the SAT in 1992 when I was a senior in high school. My breakdown then was 760 Verbal, 750 Math and it was easily good enough to get me into Harvard.
