Meet Dr. Nathan Hurwitz, the Guru of Graduate School Entrance Exams.
Gymnast Simone Biles, swimmer Michael Phelps, and sprinter Usain Bolt are the top athletes in their events in the world today. They got there through rigorous training, careful analysis of their practice sessions, and guidance from great coaches.
Graduate school exams are competitive events—you want to optimize your score to be in the highest percentile, ahead of the pack. Unlike an athlete, you are not bound by the limitations of your physical prowess; but like an athlete, you need effective training, monitored practice, and a coach who will keep you on track to compete at the highest levels.
I am Dr. Nathan Hurwitz, "the Guru of Graduate School Exams," and I can help you reach your academic goals. I am a tenured university professor—with degrees from NYU, Northwestern, and the University of Pittsburgh—who works with students worldwide, helping them achieve their academic dreams. I begin by working with you to create a study plan, which I will help you maintain. Then, through our regularly scheduled meetings, I will become your tutor, guide, cheering section, conscience, and coach.
