Hello / Привет / 你好 / नमस्ते / שלום and welcome to my website! My name is Ethan and I offer online SAT / ACT, math, and chess lessons.

In 2017 I graduated with a Math Bachelor's degree from the University of Washington in Seattle at the age of 19. Since then I've helped over 60 students achieve their SAT and ACT score goals. The average improvement with me is 180 points on the SAT and 5 points on the ACT (the difference between Florida State and UC Berkeley). I've scored in the 99th percentile on both tests and love helping students beat these tests. I've also helped more than 200 students improve their math and chess skills (I am a chess master). You can take a look at my rates and reviews page. Also, feel free to use anything you like on my resources page.

Email me at or fill out the contact form for a free consultation.

For online lessons I use Zoom or Google Meets. One minute before the lesson is about to begin, I email students a link to a video call meeting room. During lessons I use tools such as online white boards, PDF editors, and screen sharing. In practice, "one hour" lessons usually last around 65-70 minutes. After each lesson I send a homework assignment through email, along with some commentary.

My network of tutors also teach the following subjects:

  • Music

  • Writing

  • Russian

  • Philosophy

  • Computer Science

  • Biology, Chemistry, Physics
