SSAT prep -Presutti

I can now do analogies properly. I liked the food/white pizza, Andrea, and I liked reading comprehension. Going into the SSAT I know how to write essays. I know the scoring of the test. They know how to properly take breaks. I’m confident going into the SSAT.

Magnet School entrance -deMello

Daniel, my WaveLength tutor, helped me with a lot of aspects for the magnet school entrance exams and the SSAT. He helped me a lot with math and made sure I knew what to do before we moved on.

High School entrance exam

Daniel was my daughter’s tutor for the Monmouth County Vocational School District (MCVSD) High School entrance exam. Her goal was to attend Biotechnology High School and we wanted her to have some preparation before she took the exam. All in all, it was money very well spent – not only did my daughter score very well on the exam, she went into it with a plan and new found confidence.

Daniel’s knowledge of the test was comprehensive. His style is relaxed and confident. He pinpoints the gaps in a student’s knowledge without harm and highlights their best attributes in order to build self-assurance. I highly recommend Daniel and look forward to working with him in the future, as my son wants to join his sister at Biotech.

Curriculum Overview


Curriculum Designer: Matthew Makrinos


My teaching focuses on problem solving through pattern recognition and streamlined mental flow-charting. This foundation upon which SAT materials and life situations are based is the constant underpinning of my class. I avoid teaching “tricks” to solving problems and focus on one universal problem solving method which functions as the corner stone of SAT reasoning and of all deductive logic. I stress study skills, mental acumen, time management, awareness and elimination of silly mistakes, and conditioning by encouraging students to do head math and discouraging the constant use of calculators, which drain confidence and encumber.

Critical Reading and Writing

Curriculum Designer: Marlee Napurano


My approach to the Critical Reading and Writing sections centers on exposing how literal and formulaic the verbal questions are. On that platform I have built structured and efficient techniques for each type of question and my students practice these techniques until their familiarity with the material makes them virtually immune to silly mistakes and the stress of the test. Along the way, I teach students to point out (and laugh at) all the tricks and traps in the questions and answer choices so that these can no longer intimidate or confuse. Focusing on what you know, not what you don’t, living by the Law of the Dictionary, staying literal, and breaking the test into a series of short, concrete missions (in 5-15 minute intervals) are the main principles of my curriculum.
