Meet One of our New Orleans GMAT Tutors
Ivan began his work in standardized test prep in 1992, and has been involved in every aspect of the business since then. He served as Academic Director for one the nations largest prep companies, writing course material and training hundreds of test prep teachers in NYC. He has also tutored for many smaller companies and has established a track record of consistent success and a reputation for pedagogical excellence. His scores on the LSAT, GMAT and GRE are all in the 99th percentile; and he is now a Next Step instructor based locally in New Orleans, Louisiana.
What common concerns do your students have?
The most common concern I encounter with students preparing for the LSAT, GMAT or GRE is the fear that they cannot master the material — that the math or verbal components of the exam are beyond their natural abilities. But by showing students that they don’t need to be math or verbal experts in order to achieve their goal scores — that they only need to focus on the small portion of material that their exams incorporate — I can allay this concern and make students feel comfortable and confident in their preparation.
What the the number one thing a student can do to ensure success on test day?
The most important thing that a student can do to ensure success on Test Day is to remain cool, calm and collected — and to not allow nerves to affect their performance. This is why I train my students in relaxation techniques and mnemonic exercises so they are able to efficiently employ what they have learned from our work together on their actual exam. Moreover, this is also why we utilize full-length practice exams leading up to Test Day in order to mimic the real experience and to build confidence when dealing with the clock and the stress that it produces.
What should students expect when working with you?
When a student hires me as a tutor, he/she can expect two things: absolute expertise and personal attention above-and-beyond the call of duty. First of all, I began my work in standardized test preparation in 1992, and am familiar with every nook and cranny of these exams — and can instruct students on every useful approach and strategy for all the individual question types that appear. Moreover, I always make myself available to students in-between our tutoring sessions to answer questions and to speak to their concerns via email or phone; and I always spend the time to individualize lesson plans and study schedules — because I care.
What is one of your more memorable student success stories?
One student stands out as my most memorable success story — a young woman who began with a particularly low baseline diagnostic score and who persevered through four administrations of the LSAT to achieve her goals. She was not naturally talented at standardized test-taking, had difficulty assimilating the material on the exam, but demonstrated an incredible work-ethic and amazing dedication — the hardest working student I have ever tutored. And because she was so driven, I went far above-and-beyond the call of duty to help her conquer the exam. This was a student who earned my total respect.
