I have been working with various tutors for about 1 year now, all Praxis math specifically, and Rich has been by far the best overall learning experience. Rich is very patient with his work approach and also goes out of his way to prepare homework for me to work on, as well as for our meeting sessions. I have felt more and more confident after each of our sessions and a lot of that has to do with the way that Rich helps me prepare!

I have worked with hundreds of students both in person and online helping them prepare for the SAT. Using Skype or Facetime for audio/video and a free online whiteboard to demonstrate solutions, online students achieve results that are indistinguishable from those of students receiving in-person tutoring. Dozens of testimonials available HERE.
All students receive a FREE 122-page spiral-bound workbook of original materials designed by me to best help students prepare for the SAT, including strategies, relevant content, and practice problems and questions. Additionally I email students targeted math problems related to those they find challenging, so each students gets repetition with each type of problem that leads to mastery.
Available Monday-Saturday 9am-10pm for flexible scheduling. This is my full-time job so each student receives the commitment necessary to succeed.
80% of students with whom I have worked have seen score increases (that includes those who don’t do all of the homework!), with an average (Old) SAT score increase of 185 points (55 points in Math, 50 points in Reading, and 80 points in Writing, on average).
Most students begin 2-3 months before desired test date. Each program is designed with the specific student’s goals and focus in mind. No time is wasted as we identify areas in need of instruction and practice and address these swiftly.

Rich has been very accommodating with my son’s schedule of testing dates according to when his geometry teacher posts them. He is very patient & my son really connects with him. He has given my son the extra confidence & tools that he needs to succeed!
He is helping my son with a very tough AP course. He’s been thorough, patient and very encouraging in addition to having superior subject matter knowledge.
I would recommend Rich to anyone looking to improve on the ACT or SAT. He tailors his style and approach to fit the personality and learning process of the student. By doing this, the task of improving broad understanding in academics is dramatically lessened. I would have to say that Rich did actually make taking the ACT and the tutoring sessions enjoyable. Rich is a grade A tutor and helped me tremendously. Thank you!
Rich is patient, helpful, and adapts his method of teaching to what will work best for you. In only 2 sessions Rich helped me bring me up to my goal score of 2000!
I would absolutely recommend Rich as an SAT tutor. Not only did I learn more math, reading, and writing skills, but I also learned how to approach and take the test. He is very patient. I learned new ways to approach math problems, ways that my math classes in school did not cover. I came into the test feeling much more prepared than before.
I wanted to let you know that B got accepted to UNC Wilmington, which was one of his top 2 choices. I believe that his final SAT scores were a big factor in his getting accepted. Thank you again for helping B reach those numbers.
Rich was such a great tutor. Although I only worked with him for a month, I improved much more than I expected on the SATs. He did not just give me pages and pages of practice tests to do- he went through plenty of problems with me one-on-one, and actually taught me how to solve and prepare for various kinds of questions. If I didn’t know how to figure out a math problem, he would not just simply tell me the answer, he would give me hints, offer a method, or get me started on how to work through a problem of that kind. He would keep track of what kinds of math questions I would struggle with, and make up practice worksheets specifically catered to that need. We would work on a specific area in a subject until I felt confident in it and understood it completely.
We only worked on Critical Reading and grammar from the Writing section for almost two hours total, but even still I improved greatly on these sections. He provided a very simple approach to the grammar rules, and no, he did not have me memorizing hundreds of vocabulary words. I would work through a section, check the answers with him, and then he would help me understand why I made the mistakes I did. I would highly recommend Rich as a tutor.
Fantastic content knowledge! He honed in on K’s specific areas of concern within one lesson and was able to help her understand the concepts so that she could redo the problem successfully. He consistently questioned her thinking process in order to determine where she was having issues. Highly effective 🙂
Thanks so much for your help with K’s SAT preparation. I wanted to let you know that K did right in the range you predicted on his January SATs with a total score of 1950.
I felt more confident after each tutoring session about how to approach each test, use my time effectively on the tests, and solve problems on the tests correctly. My scores in 2 sections of the SAT test – reading and writing – both increased about 100 points after tutoring with Mr. Koshgerian! Definitely work with Mr. Koshgerian – he is accommodating, approachable and patient. He really knows what he is doing with these standardized tests and will help you understand them, too!
Once again we can’t thank you enough for your time along with dedication. Overall, I think N did pretty well… Once again, THANK YOU
