This is Sarai.

She helps you achieve your goals.

Sarai gets excited about the underlying logic of grammar.

She nurtures people’s ability to use their logic to structure their language and express themselves cogently.

This is why Business English, GMAT Verbal, TOEFL, copy editing, and academic editing have been her specialties since 2005.

Methodology

She’s been at it for over 10 years now and her methodology is dialed-in and on-point.

GMAT Verbal and TOEFL

Sarai equips you with more than just knowledge of the test subjects, tricks, and strategies. If that were all you needed, a prep book would seal the deal. The key to achieving top scores is a global understanding of what the test creators are trying to find out about you and a deeper conceptual understanding of how logic and language are used to that end. Hundreds of students just like you have hit their targets through the intensive one-on-one approach that Sarai uses to hone your skills.

Copy Editing and Academic Editing

Sarai goes through the grammar and punctuation of your production with a fine-toothed comb. But, the more important component of the work is helping you pinpoint what exactly you want to say. Clear writing results from clear ideas-- not the other way around. By helping you hone in on an idea, you and she together form a team to formulate your wording in a compelling way.

But, what's so special about her way of doing things? 🤔

GMAT Verbal

Understand

First, you tell Sarai your story. She wants to know everything-- your familiarity with the exam, level of vocabulary, previous materials studied (if any), strengths, weaknesses, past performance as well as the results of the Enhanced Score Reports (if you’ve already taken the exam), work schedule, and application deadlines.

Define key areas for improvement

Regardless of whether you need to cover all subjects tested on the exam or need only to reorient your approach in a few specific areas, during your lesson Sarai will plan out with you a realistic study schedule that covers everything you need to hit your target score, and she will be honest with you about what is achievable your given time frame.

React to challenges

Is there a hit-your-mark-or-your-money-back guarantee? Nope. There are psychological factors and even an element of luck that play into this game. But these are bumps along the way. The closest thing you have to a guarantee is your repeated performance on simulations. Integrate, practice, and prove yourself on three simulations in a row, and you enter the test center with the self-confidence you need to perform your best and reproduce those results.

TOEFL

Get all the strategies to hit the ground running

Regardless of your level, knowing exactly what to expect from the TOEFL and what the TOEFL expects from you is key. In the first lesson we go through all the strategies to adopt for the Reading and Listening sections, as well as what to say, how to say it, and, no less importantly, what not to say in the Speaking and Writing sections.

It is then strongly urged that you purchase the ETS Official Tests Book. In general, free online materials from other companies as well as simulations created by other companies tend to be of questionable quality, as the TOEFL is a difficult exam to simulate. This is also the best bang for your buck, as you end up paying just $5 per official retired exam.

After you have done one simulation and sent Sarai your writing and speaking responses, you will do a follow-up lesson in which you go through the responses, ironing out the issues holding you back (be they grammar, spelling, topic familiarity, idea generation, etc.).

Sarai doesn’t build castles in the sky. During your lesson, she will plan out with your a realistic study schedule that covers everything you need to hit your target score, and will be honest about what is achievable within your given time frame.

Practice and Review

The best way to know if you're ready is to do simulations to identify your level. With Sarai by your side, you can be confident knowing that each problem you encounter will be identified and remedied.

That sounds great, but I have a few questions..

Testimonials

Nisreen (GMAT 710, TOEFL 110)

“Being a proficient English writer/speaker is one thing, being a proficient language teacher is another thing, and being a proficient GMAT English teacher is a whole other thing by itself. Sarai was all three. She gave me a lot of confidence preparing for a very overwhelmingly stressful exam.The most special thing about her is her positive attitude and constant encouragement. She always managed to make me feel competent and well prepared, despite my harsh self-criticism and doubt. Finally, she cares. She pushed me to overcome my self-doubt and go beyond. Not anyone can do that.”
