Meet a Durban SAT Tutor: Zeke S.

Zeke S. describes himself as being "very" familiar with the concept of standardized tests, having worked with professional instructors and tutors after being diagnosed with ADHD as a child. Zeke struggled to sit still and pay attention in class and even though he studied diligently for tests, his grades never reflected his extensive preparation. "It was so frustrating," he recalls, "trying so hard and feeling like I was just too different to ever succeed at school." After he was diagnosed with ADHD, his academic difficulties could be understood in a different light, which gave him hope that things at school might be different moving forward. His parents worked closely with his school to find a tutor for him, someone who could teach effective test-taking strategies and guide Zeke to study in ways that allowed him to remember and recall the information. "Having a diagnosis and working with a tutor didn't magically make everything about school easy for me," Zeke is quick to share, "but for the first time in my life, I'd seen that I was capable of learning and doing well on tests, and that gave me the motivation I needed to keep working hard." 

A native of Connecticut, Zeke grew up dreaming of attending Yale University but knew there was no way his family could afford such a prestigious school even if he managed to be accepted. "If I really wanted to go there, I would have to receive financial assistance, and after doing a ton of research, I decided a high SAT score was a realistic way of getting scholarships. So, I decided I would work however hard I needed to in order to ace the SAT," Zeke says with a laugh. Zeke worked with his long-time tutor to prepare for the SAT, in addition to participating in an online prep course that offered him flexibility around his ongoing commitments and extracurricular activities. "When it was time to take the SAT for real, I'd taken so many practice tests and studied so many questions, nothing was a surprise, and I was able to relax enough to work to my full potential." 

Zeke's hard work and dedication were rewarded when he not only received his official acceptance letter to Yale University, but also received generous offers of financial aid, ensuring he could afford to attend the school of his dreams due almost entirely to his outstanding SAT score. Zeke graduated from Yale with a degree in education before obtaining his master's degree in teaching from Penn State. He ultimately accepted a position with a well-known educational consulting company in the Philadelphia area where he was able to work with schools around the world on identifying better ways to serve the needs of students with learning differences, ensuring other children would receive the support that had been so beneficial to him as a child. 

When Zeke's husband was given an opportunity for a promotion that required the couple to relocate to South Africa, Zeke was ecstatic to explore more of the world and live outside of the United States. He continued to work towards ensuring equal access to education for everyone, even going so far as to offer evening and weekend seminars for neurodiverse high school students on preparing for the SAT, using the skills he'd developed from his own education and tutoring experiences. His workshops became so popular that we at the Durban office of Manhattan Review reached out to Zeke about joining our team, and we couldn't have been happier when he accepted. "Working with neurodiverse students is the best," grins Zeke. "They're not afraid to think differently, and that's why they're going to change the world." When Zeke isn't helping Durban students excel on the SAT, he can be found riding horses on the beach, visiting the Drakensberg Mountains for spectacular stargazing, and enjoying a cup of coffee at his favorite local café with his husband.
