I have high standards, but like to encourage and enjoy seeing my students go beyond where they thought they could get. I have taught underprivileged kids as well as gifted kids.
My scores on both Math and Verbal on the SATs were well into the 99th percentile rank. My 1540 on my SAT in 1992 (where the 99th percentile was in the low 1400s) is equivalent to a perfect score now. I also have an MBA, and my GMAT score was 720, 95th percentile rank. I'm also familiar with GRE questions and have gotten 98th percentile ranks on LSAT practice tests.
