Michael D

Atlanta, GA

Experienced, Successful SAT & ACT Instructor



My name is Michael Davis. Although I was born in Maryland, I consider myself a native of Georgia. I have lived just outside of Atlanta since I was 6 years old. I have a BA from Loyola University in New Orleans and an MA from Emory University in Atlanta. In addition to being a teacher and tutor, I am an artist and musician. I have been a teacher for 35 years. I taught high school for 25 years, and I have been tutoring a wide variety of subjects, especially the SAT and ACT for the last 10 years. Two students that I worked with scored perfect scores on the SAT. The overwhelming majority of my students have seen significant increases in their scores. I believe that success on the SAT or the ACT requires habitual practice; I also believe that the best practice is to work through actual tests. After working with me, the "typical" student will have worked through several thousand questions/problems. Although it sounds daunting, it's actually a process that yields results quickly; this provides early encouragement and confidence that ultimately translates into success on the actual day of the test. While there are certain tricks, strategies, and short-cuts that I show my students, the emphasis is on the student diligently and regularly working through the material, identifying strengths and weakness, good and bad habits, positive and negative trends, and parlaying those insights into successful test preparation. If you are ready to do the work, I'm ready to help you get the score you want to get!
